SIN: Lemon Tree Bistro

Yummy banana walnut gelato!

I'm so sorry I forgot to wish everyone MERRY CHRISTMAS! XD I'm finally done with the slides for the coming presentation with regard to my Final Year Project. Well, Lemon Tree Bistro, an eatery which I suppose is under the same management as the vegetarian Honzen Café, is located a few steps away from the latter, opposite of the National Library building. I skipped appetisers since it seemed that there weren't any unique items for me to try out.

Grilled Snapper in Pesto Sauce S$13.90
Taste: 8/10

One of the main courses ordered was the juicy and tender grilled snapper laden with aromatic pesto sauce which was full of garlic and basil goodness without being overpowering. It came with a bit of salad on the side, and I have to say the vegetables served were of acceptable freshness.

Lemon Tree's Pizza S$10.90
Taste: 8/10

The other main course was the not so thin pizza with ham slices, mushrooms pineapple cubes, bell peppers, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. While the toppings were given in a huge amount, the cheese didn't bind all of them together, so it got pretty messy as they'd fall apart. Still, it was delectable.

Homemade Premium Gelato (2 Scoops) S$5.50
Tiramisu - Taste: 8/10
Banana Walnut - Taste: 9/10
Peach and Mango Sorbet - Taste: 8/10
Italian Cookies and Cream - Taste: 7.5/10

Overall, the gelato was thick and creamy enough without making me sick of it. The best was the banana walnut flavour which was undeniably rich and fragrant. The tiramisu flavour was pretty interesting in the sense that it had a bit of coffee taste in it, but it was different from any other ice cream or gelato of the same flavour I ate before. The peach and mango sorbet was sweeter than it was sour, while the Italian cookies and cream was pretty average.

Cappuccino S$3.00
Taste: 7.5/10

The cappuccino served the other day was pretty aromatic and milky, but it came to the table lukewarm. Having said that, I enjoyed the frothiness.

Mint Blast S$3.00
Taste: 7.5/10

The soda drink infused with mint leaves was only slightly sweet, but it was a pretty refreshing one to end the meal.

Melon's Rating
Taste: 8/10
Ambience: 8/10
Service: 8/10
Overall: 8/10

There wasn't any welcome drink given. Ambience wise, I think Honzen Café is somewhat more relaxing. Anyway, the Filipino waiter I came across the other day was friendly.
