10A Upper Wilkie Road
The restaurant is situated inside Hangout Hotel at Mount Emily. It’s definitely not an easy place to find and Zhi Peng and I spent 20 minutes walking here. A good way to work up an appetite!
Complementary bread was served.
I didn’t try since it’s not the “hard” kind of bread I like. The olive oil dip tasted fresh though.
The Pan-Fried Catfish with Green Curry Sauce and Black Olive Rice ($25.80++) is delicious. I requested to replace the rice with crabmeat mash and I’m glad I did! Initially I thought they will use those types of frozen crabsticks which I don’t like but I was wrong. Real fresh crabmeat was used and it was in chunky bits and not minced finely. The flesh of the catfish was soft yet firm, and the mild spiciness of the sauce goes well with it.
The Braised Lemongrass Ginger Lamb Shank with Roast Garlic Potato Mash ($27.80++) is nice too. The lamb was not overcooked and was tender and juicy. I like that the mash has small cubes of potato in it instead of being a smooth paste. The cubes really give a good texture and bite to the side dish.
One minor flaw was that the menu was limited. But I guess the chef just want to stick to doing the dishes he does best.
Do make a reservation before coming because judging from the full house, this place is certainly not wanting of customers despite being in such an inaccessible place.
