Pork Cheek Quesadilla

$17.00 · 10 Reviews

In light of the source of my eternal torment, namely the final paper on the devious mechanisms of Business Law, denial has bestowed unto me safe passage in writing to distract myself from the now. The only true shred of knowledge that I can confidently proclaim would be that it is illegal to commit a crime.

May it please the court, my name is @thintbites and I am counsel for all things culinary in nature. The defendant, W39 Bistro & Bakery has, in retrospect, engaged in criminal behaviour that is unlawful in the eyes of the common law: serving disappointing food. It was an implied term that the dishes that the plaintiffs had ordered was going to be parts of a delectable whole. In accordance with Section 14.2A in the Sales of Goods Act which states that the “goods are of satisfactory quality if they meet the standard that a reasonable person would regard as satisfactory, taking account of any description of the goods, the price (if relevant) and all the other relevant circumstances”, the defendant had failed to deliver as promised, serving up dishes that were imbalanced in flavours, minimal in portion and lacking in any redeeming factors whatsoever.

The Chef’s Special Assam Seabass and Fragrant Rice ($22) was unfortunately, anything but special. The assam gravy was simply too heavy and imbalanced, and for its price, was not of satisfactory quality. The Chicken Roulade ($22) had a glimmer of hope; in that it was a good attempt at a correct concept, but lacked the refinement and balance of a good dish. It was a roller coaster of flavours, but rather the kind of roller coaster that makes you dizzy and nauseous, leaving you lying on the cold hard ground. The only promising dish of the night was the Pork Cheek Quesadilla ($20), with meltingly tender pulled pork cheek in tortilla wraps. The Starter Platter ($32) will allow one to select from any four of their unimaginative starters, and ironically had to be the least value-for-money in terms of the anticipated quality of it all with bland fries, run-of-the-mill mozzarella sticks and sautéed mushrooms that were simply a tired attempt at a country classic.

With that, I rest my case. Thank you your honour.

The Pork Cheek Quesadilla was really delicious and flavorful and the nachos that came with it was crunchy and matched well with the Quesadilla. Even though it’s $20, I think the price was justified by the taste.

The smoked salmon was also really good and it felt like it melted in my mouth. It went well with the bread, but the bread could be a little crunchier.

Overall, the food is priced reasonably and it is what is expected for a cafe. The food is really good and we’ll visit again if we’re in the area.

frequent this cafe as it is friendly to dogs and the staff are extremely welcoming. the charcoal bun (the bottom one in particular) however was too chewy and doughy, making it difficult to cut and may also be preferential, but i was hoping for a more crispy bun.

This cheerful cafe is a hidden gem for dog owners living in the west, especially if you enjoy taking your dogs for a walk in nearby West Coast Park. While dogs are not allowed indoors, the alfresco seats are comfortable and perfect for a meal with the family, fur babies included. There's usually a jar of complimentary dog treats on the counter that you can reach into to calm restless pets. As for food, Burpple Tastemaker Acamas Teo loves the Pork Cheek Quesadilla ($17), which sees moist, juicy and fatty shredded pork cheek encased in tortilla wraps, served with corn chips and salsa. The Sake Mussels with Garlic Bread ($12) are also great if you fancy a light meal. Consider pairing it with the intriguing Kimchi Cocktail ($15), which Burpple Tastemaker Justin Teo describes to be tart, spicy, sweet AND savoury.

Totally can see myself ordering this again. Before an invitation from @justinfoodprints , I didn't even know of it's existence. Even though I've lived in the West for my entire life, this place pass by unnoticed. Truly, a hidden gem (the term is somewhat overused but is place is really an authentic one) indeed. Thank you @w39bistro for hosting. 🖖🏻

My favourite part of the pork other than the belly, this jowl is tender while having some fats lining the interior, so I really love it. Or, if you love the texture of these pork cheeks as much as me, you could order the pork cheek quest Dillard which was my favorites that evening!

Braised pork cheek gruyere panini. The pork cheeks were tender and rather flavorful, and the meat balanced well with the crusty panini. I wouldn't mind if the greens can be replaced with chips or mashed potatoes.
