Food Review : Fullhouse Signature @ Clarke Quay

image
For a lot of cafe hoppers, I am sure you have some impression of this very beautiful theme cafe at Hotel Rendezvous named Fullhouse cafe. However the cafe has ceased the business due to some management issue earlier this year. I don't know about you but I was very disappointed when it did as I really love the princessy brightly lit cafe. Good news for me that it has made a coming back at Clarke Quay. Best of all, last Wednesday (3/11/2013), I was very blessed to be invited to Fullhouse Signature for a food tasting party organsied by Mapwerkz together wit 24 other bloggers.

Located at Clarke Quay (the first block on the left after you cross the Read Bridge) is easily access via MRT(Clarke Quay MRT and future Fort Canning MRT) and other public transport.

Once you come out of the lift  at level 2, you will be greet by the lovely Fullhouse family (4 mascots) : Thomas(Dad), Tracy(mum), Tony(son) and Tiffani (daughter).

Retaining some of the Korean princessy decoration from previous cafe, Fullhouse signature is has also added other deco that are fixed up by the restaurant manager and owner. On top of the "dinning room", there are also a place for you to chill, dating and even a bridal room where you can try out & buy the gowns here!

There is also a stage in the "living room" where you can hold small party, solemnisation, corporate events or other events and gatherings.

First dish oof the night is Cream of forest mushroom ($9). This is one of the best that I have had beside those homecooked ones. It is creamy and thick with lotsa mushrooms bits. Definitely a perfect combi with the complimentary garlic bread that comes with the soup.
image
Crunchy Cheese Sticks ($11)are served in a big porcelain spoon. It is mozzarella cheese stick enveloped by a crispy crunchy layer of breadcrumbs. Personally I find it a bit bland and I think it's best eaten hot.
image
Golden Crabmeat Ball ($11) is served with homemade cheese cream. This also one of the dish that was created by the chefs in Fullhouse signature and is best eaten together( crabmeat ball and cheese cream).
image
Iltalian Meatball ($17) is another creation from the chefs. Personally I like the meatball as it does not has any overwhelming beefy taste. On top of that, it's not over cooked.
image
Fullhouse Ravioli ($25) is one of Fullhouse signature. Please don't get intimated by the huge ravioli. They are actually stuffed with prawns, squids and spinach. Oven backed with cheese on top. =)
image
Braised Lamb Shank ($29) here is served in a relatively huge portion. I would recommend 2 to share. The lamb shank is first simmered in red wine jus and served with mashed potato and vegetable. Personally I like the lamb shank as the meat is really tender and the gaminess of the lamb wasn't overwhelming.
image
Scallop Aglio Spaghetti ($22) is served 4 huge scallops. I like the way the spaghetti was cooked, al dente and flavourful with tinge of garlicky aftertaste.
image
Grilled Chicken Chop with Raisin Black Pepper Sauce ($25) is cooked just nice and juicy and served with a rather special and unique sauce.
image
Banana Paradise ($9) is crispy on the outside and with the soft sweet banana on the inside served with homemade vanilla ice cream. Personally I feel that it is ang moh version of goreng pisang, do give it a try if you are a goreng pisang lover to see whether this is better than the usual ones you had.
image
Molten Chocolate Cake ($9) is one of the highlight of the night. Most of the girls love molten chocolate cake isn't it? The chocolate cake is rather intense in the chocolate taste (in the good way) . It paired quite well with the homemade vanilla ice cream and best of all the strawberry are very sweet. =)
image
Overall it was a good food tasting session meeting fellow bloggers and also heaps of photo taking. I would highly recommend this place for girls night out, gathering and chillout. What's more, inconjunction with the grand opening, from now till 10th Dec 2013, Fullhouse is also offering a great offer for my readers! 1 for 1 just for you, my dearest!
