Weekend Hangouts

What’s a weekend without good food and lovely people?

The Hamachi Don had a piquant sauce which was pleasant to me. The sashimi has a high fat content which gives it a creamy, buttery texture. The Japanese rice was slightly warm but very fluffy, and had the distinctive sweet taste for short grain rice.

Ingredients: Feta, two poached eggs, roasted tomatoes, dill, cashew nut dukkah, rye sourdough toast

I love how perfectly poached the eggs were, with golden liquid oozing out of the thin film of white when I prodded a little at the wobbly semicircles using my fork. The cashew nut dukkah was minimal and tasted light to me. My taste buds were not exquisite enough to tell me what the cashew dukkah really tasted like. The highlight was of course the avocados — they were creamy and fresh, atop a slightly tangy, soft bed of sourdough bread. Some may be averse to the taste of avocados because they taste like health. But as for me, I’m a fan.

I think the 50% on savoury brunch items the Burpple app is great. No GST & service charge here, making most brunch items less than $10. The portions are also humongous. The only gripe is that there’s always a queue on weekends.

The Fry-up came with two-fried eggs, chorizo, sautéed mushrooms, baked beans, fried potatoes, home-cured bacon and buttered toast, which were beautifully laid out on an aesthetically pleasing plate. The potatoes were coated in a savoury and slightly spicy sauce.

The Eggs ben-jamin came with wilted spinach, bacon onion jam, béarnaise (sauce made of clarified butter emulsified in egg yolks and white vinegar sauce), home-cured bacon and English muffins. The poached eggs were beautifully done with sublime yellow yolk oozing out when slightly torn apart. The English muffins were soaked in a béarnaise sauce (not hollandaise sauce, but just as delicious). I was pretty impressed with this dish.

Steak with 2 sunny side-ups, with house-made entrecôte sauce. I got medium but I thought it was slightly tough. I should have opted for medium rare. I found the portion very sufficient, and I was so pleasantly surprised to find that the egg yolks were so runny!

The ambience of the bistro was lovely too - quiet and romantic for a date and cosy enough for intimate gatherings with close friends.

The famous L’Entrecôte steak, with their legendary secret sauce generously poured over tender sliced steak. Accompanied with golden French fries and green salad with walnuts. Comes with complimentary wine and bread too!

The standard fish and chips that came with buttered red tilapia fillet and fries. I felt that the ratio of flour to fish was pretty nice, and the fish tasted quite fresh too!

The grilled salmon fillet was well-cooked and tender. There’s an option of butter rice or coconut rice, but by default the dish came with butter rice.

Grilled rib-eye steak atop a bed of butter rice or coconut rice (butter rice by default) and a zest of lime. I found the beef a bit over-seasoned for my liking but it was a rather hearty meal.

House granola, tea poached pears, honey Greek yogurt plated beautifully in a white ceramic bowl. I found the granola a bit sweet for my liking but it was interesting as there were desiccated browned coconut in the granola! I’m not a fan of fruits but the tea poached pears were yummy. Albeit sweet, the poached pears were refreshing to the palate. It’s supposedly a healthy breakfast but I found it quite loaded on sugars.

This makes for a sinfully delightful treat considering that there is a layer of sweet and luscious cream in between each layer. I love how the cream melts in my mouth.
