This was from a lunch a week back when I was at Dhoby Ghaut to collect a birthday present for the girlfriend. The Picturehouse Lounge is a very small eatery located at The Cathay, situated in fact near the fifth-floor washrooms. The Lounge has been having this one-for-one lunch promotion (12-2pm, main courses only) for quite some time now and I wanted to try it out of curiosity. Since the best friend had accompanied me to collect the present, that made the two of us, which is always good for one-for-ones.
Calamari Rings: 3/5
The rings were ordinary but the biggest problem was the portion. I saw that they reduced the price from $3.50 to $3 but then there were only six rings so it was still considerably expensive.
Black Pepper Chicken Chop: 3.75/5
The chicken chop far exceeded my expectations and turned out pretty tasty indeed. The black pepper gravy went really well with the tender chicken meat and the smooth mashed potato.
Pasta with Chicken
The best friend had this, and she said it was alright as well.
$6.50 for each of the main courses, which works out to $3.25 each
$3.00 for the calamari rings
$2.70 for a glass of soft drinks
* Prices subject to the usual 7% GST and 10% service charge.
