It’s been a really busy month. And to think that I was so bored when I first started work, should have enjoyed the free time while I had it! In a way, now that I’m so busy, whenever I get the chance to have a nice meal, whether alone or with friends, I certainly appreciate it all the more now.
Recently, I got to do just that. Met with the ladies for a nice brunch at Supply & Demand. It’s not a new place, but a place which I’ve been meaning to try for quite some time. The first thing that struck me when I reach the restaurant was its decor. The restaurant is decorated all round with lots of quirky items, there was a lot of decor inspiration for my future home 🙂
We started with some starters. We had the sweet potato fries and the truffle fries with garlic. J had been here before and requested for extra garlic, which she claimed went really really well with the fries.
Next up, we had quite a few mains to share:
Provinciale pizza – tomato based, mozzarella, onion, mushroom, chicken, with a soft egg in the centre. For some reason, I quite like pizzas with a runny egg in the middle, I feel that it makes the pizza taste so much better.
Squid ink risotto – this was a big hit around the table. The seafood was cooked perfectly and so was the risotto
Al Granchio – pasta with crabmeat, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers sauteed in olive oil, white wine, chili, garlic, capers and parsley. Pasta done in the aglio olio style is always a hit or miss for me, but this was another hit, and a big one at that.
Pasta and clams in white wine sauce – the moment J had this, she announced that all us “alcoholics” simply had to have a taste of the white wine, where you could really taste the wine. Indeed, she was right – it was full of flavour, full of acid, it was “shiok”
We also got something from the weekend brunch menu – coddled eggs over pasta, served with salmon and cheese on toast. Among all the dishes, we felt that this was the one we liked the least. The eggs were over cooked, especially the yolks and overall the dish was pretty bland.
Of course, we couldn’t go away without have the desserts. J insisted that we need at least two of each, but we bargain it down to three individual desserts – the tiramisu, rocky mess (a mixture of fruit, brownie, ice cream and caramel) and the chocolate cake. Nothing spectacular, but a really nice way to end off the meal.
Among all the dishes here, we felt that the pasta and pizzas were the stars. We were very impressed with all their pasta dishes and we had 3! (if you count the risotto). Definitely a good place to hang out with friends. Service was awesome and the staff were very accommodating with our numerous requests.
