It's been a while since we last went to Straits Quay and it's a nice place to go during weekends as there are mainly F&B outlets there.
There was a flea market with loads of knick knacks ranging from handmade jewelry, quirky clothes (angry bird beanies, anyone?) to hand crafted soap.
At the other side, there's a long, pleasant walkway lined with shady trees and edged by water where yachts berthed.
We had a quick bite at Delicious, Straits Quay. It's best to call ahead for reservations during the weekends as it's quite popular. There was a kid's birthday party in full blast that day so we had to wait to be seated.
One can never resist ordering a dessert from the array of sinful concoctions on display there and it is difficult to narrow down your selection to just one ... or maybe two, or three perhaps?
I love the decor at Delicious, mainly done up in white and gray hues with pops of blue with their trademark white birdcage clusters hanging from the ceiling.
Outdoor seating is also an option but we were told that it only starts from 8pm onwards. It's really nice and quiet outside, overlooking the quay with loads of open spaces for little kids to run around and basically go amok. There are more of the white bird cages outside used to house potted ferns.
Despite its chic ambiance (and often filled with lots of opportunities to people watch) , I find the food at Delicious to be so-so, it's nice but nothing that makes me really go wow. From top to bottom: Death by Chocolate, Four Cheese Pasta and a Berry Trifle with the biggest strawberry I've ever seen.
Service is a bit of a drag during peak times but staff are unfailingly polite. They made a mistake by charging me for a plate of carbonara which we didn't order so do keep an eye on the bill before you pay. Kids meals are free only on Mon - Fri with every 2 adults main courses ordered.
