My Rating: (4 out of 5)
Alkaff Mansion. It is located at the Telok Blangah Hill Park. The mansion was previously built in 1918 for the Alkaffs family as their retreat and for entertaining their guest. It is a great and popular location for the weddings. I love the tranquil surroundings. I have went Alkaff Mansion a couple of times. The most attractive point is the ambience. It gives out a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. They also served great dishes. The service is also swift and friendly. I will defintely come back again.
The place was quite crowded but it still give out a romantic and relaxing ambience. They have also their own bar. You can go for a drink even if you already had your meal.
It was during restaurant week and it was quite crowded. The service staff are very swift in their ordering and serving of the dish. When I notify them that it is a birthday celebration, they were so sweet to provide a complimentary dessert and sing Happy Birthday song to us.
We had the following
They offer 2 types of complimentary bread. They are soft and warm.
Italian “Burratina” from Andria with Rocket Salad & “San Marazano” Tomatoes. I never really how to appreciate Burratina. It is a fresh Italian cheese (made from mozzarella and cream). There is an outer shell which is made up of solid mozzarella and the inside is actually mozzarella and cream. I still finish it though. The salad and tomatoes are fresh.
Homemade Seafood Ravioli with Saffron Sauce. Ravioli is a type of filled pasta. It reminds me of our chinese style dumplings which is always my favourite. Yummy!
Slow Cooked Australian Lamb Rack with Oven Baked Pumpkin & Whole Grain Mustard Sauce. The lamb rack was a bit dry so it wasn’t very good. Perhaps next time try their beef.
Cheese Cake with Dark Cherry Compote. A beautiful presentation. The cheese cake is smooth complement well with the Dark Cherry Compote.
A lovely Birthday Dessert.
