Featuring Black Tap, Summer Hill

After many months, we decided to make our way down to Black Tap to give their famous burgers and milkshakes a try and it was sadly, quite a let down.

The Lamb Burger ($24)
The lamb burger lacked a punch that I normally look forward to in a lamb burger. Keep it mind that dilute to my dietary restrictions, my food tend to be very low salt and even I felt this burger was a bit..... muted.
I didn’t get the gaminess of the lamb, and the use of a stronger cheese may have benefited the burger more.
The pickles too were a bit of a disappointment. I expected something punchy to really opens up my tastebuds but it just all felt a bit too mellow.
The fries were fried well but I do believe they pre-salt them before frying so the salt runs right through the fries, causing it to lose that slight sweet potato taste.

Oreo Cookie and Cream Milkshake ($12)
The milkshake on the other hand was really good. We decided not to go with the over-the-top Crazy Shakes and go with something a bit more classic and it didn’t disappoint. It was rich, luscious, thick (a bit too thick for the straw they provided) and everything a good milkshake is meant to be. At $12.00 a pop, it is a bit on the pricey side but I suppose if a certain fast food joint can sell theirs at $3.00, than this would be worth every penny.

Overall, I do think there are much better burger joints out there but if you want a good hearty shake than Black Tap is probably the place to be.

Hidden away sunset way is one our our favourite bistros in Singapore, Summer Hill. Opened by Chefs Anthony Yeoh and Christopher Soh, formally of the now defunct Cocotte Restaurant at Wandurlust Hotel, Summer Hill continues to focus on what they were always known for, Home-style and comforting dishes.

Don’t expect a large menu as Summer Hill focuses on a few few specialities that are focused on the ingredients and done exceptionally well!
One of my favorites is the Fried Veal Chop. It’s tender, juicy and if you’re a veal lover than this is an absolutely must have.
However, our favourite thing to come for is their Fried Chicken Day!
Every few months, Summer Hill will have fried chicken day and they serve one of THE BEST fried chicken around! The skin is crispy, with a slightly sweet twang that comes from the brown butter herbs, honey and lemon. The herbs adds wonderful earthy balance to the dish and the buttermilk definitely helps make the chicken extra tender and juicy.

And no worries, Summer Hill also offers some fantastic salads like the Creamy Ricotta and Marinated Tomato Salad that helps add a bit of acidity to the meal.

So if you’re looking for somewhere casual with cozy alfresco dining and some really good food, head down to Summer Hill!
