As a Singaporean, i am quite ashamed to say that i have not known about Eurasians let alone their unique cuisine until a friend of mine who is a regular patron at Quentin's finally brought me along for dinner last Friday. Quentin's is the only full-fledged Eurasian restaurant in Singapore-with of course a modern twist to some of its dishes. Their "Oxtail Curry Debal" is to die for!!! It is without a doubt very sinful but hey, You only live once, so if you want to indulge yourself, indulge on the good stuff. we also tried the "Prawn bostador" which, as what the waitress informed us, literally means "slap" in creole Portuguese. and true enough, SLAP-it delivered! The Ros Befe (Pot Roast Beef) was a incredible hit given that we had quite a variety of spicy mains, it was a good distraction from all that chilli... HOT HOT HOT.. and did i mention that they have a good range of Portuguese wines?! We were informed by the waitstaff that they only carry Portuguese wine! (by the way they also served Portuguese beer!) as the theme of the evening was SOMETHING NEW, we went for the GREEN WINE. As we were promised that it goes really well with our food choice, and so with that much good stuff, how can a night go wrong? and yes, in line with the heritage food, you can also view the showcases at level 1 and 4. entrance is free. we did visit the showcases while waiting for our food and from then on, we were educated... by the way, if you guys are intending to go there for a makan feast, i suggest you call in advance as the air conditioned room seats is limited. trust me, you dont want to be outside, sweating profusely from all that chilli!
We learned that they actually have an acoustic band every friday night. which is tres cool coz if you've been there you will understand my point. the place is really cozy, peaceful and undeniably charming. nuf said, go check it out for yourself!
