my RI friend (& her hubby) organised a 5pax lunch at top table at temasek junior college on 20.7.2017. ^^
we did this a few times over the years. i counted maybe this the 3rd time at top table, once with CIA downstairs for asean cuisine in the classrooms & once at sugar loaf.
the 3-course set lunch with coffee & cookies at S$13.80 is the best value meal anywhere i guess. ^^
there was a choice of salad or cream of cauliflower. i had the salad which was good, refreshing. did not try the cream of cauliflower but it looked pretty good, the right color & texture of a dish done right….
the chicken looked like a chicken roulade pressed meat..my friend it was like the one i made quite a while back..a chicken ballotine..
of course this one was beautiful served with the entire gamut of sauce & sides, so really quite a different proposition altogether.
they had limited servings of roast of the day.
we managed to get our order of ribeye roast, medium rare for me.
it was done excellently, basically like a prime rib, cut from an entire ribeye roast, hence the charring was on the rim & not on the flats like a grilled or pan-charred steak.
the steak itself was not the best cut, to be expected for a S$13.80 3-course set lunch. so there was some tendons & just a little bit tough for some parts, but basically a restaurant standard preparation, almost perfect! 🙂
the pair of dessert was pretty good too, though not really my interest…
LS the organiser made me some macadamia shortbread…very nice cookies…
we had a wonderful lunch & great time catching up, and planning to come back for another lunch in a few weeks, during this period where the students are actively outting their their culinary & hospitality training to good practical use…
