Newly opened at TripleOne Somerset, it's a good chill-out spot centrally located, yet away from the busy crowds. We'd first heard of them at the Sustainable Seafood Festival where they'd showcased the Patagonian Toothfish Ceviche Taco as part of the movement to preserve our previous seafood supply.Poutine ($10)A classic messy dish with all the gooey goodness - combination of fries, cheese and gravy. I would have preferred stronger flavours, and perhaps less soggy fries but it was still a decent

Surf 'n' Turf Gumbo ($27) Another classic American dish, it's usually served as a side, though this came under the mains menu. Served with dirty rice, which is somewhat like spiced rice, it came hidden in a stew with prawns, chicken, sausage and greens. Strong fiery kick, it was shiok for us, and I loved how the stew changed with the flavour of the dirty rice that was pretty plain initially, giving it a whole new twist, that we'd ordered second helpings of the dirty rice to mix in. A plate of soul food goodness indeed!
Dirty Rice ($4) Fried Buttermilk Chicken ($22)
A random craving got us ordering this, with perfectly crisp chicken (albeit a little small), and tender juicy flesh. I liked the extra crunch yet not overdone, and the accompanying dips went well with it. Its side of vegetables was a tad overcooked though, with a charred bitter after-taste.
Season's Deconstructed Banana Split ($12)
Indeed a pretentious one, this was basically 'goreng pisang' or banana fritters with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Though the banana was freshly fried, its batter was chewy and lacked crisp. We loved the scoop of ice cream though, and it would have been perfect if the cream could have been changed to an additional scoop! With its price point, we find it on the high side given its portioning sizes. Its signature dessert didn't quite meet our expectations, though its mains were pretty good in its flavours. We loved it for its ambience and strong kick in flavours.
We would probably return for its lunch deals that certainly seems tempting with $12.99 sets, inclusive of a main course, soup of the day and unlimited soft drinks or coffee!
