A sorta ‘newish’ food establishment has been making waves in our little red dot. You know what? I’m loving our little red dot more each time! I love that there are plenty of food choices that we are spoilt with here in our little island. There are so many new places that have sprung up the last couple of years, wait, make that months that I have yet to check out. There simply isn’t enough time for me to eat my way before we head back to Geneva (that’s exactly in 2 weeks). Sigh!
A date was set to meet with Delly. She initially suggested that we check out a French restaurant and I mildly protested. Enough of French/Italian fare if possible for I really want to just stuff my face silly with local and Jap fare. So we met middle ground when I suggested that we check out Wok & Barrel. I’ve read reviews and tweet peeps were talking about this Bak Chor Mee pasta that piqued my interest when I was in Geneva.
You see I really love my Bak Chor Mee (Minced pork noodles) loads.. give that to me any time of the day and I lap it up with joy.. make mine with extra chilli and vinegar please! So when I heard about this modern twist of Bak Chor Mee to pasta, I really wanted to give it a try and see if it’s even wildly possible for me to replicate this when I crave for this when we return back to Geneva.
Verdict? I liked the dish… it was of course an unusual twist our local hawker fare and I liked the fusion adaption using pasta and shredded pork to make the dish. Would I be able to replicate this? I doubt it but I’ll play around with the ingredients and the sauces to come up with my very own fusion-version of this dish.
Overall, it was a great place for a nice casual mid-week dinner with the girlie who’s definitely going places in her career. I liked the relaxed ambience and the yummy beers that are available on their menu. My current fave beer? The Hitachino Nest White Ale.. couldn’t resist the packaging for this yummy Japanese beer.Wok & Barrel
