First Time Visit to Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove

[Media Visit + Giveaway]

There is Clarke Quay where tourists like to hang out at the various bars and restaurants and then there’s Boat Quay where yours truly loved to party when I was still in my teens, but I have no idea how the place is doing now since I do not venture much beyond my own neighborhood these days. And I had never been to Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove, not until our recent invite. I didn’t even know it existed and when I didn’t get much information from Streetdirectory on how to get there, and ended up having to ask our host for directions! 

In any case, Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove is really just in the east of Sentosa, near Sentosa Cove to be exact. The most economical way to get there would be to take public transport to Vivocity, walk over the boardwalk to Sentosa Island as there is free entry, take the free monorail to Beach Station and then transfer to bus number 3 which runs every 30mins. Take in the sights while you walk slowly, otherwise you can choose to go in direct by taxi and pay the admissions fees as required. Check here for more directional information.

Having a nice Blue Moon Burger under the shade, overlooking the yachts is simply relaxing!
Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove is basically two long rows of restaurants serving a wide range of cuisines ranging from French, Italian, Belgian, Chinese, Western, Greek, Thai and more. The pricing of these restaurants would be similar to what one have to pay in town, but with the fantastic view of the yachts berthed at One15 Marina Club while having a meal, really evokes the feeling of being overseas and is absolutely relaxing! 

The "B" Burger - Aged beef patty with caramelized onions, cheese and topped with garlic mayo. 

And Stacci can't wait to devour her kid's burger that came with a side of fries.
Look at the thickness of the patty. 
Profiteroles de “L’Entrecôte” - Vanilla bean ice-cream profiteroles with hot chocolate sauce.
Look at the goodies we had! Including sundaes and churros! Dessert heaven no less!
The first place we went to was &Made Burger Bistro L’Entrecôte Express at #01-03, a place to find gourmet burgers, truffle fries and delicious desserts such as sundaes, churros and profiteroles! I always had the thinking that a fulfilling meal should consists of rice so that I can feel full, but these burgers pack a punch and would really take a little effort to finish! They have flavors such as Tandoori Chicken, N.Y. Bacon and Lamb that we are no strangers to. I personally loved the Lamb, but do not attempt that if you do not like the smell of lamb! All the burger patties are thick and juicy! Note that all burgers are served ala-carte with add-ons like fries and onion rings. [Update: The restaurant had ceased operations w.e.f. Feb 2017]

Prawn and Green Mango Relish with Rice Crackers.
Green Papaya Salad, a great started to a Thai meal!
Deep Fried Prawn Spring Rolls, a favorite of the kiddos!
The first time we tasted Watermelon Fried Rice. Full of ingredients and yummy too!
The Thai-Style Grilled Pork Belly. Dip into the accompanying sauce and it will be awesome!
Stir-Fried Squid with Runny Salted Egg
Kang Ob Woon Sen - Crayfish with Vermicelli in Claypot.
Mango with Black Sticky Rice.
Next up, we tried some Thai food at Gin Khao Bistro at #01-12. The way I read the name sounds something like “very thick” in Hokkien. We had the Tom Yum Seafood which was really sweet and spicy, and would really whet up one’s appetite. Some notable dishes from the bistro would be their Stir-Fried Squid with Runny Salted Egg, a twist to the usual deep-fried salted egg squid dish. The squid was nice and chewy while the salted egg was simply delish! There’s also the Thai-Style Grilled Pork Belly with just that right thickness, and oozing with juiciness! Pair it with the sauce and it will be just nice, without the oiliness feeling. Some other interesting stuff would be their Special Watermelon Fried Rice, a twist to our usual pineapple fried rice, and the Thai Ice Coffee, naturally sweetened with Coconut Juice, a refreshing drink for coffee lovers indeed.
