Shop/Food Review

Mr Good Says:

Many years back, I was disappointed by Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's breakfast and have not visited them for food since then. Recently, I decided to give their casual dining bistro (Beanstro) another shot since they were holding a media tasting. And I am glad I did!

 
Water Fountain Whirlpool View from Beanstro

Beanstro is currently the only full-service restaurant by Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Situated within the classy The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Beanstro has both indoor and outdoor seating with a beautiful water fountain whirlpool and canal view. The elegant restaurant serves western dishes like Eggs on Croissant, Steak Sandwich, Pasta and Roasted Chicken along with Desserts, Cakes and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's signature drinks until 2am on weekends. Then as I flipped through the menu, I was quite happy to note the plentiful menu choices and wallet friendly prices, a rare find within the upmarket and touristy Marina Bay Sands! So far so good.

Gambas Al Ajillo

But remembering my previous experience with Coffee Bean's breakfast, I still kept my expectations at bay. But as each dish was served, my expectation just kept going up. Presentation and flavours were consistently on point and I was also happy with the portions provided. Among those I have tried, I was most impressed with the Gambas Al Ajillo (Spanish grilled tiger prawns in olive oil, chilli and garlic), crispy Soft shell crab salad and succulent half chicken.

Cakes and desserts here are very pretty and reasonably priced for the huge portions (great for sharing). I also like that they are not too cloyingly sweet. But somehow they still did not hit the right notes for me and is mediocre in my books. So while I highly recommend you to visit Beanstro for the food, I think desserts are optional.
