Recently brought a good friend to try out Tonito, which is my absolute favourite restaurant at Jewel. This is my first time here since they have changed their menu and this Arroz Con Pato is supposedly the replacement dish for the previous Arroz Con Pollo which was my favourite. Instead of chicken on tomato rice, a slow-cooked duck leg is served on top of coriander rice garnished with piquillo peppers and salsa criolla on the side. The duck was so tender and the rice hearty and comforting, though I think I prefer the tomato + chicken combination better! The service here is still pretty good even during dinner rush.

Can we have more rice please??🤤

Also known as “Mexican Chicken Rice”, Arroz Con Polo is Mexican spiced rice with grilled chicken topped off with paquillo peppers and crisped up capers. Love, love loved the rice!! It had more of a risotto texture but it was so comforting and yummy we finished it before the chicken. The portion was huge too, makes for a hearty dish that can be shared.

The meal was made even lovelier with Burpple 1 for 1. #HappyBurpday

I could seriously slather this apple jam over anything. Tender slices of pork jowl were served over a bed of potatoes, topped off with slices of caramelised apple and apple cider jus. The acidity from the apple cider gravy balanced the sweetness from the jam beautifully.

A Peruvian fish stew that was recommended to us. The barramundi was oh so tender and the white wine sauce was oh so divine there was not enough to dip our bread in. Our only feedback is that we wished there was more sauce! Its subtle flavour warmed our hearts and bellies.

Refreshing starter that was a lot bigger than we expected, would be good for sharing! Fresh crunchy octopus with onion salsa and tomato leche, garnished with crispy tortilla bits.

Can we just have the rice?? 🤤

Tender beef cheeks resting on a plate of potato mousseline, served with a generous helping of red wine jus and roasted vegetables. The beef was so delightfully tender, a rich dish that left us wanting more with each bite.

Overall, my family had a wonderful experience at Perch and we would definitely be back for more.

Calamari fried to perfection. The golden batter coats thick and crunchy around large squid pieces with a hint of salted-egg yolk. The star of the dish was definitely the aioli, a curry leaf emulsion that paired wonderfully with the deep fried pieces of baby squid.

It was crowded during dinner time, so we sat outside with a lovely side view of the jewel vortex. The service was excellent - would like to give special mention to the waiter at the front counter.

This dish features al dente angel hair capellini, tossed with garlic, birds eye chilli and thyme in olive oil. Spice lovers would love this! It comes with three huge tiger prawns cooked to perfection - crispy shells and tender on the inside.

Some very very pretty looking premium eclairs. The original price is quite costly at $8 per eclair but with burpple beyond, these were 2 for 2! The seasonal Christmas designs are very cute and would be a lovely addition at any Christmas gathering.

Made tastier with Burpple Beyond!! ◡̈

Affectionately known as BOP to me, this is my go to ice cream place when I want something that cheers me up. It’s not overly sweet, and the floral, herby flavours really come through in a way that is light and refreshing on the palate.

This was honestly quite an underwhelming poke bowl... for the same price and number of ingredients I could get better quality and more worth-it-for-money poke bowls elsewhere! Majority of the plate was filled with cucumber slices drizzled with mayonnaise. As a veggie lover I was expecting a wider variety of veggies.

Ambiance was really nice though - great lighting with a view of the vortex

come eat with me! ˙ᵕ˙
