Cross Keys Wine Bar & Restaurant
117A Killiney Road
Wen Yi and I discovered this great place hidden on the 2nd level of the shophouses along Killiney Road. As it was still slightly early for dinner, we were the only ones there.
The set dinner ($18 nett) includes a choice of starter and main course. The Vitamin Salad has the usual avocado, grapefruit and orange segments with romaine lettuce, sprinkled with cheese and nuts. It was decent but nothing outstanding.
Wen Yi chose the Cream Dory Mexican Style as his main course. It was served with potatoes and spicy tomato coulis. The dory was fresh and went well with the coulis which was only mildly spicy.
I had the Grilled Cajun Snapper Fillet ($23 nett) which was also accompanied with potatoes and broccoli. The fish was very tasty as it was grilled with Cajun spices and fresh herbs. Another thing I like is that the broccoli was really fresh and green, unlike those wilted ones usually served at western eateries.
I really have to commend this restaurant. There is no GST or service charge here. Yet, the surroundings and ambience are comparable to that of any restaurants in town.
Service was excellent too. The waiter (whom I suspect is the owner) was very warm and friendly. Presentation of the food was beautiful and portions were generous. On top of that, DBS cardholders get 50% off ala carte main course.
