Great Set Lunch Menu Fare

While coming across Pollen Street Social in London, I remembered that there is a local joint also opened by Jason Atherton and I though to drop by and have a taste. I was a little apprehensive at first as the reviews were mixed. However, I probably did arrive at the right time as the Set Lunch Menu was so worth every penny and I felt really satisfied with my meal, which of course was compounded by good company.

While the service was so so, I must say the atmosphere was lovely; but then again, Keong Saik Rd is one of my favourite places to hang out.

The food at Keong Saik Snacks is fresh and the quantity is sufficient. Overall value for money. Bring your kids in the afternoon or just enjoy a quiet dinner for two in the evening.

A pretentious place that dishes up more British snobbery than a refined British-inspired experience.

I really wanted to like this place, it was cosy, a comfortable degree of casual and easy enough to get to. To be fair, the food was hard to fault and the desserts excellent. Credit must be given where credit is due - the chefs are clearly competent. Sadly, the service was greatly lacking, to the point where the whole dining experience collapses.    A concept dining establishment such as this is not merely selling food, it is selling an experience. Their food prices are on the high side (Red Snapper Fish and Chips - $30) and so clearly, you are not just paying for food. Frankly, portions are also puny (fish from the fish and chips is the size of an adult's palm). The hearty eaters in the group had to go for supper after dinner because they were still hungry. Unless you wanted to burn money on multiple sides, don't expect to be full. But yes the experience, it was inconsistent at best but for most part, reeks of disrespect for guests.   Firstly, water. If you are going to charge $7 for water, have the courtesy to inform your guests. You should respect them enough for them to make an informed decision. When your guests turn down the offer of sparkling water, please counter offer table water instead of staying silent. When you do something like this, you clearly care more about making a quick buck rather than the service experience. It also borders on the dishonest.   Secondly, take orders accurately. At the end of the meal, we were wrongly charged for an additional 3 course meal which we didn't order. Everyone but one person ordered a course dinner - therefore it's as simple as counting the number of persons minus one. However, staff was insistent that one person also ordered a course meal. While the waiter agreed to take it off the tab, his displeasure was evident and he made no attempt to hide it. Seriously, why would anyone choose an establishment such as this to get a free meal. Again, reeks of a patronizing attitude towards guests.   Lastly, no one in the restaurant said good bye when we left - it is almost as if the displeasure from the order dispute has incapacitated the staff's ability to be courteous. This courtesy was extended to most other guests but not to us. This reeks of a lack of professionalism.    The two good things, well-prepared food and two birthday desserts on the house, were sadly overshadowed by the negative as the group agreed that on the whole, it was not a welcoming place. Overpriced food that was not compensated by a delightful experience, unprofessional staff, disrespect for guests... It all made everyone feel somewhat cheated. The unanimous decision after the meal was that this is neither a place we want to visit again nor recommend to our friends. A pity because the food, while in puny portions, was really not half-bad.

I guess they name the place "snacks" is because the portions they serve are snack size. So if you come in with this mindset, you will not be disappointed. The food is really excellent.

The Ox Cheek is so tasty and tender that it just melt in you mouth. The Sea Bass and Snapper are all very well done with the right amount of herbs and garnishes to bring out the best these fishes. The tomatoes with crab mayonnaise is a great refreshing combination.

You will probably not want any other chips after you have tasted the chips that are fried with duck fat, is so good! The potato mash with olive is another great twist to an otherwise ordinary carbo side.

For dessert, the lemon custard tart is very well done with the right amount of tanginess and yet has that lemon flavour that lemon lovers will die for. The texture is smooth as silk and not powdery.

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.
