I’m a sucker for heavy flavours, so when the choice came for White Wine or Chorizo and Craft Beer, you know what I picked.

The seemingly bottomless pot was filled with mussels, all decently fat and juicy, steeped in a super kao, finger lickin’ craft beer and chorizo sauce. Salty with a bubbly, zesty zing, it’s heavenly when sopped up with the side of bread. Or if you’re hardcore like me and mum, on its own (eep!). This also comes peppered with thick-cut chorizo, which while slightly dry (all its moisture gone to the gravy) still pack bursts of umami flavour.

Get ready to squeeze real tight if you’re a party of 6, because they only gave us 2 tables and we almost didn’t have enough space for our food!! Requested for a 3 table seat (as normal restaurants would accommodate), but was told that it was not available despite sitting near 3 tables that were clearly unoccupied and remained so throughout us dining there.

It’s quite hard to think about what you’re eating when there’s no space, but overall I felt the food was extremely overrated. While the mussels were pleasantly seasoned, some of them were remarkably small and also the mussels itself were not very sweet. Anyhow, we preferred the beer mussels over the white wine one - a lot more flavourful! I enjoyed the capellini with Sakura ebi, although the prawns were overcooked. The saffron risotto however, I couldn’t touch at all because it sort of tasted like paint/plastic. Searched about it because I thought it may be a taste preference, and indeed a lot of people think it tastes like that so I guess it’s not just my tongue. In any case, the risotto was poorly cooked - overcooked and tasted like porridge. The bread was not bad though- on the denser side, but definitely decent. Wouldn’t say it’s particularly worth the trip down though.

Being pricy and well reputed, I expected much more from this place and won’t be patronising it again. (Not even worth it with the 1 for 1! But if you go, stick with the beer mussels and aglio olio capellini. And probably go as a party of 2 so you have actual space to breathe!!)

Pictured here is the Seafood Saffron Risotto ($28) which I really loved. It had a lighter and more refreshing consistency, and that flavourful sauce came with a strong taste of saffron. The mussels are also fresh and soft.
🔸
And you must not skip their breads. From their woodfire ovens, they conjure up awesome, freshly baked breads.. and that also came in the form of scones ($7) served with jam (or you could opt for orange marmalade) and clotted cream. Be greeted by the wafting smell of butter, before enjoying the scones with a nice crisp wood scented crust and a dense but soft crumb on the inside. I think it's as good as it gets.
🔸
To make things even better, my Saffron Risotto was free with my purchase of the Scottish Blue Mussels ($30). This is because there are 1 for 1 discounts here with #BurppleBeyond by @Burpple, which is a program where you can get 1 for 1 deals at more than 100 partner cafes, restaurants and bars under the program.
