You might have seen Earle Swensen’s and wonder, is it the same as Swensen’s? Nope, Earle Swensen’s is an elevated dining place where premium seafood and meats are served through charbroil preparation. Recently, it has launched a new menu showcasing the brand’s knack for putting its own interesting interpretation on trending dishes and well-loved classics.
The appetisers include Shrimply the Best ($9.50++) which is our familiar breaded shrimp, and Grilled Stuffed Mid-Wings ($10.90++) that combines chicken wings and satay. Special shout-out to the accompanying dip – a mix of peanut butter and honey – which was simply addictive!
Onward to the mains, the Pineapple Beef Rendang Baked Rice ($23.90++) was a successful attempt at marrying local and Western food. The lemongrass-infused rice is baked with cream sauce under a thick, luscious layer of mozzarella and cheddar. Mmm, sedap!
Seafood lovers may like the classic Seafood Boston Roll ($34.90++), which is generous in the poached Boston lobster, cut into bite-sized chunks. Alternatively, meat lovers may opt for the Braised US Beef Ribs ($69.90++). Gigantic enough for two persons, this dish could be a little messy to eat but it’ll be worth it – the meat is fork-tender and delicious with the homemade BBQ sauce!
My personal favourite is the Grilled Cod Fish with Wild Rice Broth ($37.90++). The cod fish was fresh, tender, while the Shimeiji mushrooms and lemongrass wild rice added more flavours to the dish, making it such a comfort food.
Of course, Earle Swensen’s being a sister restaurant of Swensen’s, it has to offer desserts right? The Mocha Affogato ($12.50++) stands out with the mini ice cream cone and the flaky mille feuille puff pastry sticks for you to dip in the pool of ice cream and espresso shot.
With a salad buffet bar that’s complimentary with any main dish ordered, Earle Swensen’s is a place to head to for quality food with family or friends.
