PappaSan is a restaurant inside the newly opened Dorsett Hotel near Outram MRT. It seems to be the house restaurant for guests staying at the hotel, serving “all-day dining” ranging from breakfast, lunch, dinner till late night tapas.
Menu comprises of Asian food, Western food and tapas (from TapaSan Spanish Tapas Bar).
We wanted to order Lobster Crispy Noodle ($38) but the staff got it wrong and gave us Lobster Mee Sua instead. Lobster was quite fresh and of reasonable size; the mee sua absorbed the flavoursome stock, although not quite filling.
On our first visit, we had wanted to order their Chicken Rice but we missed by a whisker as they just sold the last set to another guest…So we ordered some Tapas instead.
From left to right: Chicken Wings, Beef Tenderloin Skewers, Crispy Fried Squid Rings ($8-$10 each). Chicken wings and squid both had a nice crispy outer layer but the beef was kinda disappointing as it was a bit tough.
We returned for a second visit so that we could get our hands on the Chicken Rice ($16.50) Also ordered another Asian dish – Wok Fried Mee Goreng ($13) for our meal as we generally felt that their Asian dishes were better than Western ones.
It was reported on Straits Times that the chef used to be executive sous chef at Mandarin Orchard, so we were eager to try the Chicken Rice. Sad to say I was a bit disappointed as the chicken meat was slightly tough although the most important condiment – chilli sauce was quite ok. I would humbly share my personal opinion that it was not exactly close to the famous Chatterbox ones…
The Wok Fried Mee Goreng was pretty acceptable although we could probably get similar ones with less generous ingredients at the nearby tze char stalls too…
Drinks wise they have Stellar and Hoegaarden on tap and other bottled beers.
This is quite a versatile hotel restaurant/bar serving a variety of Asian/Western dishes all under 1 roof.
