The Royal Mail

This isn’t my first trip to the royal mail but the last round was to the restaurant. This round, we went upclose and personal with the bar side! Best part is they are introducing new specialty cocktail and British-inspired tapas to its menu!

Apart from the food, we were well-entertained by the interactive duet. In fact, they tried to drag couple of us to sing together with them.

This pic just scream Bliss!

Enjoying one of the their two signature drinks: Timeless English & old fashioned spice. J’s favorite was the latter as he has quite a few glass of it before i convinced him to try something else.

See! The result of having too much Old fashioned Spice.. now he has to share his cocktail with me!

This boy has always been there with me for all my events be it rain or shine! So i just had to reward him for his efforts with the all time favorite forehead kiss when he was super engross with his cocktail drink!  *Territory marked* Heh Heh Heh

My personal favorite was this Cubed Beek Steak accompanied by spicy crab tomato and Bearnanise sauces. Totally irresistible! You would never just stop at one serving after you tried the first!

The Bamboo Clam with cubed squid and Ah Char sauce was also great ! It went well with the cocktails we had that night.

Sweet Potato Chips served with Onion and Shallot Salsa. It definitely look as crispy as it tastes. without the sauce, the chips were already tantalizing. Dip it in, the enjoyment just increases manifold!

Me, on the other hand, prefer sweeter drinks. I gave almost all cocktails a try!!!

I can never drink with an empty stomach no matter how much or little the alcohol content is so I ordered my favorite Fish & Chips!

The fish was so fresh. It was crispy on the outside but juicy on the inside.

Pizzas are really good for group gathering!

The Royal Mail

The Royal Mail Restaurant & Bar is housed within the culturally rich Ascott Raffles Place and serves modern interpretations of Classic British Cuisine where Roasts and Prime Rib take centre stage.

Drawing inspiration from the cuisine of Singapore’s colonial masters Group Executive Chef Micail Chepi and his team have introducted new starters, mains, roast, sides and desserts which are an impeccable combination of classics with a modern twist.

Highlights of the cuisine includes: Kurobuta Pork Chop with Apple Sauce, Lamb Fore Shank, Roasted Deboned Fish and Chestnuts & Grapes.


We often have the preception that fine dining is expensive and small in portion. To be honest, fine dining can be affordable. The price can be slightly more expensive than normal restaurants because the ingredients used are often the top-notch ingredients.

The Royal Mail has now come up with set lunch menu that brought fine dining to a whole new level!

3 Course Set Lunch at $38
2 Course Set Lunch at $35

Starters, Main Courses, Desserts.

Ala Cart is also available.

I gave almost every dish a try.

Sous Vide Half Main Lobster – with Japanese pumpkin, crispy jamon lberico de bellota, saffron becurre blanc and port jus.

Sauteed Chestnut & Grapes

Duck Fat Baby Potato, Casserole of Mushrooms and more. There was also a Truffle side – Truffle Mashed Potato (which isn’t in any of the picture). The mashed potato was super good!!

For the main courses, my favourite was the Deboned Fish of The Day and Lobster Linguine.

The fish was so good that we had a second helping that night. Roashed whole fish with grilled lemon, garlic confit and scallion. A 4 out of 5 star dish.

It was literally roasted to perfection. Yummy. The serving of this course is quite huge whereby it can feed at least 3 – 4 pax.

Kurobuta Pork Chop – whose meat was extremely tender. It was accompanied with caramelised apple and apple jus, NOT POTATOES. Pork lovers gave it a 2 thumbs up that night.

Roast Prime Rib: The classic cut (280g). Served with sauteed brussels sprouts and molten blue cheese, pine nuts, roast whole garlic, yorkshire pudding and veal jus.

Now, meet the star of the night! It was lobster linguine with garlic, semi-dried tomatoes, chilli oil, lobster and squid ink espuma. I don’t really like to order squid ink pasta outside because some squid ink would stain the teeth. However, the squid ink espuma they use in The Royal Mail doesn’t!

It was so good that when it came, every one at my area took a scoop of it, leaving me with 3 mouthfuls only. Of course, I ordered a second serving! HEH. The pasta is silky smooth and the lobster was fresh and chewy.

I had so much food that night that I almost wanted to skip the desserts but I was told that Eton Mess was really good and it is a must try. So I tried!

I like the combination of strawberries, hazel nut crunch and Meringue. The mixture of devon cream and salted caramel balanced out the sweetness of the caramel.

Second pick for desserts would be the Chocolate Fondant – molten centre chocolate cake served with tahitian vanilla ice cream and freeze dried raspberry chocolate crumble.

We had so much fun gathering and trying out all the different dishes. Guys, you do not have to worry about spending too much on a fine dining date with this set lunch menu. It is going to keep your pocket safe!

Prices are subject to 10% service charge and GST.
