Tonight I am invited to a food tasting event at this restaurant by OpenRice. Although the restaurant is located in TripleOne Somerset, which is just walking distance from the MRT station, most people are still quite lost with its location. The building is more commonly known as PUB building to the local Singaporeans. Most will remember going to the building to pay water bills in the past. The restaurant is located at the first floor, just next to the entrance facing Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Orchard.
The restaurant offers North American Cuisine (consists such as Canadian cuisine, American cuisine, Mexican cuisine and Central American cuisine) and changes its menu seasonally. The restaurant also has a bar which serves a wide spread of drinks. The restaurant is decorated in black tones and American style but in a modern way.
Baja Cobb’s Salad ($19++)
An almost mexican salad ! Cajun spiced chicken, eggs, beans, bacon, olives, corn, mixed greens, watercress, tomatoes, avocado, blue cheese and house vinaigrette.
Such a big serving and with a bit of everything, everyone is remarking that it is a great and filling one dish meal. From the crispy bacon, to the juicy chicken and crispy greens, it is such an explosion in my mouth.
Superfood Salad ($18++)
Quinoa, broccoli, chick peas, blueberries, capsicums, avocado, baby spinach, herbs, pomegrante & pumpkin seeds, citrus vinaigrette.
It is a huge plate of greens, which frightens off the guys. I like the use of quinoa in the salad which makes it quite filling. The pomegrante has juicy and popping effects in the mouth.
Blackened Fish Taco ($16++)
Avocado mayonnise, pickled onions, crispy shallots, cotija cheese and cliantro jalapeno watercress salad on tortilla shell.
With so many toppings (especially the tangy tasting, pink-colored pickled onions) on top of the juicy Haddock fish fillet, it opens my appetite for the meal.
Pan Seared Foie Gras ($19++)
Pain de mie, chocolate ganache, bacon jam, caramelized bananas and granola crumbs.
The bacon jam is interesting with bits of chewy bacon in it. The caramelized bananas has a melt in the mouth taste. Together it is a great combination. But the levels of lighting in the restaurant is quite poor, and we could barely figure out what we are eating.
SFC Seasons Fried Chicken ($25++)
Succotash and deviled ranch dressing and homemade catsup.
The fried chicken is quite spicy with lots of different spices in it. I feel that the ranch dressing is a bit too overpowering to go with it, whereas the the catsup is a nice touch to it.
Season’s Cheese Burger ($25++)
Homemade 200grams beef patty, stripy jack cheese, brioche bun, pickled jalepenos, caramalized onions, bacon, mushrooms, catsup and mustard with fries.
It is served on a big wooden chopping board. I feel that the patty could be more juicy. The bun which is freshly by next door Imperial Treasure Bakery, is quite soft and pillowy. But I am more turn on by the melt in the mouth caramlized onions on top of the patty.
Jerk Spiced Pork Meatloaf ($29++)
Maple Bacon, Spinach, Mashed Potatoes & Gravey.
The meatloaf tastes a bit dry but filled with different spices. The creamy mash potatoes is a great balance to the dish as it makes feel not so dry after all. The gravy has a chocolatey taste to it.
Roasted Lamb Rack ($32++)
Baked potato, Asparagus, Brussel Sprouts, Veal Jus, Mint Pesto.
Currently this dish is not in the menu, but will be offered in the upcoming Valentine’s Day dinner menu. The lamb is juicy and not too gamey in taste. The veal jus that is served with it has a chocolatey taste, while the mint pesto has a garlicky taste which I like very much considering that I do not like mint much. The potato has been mashed and mixed with other seasonings and cheese before baking. It tastes creamy and soft.
Southend Pasta ($22++)
Homemade tomato sauce, tagliatelle, own chorizo sausages, fennel, tomatoes, basil, chilli & loads of parmesan.
It is not too spicy despite having chilli in it. But the taste of the chorizo sausages is a bit too strong for me.
Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake ($12++)
It is served with strawberry, blueberries and cranberry cream. The cheesecake is creamy and does not taste too sweet. The cranberry cream is fruity sweet with bits of fruits in it, which adds another taste to the simple looking cake.
Miss D’s Pecan Pie ($12++)
Comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Filled with huge pieces of pecan nuts, it is nutty and not too sweet. But the crust is quite hard to cut through with a fork.
Overall the dishes are great and huge in servings. Best for people who come in groups and can share the huge servings with all. Further more, it is located in such centralised location which should be easy for most to go.
