I was a tad apprehensive and skeptical of the food served at Blisshouse originally. The extensive ethereal, fairytale theme and design of the restaurant made me feel like they were trying to compensate for subpar food with a good aesthetic.

I was completely wrong. The squid ink risotto is fragrant and buttery, the grains used were of a good texture and consistency. The overall dish held together nicely without running or splitting, and the subtle salty flavour of squid ink came through, despite the heavy butter taste.

However, the calamari that topped the dish was your average, run of the mill calamari you can get anywhere. Not good, not bad, just.. okay.
