this week’s specials, available from today, all day, and possibly all week or while fresh ingredients last
soup of the day: onion & quinoa bisque, sprinkled with dill
Had to look this one up. Le Kitchen Slugs like to cook things which Le Drivel Writer no understand. Le dictionary says quinoa (pronounced kin-wa) is “a goosefoot found in the Andes, where it was widely cultivated for its edible starchy seeds before the introduction of Old World grains“.
1) Simi si ‘goosefoot’?
2) Simi si ‘Old World grains’ ?
With a tippy-tap of le keyboard, le dictionary then explained goosefoot is “a plant of temperate regions with divided leaves that are said to resemble the foot of a goose. Some kinds are edible and many are common weeds“.
So there. We’re feeding you weed seeds.
And speaking of dill, we thought this was knee-slapping guffaw-inducing HI-LA-RIOUS
This week, instead of having a thing to share-share, we are introducing you a new menu item.
Introducing: The ULTIMATE Bangers & Mash
Ultimately, if you’re a Bangers & Mash fan, this would be like, the ultimate fantasy. The B&M to rule all B&Ms.
Featuring three studly bangers: German pork bratwurst, chicken chipolata, and spicy Italian pork & beef sausages. Handsomely sat atop Real Mash™, with sautéed onions and wholegrain mustard for merry accompaniment.
special main: Seafoodura Tempura Singapura
Beer-battered seafood and beans tempura, with a zingy garlicky taucheo sauce.
Simi si ‘taucheo’? Taucheo si soybean paaaaaste. (you must say this in a very aunty-aunty tone okayyyy)
Use fingers and dip-dip like this for full enjoyment. But if you want to use fork, also can, we won’t judge you.
dessert special: brûlée all-butter cake, with plump red wine poached plums
And a generous scoop of vanilla gelato topped with almond tar to top it all off
This is what we call “The Titanic shot”
