ATAS ADVENTURES 🍴🥂🤭

Self-explanatory. This list documents all the times I’ve dipped my toes in the fine dining/gastronomy sphere. Go easy though on any error though, I don’t usually have this sort of food! 😂

[Available on Burpple Beyond] I really don’t see myself spending over $130 on two truffled lobster rolls under normal circumstances. But thanks to Burpple Beyond and a friend who had also been wanting to celebrate with a feast, I convinced myself to go Pince & Pints’ Truffled Lobster Roll. 🤧🙏🏼

Now if you’re wondering what makes this that pricey, it’s really none other than the stuff that goes into it - chunks and chunks of lobster meat, truffled caviar, black truffle shavings and truffle butter sauce. It’s kind of what you’d expect on the third option in every Worth It by Buzzfeed episode. 🤣

Admittedly, the flavour of the truffle shavings and caviar didn’t shine as brightly as I’d hoped for, but man oh man…the truffle butter made up for it. It dominated every component of the dish, unifying them and directing them to unleash a force of flavor. It was insane, for a lack of better description. 🙌🏼

And the bread was phenomenal! My friend shared his observation which was pretty insightful - he said that the bread is unique in the sense that it goes down the esophagus very easily, unlike regular bread which is coarse or hard, which meant some resistance when swallowing. And it’s carved deep inside, which housed a gobsmack of lobster chunks.

Overall, I’d say it’s worth the price on the 1-for-1 deal. if you have Burpple Beyond and are in the mood to treat yourself, really - dive in for this. (8/10)

[Invited] Can I consider my lunch appointment at Lewin Terrace my first foray into fine dining? 👀 I had their 3-course lunch set ($58), and chose this as the starter. And holy moley, it was so well-made! I haven’t had scallops that were THAT easy to cut.

They soaked up the flavour of the dried lime sauce that carried a pleasant tingle of tartness. There were also pieces of shiitake mushroom that supplemented the flavours with its characteristic umami notes. 🤤

For a mesh of so many flavours though, the most impressive part was how beautifully restrained and modestly tasty the result was.
