We went there on a weekday and was disappointed to know that the new weekday set lunch was only available the next day.
"Oh, what about the old set lunch then?"
"That's not available today as well."
The board outside the restaurant didn't seem to indicate so.
Nonetheless, we went ahead to order.
I had the Truffle Beef Burger and The Husband ordered the Arbite Breakfast.
The burger was a disappointment. I could taste some truffle spread onto the sesame bun but the bun was really too dry. The beef patty was chewy and not well seasoned too. The wedges that came with it was okay - crispy but very dry. Best taken with lots of ketchup.
I looked over at The Husband and he didn't look like he was enjoying his meal too. He avoided the scrambled eggs as it was too creamy and under seasoned.
I was too disappointed to order the supposedly famous chocolate cake..
The drinks were nice though. My ice lemon tea was home made and not too sweet.. The Husband's vanilla milk shake was good - like drinking vanilla ice-cream, as a good milkshake should be.
Nonetheless, for a lunch of around $25 per person, Arbite didn't impress.
I'd be hard for me to return there again for lunch.. not when there are so many other better options at Serangoon Gardens.
