|…and I had a happy boy with me so can’t complain much!|
So what did we have?
The yellow fin tuna poke was a hit (SGD18). It looked and tasted like a mini timbale of a quasi modern twist on the classic tuna tartare.
Plaid Boy chose the potato gnocchi (SGD18) over the pork belly which was fine by me. The sauce had mushrooms, spinach, roasted garlic and dollops of pumpkin ricotta. I normally prefer marscapone for pasta sauce and ricotta for desserts but this was gooooood. The gnocchi itself was steady albeit a bit too filling. I would love, love, love to recreate the sauce at home using a lighter pasta like cappellini or tagliardi.
I ordered an ‘individual’ serving of the Spanish octopus salad (SGD18) which arrived plentiful and was actually good enough to share between two to three people. I’m not a fan of sous-vide cooking but the octopus came out so tender and so moist! It had a pleasant smoky flavour and I can only imagine how delicious this would be if they used baby octopus. Plaid Boy claimed this dish as the surprise of the night. I’d have to agree.
Of course we had to order the grilled aussie rib-eye (SGD38) with Spathe’s garlic fries.
I caved in to Plaid Boy’s medium rare request because I am a good girlfriend had zero expectations (as I’ve said before, I’m a sucker for rare steak).
The beef was good in the most unassuming way you can describe good steak. Seasoned appropriately and served with some herby butter, this was my favourite dish of the night. The garlic fries were pretty good too!
Three ‘Spathé Classics‘, a salad and a glass of full bodied red later, I was too full for dessert so we passed on pudding (we did have some mini Magnums a few hours later though). That ordering guide was pretty accurate! Our total bill came to about SGD120 (roughly £60) which I thought was a pretty good price for two full happy bellies.
