Lunch at Swensen's - Comfort Food for Years

Swensen's has been around for years, with many outlets around Singapore. What usually comes to mind when one mentions the name of this All-American chain restaurant here, ice cream? i don't know about you, but since young I have always enjoyed their delicious Fish & Chips with the firm dory flesh that doesnt fall apart at knifepoint, or the absolutely scrumptious Crayfish Pasta.

Today, however, I would like to mention my absolute favorite here - the Salmon and Mushroom Baked Rice (SGD$12.90).

So how this dish is formed is, a delicious brown mushroom sauce and cheese are slathered generously over over an eye-shaped bowl of egg-mushroom fried rice. Then it is set to bake, along with the salmon. It may be a simple dish, but the flavor is absolute.

The rice is not just plain rice, but its fried with egg, button mushroom and I believe there's garlic as well. The tasty brown sauce is thick, and comes with generous slivers of shiitake mushrooms, thus adding bounce to the entire dish. The smoked salmon itself is saccharine in its own sea-worthiness, and topped with melted cheese, is completely wholesome.

Of course, there are many who might prefer the Chicken Baked Ruce or Curry Chicken Baked Rice, as both are delicious too. But if you haven't tried the Salmon one, do give it a try!
