Upon entering The Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar, I was immediately mesmerized by the chic monochromatic interior. Exuding chic romantic vibes, it’s the place to go whether for a romantic date or a casual business lunch.

Other than the affordable 3-course set lunch available, there’s also quite a selection on their a la carte menu. Go for the wood fired tiger prawns from the entrees as you will be served 4 jumbo tiger prawns grilled till just right, exhibiting a delectable smokiness on the hot plate. The prawns had been de-shelled so you can simply enjoy them without dirtying your hands conveniently. The pairing chili butter was, in fact, sweet and slightly creamy, somewhat like a Thai chili base. Topped with some shoestring potatoes akin to potato sticks, but they were slightly soggy upon serving. Recommended to pair with some sides such as vegetables, potato purée or French fries.
