Chelsea Market Cafe : Serendra

I had lunch in Chelsea Market and Cafe with friends one humid Saturday afternoon... And we dine in alfresco... Hoo hotty...

Chelsea is a modern American restaurant in Serendra that has an open kitchen which looks like more of a deli resto. I haven't noticed much of their interiors since we are seated outside, but the place is bright and inviting. It offers casual with a touch of elegance dining. Menu is pretty simple, extensive and straightforward. Service is great and the food is for sharing.

Anwyay for the food...

Before our actual order, we were welcomed by the sliced focaccia breads with whole bulb of garlic. I was the only one who touched the garlic - however it was almost tasteless. Of course we did ask for olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette to add some dipping flavors. Freebies is always a plus plus :D
From their cheese cabinet we ordered for Jalapeno Cheddar and Emmenthal Cheese Fondue (P395) . It is served with crispy tortillas, bread, potatoes and market vegetables.

Here's a closer look of our cheese fondue. Oh the potato wedges is not part of their fondue serving.

Roasted chicken and cripy bacon salad (P350) is served with grandma's Caesar Dressing, Toasted almonds, Baby Romaine. Mixed greens are crispy and fresh and dressing is tasty.

Slow Cooked Norwegian Salmon (P350). It is served with blanched asparagus spears, salsa verde, mashed potato and toasted pine nuts. The steamed fish looked a little bland but it was salmony yummy.

Grandma's Sausage and Meatball Stew(325) with rigatoni pasta,barolo wine tomato Ragu, and Parmesan.
For me the pasta is just ok. Well... I'm not really a big fan of pasta.
But the meatball was huge,see... (ok wrong angle..hehe!)

Overall, Chelsea is good provider of comfort food. It is a good place to mingle with family or friends but since it is almost always full so you might want to call them for reservation before actually going there. And yeah they do serve variety of desserts and cocktails...
