H O S T E D

Having dined there several times before, The Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar is a place I know very well. So when Gastrosense PR agency invited me for a media tasting of their seasonal lunch set menu, I readily agreed as I’ve always enjoyed the food, ambience and service there.

A few items from the wide selection of appetisers, mains and desserts were picked for us to try, starting with a very appetising Hamachi Salad. What made this substantial starter of thickly-cut, lightly-cured fish with avocado, mixed seeds and lettuce stand out for me was the dressing. It’s far from typical as it featured a warmed grapeseed oil poured over chipotle, Korean chilli powder, ground cumin, ground fennel and anatto seeds.

I was delighted to find my favourite Samosas offered as a choice of appetiser. Crispy of skin and generously filled with moist, tasty minced chicken (it’s a mix of thigh and breast), they came with a cool cilantro yogurt dip.

If you like soups, do give the Butternut Squash Minestrone a try as it is more complex than the ones out there due to a mellow heat from fresh chili. The sourdough croutons, sautéed in olive oil and seasoned with salt before being dropped in, were a nice touch.

I have never, ever dined at this restaurant and not ordered the Calamari with foamy Yuzu Dip. Loved how light and crunchy the coating was like always.

For the mains, we tried a seafood, two kinds of meat and a pasta.

The Sea Trout - a sesame seed-encrusted fillet plated with blanched spinach, sautéed potatoes, passionfruit purée and black olive oil that came away in nice, large flakes, was light and lovely.

Between the Veal Milanese with sweet potato, dried cranberry and arugula and the Borrowdale Free Range Pork, I preferred the latter as it had a heftier bite and was accompanied by tasty stewed peppers. But the former is ideal for those of you who enjoy your meat with a bright salad.

The vegetarian Fresh Tagliatelle with Pistachio Pesto and Roasted Brussels is something I‘d order again anytime. It had great depth of flavour and a subtle kick from Thai green chillies.

We got to try all four desserts and even though the classic Salted Caramel Ice-cream Sundae delivered in every way, I was distracted by the newer creations. My fave was the Chestnut Panna Cotta with Mandarin Coulis - it’s something different and truly scrumptious. The Cinnamon Apple Cake with Macadamia Nut Crumble rivalled it but call me old-fashioned, I would prefer vanilla ice-cream instead of the green apple sorbet. The Strawberry Sundae with Kaffir Lime Meringue really wow-ed me as well, especially the ice-cream bit.

Priced at $38++ and $42++ for 2 and 3 courses respectively, with top-ups required for certain dishes, the new Weekday Lunch Set is yet another reason to visit the beautiful Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar more often.

💚 Each dish cost only $9.90++ for lunch. Just make sure you don't go too late in the afternoon because you'll be left with only a few choices left 😬 I ate the lamb leg with pan fried potatoes and capsicums. The meat was a little dry but still pretty good with the mushroom sauce. And I always love being in the European market environment of Marché the most!

This was creamy but not to the point where it’s cloying, and there was a strong truffle smell which was so inviting. Almost like a risotto actually. The mushrooms were done well, and the ratio of cheese / orzo / mushroom / egg was just nice!

This was nice! My dad picked this and he was very satisfied :) the pulled duck was tender, and the toasted sesame bun was good. The cabbage slaw provided a fresh component which complemented the duck. These were small though, on hindsight they were a bit pricey.

Preferred the hummus over the imam biyaldi, but they were both delicious, well-seasoned & refreshing. We almost ordered a second bowl of hummus, it had great texture & taste. The cauliflower & artichoke was also good; they were soft & had a nice roasty flavour, and I enjoyed the kale & creamy ricotta that came with it.

This is my second visit to don ho, and their dishes still continue to impress!

Load up on the best that Bavaria can offer at this buzzy spot on River Valley Road. Feast on their well-portioned Crispy Pork Knuckle (Half for $23) that comes with sauerkraut, bread dumpling and a tasty beer gravy. Also good is their Bavarian Sausage Platter ($26 for one portion) featuring mashed potatoes and a pretzel. Wash it all down with a pint of Original Munich Lager ($18) and you're golden!

Fork-pull-apart level of soft tender meat that was flavoured so beautifully with red wine jus. Loved the complementary sides that helped to tie the whole dish together - beetroot chunks, pickled potato and fried shallot! 😋😋 Really love the flavour of the meat though I’ve had more tender meat elsewhere, but this was definitely a nicely done beef short rib! Favourite dish here is still the Iberico Pork Tomahawk, and love the prompt service and casual chill vibes of this bar-restaurant! They’re sometimes on Chope Exclusives with 50% off, or get 1-for-1 with entertainer! 👍🏻👍🏻

Fyr never disappoints and they continue to impress me with every dish even on my third visit 😭😭 This was a really well done lamb rack, not in terms of meat doneness (evidently from that raw pink middle) but in terms of how they made the gameyness of a meat like lamb into a plus point instead of a repulsive factor?? Lamb was so succulent and juicy with lamb jus, topped with green crispy millet and a side of ratatouille! 🤤🤤 Favourite dish here is still the Iberico Pork Tomahawk, and love the prompt service and casual chill vibes of this bar-restaurant! They’re sometimes on Chope Exclusives with 50% off, or get 1-for-1 with entertainer! 👍🏻👍🏻

The lunch set here is so affordable and worth it! $20 for a burger + fries + 2 drinks 😆
