Wonderful 4pax Dinner @ Bruno’s Tanjong Katong on 10Jul2022

philip bought 4pax dinner @ Bruno’s tanjong katong on 10.7.2022.^^

https://goo.gl/maps/wzEUDQ7nkzcVDAiWA

agree with Stephen prices are on the high side for the location & ambience more of a cafe

food is good so that makes up for it though not specially good or better than others…

burrata with parma ham $40 not the best ..but doable

truffles pizza $48 good but price clearly way out for me ..I think $28 about it

rack of lamb $36 the best dish tender moist & tasty & a great tasty salad side

tagliata (di manzo) $48 pretty good not the best also great salad a bit ratatouille side

after dinner we had coffee..

server doesn’t know piccolo latte..I had flat white coffee was average I guess..got microfoam & bit of latte art not silky smooth fully integrated..not 1/2 as good as wenyu’s

8pax RI Bros Tapas Dinner on 7Jul2022

made 8pax RI bros dinner

menu

  1. pumpkin salad
  2. tortilla- spanish omelette
  3. flamed squid on cauliflower puree
  4. seafood squidink pasta
  5. beef brisket ragout tagliatelle (experimental)
  6. grilled cod in spicy tomato sauce
  7. canard à l’orange (duck in orange sauce =experimental)
  8. flamed sous vide aussie pork tomahawk in red wine tomatoes ratatouille
  9. peanut herb crusted rack of lamb
  10. tiramisu

seafood squidink past par excellence, everyone favourite.

the experimental beef brisket was very good for a braised meat pasta(24hrs 65degC oven then chopped and braised with tomato beef sauce not quite ragout, excellent with the tagliatelle, and the sliced beef was tender and tasty) though squidink pasta is still the pasta of choice.

everyone agreed best dish was the flamed sous vide aussie pork tomahawk in red wine tomatoes ratatouille…

canard à l’orange (duck in orange sauce =experimental) a small serving, quite good, sauce can be improved.

tiramisu not so good today…didn’t do for few years…couldn’t get the mascarpone I used previously & coffee too much liquid not strong enough…I made a very good tiramisu few days afterwards got all the ingredients right. 🙂

Thanks all for a wonderful evening jolly good time 🙏😎

Excellent Lobster Bun Dinner @ Hoang Hau on 24Jun2022

leng khiang bought 4pax dinner @ hoang hau, a restaurant he owns..with philip yeo & steven tay…on 24.6.2022.^^

https://goo.gl/maps/2jdetYNcW76bLQTL8

very good dishes..

the lobster bun, a newly created dish, was the bestest! live boston lobster very fresh & nicely done, so sweet & tender..not rubbery..

the sauce quite unique, seems not the usual bun cha dip/drip sauce, nutty from brown butter & lobster tomalley..bun (beehoon) nicely infused..

salad was refreshing..

banh seo seafood pancake was very good too..one of the best I had ..with belly pork & prawn & veg filling..

the Vietnamese crisp roll with pork good too

the pho soup was tasty..as philip and steven commented & I concur, broth was very robust & quite a tad sweet..maybe a different preparation & nice in its own way too..but preference is a 清清lighter, natural meat sweetness broth with lots of herb…so lots of thai basil, some mint will be good…

love the Vietnamese coffee, siu siu tai….
