1-for-1 with #burpplebeyond!

Celebrated my dear friend’s birthday this year at @eatat.baste where the dining concept revolves around Modern Asian-tapas, marrying Asian and Western flavours.

Started off dinner with a cold dish, the truffle capellini served with olive vegetable, chives, and a familiar Japanese umami touch of ikura. What was tantalising was the addition of Goji berry, famous for its health benefits and used widely in Asian cuisine. Although it served more as a topping, the Goji berries were essential to deliver sweetness amidst the umaminess. The capellini was al dente, coated deliciously with the earthy truffle, and complemented by the deeply savoury, earthy olive vegetable. Never imagined the olive vegetable could be paired this way, since it is a specialty of Teochew cuisine.

Thanks to #burpplebeyond, we enjoyed 2 mains at the price of 1!
