I got the naughty fries as recommended (hand cut potatoes topped with spiced bearnaise, hot beef chilli, fried shallots, parmesan, sesame seeds and parsley). Reckon they could’ve made it “naughtier” with a bit more chilli (and perhaps something to give a bit of acid?) but overall, these were top notch chips with a pretty good sauce.
Plaid Boy recommended the Burning Man burger which sounded promising with roasted jalapeño but I didn’t fancy a wholemeal bun so I opted for the Smokin’ B-Boy instead. It’s a 150g beef patty in a brioche bun with double smoked cheese, beer and treacle cured bacon, barbecue sauce, smoky mayo and crispy onions. Good freakin’ lawd.
The patty was a juicy medium rare, the sauce had a decent smoke and the bacon added that much needed crunch. Perhaps it was me being larry, perhaps it was sobriety kicking in… but in that moment I was the happiest person in the world with my partner on my side and a very good burger on hand.
I managed to order some wing-its before Plaid Boy gave me his “STOP OVER-ORDERING!!!” look. I’m glad I got them as they were delightful. The twice-cooked chicken wings were actually meaty and tender and generously topped with smoky barbecue sauce, chilli and scallions.
My stomach finally caved in after five pieces but there was still a fair bit left. That sauce was smoky enough but as with the fries, it could do with a bit more heat.
I was too inebriated to remember how much each item costed but I’m sure I paid just a little over SGD$50 for everything. Overall, not a bad way to bring you back to sobriety. *hic*
