I’ll admit this meal I had was quite a while back. Dan and I were at Bugis and decided to eat here because it was quieter in comparison to the rest of Bugis – have you been there on a weekend?? Anyhow, I prepared the pictures for uploading and then…. had other stuff to eat that were better so those got to cut the blog queue. It’s been a few days of eating at the same restaurants I’ve blogged about before(creature of habit I am) and of packed dinners (economical rice rocks) so I was wondering what eats to share. Then I saw these pictures and my mouth could almost taste the food – must be good to have remained so fresh in my mind, so here’s sharing :
When I saw this picture, I was reminded about how we were trying not to finish the buns before our food arrived. Warm and toasty buns with nice dips are so hard to resist, especially when you’re hungry and your main course takes some time to arrive. Maybe mediterranean restaurants have to stay true to their theme of being relaxed and unhurried – even for drinks and (baby)cutlery =p It could also be that sitting at a table with a screaming fussy child makes you hope that your food arrives quickly so you can eat and disappear.
Then the appetizer arrived – Dan ordered a chicken tikka :
Doesn’t look like much right? But every piece of chicken was well marinated and tasted tender, juicy and flavorful! The pita bread on the side was warm, fluffy and chewy. We weren’t so antsy once this dish came. Not sure if it’s cos it was so good, or cos we were hungry. Or cos our helper brought our screaming baby for a walk outside so we could chill and eat.
Then my main course arrived and all was forgiven. This is one REALLY good Barramundi. It’s a generous portion of tender, salted just right and pan fried just right barrumundi, on a bed of soft mashed and crunchy greens.
Dan was all silent when he ate his lamb(sorry, Dan told me it’s not lamb!) pork chop with mint sauce, sauteed asparagus and poached pear/peach (sorry – I can’t remember as well what I didn’t eat and I’m not so good at identifying cooked fruit. )… Suffices to say he really enjoyed it because I could see that he was savouring every bite.
We also ordered a pizza but that doesn’t warrant photo space because it tasted a little like frozen pizza but better. ie: not woodfired pizza which is the only type I really like =p If I don’t remember wrongly, main courses are about 28++ – the regular hotel restaurant type price….
It was a really nice evening after that – baby came back happy(cos she got to go ‘walk walk’), and parents satisfied with dinner. It’s all about finding something for everybody, right? =)
I hear this place is good for buffets and desserts as well. Let me know if you try it!
