Having discovered and dined at Times Square Bar & Grill before (review here), I decided to revisit this nice hidden find right beside Katong 112 Mall, for catching up with some favourite girls. It was a public holiday during lunchtime, and I was surprised that this place was very quiet. The previous crew has changed as well.
Anyway, to refresh your memory or introduce (to new readers) the concept of Times Square Restaurant - bedecked in bright neon urban colours and spirit of New York City itself, cuisine is pretty much American with Singaporean / local twists to it. The art gallery setting and warm service of the staff should beckon crowds, and they welcome events, functions and weddings as well.
Moving on, food! Garlic Prawn Spaghetti (SGD$18.00) was pretty good- pasta done al dente but flavour could have been stronger a la aglio olio style. The restaurant was quite generous with the ingredients and portion.
Pan-seared Salmon (SGD$22.00) was served on a bed of mashed potato with salad on the side. Succulent and tasty, with the ever slight smokiness in that briny flavour, this was one of our favourites.
Next, Fish and Chips (SGD$16.00) was huge in portion - battered fish fillet deep-fried to a delicious golden brown, served with crispy fries, dips and vegetables on the side - the latter a refreshing touch, a well balanced fish and chips dish.
For drinks, we had the Melon Madness (SGD$16.00) - a frozen cocktail blend consisting of Midori Melon liquor, Creme de Cacao, orange juice and milk. Iced Latte (SGD$5.00) was described to be good as well.
Overall, dining experience at Times Square Restaurant was both hearty and satisfying, nothing too pretentious or fanciful, just a cosy, comfortable place serving rather good food for a good time.
