Seah Street Deli

After a 6 month hiatus, I decided to renew my acquaintance with Seah Street Deli @Raffles hotel as I happened to be in the vicinity to help my mum pick up her handphone from the repair shop. I've always liked the upbeat atmostphere at Seah Street Deli. It never fails to bring back the good days of eating at the diners near my apartment in Canada.

Well, we stepped into the eatery at around 1930hrs and it was seriously packed. We had to wait for about 5 mins for an empty table, which I felt was reasonable, given that it was a saturday and it was dinner time. I ordered beef pot roast while my gf ordered cheese macaroni with chicken. The dishes came in about 10 mins and I was pleasently surprised how tasty my pot roast was. The beef was thinly sliced and the gravy wasn't too salty. Sure, it wasn't top grade beef or anything, but it sure tasted great.(To me that is)My gf's cheese macaroni was good too, with lots of cheese and grilled chicken to top it up.(I think they used cheddar cheese)My gf doesn't usually take macaroni, so its relatively rare that she would comment that the macaroni is nice.

The highlight of the day was the chocolate decadence. It was a huge slice of chocolate cake with lots of chocolate and a little rum(I think. Tasted like it.) in between.It was pretty sweet and we liked it. (We have sweet tooths)Although it was shared between the both of us, we couldn't finish it.

Overall, I liked it for the ambience and service, but it would be better if it wasn't so noisy. The jukebox could hardly be heard. No complaints about the price though. Cost us about $58/- including taxes and free flow ice tea. Will definitely be back to patronize.

Macaroni with cheese and grilled chicken


The humongous Chocolate Decadence




Final Verdict:
Ambience:6.5/10
Service:7/10
Food:7/10
Value for money:7/10

Overall:6.875/10

On a side note, after dinner we happened to walk past the Padang and lo and behold, we managed to catch the fireworks display. It was simply breathtaking. Happy birthday Singapore!

The beef pot roast looks good. I think I'll try it the next time I go there. I had the fried steak the last time which while not terrible, wasn't really something to talk about.

Honestly speaking, I've not tried anything at Seah Street Deli other then what you see in the pictures and the Philly cheese steak, which was a joke.
