The media invite clashed with another event I had so I felt quite morose, but fortunately, once again, Makan Fairy Godmother came to the rescue, and with one fell swoop and wave of her wand, presto, we were rescheduled for another day.
The concept is really quite simple. According to the press release, it's meant to be a compact version of Delicious (yes, did I mention they are from one and the same family? The Delicious group), concentrating on bestselling items.
Not quite something for the indecisive I can foresee. Fortunately, I usually can zero in on exactly what I want, by simple process of elimination of things that I know for sure I don't want. More women should learn to think and reason like me.
- Dry Tossed Sambal
- Simply D Laksa
- Chilli Chicken Pastamee
- Vietnames Salmon Pho
- Beef short ribs herbal soup
- Salted Egg pumpkin
- Roasted Garlic & Sundried Tomato Aglio Olio
- Teriyaki Salmon
- Sweet Basil & Cashew Nut Pesto
- Spiced Red Pepper and Tomato
and a choice of
Linguine, Angelhair, Spaghettini, Flat White Noodles, Fusili, Soba Noodles, Yellow Mee....
with a further choice of add ons of
Chargrilled chiken, ikan bilis, grilled lamb kofta, shaved parmesan, smoked salmon, spicy chicken sausage and tea egg!!!
Anyway, since there were only 3 of us, it would not have been possible to try too many items although that still didn't stop Samantha Sam, the Assistant GM of Marketing & PR of the Delicious Group, from going overboard and ordering WAYYY too much food.
I loved the herbally flavour and the firm texture of the soba, which I think was buckwheat. I'd definitely go for the broth again!
Caesar Salad With Tea Egg... the Caesar salad is conventional enough, and the tea egg gives it that slight herbal tinge, but not very noticeably. I wouldn't mind if they had those Japanese boiled eggs, where the yolks are still golden and runny, but the whites cooked.
Love the casualness of this place and the very novel idea of the food and drink combinations. Yes, you can do the same for drinks, choose a style, and choose a flavour, and I had the peach tangerine iced tea, which was marvellously refreshing.
Oh, and as a parting thought, if you add the add ons in the permutations and allow any number of add ons in any combination, apparently the formula for number of possible outcomes is 11x7x(77). (Special thanks to my Actuary friend who works nearby there, for the formula)..which totals 63.4 million combinations.
