A friend of mine had been raving about this place for awhile, so I thought I would drop by and see what the hype was all about.
For our valentines day, we went for the Seafood Set for 2 ($138), which started with the Kangkong, served chilled and blanched with calamansi to add a zesty flavour. I must admit that this took me aback as I am not used to kangkong being served out of a fridge.
The next course, also served out of the fridge was the Piquant vermicelli. Like the kang kong, it took awhile getting adjusted to but once it hit close to room temperature it was actually quite a nice compliment to the other courses.
Finally, the Wild caught baby Indian squid came served warm, juicy with and mixed in some of its squid ink colouring with strong barbecued afer taste.
Similar is the Wild caught New Zealand Littleneck, juicy clams that brought me back to the days when I used to d*** for smaller ones on the beach.
Then came the lightly grilled Diver caught great Altlantic scallop, followed by Locally farmed baramundi, with crispy skin and tender meat.
Finally, had the flambeed Farmed tiger prawn as the final course before dessert.
For dessert, we had the Naked Chendol ($13). Not sure what to make out of this one but it was a nice sweet icy finish to the meal.
Overall, expect good quality cooking from good ingredients. Ordering is and paying is done at the counter in this informal no frills pop up - a nice change to the regular restaurant setting.
