Premium (atas) version, more upmarket and an all-you-can-eat buffet salad bar were the three things that the branch manager told me when I asked him the distinction between Earle Swensen’s and Swensen’s.
Earle Swensen’s has come out with a new and improved menu this June holiday to wow diners with grilled entrees specially prepared in San Francisco tradition and also appetite whetting East-meets-West dining options.
For a refreshingly healthy treat, the all-you-can-eat buffet salad bar is often switched up with different themes to surprise diners. Diners can expect to find a delightful mix of fresh compound salads with Earle Swensen’s homemade dressings, crisp mixed greens, cold noodles and fresh fruits.
The all-you-can-eat buffet salad bar is available for free with any main course orders or at $16.20 for a la carte order.
Creamy Fish Chowder Breadbowl |$11.90
We order this as an appetizer but I think if you finish the entire breadbowl, this can be a main course as well as the rye breadbowl was filled with a healthy portions of tender salmon fillet, dory chunks and vegetables in a creamy tomato soup. The rye bread itself was crisp and crusty on the outside and fluffy on the inside, perfect and just the way I like it!
Earle’s Poultry Combo | $28.90
This hearty charbroiled main is really well worth the price for all meat lovers as the portions were generous and the cheese-filled chicken sausage, smoked duck, chicken thigh and chicken breast were tender and juicy to savour.
Earle’s Surf & Turf | $40.90
Calling all seafood and meat lovers! This is one of my favourite dishes of the evening and I cleared off the entire plate easily. The grilled wagyu steak was so juicy and flavourful as compared to the Ribeye steak although I also ordered a medium well steak here. The fresh lobsters were succulent and well complemented by the tangy honey mustard sauce drizzled over it.
Charboiled Ribeye Steak (250g) |$37.90
Frankly speaking, of all the dishes I had ordered that day, I thought that the execution of this dish was a disappointment. It could be because I ordered a medium well steak and the steak was rather thick, nonetheless, my Australian grain-fed premium steak turned out to be rather dry and tough.
Baked Hoisin Cod Fish | $35.90
This is another highly recommended dish which strikes the perfect balance in fusing European and Asian flavours. The dish features a silky smooth and delicate catch of cod-fish drenched in a homemade sweet hoisin bean sauce and is paired with fresh arugula, sautéed mushrooms and potatoes, creating a dish that not only nourish the body but is a delightful treat to feast upon.
Millefeuille with Seasonal Fruits & Gelato | $11.70
Enjoy a classic French pastry and gourmet dessert with 4 gelato flavours to complete your dining experience. The crispy puff pastry and medley of seasonal fruits offer a crunchy bite to the decadent gelato flavours of your choice. I was sad that my dessert toppled when I was shifting it around to take a good shot. It was actually served standing up tall.
For the Love of Lychee | $13.10
For the Love of Lychee, how could I miss the opportunity to order this when I loved to eat lychees so much? This sweet treat is a pure indulgence with generous scoops of lychee gelato, juicy lychees and sweet strawberry toppings.
All in all, with the Earle Swensen’s revamped menu, everyone is bound to find a perfect dish to savour!
