On Sat, Brad aka ladyironchef organized a lunch at Dallas to commemorate his blog’s second birthday! Happy blog birthday, Brad! 🙂
This was the first of the 9-course tasting menu (S$23.00++ per person) Brad had arranged. The squid was tender and lightly battered. Although the salt and pepper were subtle, I thought the calamari was lovely!
The grilled quesadillas are thin tortillas stuffed with savoury chicken and cheese. Lovely partnered with zesty sour cream and creamy guacamole.
The shredded pork tasted like pulled meat from BBQ ribs. There was also shredded lettuce, tomato salsa and guacamole in the tacos.
Three kinds of ribs were served – Alabama, Fiery, Smoked Hickory (or was it Berry)? Unfortunately, there was confusion over which was which.
Anyway, my fav was the Alabama, which had a zingy sweetness due to the pineapple in the marinade. The other flavours were delicious too. If only the ribs were meatier!
The stringy fish was less than ideal, but I liked the naan jim dip. Similar to Thai sweet chilli sauce, but much nicer!
Too tough, too dry, and not much flavour. The wings tasted better paired with the naan jim dip rather than the ranch dipping sauce.
In fact, I commented that CP Mexican Wings are much better! LOL
I tasted the crab, but not much corn. Again, not much flavor, but a squeeze of lemon helped to perk things up.
There were comments that the beef tastes like rendang, but I actually enjoyed the flavourful, tender, and juicy beef very much! The accompanying tortillas were served soft and warm, which was great.
No, this isn’t a repeat serving of the corn crab fritters! The mushrooms were very juicy, but also quite salty cos of the stuffed cheese.
Despite having only one piece from each dish, all of us were filled to bursting point! The items we had are excellent bar food to go with drinks. I’d love to come back another day to check out the mains which seem to be reasonably priced.
