we were here actually just few weeks back with my OPS bros & spouses on 10.10.2018. we had a great time and dinner.^^wife though had to rush off somewhere & only returned later. and it was pouring that evening & not so many customers.
this evening, even though we booked 9pm to use chope offpeak vouchers, halia was full and the ambience was wonderful.
we didn’t want too much food and carbs.
wife ordered the oysters. we ordered first 3 oysters for S$13.50, oysters were great..then as we liked it we added 3 more oysters and the server changed it to 6 for S$26 in the bill. 🙂
service here consistently good. the 2 vietnamese servers last visit and this time the filipino server.
the mixed mushrooms with garlic butter was good as before. simple yet excellent dish this.
we liked the sunchokes..it kind of looked like old ginger than artichokes though it had the texture…anyway i loved the dish, lots of fibre too. lol!
blackmore wagyu chuck rib carpaccio was the natural sweey kind w/o sauce. i liked it this way too though i don’t mind sauce too.
vegetable chips came with the carpaccio. good!
and the best had to te the wagyu spare ribs.
it was braised, soft & moist, and extremely flavourful as the collagen became flavourful gelatine.
really excellent this!
the chocolate was pedestrian actually, good enough i guess for restaurant standard.
had a relax evening with wife and enjoyed delicious food at very affordable price after chope discounts.
