Olive Vine Restaurant @ Marina Square

I chanced upon Olive Restaurant after a visit to Alive Musuem. Since it’s time for dinner, my dinner partner and I decided to give it a try. The restaurant is a place for Christian fellowships to chill and gather together as there are Christian books available on the rack. Diners can have their pick for a good read throughout the dinning session.

Menu was served upon seated. However, ordering will be at the cashier counter. Payment are made upon ordering and they only accept cash and nets only. Thus, there is no service charge applicable but 7%GST is applicable though.Olive Restaurant Marina Square 3Olive Restaurant Marina Square 4

I had Pork Steak Aglio Olio S$10.90 which served in a generous portion. Add on S$2.00 to complete the meal with a glass of ice lemon tea. The texture of the pork steak was tender and just nice not too dry. With the price offer, the thickness of the pork is acceptable considering the portion served.Olive Restaurant Marina SquareOlive Restaurant Marina Square 1

My friend had Deep Fried Fish Alfredo S$10.90. Generous serving I would say with the price offered. The fish was nicely fried to cripsy golden colour. It compliments with the alfredo sauce when you dip it.Olive Restaurant Marina Square 2

Total dinner was S$25.50 for 2 pax which is quite affordable especially in shopping malls. With air-conditioned and costly dinning ambience, I would suggest to give it a try. Definitely a budget and affordable place for western fusion cuisine.

 Did I mentioned that McDonald’s has come up with Delight 500? Delight 500 features the popular favourites such as Filet-O-Fish and McChicken.

The Tiramisu Hero Cafe

The Tiramisu Hero Cafe is opened by blogger, Peggy and her partner. They started off selling tiramisu online and slowly expand their business to cafe. Finally got a chance to drop by with my sister on Friday night for dinner.
The cafe is decorated with pretty exterior garden theme with grass patch and interesting glittering ornamental furniture for interior. The cafe has a little corner that sell accessories and pretty stuffs.
For ordering, we will need to order at the cashier counter and make payment upon ordering. The orders are then served by the service staffs. Sister ordered Chef chef curry baked rice S$12.50. The cheese baked rice with curry flavor adds a creamy taste. Overall taste is similar like having japanese curry rice.The Tiramisu Hero 1
I had Baked Dory Fish Rice in Alfredo Sauce S$14.00. Buttered rice baked in creamy alfredo sauce with dory fish and brocooli. I personally find the fish tasted salty but the cheese topping on the dish was baked to golden yellowish that enhance the rice flavor though.The TiramisuHero 2
Finally got the chance to try their specialty tiramisu, Momma Hero S$7.50 original flavor. It comes in a jar with nice packaging. Perhaps many people raved about the goodness of the dessert, I personally feel that the taste has less alcoholic taste. However, the layer presentation of it was quite interesting though.The Tiramisu Hero 3 The Tiramisu Hero
Total bill was S$34.00 inclusive of 10% service charge. No GST charges applicable.
