Great 'Tapas' place

For pictures and more reviews, visit my blog at www.ms-skinnyfat.comThe place was empty during dinner time on a Saturday. I guess it's more of a pre-clubbing drinks place evident by the people who trickled in after 9pm. I couldn't help think it has something to do with the spotty service. The waiter took forever to check if the kitchen has the Chef's platter and the bartender had to come take our orders instead.The Chef Platter would have been ideal for the greedy us who always look for variety in our meals. It has all the Lucky 13 favorites: Gambas al Ajillo, Quesadillas, Spicy Cuban Mojo Drumlets, Ham & Cheese croquetas and tortilla chips. It's funny how the kitchen wasn't able to produce the platter considering that they have all the other items on the menu. Well that didn't stop the Stupidgirl from ordering everything still, actual portions and all. We snacked on the complimentary corn tortilla chips with salsa (refillable) while we waited for our courses to arrive. The salsa proved to be too weak for my liking, lacking in tomatoes and citrus. There are various stuffing for the Quesadilla (S$20) and we went for the Chicken one. It is filled with the usual cheese, mushrooms and roasted chicken breast and served with more tortilla chips and dips. Some herbs must have been used in the quesadilla to give it a hint of bitterness but the overall flavors were adequate. I would love for it to be a little less dry though. Kept thinking about the KFC quesadilla while having this and that was kinda nicer on a different level. The Cuban Medianoche pressed sandwich (S$22) is precisely the perfect midnight snack that it claims to be (the sandwich was historically eaten at midnight). It's simply a ham, roast pork and cheese sandwich with gherkins but everything just worked out so well. I loved the toasty buttered crust of the bread, the perfect carb to filling ratio, the little bit of creamy aioli? sauce with the sweet vinegarish gherkins. Throw in some Rosemary Crispy fries and you have a winning dish.The Gambas al Ajillo (S$18), sauteed tiger prawns, was packed with spices and herbs...Read on more at http://www.ms-skinnyfat.com/2012/10/restaurant-lucky-13.html

So, the verdict, warts n all of new trendy gaff Lucky 13. Pros & cons.

Pros first: Good music, niche concept (only Miami concept in town TMK), great service, great food (the quesadilla needs jalapenos, shredded beef stew & spicy drumlets* were boss), Kirin on tap, OK early on for families. Lottsa potential for after hours events (Viper lounge could get interesting at 6am, Living room replacement??)

Now the cons: Not so many actually & I am a fussy M***! But here goes anyway. Odd location hidden in the front of 111 Somerset mall, so first timers will find it hard to find. Bit dark inside for dinner, more of a pre club snack venue. Kirin only in pints no halves?!? Dessert menu limited to churros, but no worries coz I like em. WiFi kept dropping out. And when I asked the server about it a glass of white wine turned up..I said what is this, she said you wanted white wine right? I said nah I said I wanted Wifi LOL!

*best spicy chicken drumlets in SingVegas! Need a map, compass and hiking boots to find the toilet tho :(

For full story coverage and pictures, please view:http://www.epinosh.com/lucky-13-singapore/ Lucky 13, is tucked away in a corner at street level of TripleOne Somerset (directly opposite Coffee & Toast). There are 17 selections to pick from the food menu (menu - a single-page, laminated card) while they offer extensive liquor options (bar right). Miami style with herbs dominated dishes, the cuisine has been influenced heavily by the Cuban/Latins. I ordered as many as 7 dishes in the first and made another round for a few which tagged the most likes. We ordered Appletini; cocktail of the day which is going at an amazing price - $5 (only from 5-8pm)! One good thing to note, there is no GST/service charges here; all were NETT prices.For starter, we had Garlic Rosemary Fries with Roasted House-made Ketchup and Fire-roasted Corn Salsa with Cuban Style Ancho Chilli Butter. Not forgetting, the free-flow of home-made tortilla chips with salsa dip on-the-house.could never resist the temptation of straight cut fries, especially when each strips was fried to crisp till golden brown. I prefer thick cut to shoe strings, the manner when I can savor the real potato than just plain crunchiness. The fries came with a light rosemary aroma, while the garlic was less noticeable. I love them for being hot & crispy, not overly salted; it tastes so good that at the end of the meal, I am still enjoying it albeit they turned cold - OOMPH! The home-made Ketchup makes a good condiment to go along, with or without, the fries tasted excellent! The serving was huge but we had 2 portions even though the sandwiches do come with fries, I just never had enough (face palm).The stellar of the night? - Medianoche "Midnight" Sandwich. The portion was huge, if not for a group, a single serving is good to feed 1-2 people, along with a few starter. The sandwich is to-die for. You will be regretted for not eating one. The bread was so amazingly crusty yet light & fluffy underneath. It was pressed against the fillings; fresh, juicy and cheesy. The melt-in-your mouth sensation was astonishing, yes I am talking about the ham and cheese that are causing a whirlpool in your mouth! A large serving of garlic rosemary flavored fries are served alongside, and a good creamy dipping sauce for that added punch! We ordered another round so that none of us would miss this out - it was so heavenly!Next in line - Croquettes with Ham and Cheese. The mash potato with ham and cheese stuffing, were deep fried till golden brown. I cannot tell if they were coated with polenta or fine breadcrumbs to yield such a nice grainy crust, all I could say, this obloid mass was amusingly crunchy and piping hot from the fryer. The mash potato was lusciously creamy, it can be seen oozing under my fork. It was another big hit of the night and we had 12 of them! Our final tapas - Grilled Achiote Chicken with Spice marinated beans; was a "DIY wraps".

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
