Situated along Siloso Beach on Sentosa Island, Mambo Beach Club draws its inspiration from the classic 1950s beach bars in Miami, the USA. Facing the ocean front, it serves not only cocktails, which I didn't try, but also snacks and main courses.
Grilled Beef Salad S$18.00
As my intention was to try the range of food offered, I started with one of the salad bowls, comprising the usual selection of leaves, cherry tomatoes, olives and sirloin steak topped with Thai-inspired sweet and sour sauce. While the vegetables could be fresher, the red meat was pretty tender.
Traditional Beer Battered Fish and Chips S$18.00
The deep-fried breaded fish wasn't too oily, but it wasn't spectacular either. The accompanying fries weren't soggy, but certainly they could be crispier. The best thing on the plate was actually the vinaigrette for the salad, for it was tangy and thick enough for my liking.
Prawn Aglio Olio Pasta S$22.00
The spaghetti was a bit dry, lacking in olive oil. It came with croutons, which I felt were somewhat out of place. Besides that, it also needed more garlic to make it more aromatic. The shrimps were moderately fresh, but cooked well as they retained the springy texture.
Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream S$12.00
Sadly, the dinner ended on such a low note. I've got to say that the dessert was a little bit undercooked as a few of the crumbles were still sticky. There was an adequate amount of apple cubes underneath though.
The ambience wasn't bad, and neither was the appetiser that I ordered. However, the rest could certainly be improved. Pika's advice: Perhaps you may want to consider having the cocktails instead of having a full meal there.
