Lobsters, scallops and venison at The Market Grill

The Market Grill, Telok Ayer

This was (one of) our Christmas-y year end lunch. We came over to The Market Grill because they had venison. Like the one we had a couple of years back.

The Market Grill, scallops

We splurged a bit. Got some starting scallops which were really good. The exterior was well caramelized with the char flavour. The insides were of medium doneness. Scallops were small but packed with flavour.

Ordered their steamed lobster to get the most out of the flavour from the crustacean. So good dipped into the garlic butter. Those mashed potatoes on the side were also buttery-ly delicious.

Venison was overcooked today. I asked for medium rare and this obviously wasn't. Didn't expect such shoddiness from them. But I forgive them because the outcome was so satisfying. Great caramelization on the exterior along with a spiced blackberry jus. I'm feeling the justification for how much they charged for the loin. Roasted bone marrow was a bonus and that carrot puree thing on the side was also outstanding.
