[Media Food Tasting] An Exciting New Menu At Swensen’s Awaits To Delight Your Senses

Great new readers!

Swensen’s launches an exciting new menu this July, serving unique breakfast options, an extensive array of delectable main courses, and sweet treats guaranteed to delight your senses. 

When I received the media food tasting invite from the awesome people in Touch PR & Events, I immediately rsvp so that I could try the food and update everyone here.  Thanks Swensen’s and Touch PR & Events for the kind invite!

As the Swensen’s in ION Orchard located at unit B1-31 doesn’t serve the salted egg lava rolls, I didn’t have a chance to test it out but here is a photo of it.  Just looking at the photo makes me want to go Swensen’s to eat this right now!

I tried the Chicken N Waffle ($13.90) as my first choice after looking at the new menu offerings.

This dish comprises of chunks of fried chicken stacked on a golden waffle, drizzled with butter lime dressing. It is also served with buttered potatoes, creamy mushrooms and cheesy sausages. 

Even though the chicken was fried, they didn’t taste oily at all.  Hence the waffle which was placed at the bottom didn’t become soggy even after I took some time to take some photos of the dish.  It was still crispy and went very well with the maple syrup.

I also tried the BBQ Chicken (S$15.20).  it is grilled chicken generously brushed with BBQ sauce infused with guava, served with buttery mashed potatoes and vegetable-of-the-day.  The guava balanced out the sweetness of the BBQ sauce such that one can finish the chicken without the sweet clogging taste.  The chicken thigh meat was tender so I could easily finish the whole plate.
Another hot favourite for me was the Teriyaki Salmon (S$17.90).  The Grilled salmon was topped with julienne ginger and leek and glazed with umami teriyaki sauce. At the side was mashed potatoes and vegetables-of-the-day.  The salmon was done perfection such that the meat flaked off nicely and it was soft to the bite.  The teriyaki sauce was not the usual super sweet type but instead it had different nuances of umami flavour which gave the salmon more character. 

And when you thought that a hawaiian pizza is too common, Swensen’s brings it to a higher level with its Hawaiian Special (S$15.90).  Chicken ham, green peppers, pineapples, mushrooms, onions and cheese on charcoal dough crust… what more can I ask for?

Swensen’s was super generous with the cheese.  Just by looking at the goofy cheese made me so happy as I am a cheese lover! 

A visit to Swensen’s is definitely not completed without checking out the sundaes.  On the new menu were new creations like Yummy Sticky Coco Yam Sundae (S$11.80) and Salty Eggy Creamy Sundae (S$11.80)
It was so hard to make a choice so I decided to try both!
Coconut yam ice cream layered with fragrant Thai sticky rice, red beans, coconut bits and fresh coconut milk is perfect for people who love coconut and yam and prefer a taste which is more familiar.

Salted egg ice cream sandwiched between layers of waffle cubes, topped with salted egg pieces and butterscotch was a very innovative creation and surprisingly the salted egg ice cream tasted amazing, with the light fragrance of salted egg without being overpowering.

Besides the above dishes, Swensen’s new menu also offers Seafood Arrabbiata Pasta ($16.20) made for the seafood aficionado.  I considered this dish as comfort food which will never go wrong.  The spicy tomato cream sauce might be too overwhelming for some so if you prefer something mild, you can ask the kitchen to go easy with the chilli.  Again, Swensen’s is generous with the ingredients like fresh blue mussels and succulent prawns, which makes this dish value for money.

Indulge in tummy rumbling additions to the Swensen’s menu such as Pulled Chicken Salad ($12.50) for a healthier option and not forgetting the crowd pleaser Meatballs in Tomato Sauce ($9.60)

The Swensen’s New Menu is available at all Swensen’s outlets island wide from 1st July 2016.
