Well, lunch wasn’t exactly at the park. Instead, we had it a the “container” looking thing near HSBC and Starbucks at Holland Village. It’s a gastro bar called “Park” (facebook page here).
I must say that the design is pretty interesting. It has an indoor and outdoor dining choice – and both are pretty cooling. But, given the space constraint, the area is rather narrow. It might not be the place for big groups. It’s seems good for a weekend chillax session.
An idea might be to have acoustic performance on weekend nights on their space outside… People can just have chairs and beers, no need for tables. What do you think?
Tuna Tartate – Bluefin tuna with avocado mousse, cold angel hair pasta, tobikko and mushroom confit. Ryan was initially disappointed because there wasn’t as much squid ink as he hoped but he actually liked it in the end.
Pulled Pork Burger – Shredded Pork cooked in brown sauce and balsamic caramelised onions on sesame seed bun. It sounds sooo good on the menu. Look at that size! You can choose to have it with 2 sides too – so I chose fries (3 stars) and mesclun salad. It was good but not fantastic, though.Here’s Margie’s Truffled Mac and Cheese. The whole reason why we came here. It looks petite but it’s quite filling.
I’d say that the food is good and decent. Given the location and the concept, it’s a reasonable price. However, it’s not something I’d crave to go back to – except maybe for those random Saturday brunch cravings (since it’s near my friend’s place).
And, we successfully managed to take a group photo. Yay! We don’t usually do so this is a rare opportunity.
