Set up by Chef Dylan Ong, #themasses keeps to the similar mission of offering quality French food at a highly affordable price, and after trying it today, it has entered my list of favorite restaurants. The #duckconfit is even better than what saveur used to have with a perfectly crisp skin & tender duck meat uniquely paired with flat noodles with strong wok hei flavour. Dylan’s memories was his creative take on scissors curry rice with a delicious sweet-spicy bacon jam providing the “curry” aroma, onsen egg & iberico pork chop. All the components went so well together but we would have preferred that the pork chop had more juicy meatness than the current overly crispness (maybe more like pork tonkotsu than fried pork chop). As a #matchaya fan, I added on matchaya milk tea (+$2) & the hojicha cream tart (+$3). No regrets as the dessert was a wow with the perfect balance of sweet-buttery roasted tea tart & salted milk ice cream. The C&C&C&C starter (+$6) was a yummy mix of caviar, crabmeat, clams & chorizo with angel hair pasta doused in lobster bisque. It was a surprisingly big portion for a starter and would highly recommend it for seafood lovers.

Live eel is cut and grilled right before one's eyes (not for the weak to watch), making every piece of unagi heavenly goodness. A mix of tender soft flesh with crispy char-grilled skin, the unagi here is a notch above anything we've tried. The dish we ordered allowed us to sample unagi in 3 ways (original, dried & soup) & each version was uniquely enjoyable. We esp liked the dried pairing of unagi with fresh wasabi, seaweed & spring onions as they added texture and enhanced the unagi flavour.
⚠️ Best time to go would be before 5.35pm to make the first seating when it opens at 6pm. I arrived at 5.20pm and was the first person in the queue. Do also prepare umbrella/ hats & water in case of sunny hot weather as there is minimal shade in the queue

🍴The freshly baked pretzel was still warm when served and was tasty by itself + crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside. The bottarga cream made from cured fish roe was absolutely yummy and when paired together, along with olive oil, it was a beautiful combination of flavours that left us wanting more (& hence ordering a second portion)

Part of the $38++ set lunch and it was well worth the additional $15. Juicy on the inside with a crisp crust 👍🏻. The accompanying sauce was also really good (no idea what it's made of) and the fresh fries are a cute # ⭐️ 4/5 ⭐️

🍴Fresh & generous servings of sashimi that are seasoned well. Value-for-money set that comes with soup & salad found in the CBD ⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️
⚠️ Always crowded on weekdays with the work crowd but empty on the weekends

So good I could keep eating more - the tender & flavorful beef went well with the pickles, onions & sourdough bread to make each bite delicious 😋 ⭐️ 4.5/5 ⭐️

Although really yummy with a good citrus flavour, paying $12 for 3 long pieces of vegetables seems too much to me 😅 ⭐️ 3/5 ⭐️
