It was a lazy Sunday afternoon as I made my way down to Orchard Road to do some last minute shopping for Lunar New Year. Met up with my partner at Somerset MRT station and we decided to go to Oriole Cafe & Bar at Pan Pacific Serviced Suites for lunch since it is just next door to the station. In addition, I know the Entertainer App has 1-for-1 main promotion for Oriole Cafe & Bar.
Cafe Latte 4/5
I was quite lucky to get a seat pretty quickly. I had my usual Cafe Latte ($5.5/$6.5) to kick start my day. The aromatic single shot espresso has quite a body and I enjoyed the bittersweet taste of caffeine.
Garlic Prawn Risotto 4/5
My partner had the Garlic Prawn Risotto ($25) which was cooked beautifully with the arborio rice infused with the prawn bisque. The crunchy grilled garlic prawns and asparagus provided the needed textures. A very robust and enjoyable plate of risotto.
Jamaican Jerk Chicken 4/5
I decided to try to Jamaican Jerk Chicken ($22) that comes with grilled jerk rub baby chicken, corn salso and crispy onion rings. The dry rub with its spices was quite flavourful. The chicken had a nice charred grilled taste on the outside while still tender and juicy inside.
Once again with the Entertainer App 1-for-1 main promotion, I saved $22 for the Jamaican Jerk Chicken. I need only pay for the Garlic Prawn Risotto. With good food and coffee, I am sure I will be back at Oriole Cafe & Bar to either have a cup of coffee or try the other items in the menu.
