The final dish we had at Miska Cafe, the ๐—ฆ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐—š๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—น๐—น ($58), was the encore of the concert. All the concert goers were deliriously dancing to the beats, trying to prolong their enjoyment as they knew that this epic night would unfortunately end soon.

The smorgasbord of seafood blew us away. The ๐—š๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ป was fabulously flaky, the ๐—™๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ต ๐—™๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜€ marvellously moist, the ๐—ž๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ป๐˜€ captivatingly crunchy and the sublime ๐—ฆ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ถ๐—ฑ werenโ€™t rubbery at all. Every component was flawless.

We were impressed with the dishes at Miska and itโ€™s hard to pick a favourite. Both platters obviously stood out for their gargantuan serving size and sheer variety, but in terms of taste and innovation, Iโ€™d vote for the Beef Burger Pizza.

If Miska Cafeโ€™s starters were like listening to your favourite band on radio, the grilled meats were akin to attending their concert. We were spoilt for choice due to the wide selection of grilled meats, so we sagaciously picked everything: the ๐— ๐—ถ๐˜… ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—š๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—น๐—น ($71).

This was nirvana for meat lovers. The ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—™๐—ถ๐—น๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜€ were succulent, the ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—ฆ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜€ were juicy and the ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฏ ๐—–๐˜‚๐˜๐—น๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜€ were tender without any gamey taste. The only letdown was the ๐—ฅ๐—ถ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜†๐—ฒ, which was too tough. Among the sauces, the ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ถ was unanimously our favourite.

The sides, often overlooked in such platters, were good too. The fluffy ๐—•๐˜‚๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฅ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ, delicious ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—•๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐˜† ๐—ฃ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฒ๐˜€, refreshing ๐—–๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ป ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—ผ๐—ฏ and crispy ๐—™๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜€ served as a welcome distraction from the proteins.

We all have our favourite type of pizza. Pepperoni, Margherita, Hawaiian, Quattro Formaggi, and the list goes on. But Iโ€™m sure you havenโ€™t tasted anything like Miska Cafeโ€™s ๐—•๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ณ ๐—•๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฃ๐—ถ๐˜‡๐˜‡๐—ฎ ($28).

While I usually scoff at attempts to meddle with the good olโ€™ cheeseburgerโ€™s sanctity, this deconstructed burger won me over. The generous amounts of minced beef, tomatoes and onions, laid out on chewy dough slathered with homemade pizza sauce and topped with lots of mozzarella, were an alluring amalgamation.

Every slice was bursting with flavour, with the beefโ€™s robustness and mozzarellaโ€™s creaminess shining through. The juicy tomatoes and pungent onions cut through the grease effectively, making this a โ€œburgerโ€ I couldnโ€™t put down.

If the Hummus was a slam dunk, the ๐—ž๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜„๐—ป ๐—š๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฎ๐˜€ ($26) was a half-court three-pointer. Five large prawns lay on a bed of rocket leaves and were garnished with chopped parsley, tomato salsa and lime slices. Majestically grilled, the prawns were succulent, with the tartar sauce making them more magnificent.

Overlooking the sea with yachts docked at the harbour, Quayside Isle at Sentosa looks more like the French Riviera than Singapore. Youโ€™d have to pay a premium to dine at restaurants with such a view, but the food at Miska Cafe is surprisingly reasonably-priced, made even more attractive with some Burpple Beyond deals.

๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ข๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—›๐˜‚๐—บ๐—บ๐˜‚๐˜€ ($16) set the tone for the night. The purรฉed chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice and garlic may look unassuming, but was packed full of flavour. The pita bread, lightly toasted and still fluffy, paired with this delightful dip was simply divine.

The ๐—Ÿ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฏ ๐—ฆ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ธ ($25) featured a gargantuan chunk of lamb sitting atop a bed of mashed potatoes. Beautifully braised, the lamb shank was very tender and flavourful, with only a slight hint of gamey-ness. The creamy mashed potatoes were good too.

A dish similar to the chicken chop served at hawker centres is usually an afterthought in restaurants, but at @lighthousebistro, the ๐—›๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐—–๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป ($19) threatened to steal the show. Gorgeously charred and glazed with honey, the succulent chicken was stupendous. The crispy sweet potato fries were splendid as well.

Those who are famished should opt for the ๐—ฆ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜€ ๐—ฉ๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐—ฅ๐—ถ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜†๐—ฒ ($28). Four thick pieces of ribeye were piled on top of each other, and their perfectly pink centres made us salivate. Superbly tender and juicy, they were excellent.

The second dish we ordered was the ๐—–๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐—ป & ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ($14). Besides two pieces of the aforementioned chicken, this consisted of three pancakes as well, served with butter and maple syrup on the side. The buttermilk pancakes were fragrant, fluffy and not too dense. While adding butter and maple syrup is optional, the combination of flavours did amp up the taste considerably. The textural contrast between the chicken and pancakes was also delightful. This was another magnificent masterpiece.

Awesome meal and I'd definitely return to @birdfolks.sg for more fried chicken!

Fans of fried chicken (that's everyone, I'm guessing) should check out Birdfolks at NeWest. While there's no shortage of fried chicken joints in Singapore -- there's at least one in every shopping mall, sometimes even three in bigger malls -- Birdfolksย differentiates itself by using Asian herbs to marinate the chicken, and frying each piece only upon order.ย 

With Burpple Beyond, I could get 1-for-1 Signature Fried Chicken. The ๐—™๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ง๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ต๐˜€ ($13) came with three pieces of boneless thighs, oregano fries and a salad. At some fried chicken joints, you can sometimes be served chicken whose skin is soggy or oil-laden, or both. You'll get none of that here. The skin is perfectly crispy and possessed a salty-peppery-herby flavour that was an absolute treat. Ripping off the tender and juicy flesh, the chicken's natural juices flowed out, luxuriously lubricating my lips. It was stupendously scrumptious.

We were less than pleased with the ๐—™๐—ฟ๐˜†-๐˜‚๐—ฝ ($25), which reminded me of a clothing brand: SUPER DRY! The combination of fried eggs, rock-hard bacon, fried potatoes and chorizo rendered my throat parched. The sauteed mushrooms alleviated the dryness and the baked beans in salsa (?) were a godsend. Did no one think that adding some greens to this dish would make it more palatable?

I liked the ๐—™๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ ($5.50), which was smooth and robust. The mains we chose today were hit and miss, so next time we'd stick to the tried and tested Truffle Scrambled Eggs.
