Get The Best Of Both Worlds: Savour Asian & European Fare At This Restaurant
What Makes It Awesome?
If you're looking for the best of two worlds when it comes to dining out, then head to Dirty Apron for their all-new Winter menu. These two worlds combine Europe and Asia and comfort food with fine dining sensibilities, it's all there. Dirty Apron is best known for their whisky sours and ingenious Eurasian dishes, and this winter, they've upped the ante with very unique food that hits the right spot. We had a long, lazy meal there the other day and marvelled at how pretty the dining space looks during the evening. And once the food came, everything else was inconsequential. We started with two of the finest soups we have had in a long time, the cosy and creamy, Saffron and Corn soup and the even better, Bacon Potato and Spinach soup, which had a base of gorgeous, rich Japanese dashi, not an easy feat, but there it was in all its splendour. Early on advisory - Don't fill up on soups! Since the salads here have always been legendary, we had to try them. Don't miss the Baked Brie, Roasted Beetroot, and Apple Salad; the crunchy baked cheese with soft beets and juicy apples makes for a delightful combination, the dressing is subtle so you can taste each element individually. We also loved the Pomelo and Raw Mango salad that we chose to have with prawns, which were warm. I love hot and cold foods together, so this one was our second favourite. Our starters were a whole other level of culinary discovery, we had a giant Vol-au-vent, which is a puff pastry casing that's usually bite-sized, but this one could easily serve two or more, and it was filled with minced lamb kofta topped with gorgonzola Greek yogurt, lightly spiced and creamy, all at once. Then came the Fried Squid, make sure you add a glass of wine or a cocktail for this one, it's perfect bar food, also this is served with a delicious Teriyaki mayo, in case you were missing the Asian element in this meal. We moved on to the main course with a moist, luscious sandwich, that was in a house-made pita-style bread and the filling was Southern Fried Chicken and Truffle cream cheese. My personal recommendation for the main course has got to be the Grilled Pork Belly with a Soy-Mirin Glaze that comes with sticky rice and its veggie cousin, the Miso Vegetables Sticky Rice Donburi. I would keep going back even if these were the only two dishes on the menu. Finish the meal with their decadent desserts, we ordered Yogurt Panna Cotta with peaches, it was surprisingly creamy and not tangy at all, and the Very Very Boozy Tiramisu, well, because very very boozy is always a good thing.
What Could Be Better?
It would be great if they open for lunch which I’ve heard is going to happen soon.
