Great food in lovely settings

The dinner venue tonight was The Disgruntled Chef, located at the trendy Dempsey Hill. An interesting modern-European restaurant and bar concept hidden beneath a flight of wooden steps - how lovely and secluded. Consisting of a contemporary and vintage-glamor design, the restaurant offered good service as well.

We had the Crab & Lobster Sliders (SGD$14.00) was another delicacy that we were glad to have ordered - small lobster and crab rolls topped with thin slivers of Granny Smith apples. The bread roll had a lovely fluffy, fresh texture to it, going very well with the luscious flavor of the minced seafood meat and crunchiness of apple slivers.

Then we took something from the "big plate" section to share - Grilled French Quail (SGD$32.00), served with Frisee Salad, Crispy Bacon and Poached Egg. If you love quail - well, its taste is very similar to duck meat, only smoother and more tender. This one had a bonus hint of smokiness to enhance the flavor, and was incredibly scrumptious.

*Helen had a Sea Salt & Chilli Margarita (SGD$18.00) for drinks - Don Julio Reposado, calamansi, Honey, Sea Salt Air. This drink was a major WOW to the tastebuds - refreshing, yet spicy, getting the palate all tangy in its exotic flavor.

Dissappointed & will not come back again

I was there to celebrate my mum’s birthday and we ordered a few dishes to share amongst the family and one of which is the Crackling Suckling Pig which took 45mins to prepare. When the dish was served in front of my sister, the smell of the pig was distinctive and unbearable. However, she held back her comment as she thought it was just her being too sensitive. Each of us took a piece each meat and after eating it, the same sentiments were felt about the suckling pig. Hence, we decided to inform our waiter and let him gave the feedback to the chef.
 
 Low and behold, another waiter came back with the dish and told us that there was nothing wrong with the dish! If you think we are trying to ask for free food, we are not! If you call yourself a DISGRUNTLED CHEF, then you should value this feedback and send someone to handle the situation better than what you did to us last evening! We have eaten suckling pig from different types of restaurants before and will have some basic understanding that there was something not right to the food. My dad even had to use mustard sauce to cover the smell of this pork, what do you think was wrong here?
 
 I held back my complaint last evening as I do not want to spoil lovely evenings that mum should deserve.

Classics remain, with new, light offerings

The Disgruntled Chef has undergone a revamp (menu and space) for its fourth anniversary. While signatures (like the grilled French quail with crispy bacon and poached egg, $33) remain, the rest of the menu has adopted a lighter, more natural-flavoured approach. The seared scallop carpaccio ($18) for example, has flavours of soy brown butter, marinated ikura, konbu, lime and puffed sorghum wheat, the last to give it texture and smokiness. The brunch menu has also been switched up: it now features tartines only. Pictured is the mostly-adults-only Marie Antoinette ($20) - a not too sweet tartine made of bostock (almond frangipane on day-old brioche), almond cream, prunes and Armagnac ice cream. They also have a new coffee machine (no more Nespresso).
