The last time I had the Black Sheep Cafe was in their older establishment in Bugis, though it's situated in a corner of the basement of a condo, I was surprised to find that lighting was still ample and there were window seats so it didn't feel claustrophobic at all.
I was also surprised to see that they had more staff so it isn't as cozy as it used to be, but they now have a prominent bar area.
I came on a weekend so there was no lunch set menu, but I believe it's a good deal to go there for lunch then sit there and have tea to either chill or to study. I miss their dinner set menus that they used to have though.
The total meal cost about $150 which included escargot, 4 main courses, and 2 desserts. Black Sheep Cafe does not include GST and Service Charge
That's really worth it considering the cuisine, environment, and quality of the food!
Escargot was very huge, however the garlic and butter did not get infused in the meat, so it wasn't particularly tasty.
We ordered two portions of the duck confit ($26.50 each). The mashed potatos were done very nicely as my sister kept on trying to take them from me (none of that instant stuff). What's in the spoon is sort of like a mango salsa which had an indian flavor to it.
My dad ordered the Pork Cheek at $28.50 and said that the pork tasted like ham since it was rather salty
I'm not too sure because I didn't want to waste my stomach space and savor every bite of what I had ordered with space for dessert.
Lamb ranks at $38.60 were done very well. I think the picture captures it well cause I'm salivating just looking at it and thinking back
Lemon Cheesecake was just the right thickness that leaned towards an American Cheesecake without being overbearing as the lemon and citrus helped each bite be really refreshing
Tiramisu came with fruits on top and was very generous with the rum (not for the faint hearted alcoholic), but each bite was so good that it was finished up before we had barely begun. The balance of the ingredients inside were just right.
