Indulgz Bistro: Where Senzes R Quite Satizfied

After two advertorials done by a famous blogger, we were dying to try out the highly rated food at Indulgz Bistro. But since they were advertorials (meaning the restaurant treated the blogger to their food), it COULD be a biased view. Therefore, we decided to come take a look ourselves.

Indulgz Bistro
Surprisingly, the restaurant turned out to be much smaller than what we initially expected. However, the beautifully decorated interior gave us both a very warm and fuzzy feel.

The ambience and music here totally sets the right mood in for a romantic dinner for two, or a peaceful get-together with your friends.

Tomato and Fresh Basil Soup

Tomato and Fresh Basil Soup,   S$5++,   

This smooth and sour Tomato Soup sure served as a great kick starter, awakening your taste buds for more food ahead.

Beef Bolognaise Melted Cheese Fries

Beef Bolognaise Melted Cheese Fries,   S$8.80++,   

Both of us got hooked instantly on our very first mouthful. Beefy homemade Bolognaise matched flawlessly with the pleasingly warm Melted Cheese. The Thick Cut Fries, was soft and fluffy, but never soggy. Oh! How so sinfully delicious!

Prawn and Crabmeat Pasta in Lobster Bisque Sauce

Prawn and Crabmeat Pasta in Lobster Bisque Sauce,   S$19.90++,   

Nice as it sounded, yet disappointingly, it tasted horrid to the max. The Linguini was dry and hard; thse Lobster Bisque Sauce was as tasteless thickened tap water; and the Prawn and Crabmeat were equally tasteless as well (or perhaps they're too small to be even seasoned/marinated).

Baked Honey Garlic Chicken

Baked Honey Garlic Chicken,   S$19++,   

A decent main course we would say. It was a whole piece of chicken leg, and the thoughtful part was that, the bone was removed. The meat was tenderly baked, just that it wasn't distinguishly Honey Garlic Chicken. Sides like mashed potatoes and boiled carrot sticks were of the norm.

VERDICT
Overall presentation was nifty and attractive, but the food was nothing to shout about, really. And for that kind of average food standard, the menu was considerably overpriced. Anyhow, Indulgz Bistro is still worth a visit if you wish to impress a date. "Ho kua, bo ho jia" - (In hokkien, "Nice to look at, not nice to eat".)

aha i so agree with u! I went there with 5 other friends and we all tot the food items were so-so in taste. The pastas were disappointingly bland and the serving portions for appetizers were pretty miserable. Prices there are way over-priced. We ended up spending $40 over per person which i felt was ridiculous as this wasnt even a fine dining restaurant.

finally a blogger with an unbiased view of indlugz! seriously its tooo over-rated! and totally over-priced! i went there with my bf and the bill came up to a whooping 90bucks! The lobster bisque soup doesnt taste fresh at all and it was sooo "fishy" HAH and anyway the fried cheese was worst. you were lucky enough for not ordering that! i'm really pissed off with indulgz for their steep prices and their lousy food.
