Me and Daphne wanted somewhere peaceful and pleasant, and walking past Nude Restaurant a week before we thought it would be good for a Christmas Eve dinner. We're not Christians, no church for us, so we were pretty much merely indulging in the fun and commercialisation of it all. We remembered to make our reservations early too.
Ragout - IndoChine's French Beef Stew: 9/10
I wanted something warm and the beef stew sounded good, "Succulent beef, sweet potatoes and carrots delicately prepared to ensure robustness and richness in flavour". And it was a great choice indeed. Really rich and thick stew, the way I like it, very fragrant and not watery. The beef was so soft and tender, even my girl who dislikes beef found it good.
BBQ Chicken Set: 7/10
At first, it sure did look like something out of the jungle haha. Creatively designed for sure. The chicken was good, but Daphne found the chilli sauce far too spicy for her. We mixed the noodles with the chilli and probably we should have just kept it for the chicken. Very (or too) fresh salad, you can even see the plastic slices used to separate the veg, as though it was straight out from the fridge.
Ice Lemon Tea Cooler: 5/10
Maybe we didn't stir it properly, because while the first two sips were sweet, the rest of it was tasteless! Still, the sips being little, I guess there was too little sugar in this cooler.
$20 per person, the whole bill came out to just $45.
Orchard Wisma Atria, Level One
Western food also available. The couple next to us had fish and chips, and grilled chicken, both of which looked big and promising. For next time then!
