I like this place because the food was generally ok with prices that were affordable. I liked that most of the courses, other than the burgers were served with a generous mesclun salad which ensures you get enough fibre and vitamins to make up for the cholestrol in all those egg yolks. My main beef with this Blackbird Cafe though, was the smell of the oil in the eatery. You know how sometimes when eateries serve deep fried stuff, and somehow the oil doesn't leave and the whole place smells of it? Yeah I really hate those kind of places because most of the time you end up smelling like what you eat, and what other people ate three days ago. Certainly puts a damper on the meal.
Mini Lamb Burger Patties @ SGD 15.00++ where I think the fries were really quite awesome. They were very well-seasoned and savoury and I almost couldn't stop munching although this wasn't mine.
Eggs Benny @ SGD 14.80 ++ were served with on an english muffin each with a choice of ham, bacon or portobello mushroom, topped with hollandaise sauce and served with mixed greens. Also an okay dish, nothing much to rave about.
Summer Squash sandwich @ SGD 13.80 ++, in which there was grilled aubergine @ zucchini with capsicum, basil pesto and brie on turkish bread. I thought this sandwich was really yummy and took me by surprise. I was expecting something bland from all the veggies but I was quite wrong. The pesto added a nice burst of flavour supplemented by the nicely roasted capsicum. The aubergine with brie cheese added a meaty texture that made me forget I was eating rabbit food. Certainly delicious and above my expectations. If its so colourful as below, it must be packed with vitamin goodness.
