Finally visited D.O.C after ages. Went to DOC for lunch during my intern times. Lucky us who made a reservation beforehand. It a pretty small area and gets really crowded during lunch hours. Decorated with wooden furniture and dim lighting. A warm and cozy feeling.
For their weekday menu, they have a mixture of brunch items and mains ranging from pasta to burger to pies to like chicken fillet. They also serve salads or other small bites. You can also choose a main with 2 choices of salad from over the counter. Choice of main – either poached salmon or roast chicken and choice of salads – garden salad, pasta salad or broccoli with herbs.
One of us ordered the main course with choice of 2 salad from over the counter. Another 2 of us ordered the smoked salmon scramble.
Poached Salmon with regular pasta salad & broccoli with herbs ($15): The appearance looks appetizing but taste wise was just okay. The poached salmon is alright, lightly flavoured with herbs. But the salads were disappointing. Broccoli with herbs is overpowered with the herbs taste and for the pasta salad, the pasta is undercooked, its a tad to hard.
Smoked Salmon Scramble ($16): The egg scramble taste very unusual from the ones i have tasted before. It looks creamy but doesnt taste creamy and instead it tasted milky to me. Something is just missing from the eggs. It tasted bland to me too. Not to my liking. ):
Luckily for our meal saviour. Buttermilk waffle with butter rum bananas ($15)! It cost as much as our mains! hahha. But well, at least the taste is good! Crisp fluffy waffle with caramelized rum bananas and scoop of vanilla ice cream to top it all! Thumbs up!
To sum it up, service of their friendly staff is good. Mains are not worth going for but dont miss their buttermilk waffle or you’ll regret!
