With tunes from the 70s-80s playing on the background, part of me wishes there were a gramophone somewhere to complete the experience. Everything screams old school from tiles to tables to signages and well, I really just needed an old ah pek to hobble over to take my orders. Blast from the past I must say.
The perils of being housed in a matured estate - uncles who insist on communal dining. Cai png from the template and a really hungry old man.
Truffle Fries ($10)
It was a tragic case of foie gras with fries versus truffle and the latter was highly recommended yet it was just a basket of fries with cheese. Wherein smells the truffle? Beats me, I actually questioned the smell buds of the order taker who claimed it signature.
Anatra Pasta ($18)
Reads pasta with duck ragout - an absolutely tasty dish with a generous portion of duck ragout, it could pass off as mee pok even and earn brownie points for marrying East and West. \
Meat Lovers Pizza ($18)
The molten cheese made this beyond delicious - well just the cheese since everything else was forgettable and pizza base was not the best eaten.
Two Face Signature Drink ($4)
Pineapple, Cai Xin, Sour Plum
Yes, chye sim or cai xin was blended into a wheatgrass lookalike and neutralised with the tropical flavours of pineapple and infused with sour plum which effectively turns the whole drink one flavour - like fairy godmother's wand would. Sour plum fans, only.
Average food with an ambience that speaks so much louder - in short, a pity. I would be back to check out their morning offerings - Jalan Tua Kong's famous Bak chor mee anyone?
Wait, I did not even know of its existence.
