So foodie butterfly flew into the dimly kitted Crazy Bear Restaurant at 10.30PM on a Friday night. The manager was welcoming despite the unusual late time for a meal and of course we had to order the Tasting Menu Summer 2015.
Followed by shrimp balls (amazing texture and chewy) with tempura prawns.
Not only was it fresh and tasty, the Wasabi mayonnaise and garlic cream sauces that came with it gave the taste an extra kick!
Tiger prawns Pad Thai. One of my favorite choices out of them all. The prawns were succulent and flat noodles had the right tender and springy kick to them with bursts of flavour of nuts and lime to the right extent.
Kai Lan vegetables with oyster sauce. Slightly average but big enough portions and freshly stir fried.
Lastly, Tonka Bean icecream in a pool of hot chocolate syrup served with raspberries and strawberries. Simply delightful – the cold icecream complemented with hot chocolate that fills your mouth with bursts of varying temperature and flavour. Chocolate syrup wasn’t too sweet either and had the right amount of cocoa.
The entire taster menu was sampled with Malbec Red Wine from Argentina.
Four out of five ladybirds! Not every choice was perfect but the Tiger Prawn Pad Thai, Shrimp Balls and Dole fish definitely helped leave foodie butterfly leaving satisfied.
