January 2, 2017
Flame-Grilled Air Flown Sirloin Steak

I’ve always had a problem of seeking affordable AND delicious Christmas menus because, let’s face it, some places do mark up their prices a little more than usual. #firstworldproblems Can my Christmas wish of a place that is wallet-friendly yet tasty food come true? Santa must have heard me on this one (or perhaps Mrs Claus..) because in comes Collin’s!

New to Marina Square but definitely not a newbie to the food industry, Collin’s Grille Bento dishes out an affordable Christmas set from just $15.90++! That’s less than $20 with some change to spare! #jawdrop

Tuck into a heart-warming Mushroom Chestnut Soup with Parmesan Puff for starters. I love cheese ( fellow cheese lovers unite!) and catching whiffs of the parmesan had my inner cheese fanatic melting in happiness. I drowned my soft, light and yet crunchy puff pastry into the mushroom soup made with fresh portobello, white button and shimeiji mushrooms. Chunky pieces of chestnut enhanced the soup which was a surprise! Definitely shaking things up to the good ol’ mushroom soup with a touch of luxe.

For your main course, choose either the Grilled Chicken Steak with Collin’s Homemade Caramelised Onion Sauce ($15.90) or the Flame-Grilled Air Flown Sirloin Steak ($19.90).

Seasoned well and grilled to tenderness, the chicken fillet was tender and moist. A generous serving of homemade caramelised onion sauce on the side made me wished for a side of mashed potatoes JUST to complement the sauce!

Flame-grilled steak was done to a medium rare with a slice of torched cheese on the top for an extra touch. Can I have all my steaks with cheese from now on? To enjoy a little bit of luxury, add on a glass of Hardys Varietal Shiraz 2014 for only $6++! A fruity, slightly spicy glass of red, it was pleasant and smooth on the palate without any harshness. Quite a delectable treat when combined with the meats.

To me, I have always envisioned spending Christmas with loved ones beside a fireplace because it exudes the warm, feel-good vibes that is really what this season is about. Collin’s provides a homely, laid-back atmosphere, almost like heading to your best friend’s place for dinner. Providing quality food at affordable pricing, Collin’s is a perfect option for family and friends Christmas gathering.

What more can you ask for at Christmas? 🙂
