Halal in Singapore - Royz Et Vous at Chai Chee (Viva Business Park near Bedok)

Halal dinner in Singapore - Royz Et Vous at Chai Chee 

Okaaaaay.. back in Singapore for a super short while, finally can dump the kids with mama and sneak a dinner date with le husband. Howver, as it was Saturday night aaaaaand nearing around 6.30pm.. we had to cancel our plans for an Arab Street dinner cos we wouldn't want to be waiting in line for a table. 

Royz Et Vous was an option cos it was near, but I don't want to risk anything, so I called them up to ask if they still have a table. The waiter said "all reservations are online" to which I replied.. umm.. I'm reaching in 15 minutes. So, he said ok, I will hold a table for you. Phew.. thanks man.. you made our date possible :)

Viva Business Park, first time going there, went to Decathlon afterwards (but that's so out of point) who can resist? such a big place!

I like the fact that Royz Et Vous is just opposite the fountain.. makes for a beautiful sight nearing sunset. Inside, the restaurant is tastefully decorated in a dark, rich hue.. so romantic haha

Le husband couldn't resist looking at their coffee and ordered one recommended by the waiter, (don't ask me what he ordered cos I can't drink cofee, but he said it was the best coffee so far that he had in Singapore) I ordered hot chocolate with mint just because.. you guessed it.. chai latte was not in the menu :p I adore the light blue cup and saucer and I love the hot chocolate, not too rich, not too sweet and the mint was quite refreshing.

Hot chocolate with mint (back) and coffee (front) 

The menu was quite simple, there's soup of the day for appetizers, fries, nachos, wings..a few selection of salads (not on a diet at the moment) 5 varieties of pasta and for the mains we have chicken, salmon, duck, one type of burger, rack of lamb, striploin and ribs.That's it.  Dessert selection was quite disappointing when we were there.

So, we ordered:

Halal Restaurant in Singapore - Royz Et Vous - Mushroom soup and fried mushrooms (just because)

The mushroom soup was delish. Creamy and not too thick. Serving is enough for sharing. The fried mushroom, is because I was missing swensen's haha.. their version is a huge serving, big mushrooms, crispy batter but nothing special about the batter.. hey.. there's nothing wrong with it either :) I finished it.. though I think maybe it is nicer to pair with lime chili mayo (tekak melayu- kalau boleh semua nak ada sambal :P ) 

Signature Prawn and Crayfish @Royz Et Vous; Singapore

I ordered Signature Prawn and Crayfish Pasta (cos again I was missing Swensen's :p hey.. Swensen's in Malaysia just isn't the same as the Swensen's in Singapore okaaayyyy.. and we grew up with Swensen's before all the hipster halal cafes started) didn't read quite carefully though that it actually came with a cream sauce. This dish was ok, creamy with a hint of chili but I really don't favor my prawns being cooked this way.. you know the way that it is dipped for a short while only in hot water? I don't like the taste of prawns like that)

Brazen Beef @RoyzEtVous Singapore

Husband wanted to order the ribs, but was advised by the waiter it might be too big for individual consumption (ribs is 450gm! only for sharing people!) so he ordered the striploin instead. It was tender and juicy, but there is no sauce accompanying it. Still used to eating steak with an accompanied sauce haha.. fries and salad was so-so.. 

So.. verdict? macam swensen's lah jugak sikit2 , cuma upscale presentation and interior.. with of course additional higher quality mains on the menu. But I really like the chocolate mint. :P Boleh datang lagi? yeah maybe.. support orang Islam k?
