Food with a French twist Smile Aug 22, 2013

Categories : French | Restaurant | Seafood | Steaks and Grills | Burgers and Sandwiches

 

 

 
Mushroom cappuccino ($4.90) Rich, earthy soup made with mushrooms and topped with a salty foam. I would have enjoyed this hearty soup more if not for the tinge of sourness.

 
Saveur’s pasta ($4.90 for entree, $6.90 for main): Saveur’s take on our local bak chor mee (minced meat noodles). Capellini pasta tossed with chili oil, fine-chopped konbu and sakura ebi with minced pork sauce. The pasta was cooked al dente and coated with just the right amount of sauce. For some strange reasons, the mushy meat sauce was reminiscent of a chicken mayo spread. That aside, the dried shrimps added a nice bite to the dish without overpowering it like how the usual hei bi (dried shrimps) can be.

 
Rib eye steak ($22.90 for 180g): Rib eye steak served on truffle mash. Well seasoned and flavourful, the steak was a decent considering the price. Unfortunately, it was a little too rare for medium rare doneness. Though it was a steak dish, the truffle mash stole the limelight. Creamy and fragrant, it certainly was a delight just eating it on its own.

 
Beef tenderloin ($24.90): Beef tenderloin with potato au gratin (pronounced grah-tan), carrot puree, button mushrooms, red radish, baby carrot and beef jus. The steak was well seasoned and sufficiently rested, evident in the juices that was retained despite being cooked to medium doneness (as requested by my friend).

 
Strawberries and cream ($9.90): Basil ice cream, macerated strawberries, meringues and strawberry leather. The basil ice cream paired surprisingly well with the sweet strawberries and doubled up as a palate cleanser too. The meringues were a nice play on the textures, and I particularly liked it with the strawberry leather.

Overall, this is the place to go for decent food with a French twist in a relaxed and casual setting. Not forgetting warm service and affordable prices too. That said, do go to the restaurant with reasonable expectations and bear in mind the amount you are paying.

Located on busy Tanjong Pagar Road, this cafe can be easily identified by its red door frame. Bar seats are available on the ground floor but I prefer the window seats on the second floor.

 

 
Big 94 ($14): Hearty serve of sausage, honey cured bacon, mushrooms, baked beans, toast and eggs of your choice. This is one big breakfast that will hit all the right spot, plus it’s good value for $14.

Bacon baked eggs ($12): This comes with mushrooms, tomato and homemade baked beans, finished with melted cheese. Love the cheesy half cooked egg yolk which broke gloriously.

Chicken and avocado sandwich ($8): Tender pieces of chicken marinated in spices with chunks of creamy avocado, served between two warm and thick crusty bread. Love the contrast of warm bread against the cool yogurt mint sauce.

Latte ($4.50): The coffee was strong and smooth with no lingering bitterness, complete with a velvety milk foam.

Of decadent wagyu dons Smile Mar 04, 2014

Located in Camden Medical Centre, this Japanese steakhouse is every beef eater’s paradise. Wagyu takes main stage here but other non-beef options are available as well if your dining partner doesn’t take beef. Every set lunch starts with a salad, miso soup and chawanmushi, and ice cream to round up the meal.

 
Fat Cow Donburi ($38): Medium rare wagyu beef with a lovely char-grilled taste, paired with a soft runny yolk set on a bed of rice and finished with a touch of truffle oil. Perfection in a bowl.

 
Fat Foa-Gura Don ($42): Cubes of grilled beef and buttery foie gras covered in a sweet and savoury sauce on rice. The sauce isn’t sickly sweet but unfortunately, it overpowered the taste of the grilled wagyu.

Overall, this place is recommended for beef lovers and service is attentive as well. Definitely worth a visit to try the food at the restaurant.

Save the calories Cry Feb 13, 2014

Located in hip cafe enclave – Jalan Besar and helmed by blogger Peggy and friend, the cafe has a young and trendy vibe. Quirky decor, mostly of their mascot – Sir Antonio greets you as you step into the bright and spacious cafe.

 

 

 
Tiramisu ($7.50): We went with the staff’s recommendation of Horlicks, Ovaltine and Milo (only one shown here since they looked the same) flavours in the end. The tiramisu came in a cute jar which was rather interesting, but unfortunately, it didn’t live up to its looks. All three were lacking in the taste department, and it felt like the tiramisu had been made and left in the jar for quite sometime.

Sorry to say, but friendly service alone isn't enough for for my friends and I to return for a second visit.

A relatively new addition to the Keong Saik area, Lime House is also the first and only (so far) restaurant serving Caribbean food in Singapore.

 
After much deliberation, we decided to kick start dinner with two popular starters and a salad, followed by two mains and a side serve of vegetable (not shown here).

 
Doubles ($8): Curried chickpeas served on fried flat bread and topped with tamarind sauce, hot sauce and mango chutney. A hot favourite that night, this is one appetiser you do not want to miss. To eat it the way the Trini locals do, leave your utensils aside, tear up the bread, pinch some chickpeas (don’t forget the sauce!) and let the party in your mouth begin. MUST ORDER.

 
Crab & Callaloo ($15): Crabmeat stuffed boiled dumplings in callaloo. The dumplings were generously filled with crabmeat and the dumpling skin was just right (not too thick).

 
Lime House “Paradise” Salad ($12 + $3 for chicken): Mixed greens with cherry tomatoes, mango, roasted coconut an rum orange dressing and topped with jerk chicken. The Jerk (essentially a hot spice mix) chicken was tender and well marinated, and fresh greens tossed with just the right amount of dressing to coat it. The refreshingly light and citrus-y dressing was a good starter to tantalise any taste buds and increase appetite in preparation of for the main course.

 
Baby Back Ribs ($28): Not the most photogenic dish, but who cares when you have fall-off-the-bone meaty goodness? The lightly seasoned grilled vegetables had a nice char-grilled taste and the buttery potato chump (essentially mashed potato) was a delight.

 
Curry Goat ($28): Curry goat served with rice and peas and plantain batons. Spicy and slightly smokey, the curry was pretty different from the local ones we are used to. The cubes of goat were surprisingly tender, and best enjoyed with a spoonful of rice. The plantain batons – which are similar to banana crisps, but less sweet – added a a nice crunch to this dish. Wished they gave more though.

 
Deconstructed Pina Colada ($12): Coconut custard with pineapple compote and lime sherbet. This edible mocktail is a perfect end to a meal of big flavours. To enjoy it at its best, make sure you get a bit of everything in each spoonful. MUST ORDER.

Overall: This place is highly recommended for its food (they are the one and only anyway) and given how reasonably priced the food menu is, coupled with the warm hospitality and attentive service, there’s no reason why this isn’t on your ‘to try’ list.
