One Rochester

Through a friend, I got to know a new restaurant - One Rochester - to add to my list.

The restaurant provides bistro dining in a stylish colonial bungalow located 15 minutes by foot from Buona Vista MRT.

Couches and low coffee tables made up the ground floor of the bungalow while the majority of dining takes place outside - either under a pavilion or a tentage.

We ordered prawn pasta and banana pancake with vanilla ice cream. The pasta portion was just nice and they were not at all stingy with the fresh prawns. The banana pancake with the fresh fruit sauce was a good sweet and sour combination! Two thumbs up!

Food was served quite promptly but the waiters and waitresses could be better trained not to mix up orders and to be more attentive to the needs of the customers.

As a result, we got to taste one french toast (free of charge) from an order that was sent to the wrong table! To satisfy the insatiable dessert monster, we ordered a healthier dessert - yoghurt with roasted pistachios and honey. It was finger lickin' good!

The pricing is slightly on the high-end but I'll definitely be back if I ever feel like giving myself a treat away from the hustle and bustle of town!
