Crispy Lamb Short Ribs

$21.00 · 7 Reviews

Friday’s Burpple Eatup held at The Disgruntled Chef, introduces their new and revamped A La Carte Menu, which also marks my first visit to Dempsey Hill. Surrounded by greenery, it is definitely not easy to travel to Dempsey via public transportation but this food haven is worth the trouble.

Loving the small plate-big plate concept, I was really impressed by the seemingly unassuming Crispy Lamb Shortribs ($21) off TDC’s well-loved Classic small plates section. Served with a side of spiced pumpkin puree and mint yoghurt, you will first be greeted with the taste of cumin and a slight spicy kick. You will also get a bit of the gaminess but the meat itself was nicely crisp on the outside, yet surprisingly succulent and moist on the inside. I felt that it tasted great just by itself as I didn’t care much for the dip which will most probably mask the mild gamy taste well. The dish just left me craving for more and I was able to polish the short ribs effortlessly.

Thank you @Burpple for extending the invitation and @TheDisgruntledChef for hosting us!

I half expected this to be dry and tough but @thedisgruntledchef proved me wrong! Crisp on the surface but oh so tender on the inside. 😍

Crusted in a spice mix and fried, it made sure the lamb didn't taste gamey at all and the meat pulled off with ease. I think I let out an audible moan as I hit that fatty part as well... Oh sooo good 🙊

This was surprisingly delish! Talk about the right balance of texture and flavours - Crispy without any greasiness, so tender that it practically melts in the mouth and the complementing spiced pumpkin purée dip was good enough to distract me from its mild gaminess. Never a fan of lamb, always apprehensive but this was a pretty damn good starter of the night.

Lamb has never been the first choice of meat for me, but I found this pretty acceptable that I went for two. Sure, the gamey taste that most finds intimidating is still around, but I like how mild the gaminess was for its just a two-second process from the moment you place it in your mouth. Look past the two seconds, and the lamb is immensely tender as it melts in the mouth amidst the crisp exterior that seems to kill off the gaminess before it gets too much — you would find that it's possible not to use a fork and knife as the meat comes off the bone cleanly even if you use your hands. Something that isn't really in my comfort zone, but definitely worked well with me!

These tasty lamb shortribs used to be served on their own as a starter, but now they are served atop a bed of couscous (which I didn't take a liking to) as main course. Abit less tender and less fatty than the previous times I had them, but still as delicious, especially when smeared with the subtly mint-y yogurt sauce.
