Filipino Food in Tanjong Pagar: Maxchowbee

*****Sad to say, Maxchowbee is now closed but in its place (same address) now stands Kainan Café*****

**updated!**

 

I was walking by Tanjong Pagar on a Sunday afternoon taking pictures when I saw this establishment named Maxchowbee!

 

The name is honestly like a combination of Max’s, Chowking, and Jollibee.

 

Here are some photos I took from outside.

 

Now here’s how it looks like inside

Now, just a quick one as per my guidelines for this category.

Food that is readily prepared is available: No

 

Day Visited for the first time: Wednesday

Time/Meal: Dinner

 

They are only open from Monday to Saturday from 5pm onwards.

 

Good for Corporate Lunch/Dinners: No

 

Good to eat with Foreign Friends: Maybe for the adventurous

 

This restaurant is very near Duxton St. where there are a number of bars which employ Filipinas. You can bring some friends if they don’t mind eating with this crowd.

 

Recommended for people who will try Philippine Cuisine for the first time: Maybe for the adventurous

Filipino Food in Marina Square: 7,107 Flavours

Update: Sadly, this place is no longer open for business. (CLOSED)

This was one of the first posts I have in this blog and I think its just due for an update!

7,107 Flavours restaurant in Marina Square was the first restaurant of its class in Singapore. To all those who searched for a high end Philippine Restaurant in Singapore, you will stop searching once you see this little corner in Marina Square.

That being said, it is far far far above those restaurants you’ll find in Lucky Plaza.

Location is perfect, ambiance is great, partnered with the usual Philippine kindness by the waiters and staff and you got yourself the perfect dining experience outside the Philippines.

Although I have always praised this specific restaurant, I believe that there is always room for improvement.

Here are some things they should focus on:

1. An updated website! Come on people, its 2009!

2. They should offer membership cards to us regular customers, I think a 5% discount wont hurt or maybe a free cake on the member’s birthday!

3. Reservations! I once dined there on a Friday night with my colleagues; I had a reservation for 6. Although I understand that weekends are very busy, the table given to us was just for 4 with 6 seats, I told the staff that it doesn’t take a genius to know that we cannot fit on the table so I asked them to get me a bigger place. They instantly complied with my request however they just connected a table with a different size to our original table for 4. Don’t get me wrong, this did not affect the food, but please understand that this is suppose to be the best Filipino restaurant in Singapore, the smallest detail counts.

Now, for my standardized summary:

Food that is readily prepared is available: No

Day Visited for the first time: Saturday
Time/Meal: Lunch

Day Visited for the second time: Friday
Time/Meal: Dinner

I eat here regularly so just take my word for it, its on the top of my Filipino restaurants list here in Singapore.

Good for Corporate Lunch/Dinners: Yes

Just be sure to make an early reservation.

Good to eat with Foreign Friends: Yes

Please see my answer above.

Recommended for people who will try Philippine Cuisine for the first time: Yes

Having 7,107 Flavours was one of the best things that happened here in Singapore. Now we can invite our colleagues to enjoy Filipino Cuisine in a decent restaurant.

Although there are always room for improvements (as stated above), nothings perfect. At the end of the day, good service, good food and great ambiance are the only things that matter, the acoustic band is definitely a bonus.
