had excellent 6pax family dinner with brother, SIL & Chuan @ 8picure on 2.2.2021.^^
always enjoyed our meals and good chat with chef gabriel at 8picure.
the dish I like best here is the lobster squid ink pasta. lobster was fresh, sweet, perfect texture and pasta al dente and had really tasty prawn bisque sauce and bits of peppers salsa. very good, love it every time.
this evening we had kumamoto wagyu, almost same as ohmi wagyu but I always partial to ohmi wagyu, and it was quite expensive at S$110++ per serving. we had 2 servings to share.
the other dishes were all great – the cod, Galician octopus very tender, and lamb was excellent. the tagliolini with ama ebi was delicious and the roast pork using spanish duroc was very good too, as always.
& chef gabriel’s tiramisu, the best I had.
my brother, sis and chuan enjoyed the dinner..we had a lovely time together.

WM bought 4pax lunch @ ming tang 重庆烤鱼- with OCH & ZHL on 2.2.2021.^^
excellent 重庆烤鱼 & 凉拌dishes..
very good value for money with eatigo 50% discounts at 11.30am…4pax came to $54.50nett. 🙂
we had the authority of ZHL from ganshu..he said all the 重庆烤鱼restaurants at chinatown too oily and not as tasty. anyway this was really good. 3rd time I been here
we also had the dumplings, 10 pieces 饺子very good!
口水鸡saliva chicken was tasty but not done in the smooth 白斩鸡way which nicer presentation texture and taste.
my own 口水鸡saliva chicken is better (above photo).

- grilled peppers and cauliflower
- ika sugatayaki (grilled whole squid)
- pangrilled halibut beurre blanc sauce
- slow roast Australian prime ribs

wife’s salad was amazing – with pumpkin, arugula, pine nuts toasted almond flakes, red onions, shaved parmesan cheese and what else…it’s becoming the best salad i had, better more luxurious than any in the restaurants..
sautéed mushrooms and grilled vegetables were good.
ika sugatayaki was perfect this evening, just the right texture, great taste and nice bbq flavours from flaming.
halibut was good, charred and tender inside. beurre blanc sauce was good.
chorizo prawns tagliatelle was nicely al dente and very tasty.
slow oven roast Australian prime ribs very tender (6hrs at 90degC and 10mins at 250degC) to perfection, nicely browned and marinade very tasty.
& lamb (18mins in 210degC oven) had little gamey taste, moist and tender, nicely medium rare…K & MY really enjoyed the dinner.
& jessie’s dessert was really refreshing..I had 2 bowls. 🙂
