I had a chance to join a food tasting event organised by Mapwerkz at Fullhouse Signature, located at Clarke Quay. If you enjoy cafe-hopping, you should know that there was previously a Fullhouse Theme Cafe at Rendezvous Hotel but it closed down and this restaurant opened again at a new location in Clarke Quay, just opposite The Central.
Jj and I have visited the one at Rendezvous Hotel before and we really loved the ambience, with the Victorian dreamy vibes, little pigeons and cute comic characters who are named Thomas (dad), Tracy (mum), Tony (son) and Tiffani (daughter). This time round, they opened again at Singapore’s biggest nightspot but with similar concept and it is now called Fullhouse Signature.
This restaurant is rather big which makes it a good place for big gatherings like birthday parties and wedding celebrations. 🙂 I feel mothers would probably love this place to bits and pieces because it is just so clean and homely.
This is also definitely a place for a romantic night out. Having been together for almost 7 years (Woo~), JJ and I are constantly looking for new places where we can chill out and celebrate our anniversaries.
Look! We took so many pictures in just one restaurant. 🙂 Good way to kill time while we are waiting for our orders to be served. That way, we will forget about the waiting time.
The above is how the actual menu looks like. However, as it was a blogger’s event, we were treated to their recommended dishes. So if you are there, just try what you see over here in my blog and you wouldn’t go wrong. Especially the desserts!
First up is the Italian meatball.
This is the Crunchy Cheese Sticks. It is nicer than the previous one. There is melted cheese right inside. If you like things cheesy and fried, this is the side dish to go for.
Here comes the golden crabmeat ball. Rather fried so this is a bit heavy for me but guys will probably like it.
The final appetizer is the Cream of Forest Mushroom Soup. I like it in that it does not taste diluted. At the same time, the smell of mushroom is not too overpowering. Good mix there.
Next up, will be the main dishes. The first one is Fullhouse Ravioli. The Ravioli is a kind of traditional Italian pasta that contains sauce within the pasta, made in the form of a little cup.
It definitely looks very pretty but the pasta was a bit hard. Would be better if it was softer and more damp. Prefer the Scallop Aglio Spaghetti to this dish.
Ever since I came back from India, I have started to develop a liking for spicy food. This Aglio Spaghetti has a bit of spices to tantalize your taste buds, in a good way. Try it if you can accept a tinge of spiciness. Jj and I felt that this is quite nice and he ate a fair share of it. 🙂 It is priced at $22.
This is the Braised Lamb Shank. The meat is tender and I like the gravy.
The last main course we had was Grilled Chicken Chop with Raisin Black Pepper Sauce and Jj really loved this dish.
Looks good too right? I think they fried the skin before grilling it so the skin was a bit crispy. Guys, you can either order this or the Scallop Aglio Spaghetti when you visit Fullhouse Signature.
Of course, here comes my favorite part~~~ DESSERTS!
Do you know that “DESSERTS” when spelt backwards, is actually the word “STRESSED”? Eating desserts really helps to rid the stress accumulated at work, especially since my work is ever-so hectic.
This is the Banana Paradise. Fried bananas dipped in homemade Vanilla ice-cream. Yum yum! 🙂
But the best would be the Molten Chocolate Cake. It is so good that I feel like finishing everything. But of course, I can’t. We were meant to share the desserts together.
There is the chocolate crust on the surface and molten hot chocolate inside. Really sweet but I love it. 🙂
Not forgetting, the drinks! Fullhouse Signature is a great place to have a drink and just chill out. Even though it is located right at the heart of Clarke Quay, it is rather quiet and cosy place. So, I chose Hot Lavender Tea for the night whereas Jj had Cold Calmansi drink. He was so excited about the yellow jellies that explode in his mouth. Haha, so childish.
We were also introduced a drink called Snow White on Fire. You can find it on the Cocktail Menu. There is a little “performance” before you can enjoy this cocktail. Can you see the flames in the photo below?

What’s so good: The homely ambience
What’s not so good: It offers slightly less excitement than the previous outlet it has in Dhoby Ghaut. The car is gone and it is also smaller but fret not, there are still photo ops available.
