When Indian meet Mexican food, we have poppadom nachos 》$15

A Indian twist on a Mexican classic with poppadoms and nacho cheese to relish a mild spicy platter that everyone can enjoy.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @tacomantra for hosting.

Ribeye steak, fried pork belly, chicken tikka, mantra wings, samosas and served with slaw, poppadom chips, mint yogurt and house sauce 》$60

The crispy and crackling pork belly is pretty good except it was a little salty and their chicken tikka is the star in this platter… it’s just awesome! Pair this platter with the wide range of craft beer available at freehouse to have the best combo.

This is basically a naan flatbread sandwich with grilled cheese which is also a vegan item on the menu. Just by looking at those cheese oozing out was shiok enough. Nothing special but it's something healthy and comforting 》$15

While the name says sambal fries, it actually feels like black pepper fries instead. The sambal were used on the quail eggs only hence the overall dish isn't that spicy. Heard that it used to be too spicy from feedback hence they decided to tweak it. I was hoping to get sambal coated fries but this was not that bad after all... just expectation vs reality 》$15

The must try’s in my opinion thus far are the nasi goreng, biryani and Maggie/mee hoon goreng! The wokhei on all the fried dishes were great! And the rice grains in the rice dishes were nicely separated and not clumpy! Though the chicken was slightly dry, the rice made up for it! I loved how the biryani rice itself was super spice-y and flavourful! I didn’t even need to douse my plate in curry!

Juicy beef, bacon onion jam, cheese, dill pickle mayo 》$24

Chicken Tikka Taco / Kerala Beef Taco / Ma’s Fish Taco 》2 for $13 / 3 for $15

Taco Mantra has been moving around bazaars and pop-up events before they decided to takeover the kitchen at Freehouse.

I love their Ma's fish taco that comes with flaky fish fillet covered with masala and tomato salsa. The fish was well seasoned and crunchy. Something nice to be accompanied with beer and friends over tacos.

As a dessert that was recommended on the menu, this was pretty disappointing, albeit unique. From Wikipedia, the dessert originates from Egypt and literally means 'Ali's Mother'. Typically, pastry is divided into pieces and blended with pistachios, coconut flakes, raisins and plenty of sugar. Milk, sometimes with cream, is then poured over the mixture and may be sprinkled in cinnamon. While it can be served either hot or cold, the variation at Le Rida's was hot. In essence, it contained filo pastry mixed with a variety of nuts and pomegranate seeds all of which are then soaked in a cloyingly sweet milk mixture. It reminded me of a watered-down version of Bircher Muesli with less texture and a whole lot more sugar. As all the ingredients were soaked in the milk mixture, the filo pastry became soggy which was unfortunate, especially when compared to its firm and crumbly counterpart found in the Baklava. The nuts still provided that crunchy texture I was craving for but overall, 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗲𝗻𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝘄𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝗺𝗶𝗹𝗸 𝗺𝗶𝘅𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗲𝘄 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘁 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗺𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗼𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗱𝗶𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗳𝗲𝗹𝘁 '𝗵𝗲𝗮𝘁𝘆' 𝗮𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗺𝘆 𝗳𝗶𝗿𝘀𝘁 𝗳𝗲𝘄 𝗺𝗼𝘂𝘁𝗵𝗳𝘂𝗹𝘀. In fact, I required 3 more glasses of water to finish it up. While it is still a unique dish that I was thankful to try, I will definitely not order it again.

Coming in 3 separate portions of filo pastry, the dessert immediately appealed to the penny-pinching, economical side of me given its price. Not only were the portions generous, the flavours were well-balanced as well. The layers of filo pastry were well-soaked in a sweet syrup which complemented the intense nutty notes you get with every bite. Needless to say, generous amounts of nuts were given between the layers of pastry. While it's hard to eat without getting the entire table (and floor) in a mess, it was certainly a great way to end off our meal. After a few miserable attempts at trying to be civilised, my tummy got the better of me and I barbarically devoured it whole as soon as it could fit into my mouth. For the immense pleasure experienced, especially after having a savoury healthy (If ordering Mediterranean) meal, it was 𝘁𝗼𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝘁.
Taste: 8.5/10

3 charcoal grilled lamb chops were plated beautifully at the center of the plate, with a small mound of fragrant saffron basmati rice at the side. Sampling the lamb chops first, I was glad at how easy it was to cut into it. As I subsequently sunk my teeth into it, it was expectedly moist and tender.  Hardly gamey to start with, as it was also imbued with a smoky charred flavour, most of its gaminess was masked. While it is still discernible, it is arguably sufficiently palatable for all, as long as you're not allergic to lamb. The rice was delicious in its own right. Topped with fruity bits of pomegranate which bursts as you bite into them and earthy notes of cashew nuts, I was happy eating the rice on its own, appreciating its medley of flavours. It leaned more towards the healthier side in that it was not oily but dry. Nevertheless, having it together with the lamb or pomegranate will help to balance its lack of moisture. While some may find the portion of rice slightly small given its price, you're 𝗱𝗲𝗳𝗶𝗻𝗶𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗽𝗮𝘆𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝗲𝗮𝘁.
Taste: 8.5/10 (One of the better lamb chops I've had for sure)

Sometimes the simple things in life are best – a cold pint, and this garguantan double cheese burger come to mind. Stacked high with thicc beef patties oozing melted cheese, lashes of pickle mayo and bacon onion jam, all sandwiched between perfectly grilled and buttered fluffy buns, this is one burger that mandates a man date.

Thanks @burpple for the invite and @tacomantra for the hospitality!

Taste: 3.5/5
