Screening Room (12th Oct 2008)

"Milk Milk, Milk ah milk!!! (maybe not in that sickening sweet voice I am hearing in my head), there is a place I been to with some Bloggers. Their foods are quite good. " I think that's what she said... I can't imagine any differ.. :p

Duck Fat potato cake (Roasted and deep fried potato cake with rosemary, thyme and duck fat)
What really got me interested in this dish was "Fat" duck fat... some more... yummy. Unfortunately for me ... the potato wasn't mashed ... and were in chunks.... That disappointment took away any little enjoyment I might have from it.

The Wagyu Burger

(The Wagyu (300-day grain-fed minced Australian Wagyu beef with a super high 9-BLM marbling rating) Burger topped with Caramelised Onions and Aioli )

Fricassee of shellfish (fricassee of shellfish with gnocchi in shellfish broth )
the gnocchi was in such small quanity... the shellfish was so so... the broth wasn't fantastic... all in all, this was a weird dish.

Handmade raw milk cheeses

R to L :-
1) espoisses de bourgogne - double creme from burgundy washed with marc
2) reblochon - washed rind unpressed soft cheese from savoie
3) beaufort - ancient alpine style pressed and cooked from rhone-alpes
4) brenis du lavort - uncooked, pressed and semi-hard cheese from Auvergne
5) selles sur cher - ash covered soft cheese from centre.

Definitely will go back for the cheese :D

I know that all my statements from above ain't a good reflection on this place... But I always believe that a place can't be perfect. Screening room... has good cheese and a good atmosphere... esp the roof top where it is extremely cosy and a lovely lovely place to relax. There are plenty of dishes that are on the menu which I had not tried.

A plus point for it, would be the nice little theatre room it has... I am sure it would be a good place for a group of frens to relax and catch a movie in a nice cosy environment with better food than the local cinemas.
