Their kombu Butter was not disappointing at all, oh the sweet and umami-ness of it and it paired very well with their Sourdough which I love the texture (not overly crunchy) but could do with alittle more sourness. I definitely wouldn't mind starting my day with a plate of this simple delights 🤤
Some hits and misses at The Masses, but decent enough, with the same concept of restaurant-quality food at relatively more affordable prices.
For starters, go for The Egg ($9), smooth steamed egg topped with a generous mountain of ikura, tobiko and homemade potato chips - so keep the photo-taking to a minimal or the chips turn soggy. I liked how it was a party of textures and flavours with that salty burst. Available in hot or cold version.
Having read reviews and seen that impressive pasta twirl topped generously with caviar and crabmeat we knew we had to try it. Decent, but flavours of the sauce and crabmeat with the cold angel hair pasta was light and didn't quite stand out.
For mains, we wanted a little land, sea, air whatever so Fish & Chips ($14.90) it was - and well, skip it - it was sadly bland, flakey, crabmeat gremolata did little to help + chips tasted like they were the frozen kind. Hoping it's just a bad day but anyhoo, go instead for our unanimous favourite, the Duroc Pork Loin ($15)! Incredibly tender, juicy; a good proportion of lean meat and fattiness, creamy scrambled egg with a subtle hint of truffle aroma, served with chicharron (wasn't a fan of it here) plum, and Brussel sprouts.
Cos' if it ain't broke don't fix it; for a fail-proof tried-and-tested option, get the duck leg confit ($12.90). Like Saveur's with crisp skin and tender flesh, but with croquette instead of that lovely mash. Served with candied orange and foie gras sauce.
It comes topped with full of ikura and tobiko that provides a burst of flavours, while the homemade potato chips were slightly crispy and pretty pleasant to have, not turning soggy easily.
The Masses take on contemporary happy food.
Fresh clams cooked in chicken soup to give an additional hint of seafood freshness in the luscious broth.
Packed with collagen and would probably makes my skin goes smoother.
I can easily have a few of these on my own!

(Yes it's shaved macadamia nuts, not cheese taste it & one will know why) 😋
Pair it with the given veg that's sprinkled with cranberry powder for the umami "OMG that's good?! Wait what?! Raw Mutton with hints of Foie Gras?!" Yes, calm down fam. 🏵
ACAMASTIPS💮: Out of all the courses, this stood out to me. It doesn't have the Mutton smell that many feared & it's simply sublime. 🖖🏻
This bowl was so tasty and a big part had got to do with the salad dressing. I devoured the entire bowl and it was gone in minutes!
The newly opened @dear.nesuto along Tras Street offers many many gorgeous pastries that me and @the_xw took a long while to decide what to get.
Pretty in pink would be the Blush Berry ($9) - interesting dessert to have as it feels like an egg with a pink white chocolate shell with wobbly Greek yoghurt mousse within! Encased within was raspberry compote and a vanilla rice puff giving it a nice texture. Their desserts were light yet well balanced! This is well paired with Dong Ding (Oolong base Tea) recommended in their menu.
Was recommended to try this by the lady at the self-service ticket order machine. They blowtorch the pork cubes and assemble the dish in front of you. Whilst the onion sauce was something I enjoyed (but just because I love onions), it was honestly not fantastic. 😑
