Welcome to Orchard Road !!!!!
Friday night, one of the busiest day of weekdays, and it's my payday too. It's been a while, since we visited Megamall too, of course, after buying something for our kids, and it is also advance payday that time, we have a chance of discovering another food trip for my blog, I'm really a fan of eating different kind of dishes and cuisine, but it has to be pork, chicken and beef....hehehehe...because im not eating fish dishes, so another unexpected food discovery we recently had, Orchard Road… a Singaporean food chain located in Megamall. I heard singaporean dishes taste well and this is our first time to eat and dine in a Singaporean Restaurant.
Orchard Road Entrance Area
Here's my wife paying...(orange shirt)
Orchard Road's open pay counter
As the name implies, they specialize in Singaporean food. Singaporean food is an amalgam of Malay, Chinese, Indonesian, Thai, and Indian food – Hainanese Chicken, Dumplings, Tom Yum, Chicken Curry, etc. What I love about the store is that the seats are laid out around a open kitchen which is enclosed in glass. As in you can see everything the chefs do while preparing your food. It gives off a very nice hawker vibe so it adds to the authenticity of the experience. But I can definitely say that Orchard Road is different from other resto's because,
(1) they have their own order style, do you remember using PCOS machine on elections, hehehehe....
(2) the food tastes better (as this is our 1st time to eat and dine singaporean dishes),
(3) for me, their prices are more reasonable,
(4) located in Mega Mall, very much accessible to everyone, that are craving for Singaporean dishes.
(5) quick service,
(6) friendly crews, and most important of it all is,
(7) taking pictures is allowed…yes!!!!
Here are some shots of Orchard Road’s open kitchen and pay counter.
Once you arrived, you will be given this order slip, you just have to select your desired foods and drinks then give it to the cashier when done. You will be given a number and have to wait for your order to be served. Waiting time was just fine.
Orchard Road Menu and Order Form
So here we go again, seeing the menu with different types of food, we can’t easily decide on what to order and just ordered what we feel and think would be great for us…and for few minutes of walking and decision making..we finally come up with this orders...we were just 2 and our order was really too much for us and so we even had some take homes for our kids.....hehe....
Black Pepper Pork Rice @ P145
Black Pepper Pork Rice, one of their most ordered dishes coming from the Mini Wok or Kuali set. It tasted really delicious and with good amount of serving.Wanton Noodle Soup @ P135
Char Kway Teow @ P150
We also had Char Kway Teow, our favorite stir-fry noodles, very tasty and we both loved it!
Another favorite food, Satay Chicken(my wife's choice), Singapore’s barbecued style dish with peanut sauce. Flavor tasted strong and rich. Peanut sauce was a bit spicy.
Shrimp Dumplings 3 pcs @ P99
We can’t eat without dimsum and so we ordered for their Shrimp Dumplings (my wife just ate this because i don't eat shrimps instead i get the wanton on her soup...hehehehe); tasted just the usual… Good!
Teh Tarik (Iced) @ P50As for our drinks, I had Pepsi Soda and my wife had Iced Teh Tarik. Teh Tarik is tea with condensed milk, you can have it hot or iced. As i tried it tasted good and reasonably priced.
I maybe not a fun of eating singaporean dishes but i think know, i'm already hooked up..hehehehe...For me everything is good - food, service, price and location. I hope they can maintain this positive look, good quality and service.
Thanks!!!! Orchard Road for giving us the opportunity to taste singaporean dishes. By the way, Orchard Road is named after the popular road in Singapore that is known for retail, entertaiment, and food hub. While here in Manila, Orchard Road is a Singaporean food stop located inside 3rd flr. Bridgeway, SM Mega Mall, Mandaluyong City.Satay Chicken 4 sticks @ P110
