My birthday posts seem to be never-ending! LOL. *Raises white flag* In recent years, my parents would ask me to choose where I wanted to celebrate my birthday and this time, I chose The Coastal Settlement (TCS)! Well, I have always wanted to check this place out but it’s quite inaccessible, unless you drive and know your directions well.
THe journey to Changi from our place took us close to an hour by car. I was thinking to myself that thank goodness I didn’t attempt to make a trip on my own! TCS is located along Netheravon Road (honestly, have you even heard of it?!) near Changi Beach Club and the old Changi hospital. The latter is kinda spooky but oh wells..
Mostly pictures in this post! :P
There’s kinda like an area for kids to play! Cool right? :D
Alfresco dining looks good too. But I’m not sure about the mozzies.
My parents used to go dating on my dad’s motorbike! Not Vespa la. Hahaha.
Drizzled with sweet and sour spicy sauce, the Coastal Wings and Drumlets ($14) are perfect for sharing! They were not overly fried and the meat was very tender.
The Truffle Fries ($15) were a major let down though :( Couldn’t detect any hints of truffle oil and I don’t think they should serve truffle fries with their house tomato relish. On hindsight, we should have ordered the portobello fries, which I think would be served with truffle mayonnaise.
We shared a plate of Calamari ($14) as well. The salt and peppered squid was actually kinda soggy but wasn’t too bad taste wise.
TCS has quite a range of pizzas on their menu and we decided to have the Prosciutto & Arugula Pizza ($22). Thin biscuit like pizza base topped with 16 months aged prosciutto, baby tomatoes, mozzarella & cheddar, shaved parmesan cheese and arugula was deliciously savory. Strongly recommend this!
My mum had the Nasi Lemak ($16) which is the most expensive plate of nasi lemak that I had ever come across. Besides the usual fried chicken and sunny side up egg, this came with tiger prawns too.
The hubby and I chose cream based pastas and it was a pretty bad idea because we had major difficulty trying to finish our food. LOL. The Chicken Miso Carbonara ($22) wasn’t too bad. It’s something that can satisfy your creamy pasta craving. Felt that the sauce could be more savory though.
I’m pretty sure that a good amount of truffle oil had been added into our Truffle Mushroom Fettuccine ($21)! We could smell it from a distance when it was being placed on our table. Anyway misterchewy and I are crazy over anything truffle right now! :P This dish was superb and the mushrooms were really juicy. I would recommend this for sharing though. A little too creamy for me to finish this on my own. Even misterchewy was unable to do so!
My brother stuck to the safe option of having Cod ‘N’ Chips ($26) which was served with thick cut fries, mesclun salad, wasabi tobiko mayonnaise.
The bill came up to about $300 which I hadn’t expect even though we ordered a considerable amount of food and drinks. In any case, just wanna thank my parents for this lovely birthday treat! :)
