The pancake here was honestly more fluffy and airy than some that I’ve tried in Japan. As it was not overly eggy, I would have been more than happy eating this piece of cloud on its own. However, this stack of soft pillowy goodness, is not one to rest on its laurels. Smothering itself with fresh vanilla whipped cream that was unbelievably airier than itself, it more than sufficiently ensured that it was on a whole other league of desserts. Undeniably, this was the best thing that day and would make for a great dessert, tea break or… heck, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Your stomach will definitely not protest, at least not immediately. 🙂
For those in a hurry, do note that there’s a 25min waiting time though.

Another interesting dish that seemed to be a fusion between Korean pancakes and the American cornbread. Relative to the other dishes, it tasted more flat with its interior being dense and chewy. It would have been great if its exterior was more crisp.

A cut from the head of the pig’s cheek, pork jowl is typically made into bacon through smoking and curing. The ones done here though seemed to be cooked as it is and as a cut of meat not found in most other restaurants, it may take awhile to get used to its more rubbery and chewy texture. The chili paste provided at the side though was both fresh and aromatic.

Paired with the spread of dishes that night, I had one of their specialty cocktails. Containing Rum, Bailey's and loads of Milo, this was chocolatey, decadent and provided much needed sweetness in between the savoury dishes. It tasted just like your traditional Milo Dinosaur but much more 'gao' (thick), creamy (Likely due to the Bailey's) and of course, alcoholic. The roasted marshmallow atop was hard and chewy when I finally ate it at the end. However, it still had that distinct caramelised taste reminiscent of a well roasted marshmallow. Hence, it may perhaps taste much better if you eat it soon after it's served. While Le Coq may not offer any desserts, this is definitely a worthy substitute.

All in all, I had a fantastic dining experience filled with great food and company. Contrary to some google reviews, the ambience that day was quiet enough for conversation. However, this may partly be due to the current viral outbreak, leaving the restaurant surprisingly vacant. My tastebuds were blown away consistently throughout the meal with the top dishes going to the Hot Uni Spaghetti ($22++), Beef Crispy Rice ($28++), Dry Laksa ($16++) and signature Roast Chicken ($16++). Yes, there are this many top dishes and I will more than gladly, devour all of them if given the chance.

Placed on a shallow hotplate, this dish was prepared to resemble the charred crispy rice bits found along the walls of a Claypot Rice. While the rice was enjoyable on its own, the slab of beef laying discreetly at one side was beautifully marbled and immensely satisfying as well. As the beef was thinly sliced, it had that melt-in-your-mouth texture. However, still being significantly thicker than the ones found in hotpot dishes, it provided a strong beefy flavour and was devoured quickly. I'm still not entirely sure about the contents of the yellow sauce atop the beef as it was thicker than melted butter and wasn't all that buttery to begin with. The brown bits though were likely fried garlic bits that provided even more crunch to the dish. Unsurprisingly, this would also be another must-try dish.

On that day, the Hot Uni Spaghetti was particularly spectacular. Each strand of spaghetti was evenly coated with their rich creamy Uni-infused sauce and topped off with extra Uni for good measure. Relative to the Cold Uni Somen, it tasted richer and more robust and since you can never have too much Uni, I'll definitely recommend the hot version. If not for the need to share, I would have gladly devoured all of it.

To start, the huge prawns atop the pasta were plump, moist, fresh and had no rubbery texture. Dig beneath it and you'll find an ordinary looking pasta, reminiscent of Aglio Olio. In other words, the jackpot. In a world which advocates substance over looks, this pasta must be the epitome of such an ideal. As before, the sauce and spices added into the mix clung on to the noodles really well. Loaded with the taste of Laksa leaves, the pasta gave an explosion of flavours. The closest description to it would perhaps be to boil the best bowl of traditional Laksa you can find down to a nice thick reduction before tossing the pasta in it. Closing my eyes for the next bite, it was honestly difficult to taste the difference between it and the more traditional varieties.

Thanks to Burpple once again for the Eat-up! :)
