The FAC celebrated Christina's birthday here since she was craving for western food. All of us had the set dinner which comprised of a soup, drink, main and dessert since it was very value for money. The soup of the day was crab bisque. Despite the unappealing colour, the bisque was surprisingly good with its thick, smooth and creamy texture.
The Oliv Mini Trio Meat Burger ($20.90+ for set dinner) is one of the signature dishes. There were grilled mini tenderloin steak, mini cod fish steak and "kong bah" pork stacked on mini burger buns with cheese and bacon served with mesclun salad and wedges. This is perfect for carnivores who want to try a little of everything!
The portion of the salmon pasta ($16.90+ for set dinner) was really generous. Likewise, my Dill Salmon with Coriander Dill Cream ($19.90+) came with 2 thick slabs of salmon. Too bad my camera died out on me at this point. You really need to see it to believe how large a portion I'm talking about.
I think there were only 3 desserts on the menu and we got to try all of them. Being a non vanilla lover, I didn't like the creme brulee. It seemed more like an eggy custard and there was scant taste of vanilla.
I liked the brownie as it was studded with lots of walnut pieces. Funny how I'm eating less brownies outside not that I know how easily it is to bake one. But it's always a good choice especially when the warm brownie is paired with a scoop of good ice cream.
The Muddy Mudpie was our favourite out of the 3. It was simple and the ice cream was smooth and creamy. The only grouse I have was that the chocolate sauce drizzled over it was not rich enough. Nevertheless, this beats the one from Coffee Club hands down!
Happy 21st birthday, Na! To many more food outings in future. I love you!
