My colleagues and I decided to head to the MBFC area for lunch, to get the vibe of the lunchtime crowd there.
The restaurant is really packed for lunch. Good thing we made reservation prior and got a nice table at a corner with long cushioned seats along the wall.
We ordered our individual main dishes and some appetisers to share. Here are the highlights:
- Devilled Pork Sausage and Onion: $15. Nice presentation, with a bowl of cut sausages in a tomato based stew and there’s a filo pastry baked and placed on top of the bowl. It came with a portion of potato wedges. Not bad.
- Cold Mac Salad: $6. Elbow pasta, crisp bacon, cress and mustard mayo. Didn’t like this, as the pasta was a little hard for my liking. When I asked the server, he checked with the chef and replied that this was how it is supposed to be.
- Potato Salad: $6. Soft boiled baby potato, egg and chive mayo. This was not bad. Sizeable portion and good to share amongst at least 4 people if you are also ordering a main course each.
- Fish & Chips: $16.50. Beer battered grouper fillet, caper mayo with fries and salad. The fish is good. I liked this very much. Recommended!
- Crab Meat Linguine: $16.50. With roasted garlic, oregano, chili flakes and olive oil. Pasta is nice. The crab meat portion was also good. Recommended!
- ‘Replenish’ Wholesome blends: $8. After all the dining, I needed a juice for some detox. This sounded good. It had apple, tomato and ginger in it. The ginger taste is not overpowering. Good to try.
- Pazookie: $9.50. This is a giant cookie with peanut butter caramel, popcorn crumble, ice cream and coffee ganache. Good to share, cos the portion is big.
- Banana Caramel Waffle: $8. Freshly baked waffle with honeycomb toffee ice cream, chocolate sauce and toasted almonds. This is good. Waffle is nice and I liked the combination of the banana and ice cream. Try it!
I like their main courses, which are quite filling. Desserts are also good.
