Oh man, did the weekend just fly PASTA like that?! 馃ぃ Known for their locally sourced & freshly harvested ingredients, I was keen to try the Sweet Potato 馃崰 Tortellini at @openfarmcommunity but unfortunately it was not available. 馃槶馃槶馃槶 The crew went along the line of pastas & proposed a swap to Bolognese, which was in the kids menu but they could upsize it to adult portion. 馃憣馃徎 . Priced at $26++, the portion was decent & I must say that they were pretty generous with the ingredients - lots of bolognese sauce doused over the heap of pasta. 馃崫馃崫馃崫 While I鈥檝e always liked my pasta to be tomato-based, this was pretty one-dimensional & it got very heavy after a while. 馃槬 It was a moment of enlightenment of why this was in the kids menu - & why it should remain that way. . The pasta was easily half the width of a normal flat pasta, almost akin to yellow mee used in lor mee - a size that is good for kids' bite. 馃憦馃徎 Albeit having a nice firm bite, I felt that the pasta rendered too thick a mouthfeel as compared to normal broad pasta which are thinner & flatter. 馃槓 . The plate was topped with some grated parmesan cheese 馃, which added a light savoury element & some cheesy pull amidst the sweet meat sauce. 馃構馃構馃構馃構 This however also added to the heaviness of the carbs & meat which was a pretty dry combination to begin with, making the plate really cloying halfway through. 馃槬 . Would have appreciated an addition of some arugula/zucchini 馃 or crunchy greens 馃ガ to make it more refreshing but then again, I was once again reminded that kids do not like vegetables. 馃ぃ Perhaps this slight tweak for adults鈥 version would be good! 馃憤馃徎 . Personally felt that there were limited choices on their lunch menu - perhaps they could act on expanding it. For now, I guess I have learnt my lesson - sticking to the adults menu should be the way to go! 馃憣馃徎
BEEFing up against those viruses 馃挭馃徎馃挭馃徎馃挭馃徎 with this Braised BEEF Open Facer! My picture doesn鈥檛 do it justice because you cannot tell that the homemade focaccia is close to a footlong! 馃い馃い馃い Perhaps this helps to justify the price tag of this plate at $32++, which I thought was pretty reasonable for the portion. 馃憣馃徎 . The focaccia was really well-done, standing firm to withstand the weight of that generous slab of pulled beef. 鉂も潳鉂 Crusty on the outside & fluffy on the inside, this buttery homemade bread was indeed a delightful one! 馃崬 . The star has got to be the slow-cooked pulled beef 馃悇 that they lay elegantly atop the focaccia. Albeit being pretty robust in flavours 馃構馃構馃構, @openfarmcommunity would have aced this dish if the meats were a tad more succulent. . It is then topped with pickled cabbage & mustard dressing which elevates the heaviness from the meats, making it a more refreshing dish. 馃憤馃徎馃憤馃徎馃憤馃徎 The side of fresh crunchy greens 馃 helps to cleanse the palate before digging into this meaty plate again. 馃挄
馃幎I鈥檓 WAFFLing on sunshine (wow!)~ And don鈥檛 it feel good~馃幎 Almost the only time I hear of the word 鈥淏akkwa鈥 (Chinese pork jerky) frequently is during Chinese New Year 馃Ё, so it was really amusing to see it in a brunch menu! If you are equally curious about what that entails, you can try The Waffle Bakkwa & Egg Stack ($26++) at @openfarmcommunity! 馃槏馃槏馃槏 . Featuring 2 waffle toasts sandwiching a slab of homemade bakkwa 馃悥, a generous portion of scrambled egg 馃嵆, finished with some tomato jam, this proved to be a rather interesting combination. 馃槈 . Unlike the usual bakkwa sold at Bee Cheng Hiang/Lim Chee Guan, this is not overly sweetened with a honey glaze, nor is it laden with colouring. 馃憦馃徎 Essentially, it is a slice of barbequed pork belly that resembles the iconic tough texture of a pork jerky, like bacon. 馃 Loved the smoky flavours & the char on the meat, but as I am personally not a fan of fatty meat, this was a tad too fatty for me. 馃ぃ . Those creamy scrambled eggs 馃嵆聽were the winner - just look at how moist they are! 馃い馃い馃い Just lightly seasoned, they certainly pair well with the robust-tasting bakkwa. 馃挄 The waffle toasts were fluffy & chewy, just wished they were more crisp on the exterior. The tomato jam 馃崊 rendered a nice sweet & tangy zest, complimenting the savoury bakkwa & making the overall combination a more refreshing one. 馃憤馃徎馃憤馃徎馃憤馃徎 . Overall not too bad, something special i guess! 馃憣馃徎 Do you like your waffles sweet or savoury, or both? 馃
