Cork & Screw
Cork & Screw is another dim lit bar selling alcohol and Western food options. We had plenty of orders for the night, so please continue to scroll to uncover pages of delightfulness from the night we had these. But as the truth goes, some were great, but others not so much.
Just like the Duck Confit on top, no jus were given. It wasn’t soft or tender-esque as we pictured it to be. This looked and tasted more like fried duck meat to be honest.
The Pork Chorizo on the other hand was pretty great, with its meat cooked not too long that the juice of it has gone out of the meat. Every bite bursts out spices that was absorbed by the pork chorizo chunks, clearly it was perfectly well prepared and cooked.
Thin strip Australian Sirloin, easily cooked and as expected it turned out superb. We asked for medium rare and it turned out just so.
The Truffled Mac & Cheese was something unique that’s worth trying it out for. The macaronis were tiny and it managed to soak within the cheese completely. It also was cooked with portobello so the cheesy sauce had an umami flavour with distinct truffle nodes all combined.
The Salmon Ravioli on the other hand was a lighter option as there wasn’t much of it. The taste of it was wonderful though, the salmon was almost steamed by being trapped within the ravioli. It was great because the meat being covered did not let air to escape and the flavour of the salmon was more robust that way.
I am more of a fan of the thigh portion of the chicken, but of course that’s a subjective matter. Do request for which parts you like before ordering.
A great night spent with these guys, childhood friends of mine. Can’t wait for another meet up, another food session to go to.
