Had a semi-fancy lunch at Ochre with my colleagues a few weeks back!
I’m always a fan of nice restaurants (and who isn’t?) so this was a good break from my usual fish soup/chicken rice meals at work. :)
We all had the set lunch, which was surprisingly affordable for the quantity served. I chose the 4-course set which cost $45 (over the 2 & 3 courses) in a spate of gian peng-ness, and kinda regretted afterwards cos it was too much for my dainty stomach. /shameless but not really
Started off with the usual bread plus olive oil & balsamic vinegar thingy:
Always nice for me because I love balsamic vinegar but the bread was a bit stale.
The appetizer was a fancy sampler dish consisting of 6 unidentifiable bite sized things:
I managed to find out that the bottom right piece was ootoro, and the top left piece was a mushroom. Ha.
Anyway it tasted quite average too. The salad was fresh and crunchy and the rest was all acceptable but I didn’t think it was fantastic.
The appetizer was followed with a half serving of pesto linguine:
The pasta was a bit too soft and not al dente at all (trying to sound cheem yo), but I liked the soft greens and also the prosciutto ham. The saltiness was quite a good complement to the slightly creamy linguine.
Next up we have the main:
Pesto… again. While I question having 2 pesto dishes within the same set menu, I guess it makes economical sense for them. /shrug
Below the salmon, if you can spot in the photo, are mashed potato with assorted grilled (?) vegetables. I loved that! No so much the actual main of salmon though. Then again I’m not a fan of well-done salmon so I’m not the best judge. Why did I choose salmon then, may you ask? Because the alternative was beef… which I do not eat anymore FYI. (Unless it’s already ordered I will take a few bites but then I’m determined not to contribute to the demand.)
Ok. Last up the dessert, green tea tiramisu, was served:
Very soft, very creamy, very green tea, and very tiramisu. Of course it helps that tiramisu is my favourite dessert. The green tea powder on the top was slightly bitter which was perfect!
I will definitely come again. :)
