South Coast

South Coast

Forenote: C.Y., my guest blogger, dined here as a guest of South Coast.

South Coast is another one of the establishments that opened in the fantastic Marina Bay Sands Waterfront.  You wouldn’t be able to see its sign board, because they don’t have one.  But one way to identify this place is, its directly in front of Louis Vuitton (The one outside).

South Coast is an Australian bistro that spots a pastel color palette and a casual beach bar, coupled along with the breeze blowing in from the Marina Bay, you would feel like you’ve been transported to a beachside bistro in Surfer’s Paradise.

I started off with an Affotini, which is a Martini made from their own blend of coffee, Amaretto, butterscotch liqueur, vodka and a ball of vanilla ice cream.  Its sweet, with a tinge of bitterness from the coffee.  It doesn’t offer that much of a kick, but its definitely worth the try.  Mixing in the vanilla ice cream will make it sweeter and smoother to drink.

I was served a couple of items in tasting portions to try (I had dinner at Bazin prior to this) and a few of them was rather interesting.

The Kangaroo and Pork Pot Pie was one of the most interesting dishes of the night.  This was my very first time putting Kangaroo in my mouth.  I was expecting something strong, but then, the flavors was subtle.  The meat looked dry and flaky, but it was rather moist.  The crust of the pie was a bit too thick though.  Don’t expect peas or corn or any vegetables inside this pie because there isn’t any.

I like the Pepper Berry rubbed Lamb ribs, it was well seasoned with pepper berry, but it didn’t gave the spicy kick, which was good.  The gamey taste of the lamb wasn’t strong, as a matter of fact, it was rather enjoyable.  The tzatziki, commonly a Greek food, is a good alternative to the traditional mint jelly.  Though it offers a completely different feel from the normal mint jelly, it complimented the ribs well.

The Parmesan and Basil Meatballs didn’t offer much excitement, though I could say that the meatballs are quite tender and crumbly.  It was juicy and very well seasoned too.

The Slow Roasted Ox cheeks is something that you should try.  The really really tender ox cheeks coupled with a red wine reduction sauce was very good.  The sour dough bread, which are freshly made everyday, was soft as well.  To enjoy, dip bread in sauce and munch away.

The last dish was  Salt and Pepper Calamari. There wasn’t a “WOW!” factor to it because its just a very simple Calamari.  The batter was rather unique though.  It retains the crunch without being too hard,  it felt like tempura batter, but harder and more consistent.

To end of the night, I had another drink.  This time, I went for a Pineapple and Lemongrass Mojito.  This tropical variation of the Cuban Mojito tasted refreshing.  The fragrance of the lemon grass and pineapple, felt very much like a drink I would find in Thailand.  This is something I would recommend.

South Coast is a very good alternative to the normal Harry’s bar.  The place is nice and the staff are very friendly.  You’ll find that even on weekdays, they are packed with guests.  Other than bar grubs and alcohol, they also serve breakfast that uses “Freedom Range Eggs”, a brunch menu (which I would love to try) and also a selection of pizzas like Wagyu, Pepperoni, Prosciutto Pizza.

South Coast is opened 9am to 1am daily

They are located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Bay Level, L1-85.

  1. Wow!! Since when do tele skiers have to justify their choice to small minded homsohpbeo. I enjoy many types of skiing because its fun not because other people think its cool or not.

  2. Sick photo my friend!I knew immediately when I saw this on PixyBlog’s home page that this photo was yours. I love the detail in the sky, the stormy blue color as well as the feeling of movement. Beautifully captured.Also, great find. I mean come on, a place like this with a sky like that. What an amazing opportunity.As always, clever use of HDR. The exposure control remains at its upmost, of course what else would I expect.Great post, and congrats on your success on the Hot List, you deserve the recognition!

  3. I’ll stick with my trusty Nook, which I greatly like.The Fire sounds nice, but I don’t like to buy when a product first comes out. Let them work the bugs out, then I’ll think about it.But to those who have the latest and greatest technology, enjoy it!

  6. I went and saw the preview of this movie on November 15 and thought that this was a prime example of pixar’s movie making style. Fun characters and constant laughter from the antics of Rhino the hamster keeps everyone entertained through the whole movie.Out of five stars this movie has four on my rating. The story is fresh but the whole plot of the movie doesn’t really have enough to really suck an older audience into the film. Yet it isn’t lacking enough to merit not seeing the movie with the family.
