The West End Boutique Restaurant is the brainchild of two brothers who share a common love for perfectly grilled meat and they are popular for the tenderloin steak.


The set lunch menu
The set lunch menu changes weekly and you get to choose between 2 main courses. All main course comes with either a soup of the day/ salad. The set lunch offered for today ( 4th week) is the Beef Goulash and Roast Chicken & Salmon Enoki.
Other than the Executive set lunch, the ala-carte menu features asian dishes such as fried rice and tex mex cuisines such as fajitas.

Salad
The salad was a bowl of iceberg lettuce , tomatoes, capsicums , carrot shreds , onions and drizzled with some 1000island dressing. Nothing special about that.

Roasted chicken & Salmon Enoki ($19.90+)
The roasted chicken fillet was nicely roasted and served with teriyaki sauce & top with some sesame seeds. The meat was tender but I find the portion a little small.
The Salmon fillet was wrapped around with enoki mushrooms. The salmon has a crispy texture and the meat was not too tough.
I enjoyed the baked potato the most as the skin was baked till crisp yet it was not mushy.
Verdict: Popular with the office people & expect the restaurant to be crowded during lunch & dinner time. The executive set lunch is changed weekly . No GST here but 10% still applies.

Not too long ago, I brought Mum to try the crepes from Out of the Pan & I enjoyed the Chicken cutlet so much so that I want to order it again. I think the waiter made a mistake the previous time cos I ordered the ‘‘ Asian Spiced chicken salad” but he served me the Chicken cutlet instead. When I ordered the ‘‘ Asian Spiced chicken salad” this time, I was surprised that the dish looks so different and double check if they have made a mistake . After re-confirmation, I realized that the waiter who served me the previous time made a mistake in my order and this time the order was the correct one.


Turkey Salad ($9.50++)
The salad came with generous pieces of turkey ham. I like the tangy apple balsamic which goes very well with the salad leaves and turkey ham.

Asian spiced chicken salad ($12.50++)
This is the correct version of the ”Asian spiced chicken salad”.Pieces of chicken breast meat lightly drizzled with some asian dressing( a little tangy). I am not a fan of breast meat and it was a little tad too dry for my liking.



Peking duck crepe ($16.50++)
The signature crepe here & Mum had it in the sun-dried tomato crepe. She enjoyed the duck meat but the skin was a little too chewy & rubbery. There were significant pieces of lychee meat in it to add a tinge of sweetness. The only downside- Crepe was too thick.


Tandoori chicken crepe($15.50++)
There were generous chunks of tandoori chicken in the crepe but the meat was a little too tough and dry. The crepe skin was again- toooo thick!
Verdict: Hits & misses here. The turkey salad is the type of salad that I personally like & I missed the Chicken cutlet!

Reasonable set lunch Smile Sep 30, 2010

The last visit to Le Figue was with Rachel to celebrate her birthday as well as trying the set lunch. Both Rachel & I were impressed by the Chef’s creativity as he was able to play around with the food – textures, emulsions, carpaccio…etc. Every dish is a piece of art ( too pretty to be consumed ). I went back again to Le Figue to try the set lunch for this week.


Tortellini of suckling piglet

” Tortellini of suckling piglet, arugula Salad, Bouchon Green Apple, Balsamic Reduction, Jus De Brun”

The 4 tortellini were wrapped with cubes of suckling piglet .The texture & flavour reminds me of the chinese braised pork belly cut into mini cubes. The skin of the tortellini was not too thick and balsamic reduction added a tangy finish.

Crabmeat salad

”Salad Of New Season Beetroot, Crab Meat, Chive Flower, Flat Parsley, Citrus Cream, Orange Reduction”

3 small portions of crabmeat were a thin beetroot carpaccio were served with citrus cream. The citrus cream has bits of orange peel in it which I enjoyed it. The crabmeat would be better if a little black pepper was sprinkled . You could ask for some wholemeal bread to go along with the crabmeat salad.


Tuna Maguro


” Pan Seared Tuna Maguro, Crispy Silver Fish, Celeriac Puree, Garlic Chips, Fine Beans, Potato Emulsion”

2 pieces of thick seared tuna was served. Sad to say that there was one piece that was over-seared, resulting the fish meat to be tough and difficult to chew. The celeriac puree was smooth and the sliver fish was battered till crispy.

Verdict: If you like to enjoy your lunch/ dinner in a quiet & peaceful environment , Le Figue is the ideal choice. According to them, the restaurant is very quiet on Wednesday & Thursday afternoon so feel free to drop by for lunch . I wouldn’t mind returning weekly for their set lunch.

Generous portions OK Sep 29, 2010

Categories : Italian | Middle Eastern/Mediterranean | Pasta | Seafood | Steaks and Grills

It had been quite a long while since I went to Millenia Walk. I vividly remembered it was pretty boring( in terms of restaurant choices) but it undergo some sort of renovations . Some restaurants were being replaced and the newer ones seemed to be ”surviving strong”.
Bel Mondo is one of the newer restaurant and offers South Italian cuisine at reasonable prices.

The use of bright and cheerful colours liven up the atmosphere. There is a bar area facing the window of the kitchen where we can observe the chefs making pizzas on the spot.

The Menu
They offer a $15 nett set lunch on weekdays. The set lunch comes with a soup of the day, pizza/ pasta of choice, dessert of the day and a beverage. The pizzas were freshly made on the spot and thus a waiting time of 10mins is required. The downside, they use a normal oven instead of charcoal oven.
A small selections of appetizers and mains were offered but there were a large selections on pastas and risottos.

Caesar salad ($12++)
The caesar salad comes in a generous portion with romaine lettuce, bacon, garlic croutons and parmesan shavings. The dressing was unevenly mixed and some romaine lettuce were heavily salted. The bacon were also on the salty side and garlic croutons was too hard.

Half roasted chicken with mesclun salad ($25++)
The roasted chicken was recommended by the waitress. I didn’t expect the serving size to be rather huge! The ”bird” was nicely roasted with a crispy and non-oily skin. The meat of chicken leg and wing was rather tender but I simply couldn’t stomach 1/2 roasted chicken by myself, considering that I had the Caesar salad before this. I left the breast part ( which was dry) untouched.
Verdict: The $ 15 nett set lunch is well-worth it and it was popular with the office people working around that area. Service is efficient and ”service with a smile”.

Great sandwiches Smile Sep 28, 2010

Categories : Café | Burgers and Sandwiches | Salads

The Moomba Tuckshop,located at the ground level of Bank of China Building offers fantastic sandwiches!

Seafood on Dark Rye bread($9)

You can opt for the bread- multigrain, brioche, onion & sage, spinach, walnut or dark rye bread.The ”seafood’‘ isn’t the usual prawns and squids but lots of blueswimmer crabmeat with marinated wakame and tobiko !The bread itself is a little dry and chewy but they were so generous with the crabmeat. The tobiko complement the crab very well & gives a crunchy texture. I tried to finish every morsel , leaving just a small slice of bread behind.
Verdict: The place is very small, with limited tables inside. It was rather cramped and stuffy having food there , inhaling all sorts of funny smell from the kitchen.

 
Generous crabmeat!
