The Platypus Kitchen Story
Nick revealed to us many times how he dislikes misrepresentation. Hence, if there's another tag line suitable for Platypus Kitchen, it would be "What you see is what you get."
Time to see it for yourselves! Do remember to eat before you continue reading the entire post! Don't blame me for feeling hangry later, ok? Yes, HANGRY. Short for angry and hungry. LOL
Let's start with the appetizers.
Crab Cakes ($12.90, soon to be $9.90)
Truffle Fries ($6.90)
Hangry already? Haha! Wait for the main course...
Saffron and Caviar Risotto ($19.90)
Care for a spoonful of this awesome dish? This is OH-SO-GOOOOOOD and reasonably priced too. DDMT (Die die must try)!
Squid-Ink Scallops Ragout ($16.50)
Squid-Ink Tagliolini served with seared bay scallops in a light garlic-dashi sauce. Nicholas said it will not stain your teeth. If you are a fan of squid-ink dishes, you must try this. Nick said it won't stain your teeth.
Egg Tagliatelle with double-smoked bacon and mushrooms in a truffle egg-yolk sauce. This dish spells heaven to me. 'Nuff said.
Pressed Pork Belly ($19.90)
Supple crispy skin pork belly served with braised apples, garden vegetables and a honey and clove apple glaze. This dish is very sweet and hearty. I made a mental note to order this for my girl next time, she will surely love it.
And I saved one of the bests for last! Presenting...
Spicy "Diablo" Crab and Prawn
Egg Tagliolini with prawns and crab claw tossed in a spicy egg sauce. Another heavenly creation by the genius chef.
I am not so much into spicy food but this dish left quite an impression to my taste buds. Yes, it was THAT good and not too spicy. Another DDMT!
Dying from hunger already? Wait, we have not tried the desserts!
Iced Sea Salt Caramel ($8.90)
Sea salt and caramel butter cream, chocolate peanut butter brittle, ganache and popping candy. Yes, POPPING candy!!! We were all joking around that we should record a video to show you how the popping candy pops in our mouth. In the end, we just indulge ourselves with this sweet treat.
I had a taste of everything down to the dessert. The servings were NOT entirely mine, we all shared for food tasting indulgence.
