After Cherie's pizza birthday party, we explored the Bukit Timah area- first going to a hipster cafe then milling around Lorong Kilat and stumbling upon this quiet place for dinner.
A staff handed out a pamphlet as we walked by Table @ Pip's. Prices looked pretty reasonable. And the smell of the meats on the grill strategically placed right outside the restaurant got our attention.
Here's what we had.
Pip's Garden Green Salad ($5.90). To find walnuts, rocket leaves and dried cranberries in the salad at this price was great. I was half-expecting iceberg lettuce. Moohehe. Decent though under-salted.
Also good for sharing around the table is Potato Skin ($3.90). These strips of crispy potato skins drizzled with sour cream were fun to eat.
From the Weekly Specials menu on the table standee, the Seafood Risotto ($24.90) featured a nice mix of prawn, seabass, mussels and squid cooked with creamy risotto grains. Didn't quite take to the raw grassy notes from the pea shoots though. Yes, yes. I hear you. Cows should eat grass. :p
Also on the Weekly Specials menu was the Seabass Arabbiata ($19.90). Ribbons of homemade fettucine were coated in a spicy tomato sauce with a good balance between the heat of the chillis and the tang and sweetness of the tomatoes.
Dinner was enjoyed with a bottle of Cellier Yvecourt Bordeaux 2009 ($60.50). Juicy red fruits dominated. Simple and easy drinking.
At this mooment, I need to apologise.
I skipped desserts for a bowl of noodles and pork porridge at Bukit Timah Hawker Centre instead. MOOHAHAHA. There's a Durian Chocolate listed on Pip's menu that sounded intriguing though!
It felt somewhat nostalgic and happy to be back roaming that part of Bukit Timah with poly pals just like we did over 10 years ago. :)
