Star of the day: Ribs and Belly Good
Contents of the dish: All 3 of us were encouraged to give different inputs regarding this dish.
So HP talked about the dish being presentable, with the meats tasty and easy to swallow which is friendly for children or elderly.
CF discussed about the meat being neither fatty not oily, which translates to an excellent not-so-sinful indulgence.
For me, I found the dish rather special, made up of 5 different elements, providing a whole array of contrasting flavours for our tastebuds. I mentioned well-balanced not merely for the taste of the dish, but also in the sense of it being a well-balanced meal - there are 2 kinds of meats and 3 different kinds of vegetables here.
Also, my most important criteria for good food lies in taste and texture. Presentation is important but secondary. This dish excelled in both the former and latter, so I gave it high marks for its appealing factor.
I went on to share that whenever I ate Western food, I usually leave the potatoes behind because I don't enjoy the starchiness and mushiness (texture) of potatoes commonly used - makes me feel bloated sick really quickly. For the above dish, the potatoes were lovely; the texture was delicate. I could eat lots it it! Jessica, the Executive Director of Billy Bombers, confirmed that they used red american potatoes for the better quality and texture, as well as for that all-american dining experience.
I also drew attention to the Sauerkraut, because it is rather uncommon in Singapore. Sauerkraut originated from Germany, and is actually finely-sliced, fermented/picked cabbage, so the authentic version tastes really distinctively sour. It is an acquired taste, so those who aren't able to take it would find it pungent. For me, I'd say that Billy Bombers' version of Sauerkraut is enjoyable and mild, which is excellent for local taste. The slight tinge of pickled sourness really whets the appetite!
As for the ribs and pork belly? They are yummy! Personally I really liked the Original sauce because it is chocked-full of flavours. I usually prefer spicy food, but this time round I feel that the spiciness takes away the fullness of the taste. Pork Belly
I did this to check on the texture and juiciness. Result? Pass! =) Ribs
Checking on the tenderness and fall-off-the-bone quality. Result? Pass! =) Mango Tango Milkshake
They have new flavours for milkshakes on the menu! Mango Tango was good!
