Bug decided to take me to my favourite place in Singapore (Arab Street) since I was in PMS mode. I wanted to have fried western food so Bug suggested we go for a good ol’ English meal. So we decided to have a go at The Mad Sailors.

The Mad Sailors is located right smack in the middle of Haji Lane. The cool contemporary cafe is decorated with padded sofa benches, wooden tables and floorboards, books, posters and dim warm lighting which makes you feel so welcomed and at home. We were greeted by a sweet lady who I think really loves what she’s doing. She was all smiles and warm which gave her customer service a plus. The cafe was almost full downstairs but we were too lazy to go up to the 2nd floor which we were told by the way, was more cool for the hot weather and there were also more seats. We decided to get a small little corner seat by the window. We truly enjoyed the ambience.
Our food took awhile to arrive, which we didn’t mind at all. We were so entertained with the atmosphere in the cafe, people watching and we had our kiwi-lime and mint drink that came in this cute green bottle.
I wished I had brought the green bottle home. Imported directly from the United Kingdom! Kiwi, Lime & Mint at $6.50
Beautiful Golden Fish & Chips $20.00
So it was Haddock Fish & Chips in housemade batter served with fresh slaw for us. This is sooo good! The best Fish and Chips we’ve set our tastebuds on! I promise you! The fish was fresh, and although the serving doesn’t look that huge a portion, the fish was really meaty! And yummy!
Amazingly wicked Fried Mars Bars with Ice Cream $14.00
This one up here is definitely a sugar rush goodness. Not for the faint hearted. You’ve got to be all crazy for sweet sugarly desserts to go for this. It’s simply delish! Cool on the outside, battered warm and caramelized mars bars on the inside. I couldn’t finish this on my own no matter how much I love desserts. The serving was huge! We love this. Really packing on the calorie.
Yummy – Yums Yums!!!
It was one of the best food adventure we had this year… Well, we are still in the month of January. We love the atmosphere in the cafe, the food was great, pricing goes well with the food, service was wonderful! Yes, we will return again for sure! Gosh, I miss the haddock fish and chips already!
