(Part 4 of 4)

Paired with the spread of dishes that night, I had one of their specialty cocktails. Containing Rum, Bailey's and loads of Milo, this was chocolatey, decadent and provided much needed sweetness in between the savoury dishes. It tasted just like your traditional Milo Dinosaur but much more 'gao' (thick), creamy (Likely due to the Bailey's) and of course, alcoholic. The roasted marshmallow atop was hard and chewy when I finally ate it at the end. However, it still had that distinct caramelised taste reminiscent of a well roasted marshmallow. Hence, it may perhaps taste much better if you eat it soon after it's served. While Le Coq may not offer any desserts, this is definitely a worthy substitute.

All in all, I had a fantastic dining experience filled with great food and company. Contrary to some google reviews, the ambience that day was quiet enough for conversation. However, this may partly be due to the current viral outbreak, leaving the restaurant surprisingly vacant. My tastebuds were blown away consistently throughout the meal with the top dishes going to the Hot Uni Spaghetti ($22++), Beef Crispy Rice ($28++), Dry Laksa ($16++) and signature Roast Chicken ($16++). Yes, there are this many top dishes and I will more than gladly, devour all of them if given the chance.
