Xanderscopicqued


Dropped in at Basil Alcove for lunch. It's been over a month since my last visit and I was curious about what's abrew in this new place which I've realised, has received quite abit of cyberpress. Sunday Times did an article on it, so seemingly, news does travel fast in this small country. Especially if it's about food. Here's a couple of glances at what new storm the place has been whipping up in the new menu. The duck, the mackerel, the bratwurst and the ribs. I noticed that the presentation has improved.

The duck...

The mackerel...


The bratwurst...

The ribs...


The prices have been upped a little, but really, it's still within the realm of what I would consider very affordable. I'm not going to pinpoint any specifics since the cost of eating at this restaurant really speaks for itself. I just wished that the ribs had meat which I could easily strip off the bone with my fork.

Yah the food there was great, just had a visit last Friday for dinner with moi wife.

The only gripe was that the transparent plate or saucer for eating was pretty slippery and kept turning while we were having war with the ribs :p

Iwas there for lunch yersterday (Tue) when I learned that they only serve set lunches. How come you seems to have yours ala-carte ? VVIP ? :-)

Perhaps, I had a really late lunch....say maybe 6 'o clock late. Did I see the trickling of the rays of dusk into the photos there? Yeah, my memory is not so good these days. ;)

Hi Mia,
The mackerel is $8.8o if I do not recall wrongly. No, it doesn't totally taste like saba. I was thinking of that when I was eating it. Japanese saba's meat texture is more dense. This one is softer.
