54 Club Street
Lunch was lovely today! Since Yong Rui was driving, we made our way to Club Street which houses several well-known eateries.
Eden Café specializes in floral cuisine and the menu features interesting items like hibiscus tea and cheesecake.
The Saffron Cream Salmon ($18.90++) is really excellent, awesome, fantastic and more! Being a salmon lover, I could not resist ordering it after reading raving reviews about it. Boy, I’m so glad I went with my gut feeling. The salmon comes with a generous fresh and colourful salad, and Portobello mushroom. Note to self: request for NO mayonnaise dressing on the next visit. I had to scrap off the mayonnaise tediously. By then, Yong Rui was already halfway through his meal.
I couldn’t have asked for a better execution of the salmon. It’s very smooth and tender, with the middle still slightly pinkish raw—exactly the way I like it. The saffron cream is also a star by itself. Neither too thick nor heavy, the cream does not overwhelm the delicate flavor of saffron which, by the way, is the most expensive spice in the world. I also like the Portobello mushroom—very juicy and has a rich and strong earthy flavor. It helps that this is my favourite mushroom of all time because of its beefy texture.
For the price paid, the portion is more than reasonable. The slab of salmon is huge and the mushroom is easily more than the size of my palm. I love everything about this! I’m sure all my future salmon meals will be spoilt by this exquisite dish.
The Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta with Prawns ($13.90++) is basically pasta that is fried lightly with chilli, parsley, garlic and sun-dried tomatoes. Grilled prawns give the finishing touch to this simple yet flavorful dish.
