Food Review: Lenas @ Bugis Junction

Decided that a nice lunch is way overdue for lazy Friday afternoon …. With some much needed sun out (after getting caught in a sudden downpour), decided that today is the day to satisfy my pasta craving …

Decided to check out Lenas’ lunch promotion which makes more economic sense as compared to the $6 to $8 foodcourt pasta at the level 3 foodcourt 😛 ….

Was too hungry to take pictures of the interior but love the cosy yet casual feel of the restaurant …. very european feel (and I won’t be surprised if most of the furnitures came from Ikea) …. Got the same corner seat as last saturday when I checked out the tea time dessert promotion ……

Back to the food ……

Here’s my salad & galic bread (Note: it’s free flow) ….

Coffee that isn’t very warm unfortunately ….

My main course – Spicy Aglio Olio with Smoked Duck …. Felt that too much chilli oil was used, diluting the taste slightly …. Shld’ve taken a cream-based or tomato based pasta instead …. Otherwise the smoked duck concept is interesting as most pastas tend to be either seafood based or meat based ……

Went back for 2nd serving of salad bar since it was free flow + to quease away some of the chilli oil ….

The small bowl on the left was actually mash potato (available at their salad bar as well) …. am disappointed to say that the mash was cold (and not warm as it is supposed to be) ….

Total damage = $14.01 ($11.80++ before service charge & GST)

Verdict: 3 out of 5 stars. Would’ve been a pretty expensive & mediocre lunch (in terms of food quality) if not for the free flow salad bar (that gives the necessary amount of greens one needs). Felt that they serve much superior desserts (tweeted about the pancake set that I checked out during their tea time promo last Sat) + their pizzas should be better too (Which I tried when they 1st opened in Oct 2009) …. By the way the pizzas are 1-for-1 from 2pm to 5pm ……
