Amateur barhopper comes again!
I came here with a friend to catch-up. This place is unlike the other bars I reviewed (please read them). It is more of a dining place and the counter isn't meant for drinking, though there is a "plank" (? Possible a long table whatever) facing the window.
Food: I ordered a fish and chips from them. Pretty decent. Their dip is a bit too sour though. Otherwise, it's just like any other fish and chips. The fish however is cooked really thoroughly and the process of freezing and thawing the fish is done well, so the fish still has tenderness throughout. My friend ordered a crab meat spaghetti. It tasted pretty decent, though I can't really describle it since, 1: I review bars not food 2: I didn't eat much of it. But anyway, their crab meat is pretty generous to say the least. So I guess it works out well even though their spaghetti is not much.
Drinks: Here comes the main part. I ordered a whisky and my friend ordered 2 pints. Nothing fanciful about the drinks but there's a weird part which I don't understand.
They had a 2-for-1 promotion. I wanted to mixed the whisky match-up, and i was willing to pay for the more expensive price regardless. But it wasn't allowed. It still makes me curious till this day. And will probably make me curious till I die anyway.
The beer is just a typical draft beer. For beer however, there is a certain technique to pouring it as well. The one who got us the beer was pretty skilled too. It was poured fluently and the foam was just nice, with a rough 10% of the foam just above the glass.
Service: Now, I must say that their service is neat. (mostly because of my embarrassing moment) I knocked over my glass of water due to the dim lighting, but the service crew quickly relocated us to another table nearby, carrying our drinks and food for us. They mopped it up quick and was good enough for another customer to come in within minutes. Now, I must clarify that the star I gave above was for this act, not because of the friendly server service.
It's a pretty nice place to catchup with old friends. They offer decent drinks during happy hours and they serve decent food that are not too overprice considering the ingredients and amount they served.
