.lOne of the most underwhelming makis, in terms of taste, aesthetic and execution. The makis literally fell apart when being held up. ☹️ for a better value, I would always return to my trusty sushi bar to get my aburi salmon maki fix!

Might have had too high expectations for this, found it slightly lacking that burst of umami flavor..

Too rich for my palate, missing the smokiness from the grilled aubergines. Expectations were set high with the word burnt

Redeeming factor was the beautiful avocado purée to save the slightly dry crab cakes.

Dry pork slices. Tough and lack of seasoning and flavor. The wheat berries were dry and did not compliment the pork at all. Not impressed at all.

Pity that the char was nailed to perfection but the cauliflower steak was so steak and lacking a good mash or sauce and some textures like pomegranate or roasted nuts to just bring the whole dish together. Ah Well. Perhaps this place is better for the drinks and the kind of bar food you have no expectations for like fries

I can think of many places where I can get a cheaper burger for greater satisfaction. Patty was slightly overdone, didn’t help that the sauce was not great. Very ordinary, sadly nothing like the real deal like those from pasar malam

High price point, underwhelming flavors. Octopus sliced so thinly you don’t even get to enjoy its texture. Missing an element of tartness. Looks pretty but really leaves a lot to be desired

It was between this or the pan roasted cauliflower, which definitely has a higher potential. This dish is definitely forgettable. Order only if you really need a vegetable dish.

Again, lacking in flavor for the sauce and overall cohesiveness of the dish. Saving grace is the generous amount of duck and I love pappardelle! Sigh, hate to feel like a pasta snob, but I can hardly find good pastas in non Italian joints. 😓

Not something I’ll recommend for sure. Quite a regular forgettable pasta dish. On a better note, they are generous with the ingredients and the combination of prawn and chorizo definitely works. However, I find the overall dish to be in dire lack of flavor and the sauce keeps “slipping off” like it is a separate element and not melded with the pasta. Order only if you have an intense pasta craving you have to satisfy.

Always counting down to the next meal 😋
