Halloween at Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove

[Media Invite]

I brought the kiddos down to Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove recently as the restaurants rolled out a series of Halloween-inspired menus for the month of October. Nothing spooky or sinister though, but everything sweet and nice!

Joe & The Juice

First we popped by Joe & The Juice for some great-tasting concoctions such as 'Pick Me Up' - (Apple, Raspberry and Banana) which started our evening with on a sweet note. That was followed by 'Young Blood' which is not exactly for people who dislike celery, because it is one of the ingredients, alongside lemon and apple.

The juices are definitely yummy and fresh and the only way to get them fresher would be to pluck the fruits straight from the trees and eat them direct! Oh and in case you do not know, their Turkey Sandwiches are da bomb too! Toasted to perfection with mozzarella cheese and tomatoes. Makes a great snack which light-eaters can substitute for lunch!

Gin Khao Bistro

And for the real meal, we popped by over Gin Khao Bistro for some authentic thai food without needing to leave on a jet plane. They are currently have a special 5-course dinner promotion consisting of the following -

Pla Muek Yang Nahm JImm (Scorched fresh squid served with Thai green chilli dip)
Kor Moo Yang (Flame grilled tender pork neck served with sticky rice and Thai dip)
Tom Kha Koong (Succulent fresh prawn braised in chicken and coconut broth served in coconut husk) and Truffle Mun Pla (Pan seared truffle infused Thai fish cake)
Kanom Pheuak (Yam paste with coconut sauce)
I really wonder if it's squids or octopuses because the pieces were really big and succulent! Thai fish cake was more of a "meat-ball" consistency that breaks up easily instead of the slightly chewy texture one would expect of fishballs. Soup was awesome, so full of flavors and had the coconut fragrance that I finished the last drop! Pork neck looked sinful, but wait till you plonk them into your mouth and taste it for yourself. Forget about counting anything I tell you. I am no fan of warm desserts really, but I can tell you that the yam paste tasted almost identical to our Cantonese version. 


This is the first time we stepped into Museo and I must say that I am impressed with the overall ambiance. It is truly a place where I would imagine chatting with good friends over a pot of tea. Very classy indeed. Perhaps the budding artist in you may want to try their Art Jamming sessions too and let your imagination run wild, through the paintbrushes!

‘Vampire’s Libation' (Hibiscus Tea)

‘Medusa’s Supper’ (Blueberry Meringue with Vanilla Ice Cream Raspberry Coulis and Popping Candy)

But we were really there to try out their Halloween creations of ‘Vampire’s Libation’ (Hibiscus Tea), which for some strange reason I kept reading as Vampire's Ligation! The glass came 2 eyeballs and the drink had a beautiful glittery red hue once you pour it in. A refreshing drink with the dash of lime added. ‘Medusa’s Supper’ (Blueberry Meringue with Vanilla Ice Cream Raspberry Coulis and Popping Candy) looked eerily good with the extra appendage added. Yummy! 

Greenwood Fish Market

Lastly we popped by Greenwood Fish Market for some light snacks and their super fresh oysters! No matter how filled our stomachs were, they will still be room for some great-tasting fresh oysters. Even Steffi gulped down 3 pieces on her own!

Spend a sweet Halloween on 30th Oct at Quayside Isle @ Sentosa Cove, as the kiddos goes trick-or-treating at participating restaurants! Remember to check out for more information!
