When we read about coastal settlement in 8 days, we earmarked it to make sure to try it out one day since it was in the east, living in Tanah Merah and all. A few weeks ago, we tried to make a reservation on a Friday evening, and it being fully booked, it made us want to go all the more haha. So last week on my sisters birthday, we made earlier arrangements, and got a table of 7 for a Saturday night!

Coastal Settlement

Upon arrival, it had a really small carpark, so opt for the free valet parking, the one lane outside meant if more than 1 car needs valet, it holds up the whole street. But that’s not a big deal, just the Singaporean drivers honking impatiently behind us. The first impression was pretty good, with the old school decor (chairs and tables), gardens, vintage Volkswagen beetles all over.

Interior

Inside, the atmosphere hits you full on with a live singing acoustic duo and the vintage decor continues, with Vespas, retro furniture, and knick knacks strewn all over the place. I have to say I was impressed with the look and feel of the place, it was really nice!

Food!

The place was packed with people, so definitely get a reservation if you’re in a big group. We ordered a ton of food but only snapped a few pics of the highlights. (Pictured) The truffle fries wasn’t too gasoliney tasting and was very very addictive, though some of my family found it a bit too salty for their tastes. The salad was pretty good as well, but the real highlight was the Wagyu Beef and Mushroom Pizza, we ate 1 and half of that flavour cause it was so good! Tender pieces of beef, and a mixture of different mushrooms, brought together with sauce that made the pizza very tasty. That pizza is a definite must try!

And to end it all off, here’s a random picture of my lovely brother tasting the weird almost radioactive looking retro f&n that came with the kids meal. But Coastal Settlement is a great place to hang out and chill, the food prices mirror a place like P.S. Cafe, so its not a place you can go too often. Great food, great ambiance in a not-so-secret getaway in the east.

The Coastal Settlement is at:
200, Netheravon Road

I don’t really shop at Uniqlo except for underwear and winter essentials, but I was mucking about in Vivocity a week ago waiting for hubby Tan, and being a sucker for vintage and bright prints, I was instantly drawn to the new collaboration uniqlo have with Orla Kiely! I’ve always loved Orla Kiely’s prints, but always felt her stuff was a bit pricey, so a uniqlo collaboration is perfect for the pockets! I grabbed everything I liked and made a dash for the changing room:

I ended up with the red dress (pockets sucked me in!) and a the blue sleeveless top which I can’t wait to wear tucked into a skirt! There’s quite a crazy variety of prints in tops, scarves and blouses available, so do drop by Uniqlo today!
