During a catching up lunch with *Mel, I was introduced to The Den Bar and Kitchen (by day; it morphs into a wine bar with tapas by night). Located along the rows of shophouses along Raffles Place area, this European-styled bistro houses lots of collections from (the founders?) travels around the world, and is a relatively new kid on the block, having been around for about a year.The Boneless Chicken Thigh (SGD$16.00) was served with smashed sweet potatoes, sautéed haricot verts, and jus. The huge chicken thigh was Cajun-marinated; its tender, moistened flesh basking in the exotic smoky hints of the flavour.The Lemon-Butter Seafood Pasta (SGD$15.00) – made up of spaghetti in lemon-butter sauce, chives, lime leaf, white fish, squids and prawns. Springy strands of long, slim pastas tangled themselves around fresh, springy prawns and squids as well as luscious flaky white fish. Lemon-butter was refreshing – not too thick or greasy at all, but a gently zest was emanated. It was quite a lovely pasta dish.For full review and more detailed information, please feel free to visit:http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2016/06/lunch-at-den-bar-and-kitchen-raffles.html continue reading

Ave and I discovered this gem of a place through The Entertainer App - Bartini Kitchen @ Boon Tat Street. It seems rather empty and quiet on a weekday night (ideal for dates!) even though it's quite near to Raffles Place/ Telok Ayer MRT. The food preparation took nearly thirty minutes and we were starving... but luckily, good things are worth waiting for. The 1-for-1 deals were applicable for only main courses, but it was good enough for us. Each main course here is priced around $17/18/21/23/24/36, depending on your choice.The sinful and richly yummy Mac and Cheese ($17) was the first to reach, complete with a generous dollop of truffles! Well, truffles can make any dish premium almost immediately, what's more Bartini Kitchen's Mac and Cheese was the lighter version of most of its other variants, with a combination of three types of cheeses used. The slightly seared burnt surface made it even tastier.Bangers and Mash ($24) was delightfully delicious, with springy grilled Italian sausages generously soaked in buttery shallot gravy and fresh mashed potatoes. The savoury kick packs a punch.My tastebuds weren't too agreeable with the Lamb Ragout ($24) - which was a linguini pasta dish tossed with heartily pulled lamb stewed meat and grana padano cheese. I found the taste of lamb a little overpowering and well, too lamb-ie. The linguine itself was good though, if it's good ol' beef bolognaise sauce I'd love it.The Chicken Kiev ($24) was wonderful especially because the crisp breaded chicken breast was tender and complemented with the bacon and spinach mash. It might err slightly on the drier side, but the sauce made it all better. It also had a hint of tarragon herbs and cheese.The entire place evokes a comfortable Friday night out vibe, with an extensive bar counter and slightly dimmed lights. Perfect for an extended dinner date for long chats with friends in that huge armchairs!Find out how to get the 1 for 1 deal in detail here: http://www.amiehu.com/2014/07/bartini-kitchen-boon-tat-street-with.html continue reading
