This was recommended after some rejected my recommendation of another place.
Prawn paste chicken
Sambal Potato leaves
Herbal Frog leg soup
Black pepper crabs
These are the dishes we had. I would not highly recommend this place to my friend. I have another place which I prefer to go to. Why? I didn't like the crabs. I didn't think the crabs were the best in town. But a meal is best only with good company. I think the company was what made this meal great.
Mango sago & pomelo
Water Chestnut with egg
I was so busy shooting... that the bread became cold when we started eating it.... so the service staff were nice enough to get us another warm portion :)
Though they might not be piping hot, but they were still good :P I wish i am good enough a writer to tell you how the custard and crust taste... but I guess I did not leave all my student traits in the good old days... I am still not able to write well to save my life.
Chicken Curry puff and Char Siew (Barbecued Pork) Crispy Pastry
Although i am not a fan of their Char Siew (BBQ) crispy pastry, I looooooooove their chicken curry puff. BTW if u are thinking that chicken curry meant it would be spicy, u can't be more wrong. It was sweet and savoury like a meat pie. :D
It was a hot and hot day! :P We were so glad to get out of the heat... so we basically had to have so much drinks in a row, just to cool down before starting on our meal.
I love the touch of orange drink mix that was at the bottom of the spoon, added an unqiue touch to this dish. But we didn't like the 2nd order of it, which didn't have any of those orange drink mix powder... instead more salt was added... :p
Anchovies with mozarella
One of my favorite dish :D
Gazpacho (Spainish cold tomato soup)
The greenish thing in the nice package was an herbal ice cube. It's special cause I rarely see it done with a nice green ice cube... but then I still prefer the previous way of serving with the nice shiso leaf tempura :D And also the bits and pieces of pepper in there... yucks. I think I prefer the soup plain with the tempura.
Sauerkraut Salmon roll
I do not like this too much. I like the look of it, but the taste is not quite my cup of tea. I didn't like the sauerkraut, actually I never did like sauerkraut before.
I always like Risotto, and sometimes chefs don't do it well. But this was okay.... I think having a whole squid does put a nice touch to the whole look of it.
I like the puree.. I think this place does such good puree of anything :D hehehe I think I will eat almost anything that's puree at this place.
Sirloin Steak with Mash potato
Pork sirloins with baby potatoes
