If you follow my Project 365 blog, you would have seen this picture before. The vegetables are fake, the chef is not. Just saying.
This is one of those restaurants where there’s enough space for a family dinner but at the same time, the ambience is cosy enough for a dinner date or celebration for two.
The placemats listed the history of some popular dishes in Singapore. Groovy idea, I say!
Oh, before I start talking about the food, I should mention that I was offered an assignment by Women’t Weekly Singapore to review this restaurant for their June 2011 edition.
Please don’t squint too much. You have the review coming up below anyway, and not a condensed version at that! 🙂
We were treated to a set menu and had 2 choices for drink, soup/salad, main course, and dessert.
TH’s chunky tomato soup. It was very different from any tomato soup we have ever tasted. There were chunks of tomato in the soup and lots of coriander. There wasn’t any cream in it as far as I could tell. Quite a homely, wholesome bowl.
My entre. (btw, how do you make that small line thing appear over the ‘e’? I don’t know how to do that. Ok, so this is grilled salmon with some yummy sauce over it, served on creamy mashed potatoes. Again, the portion size was huge and after that salad, I couldn’t even get through 1/3rd of it. So I packed the rest. It was the right thing to do.
