It is one of the many restaurants under the Prive Group, and it is known to have one of the best pork chops in town. The restaurant has an interesting concept of "nose-to-tail", where it serves various dishes made from different parts of the pig. The restaurant looks small from outside but has a long dining room.Tonight we are having the Restaurant Week Dinner at $35++ per person for a 3 course meal. I am a bit disappointed as complimentary bread is not served in this meal.Based on the staff's r
Foie Gras Parfait
housemade orange marmalade
It is served with 2 pieces of hard toasts, which I feel is not enough.
Crispy Pig Ear Salad (usual $18++)
endive, chervil, pomegranate, aioli
It is light and crispy, but a bit too chewy and tough after sometimes.
Mangalica Pork Chop (350g) (usual $42++)
mesclum, maple-glazed sweet potatoes & choice of juniper berry sauce
Contains the highest percentage of fat amongst all pork, melts in the mouth and offers a refreshing aftertaste without an overpowering aroma.
Baked Red Snapper Fillet
cous cous, olives, fennel, cherry tomatoes Although there is two choices on the menu, both of us decide to go for the pork chop. I have the meat cooked middle as recommended by the staff. Although it is thick in size, it slices through quite easily. Inside it is juicy and pinkish in colour. The meat is tender and has no gamey taste. The staff also served 4 different sauces such as horseradish and mustard to go with the meat.
Pear Tarte Tatin (usual $15++)
vanilla ice cream
With only fork, it is quite difficult to cut through the tart, as it is not flaky enough. It tastes not bad, but lacking of caramel taste.
Sticky Toffee Date Pudding
pecans, butterscotch sauce, vanilla ice cream
The pudding is soft and moist, as well as, yummy in taste.
Overall the food is not bad. The service is uneven. After having the starters, the staff uses a cloth to clear the table which has bits of the crispy pig's ear. There is still bits of the crispy pig's ear after the clearing. Before having dessert, the staff asks if we would like coffee or tea. My partner would like a coffee, but even after finishing the dessert, it is not served. Seem like the staff has forgetten about it. Total bill is $115.40. I am also disappointed that I have not the much talked about bag of complimentary pork crackling to bring back.
