18 new foods you should try this week

So we’ve done a menu refresh once more! Thank you for unofficially ‘upvoting’ items that were once on the Specials menu in a previous life. Your constant nagging feedback has enabled them to rise from the ashes like a stubborn zombie and crawl their way into the regular menu. OK let’s get the foodporn rolling before this turns into yet another rambling, pointless blogpost…

Lamb Burger
We’ve renamed this The Green Lamburghini in the new menu.
It’s a char-roasted LAMB loin BURGer with zucHINI & fresh herb relish. Geddit? Geddit?? *self amuse >_< *
Hand-rubbed Pepper Ribeye Steak
Hand-rubbed Pepper Ribeye Steak, piled w mushrooms and melted cheese, drenched in our sekret Smokehouse beer gravy
Passionade Spritz
Passionfruit + lemonade + sparkling wine = Passionade Spritz
Perfect for those passionately hot days we seem to get a lot of lately.
high protein chia seed honey yoghurt
It’s what we call the perfect breakfast, chock-full of Superfoods: chia seeds, homemade yoghurt (yes we make our own yoghurt), honey, muesli, nuts and fresh-cut seasonal fruits.
Available all day, every day, from the time we open until we close shop. Yes you can have breakfast for dinner, who say cannot??
Nutella Hot Chocolate
Someone once commented, “Wah, the Nutella free one ah??”
When it comes to Nutella, you just have to go full-on hardcore. There’s no point being stingy.
Nutella Hot Chocolate – meant to be lip-smackingly messy.
Nutella Iced Chocolate
Ditto with the iced version
Nutella Iced Chocolate
All the pretty Nutella-slathered highballs, sat in a row.
Nutella Iced Chocolate WITH BACON
You can add bacon to anything, even a Nutella Iced Chocolate!
Someone on Twitter suggested this, and we thought ‘Hey why not!’ Turned out pretty awesome, to be honest.
"Umami" - considered by many to be the 5th taste (coz is not salty, not sweet, not sour, not bitter...) Umami has a mild but lasting aftertaste that is difficult to describe. It induces salivation and a sensation of furriness on the tongue, stimulating the throat, the roof and the back of the mouth. -Wikipedia Let us know how your taste receptors respond to our new Spicy Umami Marmite Veggie Pasta. Add chicken or shrimp for extra happyness.

Meatballs and beer cheese fondue
Unabashedly named “Totes Amazeballs” in our menu. We have no shame.
Totes Amazeballs is – you guessed it – a pile of battered meatballs (beef+pork) that works best when dunked in our sekret Smokehouse beer gravy. See next picture for eating instructions.
beer-battered meatballs and beer cheese fondue
As promised – How To Eat “Totes Amazeballs” in 2 easy steps!
We are trying too hard to be young, hip and relevant, hor? *sigh*
Pro tip: Wash it down with beer so you get a triple beer experience — beer battered balls, beer gravy and … ice-cold beer on its own.
masala chai tea latte
You know we have chai for staff tea break almost every day. We know some of you have been desperately lusting after it, willing to pay good money rather than slave for us to get a measly chai in return. (yes our Slugs works for chai, not cash)
OK lor, make for you lor. Add into the menu lor. Dun say we neh listen.
