Any meat lover will agree that one of the best forms for meat to be served in is the roast. From roasted ducks to Sunday roasts, be it beef, lamb or poultry, hardly anyone will complain about a good, tasty roast. This love for quality roasts is pretty much how The Rotisserie has made a name for itself. I’ve visited them on two occasions and both times were because it was recommended by my family and friend.
This entry is about my third visit to their outlet in Suntec City (which apparently closed shortly after but they have two other outlets!). Visit their website via the link below (‘Details’ section) to find their other outlets. My wife and I stumbled upon this outlet while finding a place for lunch with friends. We decided to go with it since we’re a fan of the chicken, and I was hoping to add another notch to my recommended list of value meat joints.
The Quarter Roasted Chicken ($12.50) is our go-to dish here, though our sides will vary. While my wife often goes for their vegetables or salad, I tend to pile on the hot chips. The chicken is often roasted to perfection, with that tantalising brown, crispy skin that only proper roasts can produce. The flesh is always well prepared, offering diners tender and juicy meat (with none of that blood stained bones). My preference is dark meat so whenever given a choice, you’ll always find me digging into a serving of drumstick and thigh, usually with my hands.
As for the fries, they’re one of the best I can find in town. They’re always freshly baked, never too oily and delightfully consistent. Each time I pick one up, it’s soft yet slightly crunchy, with fluffy insides. The light layer of what I think is cayenne seasoning adds a dash of spice that produces a wholesome and satisfying feel. So good!
Our dining companions went with the Hamburger ($14.00) and unfortunately, they found the meat patty a little dry. One massive flaw I noticed with the burger was the vastly disproportionate meat:bun ratio. The bun almost dwarfed the patty, making the top half look like a heavyweight portobello mushroom with a bad case of melted cheese infection. Of course, I didn’t mention this in front of my companions but I’m sure their thoughts weren’t too far off, especially after taking one mouthful of meatless bun after another.
The ambience was pretty warm and approachable. Shortly after we took our seats, the place started filling up with mostly families having a convivial get-together lunch. Service was pretty good and that says quite a bit since there’s no service fee charged.
Should You Try It?
I definitely recommend the roasted chicken and I’ve also tried it at their China Square outlet and it’s just as good. And if you ask me about the sides, I would say go with their fries.
