Enjoy The Merriment of Western-Asian Palates with Earle Swensen’s New Menu

Continuously striving to outdo themselves in providing scrumptious and healthier dining options, Earle Swensen’s is back again this June with new and improved dishes, ranging from appetite-inducing appetizers, hearty mains, to delectable desserts. In the new myriad of Western dishes, Earle Swensen’s infuses Asian flavours that make dining at Earle Swensen’s a best of both worlds.

I am a food lover hence when i received the invitation for a media food tasting, I was elated to be able to try out the new dishes, so that I can recommend them to my network.  Thanks Earle Swensen’s and Touch PR & Events for the kind invite!

I was informed that I can order anything I want from the menu and of course, I went for the new dishes.

Earle Swensen’s continues to deliver its complete dining experience to every patron with their signature Salad Buffet Bar (available a la carte at S$16.20), accessible with all main course orders at the restaurant.  The all-you-can-eat salad bar boasts an extensive range of fresh compound salads, crisp mixed greens and juicy fruits that diners can tuck into. The salad variety is often switched up based on different themes to keep Earle Swensen’s customers coming back for more. 

I had loads of fun mixing my own salad concoction with the wide variety and amount offered.  Basically I was spoilt for choices.  

After I went through Earle Swensen’s revamped menu, I am sure that it is bound to capture the hearts and provide patrons of all ages the perfect dish to savour.

The first dish which I chose was the Breaded Scallops with Wasabi Tar-Tar Sauce (S$10.90).

Generously coated with fine bread crumbs, succulent scallops are fried till perfection for that crispy exterior crunch. Douse each golden scallop into the oriental wasabi tar-tar dipping sauce, made from a legendary in-house recipe. I can’t keep my hands off this addictive appetizer. 

Next up, I wanted to try this main course, called Earle’s Surf & Turf. (S$40.90)

Undecided between meat or seafood? Get the best of both worlds with Earle’s Surf & Turf as you indulge in a mouth-watering grilled wagyu steak and succulent fresh lobster dish. Rich in dietary fibre and unsaturated fatty acids, this magnificent piece of steak is unmis-steak-ably delicious and well worth the splurge. Coupled with fresh ocean lobsters drizzled with refreshing honey mustard sauce, this smorgasbord show-stopper delights with every bite. 

If you prefer to go for a light appetiser, order the Smoked Salmon Avocado Tart (S$9.90).

Specially imported smoked salmon with the perfect blend of rich, creamy avocado, is generously filled in an exquisite tart shell pastry. The quaint tart is surrounded by lush arugula to provide an added crunch, packed with health benefits in every bite. This dish easily makes up a lighter meal option. 

I paired this with the strawberry Jubilee drink for a refreshing taste.

I love cod fish so when I saw Baked Hoisin Cod Fish (S$35.90) on the menu, I immediately chose this as my second main to try.

A harmonious pairing of Asian flavours with Western influences, this dish features a silky smooth catch of house special cod fish coated with homemade piquant hoisin bean sauce to accent lively and moreish flavours. Paired with fresh arugula, sautéed mushrooms and potatoes, this epicurean masterpiece will hit the spot, every time. 

After a salad, 2 appetizers and 2 main courses and one drink,  I was already very full but how can I leave Earle Swensen’s without trying out the desserts?

I ordered For the Love of Lychee (S$13.10) since it was new in the menu.

It didn’t fail me… This is a dessert that reconnects you with your inner child while you indulge in the refreshing creation of generous scoops of lychee gelato, juicy lychee fruits and sweet strawberry toppings.

Enjoying my dessert!

There were so many new dishes in the menu which I didn’t get to try.  Overall, it was a hearty dinner with the choices of food that I love.  I will be going back to Earl Swensen’s to try out the following:
