Always a comfort when the waitress asks for your preferred doneness. You might think that its a given; but well not at certain places.
Asked for medium rare and thankfully that was how it came. The accompanying mushrooms were juicy and flavourful. Bread was sadly really dry though 🙁

Not a bad selection for this price- you get half a roast chicken which is quite huge, and a heaping amount of fries, salad and coleslaw for your sides.

Not a fan of the garlic pepper cream sauce😅 Felt like the peppery-creamy balance was a little off, and the sauce was kind of watery and diluted.

This was the main course for the night, featuring a Duck Confit which was really tender and juicy that I fell in love with it from the very first bite. Fyi, I don't usually take duck meat very well! .

The duck is marinated with cumin powder, and red wine reduction is also used. I love how I could distinctly taste all the different components, yet all of it seemed to come together harmoniously☺️

The dish is also accompanied with Truffle Potato Foam, which had a delightfully light texture, along with an assortment of glazed vegetables.

I'll post more detailed reviews soon but I just really wanted to share this under-the-radar gem with everybody, because I just had such an amazing experience with them. .

This was an invited tasting on behalf of @singapore.eats , hosted by @fussyducksg thank you so much for such an amazing night! For those who are interested in knowing more, please don't hesitate to shoot me a DM because I really think y'all will enjoy the experience as much as I did 💕 I've attached the menu so slide ⬅️ for more deets!! P.S. I think their prices are really surprisingly affordable for the quality that you get😹😹😹

The flesh was delightfully pink and tender and there wasn't any unpleasant fishy stench. Shared this main between another friend and was so surprised when my knife just sliced through effortlessly. Trust me, you could eat this even if you were "bo gey" (no teeth 😂) The salmon also came atop a bed of squid ink pasta which were shaped like grains of rice (I believe its called orzo) which our waitress poured a pot of saffron broth over. It's a really refreshing change from the usual cream/tomato sauce/bases and I felt that it would particularly appeal to those who seek less heavy pasta dishes. The combination also kind of reminded me of the Japanese ochazuke!
Had decided to give this place a try without much expectation and thought but boy, the food here is really good and worth every cent you pay, especially with 1-for-1 using #burpplebeyond and #entertainerapp !😋 #burpple #burpplesg #whati8todaysg #salmon #guacamole #italianfood #modernfusion #orzo #squidinkpasta #pasta #whati8today #sgeat #eatmoresg #singaporefoodlisting #sgfoodblogger #sgfoodies #sgfood #sgfoodhunt #sgfoodhunter #sgfoodtrend #myfooddiary #sgfooddiary #sgcafe #sgcafefood #sgcafehopping #foodforfoodie #foodforfoodies #foodexplorers

Went for the 2-piece meal ($9.45) which also comes with a side of mashed potatoes and coleslaw, as well as some Sjora strawberry kiwi drink which tasted like some strawberry yoghurt drink (didn't really taste the kiwi though). The truffle smell didn't hit my nose unlike in the case for most truffle-containing dishes but the truffle taste was quite distinct actually. Loved the generous sprinkle of parmesan too, just that it could get a little overwhelmingly salty especially at the part where all the parmesan sprinkles are concentrated 😹

Not a bad portion for $18, but not of the best quality either! Pork belly wasn't as tender as I would have liked, was kind of dry and tough. But then again, this place is known more for their alcohol I guess, with an extensive drinks menu thats like twice or thrice the size of the food menu 😂 Theres the small little balls at the side which I don't really know what it is but tasted kind of like the skin?🤔

Found the cut of steak to be more on the fattier and chewier side though! Scrambled eggs were kind of lumpy and didn't have the silky smooth texture desired and it seems to me that they always over-season their eggs here with salt 😂

In fact, I was rather blown away by how good it tasted. For the price and quality, I think it is priced rather affordably too! The slab of duck was so thick and succulent and the mushrooms which came with it were really nice and creamy. The baby potatoes could have done with some seasoning though!

I love how no less attention is paid to the accompanying ingredients such as the broccolini which was soft yet not soggy, retaining a nice level of crunch. I did wish that they had been more generous with the romesco sauce which was actually quite good and the potatoes could use some seasoning!

1-for-1 using #entertainerapp and the food here is consistently of good standards I've completely used up all my vouchers here and even bought back the vouchers to use using the points I've accumulated 😂

A chef-recommended dish but failed to impress with a steak that was neither thick nor juicy enough for my liking😶 Could've done with more of the chimichurri sauce too. Fries were soggy and not crisp at all.

Steak came medium-rare as requested and was sufficiently tender, though there were some parts which still required a little more chew. While I found their signature golden sauce a tasty accompaniment to the beef, I felt that it wasn't anything too special.

The dish also comes with a mountainous side of addictive thin-cut fries which were lightly salted and not too oily. Heard that there's free flow fries but I would reckon the portion served is already more than sufficient for the average eater!

Overall, the food is not bad and the ambience of the restaurant is really nice, especially if you get those window seats overlooking the streets of Orchard! Used #burpplebeyond 1-for-1 and it was so worth it.

I have to say that while i usually have a stronger palate, this dish proved too salty for me. Perhaps they could go easier with the teriyaki sauce? 😅😅 Salmon was also cooked a little too well hence kind of dry instead of the moist and tender texture that i usually prefer😕 Well, at least the size of the salmon fillet wasn't all too stingy.
