I've heard from my friends that this restaurant is quite good. Finally I had a chance to patronize it today. I decided to try the set lunch at $14.90 nett. There's a choice of soup (a soup of the day with garlic bread, tom yam soup or green curry chicken), a main dish (about 5 choices, couldn't remember all of them), a dessert (scoop of ice cream with 3 flavors to choose from) and a drink (with 3 choices available). For a while, I pondered over their listing of green curry chicken under the "sou
Wow, I was amazed by the amount of chicken they gave. If I had a bowl of rice with this, it's already a complete meal! And this is only my "soup" for the set meal. The green curry was spicy & thick, rather tasty, a pretty authentic Thai taste to it I'll say. The chicken pieces could be a little bit more tender but it's still alright. The curry's good though.
For my main, I chose the Fettuccine with black pepper beef. Once again, another daring choice I thought - but I wanted to see how they will pull off this fusion dish. Boy, I was surprised that it's actually quite a good dish. There was lots of tasty black pepper sauce used to fry the fettuccine. You really get a fusion feel for this dish. I liked the tender beef & the finely sliced green capsicum. The serving was large too. Texture of the fettuccine felt just right too. Once again, thumbs up! - Fettuccine with black pepper beef
I was very full but of course there's always room for dessert ya. A small scoop of mocha chip ice cream is given. I was very glad that it did not taste like cheap ice cream. In fact, the coffee taste was fragrant and the ice cream not too sweet. Another surprisingly good item. - Mocha chip ice cream
Finally, down to the drink. The lemongrass drink I had was a a bit dilute, tasted a bit like a slightly sweetened drink with not much lemongrass taste.
Black Canyon Coffee has definitely surpassed my expectations. I came out of the restaurant feeling really satisfied. Perhaps that's why the place was filled up fast during lunchtime, I'm sure other diners liked this place as well.
