It was a fullfilling meal at arbite with 5 mains, 3 sides and 2 desserts. More in the post. Kicked start our meal with Salted Egg Fries ($6), it's actually the fries of the month. Arbite's rendition is having it dry but it would be even better if the salted egg yolk is slightly richer. Another dish from the small bites menu, Beef Tataki ($8). Seared beef tataki served rare, accompanied with sautéed mushrooms,having this at $8 is really a steal! For mains, we had XO Duck Tagliatelle ($16), duck breast, tagliatelle, xo chilli sauce, sugar snaps and corn kernels. The overall taste was just overwhelming, from the xo sauce to the duck meat. Pretty good, the sister brunch of A for Arbite is serving XO Lobster Pasta instead. Pan Seared Salmon ($20) served with a creamy mash and Asian vegetable laksa pistou, is one of the unque dishes.

A dish that we have all been waiting for - Liu Sha French Toast ($9). Matcha soaked brioche, salted egg custard, candied nuts and fresh berries. Note that it's salted egg custard within and not molten. Of course everyone loves having molten within. It's overall interesting and be sure to eat it while it's hot!

Not a pleasant start

Was shown to a table but had no menu given to us until I requested for it.
Menu lacked photos, which made it hard to read all the words and decipher the names of the dishes being served to other diners.
No kids' cutlery was given to our two children. When we requested, only plastic plates were given, and had to make do with the heavy forks and knives. No spoons given for their kid's pasta.

Reminded staff crew to serve long black together with the rest of the dishes but it came earlier. By the time the dishes were served, long black was already cold.
Luckily Lego bricks were available to entertain the kids during the long wait for the food.

Oily and Cold?

The arbite breakfast which was recommended arrived at my table cold. The sautéed mushrooms were bland and tasteless. The salted egg fries were very oily and I felt that it was deep fried to the extent where it was hollow and lacked the soft inside the fries should have. The seasoning for the fries was quite unique but it was very salty.
