Table 66: Restaurant Week

October 22, 2011 § Leave a comment

Finally, wagyu beef!

After being disappointed at Absinthe, I was so pleased to find wagyu beef on the set dinner menu for Restaurant Week at Table 66 that I was willing to overlook that it was a minute steak, i.e. thinly sliced steak seared on the grill for about a minute. I like my meat thick and juicy, but sometimes you just gotta accept what’s offered, eh? Hmm that sounded wrong. Anyway, I’m jumping too far ahead of myself.

Absinthe: Restaurant Week

The wagyu beef at this place is spectacular.

Apologies for the awful photos. I was using an iPhone 3GS and the lighting in the restaurant is very erm…romantic.

Wonton Skin Canapés

Does this sound familiar?

You bought a pack of wonton wrappers and made boatloads of dumplings and siew mai, but you still have half a pack of wrappers and cannot bear to face yet another steamed/deep fried ball of minced pork. What do you do now?

Why, invite a bunch of friends over for a canape party, of course!

I’m taking a break from the verbiage.

Instead, I’ll inundate you with (very belated) peekchures! Muah! Ha! Ha! Behold, eats from the Eng Land and er, French Land!

Borough Market — those are not made of plastic

Mushrooms & Lentils

I wasn’t sure what to call it.

But I’ve found another recipe to add to the slow carb collection.

Waking up peckish, I scoffed down 2 hardboiled eggs and thought about making a little something more. Since I had all of the ingredients on hand, I decided to make up a batch and save the extra for work lunches. I’ll probably pair this with sliced beef steak and salsa verde or chimichurri sauce.

Long Phung Vietnamese Restaurant

I’ve been getting a lot of massages lately.

A friend has recently been doing some research on spas in Singapore, so I gamely volunteered to help out with the “legwork”.

As I’m sure you all know, going to the spa is a thankless task and bloody hard work. *ahem* Certainly enough to build up a bear-sized appetite. Yet, after being thoroughly kneaded and scrubbed from head to toe, I was loathe to besmirch my squeaky clean self with oily greasy fare.

Butter Bean & Beef Frittata

Deceptively filling…

…Is what a beneficiary of a portion of the frittata called it. And in truth, it was.
