"Gourmandism is an act of judgement, by which we prefer things which have a pleasant taste to those which lack this quality." – Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin

The Queen and Mangosteen

My colleagues and I finally went to Queen and Mangosteen at Vivocity. He has been telling us that his friend is the chef there and has always wanted to go there together. Right after our meeting was adjourned, we headed down.

The restaurant is half air-conditioned and half al-fresco, with the lovely waterfront view of Sentosa. The interior consists of simple, raw wood surface and leather furnishings such as high tables, bench seating to give a British pub setting. I really like their fans and lights. With the gentle breeze blowing in, it makes the dining experience a cosy and comfortable one, perfect place to chill and catch up with your friends.

“The name The Queen & Mangosteen reflects the drinking and dining experience of predominantly British influences and rumour has it that the mangosteen was reputedly Queen Victoria’s favourite fruit, she allegedly offered a reward to anyone who could bring it to her!”

The food was really great and the portion was BIG! The Thai squids was similar to what my mum made – squids mixed in freshly-squeezed lime juice, chilli padi, onions and corianders. The lamb kofta tastes similar to mutton masala. The sandwich I had was a little dry, and comes with a big bowl of french fries which I couldn’t finish. The Fisherman’s Pie became really “gelad” after a few bites. Order the snapper if you want something lighter.

Thanks to Chef Patrick for the Thai Spicy Squid and Mussels on the house! Our total bill after 10% discount (using DBS credit card) came out to $329.44.
