The mere mention of “Thomson Road” heralds me back to my adventures (including misadventures) in Singapore. I feel that road is quite distinct to that land. And for the multiple times that I’ve gone there, I have definitely passed by that road multiple times too. So it was quite interesting to see its name on a restaurant. But what’s more interesting are the dishes offered at this bistro.
Since I have a messed up body clock ‘coz of my work schedule, I always dine at off peak hours; hence, the lack of people at this place. It’s one of the newer restaurants in the south which are always welcome to the hungry folks here. Its interiors were quite simple and casual. I especially liked the art on the wall which is pleasantly striking to diners here.
I was surprised by this for it was one huge cup! And a cold one at that too since it was served in a big metal cup. I did find it to be too milky for my liking. Or maybe I just really prefer the Taiwanese type of milk tea.
The taste of coconut was very rich on this soup. You might not see it on the photo but this one had noodles, shrimp, fish tofu and fish cakes. It was mildly spicy which balanced and paired well with the taste of the coconut. The additions were very tasty too. I liked the fish tofu and wished there were more. 😛
This was served a little late. We ordered two servings of this thinking that it was of normal size. But man, one piece was huge! I couldn’t show it on the photo but yeah, one order could’ve been enough. I liked how they didn’t scrimp on the ingredients here. Each siomai was filled with pork, mushroom and my fave, shrimp.
Their Roasted Pork Bun has got to be my fave dish for that day. You could either order a single serving (P145) or the double as shown above. The pork was really tender and flavorful. I actually didn’t mind eating the fat for it seemed to have melted away. The bun itself was pretty good too. Can’t wait to have another round of this in the future 😉
They’re still on soft opening, and only have a few items on their menu. But that’s a good thing as most dishes seemed to be carefully curated. In terms of price range, it does border on the pricey side (they have a fish dish priced at P750. Say whutttt). BUT you do get quality and great-tasting food. I do wish they’d come up with more dishes in the future as this bistro does show promise. Once they have new items, I’ll surely head straight here to have more of that and yes, to have more of the buns. 😛
