THREE by Table Concepts (Seiro, Zakka, French Table)

Seletar Mall is conveniently just a few bus stops away from my residence, but sadly, I have only visited it twice.

Seletar Mall is not a huge mall to start with, but it has basically the essential stores, such as pharmacy, eateries, basic apparels shopping, and not to forget mentioning the cinema! It's like finally a cinema around the Sengkang/Punggol area, and this could be the advantage Seletar Mall can get over Compass Point Shopping Centre.

It has quite a number of eateries, but decided to head for THREE by Table Concepts, as it looks pretty promising in serving some decent food and I'm quite interested to know what kind of menu they could serve by combining three different cuisines (Japanese Casual Dining, Modern Thai, French Bistro) into one.

We were actually told that it was full when we went around 1 plus in the afternoon. But the waiting time is short, probably less than 10 minutes and would strongly add on the crew service is polite and friendly. They may seem to be a little short-handed, but still present themselves to you when you needed any form of assistance.

Not really combining all three cuisines into a food kind, but serving three separate cuisines in a menu. Somehow you may also put it as lessening your effort to run around three different places to try each.

They also have a set menu which is quite affordable as well as available during the weekdays and Saturdays.

Ordered an appetizer, Crispy Prawn Toast ($7.80) served with 3 pieces. It's a cuisine under Zakka (Modern Thai), where toast is served with fried prawn paste on it, and a Thai spicy sweet sauce to company.

It isn't a fantastic appetizer, but it is pretty oily at the bottom, and the spread of prawn paste is just a mere layer. Taste is alright, and if dipped with the spicy sweet sauce, it would be more enjoyable as the sweetness of the sauce engulfs your taste bud. Else, this dish is not really worth the price paid.

Chicken in Half ($13.80) is a French Bistro, where a country side roasted half chicken is served with roasted vegetables, such as carrots and broccoli, as well as french fries and mushroom cream sauce.

The find the cream sauce too creamy, and having too much of thick fries, the fries served here looks meager to me. But other than that, I find the aroma of the roasted chicken well-presented and chicken meat is tender enough. For the price, I think this is worth paying for, as they do not serve malnutrition chicken. Well, I would also say the chicken itself does make up for the creamy sauce and skinny fries.

Signature Duck Leg and Linguine ($23.80) is also under French Bistro. I had initially ordered Pork Burger, but changed my mind for this. I have to say I am quite disappointed to see my duck leg being mashed to flat, and presentation is a little poor where portion looks small to be placed on a big plate.

Linguine has a little spicy sauce and if you look carefully, you will see chopped chili skins. Duck leg although has been flattened, but skin is crispy and meat is quite satisfactory too. Overall, I favor more of the Signature Duck Leg than the Chicken in Half, in terms of the overall taste.

A modern Thai cuisine for our dessert, a Thai Mango Sticky Rice ($6.80). Typical warm sticky rice and half a mango, drizzled with coconut milk. What makes me like the dessert is the real sweet mango which even the color is fresh-yellow. Four bunches of sticky rice that is really warm and even without the coconut milk, the rice itself is not bland at all. I would seriously add this as my favorite place to have my mango sticky rice in future.

Idea of the restaurant is quite interesting, in which it cover the problem of a group having different cravings for food. Food is average, but there are some I saw can be quite appetizing, and wouldn't mind heading back to try the others. Dessert wise, the mango sticky rice is still going to be one of them!
