I liked the crisp coating of batter. The batter on bf's fried fish was nicer (like vietnamese netting fried spring roll). Fish itself is average, like what u get at normal western stalls. the seasonal veg was nice, but a bit too oily. Overall decent, we came bc we realised we haven’t eaten it in like 10 years. But I think it was nicer last time. It’s not not nice, but I won’t crave for this.

corn chips, roasted salsa, pecorino

It was good, the corn chips were thin and crisp, tasted quite fresh (not sure if they fry it themselves??)

The spinach and artichoke dip was earthy, coupled with the pecorino which was a bit stinky (in a good way) and cheesy. Each time I eat artichokes I don’t rly get the hype lol it tastes like bamboo shoots to me. I liked the spinach part nonetheless. My friend thought it didn’t rly pair well with the chips and I see where he’s coming from but I was okay! The roasted salsa was delicious, it was hearty and well-balanced, those went really well with the chips.

We had 5 pax and I think it was a good size for us.

Artisan cheese and charcuterie handmade dip/s, gourmet crackers, house-roasted nuts, premium chocolate, fruit, olives, pickles, crudités, vine tomatoes, quince paste and herbs/edible flowers, pork deli meat.

1 dip, 3 cheeses 3 meats - website says it feeds 3-4 pax! 3 of us *almost* managed to finish it, nibbling here and there towards the end of our 3-4 hour picnic. We had this + a box of aburi sushi from donki for dinner. Was pretty nice, everything was fresh / crunchy as it is supposed to be! Eat the crackers first as they became soggy at the end of the night.

red sauce, roasted vine tomatoes, fresh basil, burrata, goat milk feta

This pizza was gooood. I prioritise a crunch in my pizzas so this definitely delivered - crust was so crunchy (no fluffy/softness) but yet not dry. It’s basically fried bread. Toppings were good too. The goat milk feta was funky so it overpowered the burrata, I would rather not have any burrata bc I could barely taste it, until I picked it out and tasted it separately. The fresh basil was placed on after the pizza came out of the oven (unlike chooby’s), so it was not burnt and still had that fresh herby taste.

The roasted vine tomatoes turned out to be my fav topping. They were piping hot (too hot to bite into), so we squished it with a fork and it burst, releasing all that beautiful, sweet natural goodness.

We ordered the blue label chicken wings and it came with a blue cheese ranch that was sufficiently funky but not too stinky, and went super well with the crust. No crusts left behind!!

This was sooo yummy. The thin coating of batter on the whitebait was perfectly crisp and light. Well-seasoned and great with the cold, refreshing tzatziki that was slightly sour, with shreds of cucumber that added some crunch. Addictive and a great snack to munch on while waiting for the pizzas!

Mushroom soup was average, it was chunky with chopped mushrooms, but tasted a bit starchy and lumpy? I know I can’t expect the same standard as what you would find at an Italian/European restaurant, but I was still kinda disappointed. But A+ for it tasting quite healthy and natural. The sandwich was fine, the smoked salmon wasn’t too salty and the roll tasted decent, there were tomato slices and sprouts too.

Not bad! The beer battered haddock had a super crunchy batter, fish was meaty and p moist. The coated thick cut chips were surprisingly good, I usually don’t prefer thick cut chips as they tend to be soggy but this wasn’t, it’s thick but flat and has a nice crisp to it! The tartar sauce could be tangier, it didn’t make much of an impact. The mushy peas are quite strongly pea, but it tasted better the more of it I had. Texture was a mix of mash + pea bits so it was quite nice, like a haphazardly mashed avo! It’s nice but on the pricier side. If you want to share a large, do take note there is a min order of 1 food item person, so that’s why we got this + onion rights. The onion rings weren’t great, was crisp and onions were decent too but somehow it was q average.

I know I’m saying this for all of the proteins but this was also really soft and tender, the cook in it was well executed. The preserved lemon and tomato concasse added a fresh element to the dish, and the snap peas were nicely blanched too. The mash potato was alright but I prefer a lighter and more buttery one.

The pork belly wasn’t too fatty but still really soft and tender even at the lean parts, with a crisp skin on top. I loved the natural sweetness that the poached pear & endive fennel salad brought. The bulldog vinegar jus was sticky and strong and I liked it on its own, but I thought it came on a bit too strong when paired with the pork. This dish also came with chestnut barley, which was alright but I wasn’t too keen on - maybe a smokier chestnut flavour would help!

Aggs enjoyed this duck leg confit a lot! It was very tender and not at all gamey, very palatable and the pickled mustard jus added extra flavour to the dish. Was quite a substantial portion of duck! I particularly liked the orange carrot mousse, which was naturally sweet and not very orangey/citrusy, which went well with the duck.

Beef was tender, it went well with the roasted root vegetables and red wine jus. I thought the charred onion was a nice touch. The potato mousseline was a bit too starchy, would have preferred it to be lighter and silkier!
