"Live-firing" @ Chef Daniel's Kitchen

Cake hunting has slowed down, backlogs start to accumulate and tonnes of photos to be post-processed. July has been a busy month but in a positive manner.

What makes is busy and pleasant is to meet up with good-old friends and one of the group is the bubbly bunch of foodies.

Organized by Harris and Glenn within a week, this is not only to catch up with the other foodies but also a farewell lunch for Loraine. If you have followed her blog, you will know that she has migrated to Netherlands.

Ok, back to the food topic... Hmm... $10.50 nett for a set lunch sounds good for gatherings and defnitely minimizes hassle when the bill comes. Rooftop dining gives the extra value-add.

Chef Daniel

High ceiling with earth tones, the first thing that strikes you as you enter the restaurant is its generous space. The spaciousness comes through the clever use of glass panels, allowing the restaurant to be well-illuminated with nautral lighting.

Nature is another feature since the rooftop is decorated with flora and fauna, exuding a mix of contemporary and resort atmosphere.

The set lunch comes with a bowl of soup, free-flow bread, a main course of your choice and desserts.

Beef Burger with Cheese

Yuan settled with the Grilled Beef Burger which he felt was very moist with resemblance of a bolognese. Being a carnivore, Yuan felt that the patty has more fillers than meat.

Fish and Chip

As for Fish & Chips, I thought it was average. On the positive note, it was not so oily.

Raspberry Mousse

Dessert of the day is a combination of raspberry mousse and vanilla sponge, providing a sweet and slight tangy note.

Pardon for the lack of description but in such outings, it is always the laughter, the conversations and the clicking of cameras that leave a deeper impression. Ultimately, a meal does not need to taste fantastically good when it is coupled with a lovely bunch of diners to make it memorable.
