Eurasian aunties would be pleased with the food at Quentin’s the Eurasian Restaurant. For starters, it’s cooked by Quentin Pereira – the son of the author of ‘Robin’s Eurasian Recipes’, a cookbook book endorsed by neighbour and former First Lady, Mrs Nathan.
Forget that mod-sin rubbish, ditch the overpriced and overhyped zz-char stalls and head over to Quentin's for an absolutely delicous, and hearty and value for money deal.
We visited as a party of 4 and sampled a large variety of dishes. We tried the signature Chicken Curry Devil, Pot Roast Beef, Chicken Keluak curry, Prawn Bastador, Black ink calamari and a couple of vegetable options, plus a sambal fried rice and corned beef fried rice.
Everything was fully flavored, unique, hearty and generously proportioned. In particular, I loved the beef dish, as well as the amazing black ink calamari - that dish made me want to get all the carbs I could find and dunk it into the savory ink sauce. This dish makes 80 dollar squid ink paellas and 30 dollar pastas look like a sad joke. The ingredients were fresh and everything screamed quality, quality, quality.
Kudos to the chef, to be able to create such flavors. To me, this is truly the best of Singaporean cooking. Quentin's definitely deserves more publicity and celebration. Diners are lucky to be able to taste this food in such a welcoming family setting and at such reasonable prices.
Went over using the deal vouchers and was impressed with my colleagues. May have to wait for a short while for the food but it was fab! Location a bit úlu' (far) to my opinion but again, for the food? Worth it!
Defo must try is the Cambrang Bostador (Prawn Curry) yum! Will be back with or without the deal promo. Not to forget, the service staff, they were welcoming and friendly. Great eve!
