Located along a secluded alley of Dickson Road in the district of Little India, nestled the least expected Roots Kitchen & Bar, an European Restaurant. With an unpretentious exterior leading you into an interior made of bricks walls and wooden furniture brings about a charming rustic ambiance.
One of the best thing at Roots Kitchen & Bar is their menu. Featuring sumptuous dishes starting with some brunch food to starters and side shares followed by mains and desserts all at pocket friendly NETT prices! This has definitely set them apart from the typical more costly European Restaurants.
Egg & Truffle Mousseline topped with Cavier ($4). Smooth egg mousseline served in cute egg shell on a primitive egg carton brings our memories back to the good olden days for a split moment. It has a mashed potatoes alike kind of sandy mouthfeel and lingering traces of truffle with a blend of earthy taste from the mushrooms.
Loaded Sweet Potatoes Fries ($15) with truckloads of feta cheese, jalapenos and minced meat! A slight twist made to the usual crispy sweet potatoes fries was the melty cheese and exploding surprises in its flavors. A little sweetness from the sweet potato with a hint of kick from the jalapenos.
Ocean Crab Pasta ($18). Fine thread like pasta tossed and coated with rich umami flavored lobster bisque was served with generous servings of fresh shredded crabmeat. The pasta was cooked right to perfection with each thread sealed with the flavor of the sea. Definitely a like for seafood lover!
Nagano Pork Rack (200g, $27) revealing a refreshing compote of pickle sweet braised cabbage, mustard seed and grape that brightens the flavors of the pork rack. The pork rack with a pinkish center is tenderly soft and easy to swallow. One of the better pork rack in town i would say!
London Broil ($22). Flank steak done medium with a slight chewiness to it. Accompanied by red wine jus, smooth potato puree and some root vegetables! Flavors of different food has complimented well all within this one dish.
It was definitely a hearty dinner with such lip smacking delicious dishes and such good food has definitely been made more accessible with the new Rochor Mrt Station!
Recommended 4/5 🙂
