Karma Kettle & Rhapsody
26B Dempsey Road
Dinner was decided to be at Dempsey Hill with Hui Yi, Qian Wen and Wen Yi. After considering the cluster of cafes and restaurants there, we went to this very homely and quirky decorated establishment.
We started with the Dutch Salad ($9.90++). Mixed greens are tossed with quail eggs, potatoes, beets, chickpeas, bacon bits and honey mustard dressing. I like the tangy dressing a lot! It gives a nice twist and flavor to the salad.
Our next starter was the Kathi Roll ($11.90++) recommended by Hui Yi. These are Indian wraps stuffed with chicken, bell peppers and red onions. The wraps are like the normal prata skin and a little oily but I like the chicken! The marinade makes it very fragrant and the chicken is tender.
The Sole Meuniere ($24++) is a traditional French dish of a New Zealand sole fillet served with brown butter sauce and lemon. This is good! The sole is nicely pan seared and juicy. But I think that the sauce tends more to the oily side, probably because too much butter was used.
The Cottage Pie ($14.90++) is another traditional dish. Prime lean beef mince, onion, carrots and Worcestershire sauce are baked with a mash potato topping. Everyone likes this! The fragrance hits you as it’s delivered to the table. The fillings are not too salty and the ratio of fillings to mash is well balanced.
We were surprised that we were the only diners there throughout our meal even though it’s a Sunday. The waiter told us that the traffic flow is rather erratic; the place can be a full house one day and quiet the next.
Diners can also buy the many pieces of paintings hanging on the walls.
