7107 Flavours, Marina Square

7107 Flavours, green mango juice

This place (6 Raffles Boulevard, #02-02 Marina Square tel : +65 6334 7107) was not bad. Sure things were a little pricey and service could be a little spotty, but I thought that the food more than made up for it. 

We might have gotten a little overboard here with all these dishes. Wasn't aware that the portions were so large. The flavours were definitely rich as well from the vibrant tangy tamarind of sinigang (there were 9 prawns in that soup!) to the artery clogging Taba ng Talangka which came across like a nutty and crabby gravy with consistency similar to satay sauces. That was actually described as sautéed crab fat in olive oil, garlic and calamansi juice. Adding to the heart burn was the kare kare stew in a thick peanut sauce which was relatively tasty but not as fragrant as I was hoping for. Pretty much everything we got today was telling me to chug along with extra portions of rice. Not forgetting the nicely done grilled squids stuffed with a tomato onion salsa with an enjoyable char. 

What did I not like so much about this place? I wished there were more than just one piece of oxtail in the kare kare as it was mostly tripe in the stew. The leche flan did reminded me of gulab jamun. Too damned sweet. I sure hoped that the generous amounts of freshly cooked vegetables and green mango juice helped offset some of that richness and cholesterol. But who am I kidding here......
