Some crazy notion got me craving for truffle chicken; and googling got me to The White Rabbit. At my first visit, I was told that it was sold out and the waiter suggested that I come earlier another day. It was fine with me so I ordered pumpkin risotto instead. The risotto was bland and the portion small. However, it appeals to me since I like bland. The second time round, I made sure that I reached the restaurant 5 minutes after it opens but was told that it was not available. That really annoyed me because twice denied is a very hurtful rejection experience. I excused myself and went somewhere else. Nevertheless I still called to make a dinner reservation with my specific food request for that very same day. The request was acceded.
Well, no lady likes feeling rejected; so I went for dinner with silent hurting. To my pleasant surprise, the staff were very nice to me and my companion. They were very polite and attentive to us the entire evening; they even gave us complimentary mushrooms to make up. All in all, dining in The White Rabbit is still a very pleasant experience (except for a probably innocent "hope you enjoyed your chicken" remark at our departure which sounds like it carried a bite).
The bread served before the meal was warm and flavourful. The butter melts upon spreading, adding to the bread a rich and juicy flavour. The long-awaited truffle chicken and mushrooms however, turned out to be a little too salty. We enjoyed the beef carpaccio though.
