Vanda Terrace (Orchid Country Club)

Vanda Terrace is located at the Golf Clubhouse of Orchid Country Club. Orchid Country Club (OCC) was opened by the late Mr Ong Teng Cheong in 1991 who mooted the idea of developing a golf and country club for workers. Today, it is a wonderland of social, recreational and entertainment facilities. OCC provides a free Shuttle Bus Service from Yishun MRT Station to the country club. The OCC Shuttle Bus Service schedule can be found here.
Vanda Terrace is an alfresco-style dining outlet that serves local cuisine.
Part of the section is closed for OCC members only. For OCC members, they will be a 10% discount and waiver of 10% service charge.
Despite it being an outdoor environment, the place was well-ventilated as there were many ceiling fans. In addition, customers can just relax and enjoy a good view of the golf course.
Live Band
During that night, there was a live band! What a way to relax and bask in the relaxed atmosphere. Thumbs up. Kee Chiu!
Menu - Soup & Salads, Light Bites
Menu - Local Fares
Menu - Desserts
Selected sections of the menu that includes soup, light bites, local fares and desserts.
Light Bites: Oriental-Style Chicken Wings (1/2 dozen) $9
The Oriental Style Chicken Wings was well-marinated and cooked. There were very crispy. However, it was a tad too oily. And I felt that the chicken wings were not meaty enough to justify this price.
Local Fares: Laksa Paradise $7.90
Local Fares: Laksa Paradise $7.90
The Laksa Paradise consist of ingredients such as thick beehoon, prawns, cockles, fish cake slices, chicken, quail eggs, bean sprouts and dried beancurd.
Local Fares: Bitter Gourd Seafood Hor Fun $7.90
Local Fares: Bitter Gourd Seafood Hor Fun $7.90
The Bitter Gourd Seafood Hor Fun (Hor Fan) consist of flat rice noodles served with prawns, squid, fish slices and sliced bitter gourds. This is a very decent plate of Hor Fan. The squids were overcooked and was hard. On the other hand, the prawns were very fresh (firm, sweet and juicy). In addition, the sauce was delicious! It would have been more perfect if the slices of bitter gourd were softer.
Desserts: Chin Chow with Atap Seeds $4.50
The Chin Chow was served with shaved ice and atap seeds. A good way to cool down and relax after the meal.

Overall, Vanda Terrace certainly provides a very nice cozy ambience. The food here is actually not bad (good). In terms of pricing, it is slightly more expensive after all this is a country club. At least you do not get lousy food at expensive price. Over here, the food is good! For myself, I know that I will definitely be back!

On a side note, I have tried their Chicken Rice ages ago (5 years). It was very good, but it is available only during lunch time.
