We wanted some Italian food at Prego's but it had an incredulous waiting time of 30 to 40 minutes. Friends will know that the BF and I are not fans of queues and/or crowds, so we headed straight to Seah Street Deli instead, which was just across the road at Raffles Hotel.
It was fairly empty when we entered the retro New York Diner-styled restaurant. Perfect.
The BF ordered the Texas Burger ($22.50), a whopping 250g beef patty (medium done) with Hickory Bbq sauce, smoked bacon, sauteed peppers, sweet onions and melted cheese. This was hearty, robust and absolutely delish, the way real burgers should be.
I love eating breakfast food for dinner, so I got an Omelette ($14) with Swiss Cheese ($2.50) and Portobello Mushrooms ($5). This came served with baked beans and 2 pieces of toasted bread. Simple and classic, but otherwise unspectacular.
We also got the Mac and Cheese ($17.50) to share. Today's version was sadly lacking in the cheese sauce, so other than the golden brown hued sauce you see slathered on top, the insides were dried out. We struggled to finish this.
We got a side of the Sauteed Mushrooms ($7), shitake mushrooms that was fragrant and earthy. Absolutely yummy.
We also ordered the Root Beer Float ($10), a frothy concoction of fizzy root beer with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream on top, which the BF totally gushed over. I realised then that the BF had never had root beer float before in his entire life! Which totally surprised me. It's amazing that despite being together for more than 2 and a half years, I'm still finding out new stuff about him everyday. That, and the fact that he makes me laugh everyday.
