Hungry. In need of dinner at 10pm. Where would you go?
Robertson Quay is the place to be if you have no clue. That stretch of road along the Singapore River was absolutely packed on a late Friday night. Bar Bar Black Sheep was my first choice but since no table was available, we went to The Merry Men instead.
I’ve got to admit, The Merry Men is a nice surprise. I was expecting awful-if-not-average pub grub or something like that since this is more of a drinking hole than a proper eatery. But nope, I’m wrong. This cool chill out place dishes out delicious food (those we ordered anyway) at very reasonable prices (read: no GST or service charge)~
While waiting for the food, I was fooling around with the camera and look how gorgeous this random shot turned out!
Tagliatelle with prawns in squid ink sauce ($18).
Considering that the pasta ain’t homemade, this is still quite wonderful. The deep flavours and fresh prawns are awesome!
Escargot in mushroom shells with garlic butter ($14).
My first time trying escargots!! I know, WOLS me. This is really good, nothing slimy like what I imagined cooked snails to be. Texture is somewhat like mussels and the garlic butter topping is plain delish!
Pan roasted halibut, grilled asaparagus, tomato mango salsa, potato mash ($26).
Great execution, the soft meat simply melts in the mouth, yummmm.
Homemade tiramisu infused with frangelico a.k.a. hazelnut liqueur ($8).
Ok, so this may not be the best tiramisu I’ve ever tried. But a girl has got to have something sweet after a meal, ya. Decent stuff, kinda sourish like yogurt and the serving is huge so please share. Too much calories and sugar after 11pm can’t be too good, haha.
