I really liked the cheeses and hummus because they tasted very Greek and authentic. The sauce (with the meatballs) was also very full of interesting spices, and the tzatziki too. The octopus was grilled to perfection -- not too chewy but not undercooked.
The main issue I have is that the dishes are so small for such a high price. The fried cheese was $19 for just one block! Also, the Souvlaki really disappointed me because it came in a lacklustre wrap and dry fries that Macdonald's could trump... . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The oven baked vegetables were soft and the béchamel sauce was tasty. There was varying degrees of softness between the eggplant / zucchini / potato etc, and wasn’t mushy. The portion was huge though, and we had to do a takeaway since we were already really full.

Menu description: kefalotiri psito, topped with fig sauce.

This is basically a salty white cheese that is fried. It was nice on first bite, but quickly got hard as the heat dissipated. It was too salty for our liking.

The fig sauce was wonderful, with the natural sweetness of the figs shining through!

I enjoyed all 3 dips, with our favourite being the taramalasata (white cod roe, lemon, capers, extra virgin olive oil). It was savoury, tangy, smooth - a taste of the ocean but not at all fishy.

The hummus was delicious as well, creamy and light, just like how good hummus should taste like. The melitzanosalata (smoked eggplant, feta, herbs) was good too, with a more vegetal aroma.

I liked the crispy pita, it was basically a very crisp and crunchy fried bread. The grilled pita however, could have been more fluffy.

After all these years, the banana leaf curry rice experience at this institution can still satisfy me like nobody’s business.
For my solo lunch, I had ordered the popular Masala Chicken ($5.90) and Black Squid (small: $9). Their respective spice paste and sauce were astonishingly good. For the former, I was served a huge piece of chicken breast with wing and drumlet still attached, so let’s be frank, the meat was bound to be a tad dry at its thickest point. To fix that, I shredded it up and mixed in a generous amount of the paste-rich, spicy gravy. Instantly, it became more shiok! I also liked that the squid was cooked just right - slightly chewy but not rubbery. The young gentleman at the payment counter told me that this dish, which features a savoury sauce studded with soft pieces of garlic, is what the staff recommends to customers who can’t handle spicy food. I think you ought to order it anyway because it is very appetising.
Eating off a large piece of banana leaf never fails to add to the pleasure of dining at Samy’s Curry. The two complimentary vegetables of dryish potato and a wet-style cabbage I got yesterday, were really aromatic and delicious too. On top of that, they are generous with their papadum.
In case you are wondering, my bill, inclusive of a fresh coconut, came to about $16.30. But my level of satisfaction was off-the-charts 😄

You know I'm a fan of @borrowdalefreerange pork, and this elegant yet relaxed restaurant at Dempsey is serving it affordably during lunch.
🔸
The pork is flavourful, tastes more porky, less gamey, and actually has a floral scent in its fats.
🔸
Served on a bed of stewed peppers, in a reduced stock cooked with white onions, habanero, fresh red chili, and cherry tomatoes. For carbs, roasted Agria potatoes are served on the side.

👍PS. Cafe still serves the best!
Each menu was big portion, I’m so stuffed! Chopsuey Beef Steak and roasted chicken for the main courses. It is a must to try 🍎apple crumble, it is really rich and moist.

The Peking duck rillette started the course well and the Singa Smore was the sweet end.

They ran out of beef balls. Beef chuck roll was tender but slightly chewy, and some of the slices u have to separate urself for it to cook(mainly cos there's so many slices it inevitably stacks upon each other multiple times lol). Tendon and tripe were unbelievably soft, and beef shank was soft too. A quintessential bowl, quality ingredients and good broth. Hard to fault and probably one of the best if u want a good hearty bowl of beef Pho. I barely added anything to it, tho the chili has a surprising heat.

If theres anything to complain about, the staff told us that we could use Burpple beyond so we went but realised it's locked for off in lieu. And the Noodles were the soft white kind, not the slightly chewy ones that is usually served w pho

And soft shell crab apparently. Absolutely delicious, the Beehoon had flavour and is thoroughly infused with the good ness of the phat crab. A must-try, im guessing it at least rivals some places known for their crab Beehoon
