Projectshop Cafe, Paragon
Projectshop is actually a clothing store at Paragon (#03-41, 6735-6765) that strangely runs a cafe/restaurant on the side, complete with an extended seating area out in the common hallway near the escalators. I never would have wanted to eat at such a place, but one of my colleagues mentioned to me how this place wasn't too bad. In the interests of some tight time tonight too, we stopped here to see how good it could be as we were already in the building anyway.
I ordered a roast beef sandwich, which I figured would be pretty straightforward. What I got instead though was almost like Salisbury steak, complete with gravy and onions (but with strips of roast beef), sitting only halfway on top of a piece of bread, while the rest of it spilled over onto the plate. The second piece of bread was strangely placed with the mayo spread facing outwards, while the dry side touched the gravy on the inside. Clearly this wasn't the sandwich I had in mind, and I had to resort to using a knife and fork to eat this instead. The taste wasn't anything spectacular, and the meat was a little tougher than I'd like. I didn't even finish it all.
Well, to their credit, I did get some crushed mint and lime soda that was pretty good and unique. I can imagine if their desserts might be good too. But I was foolish to come here to order food. I'm going to have to talk to my colleague next week to see what it was that he ordered here that was so good, because clearly this thing wasn't it.
