Affordable Restaurant Food

I eat for pleasure.. And at times you want a place where you get food that's a little bit finer than usual.

Slow cooked Iberico pork ($48++).

This dish would showcase the culinary skills of talented Executive Chef Fernando Arevalo. The pork was slow cooked for 24 hours (if I remember correctly!) before grilling it with a squid ink crust. That explains the black and crispy exterior you're seeing here.
🔸
This delightful Iberico was served with cognac apple, apple compote, buttered turnip, dolcemente and almonds. Taken during a tasting.

[New Menu] Iberico Pork Rack ($30++).

This Iberico pork rack is surprisingly moist even though the loin part was used, and this is testament of Chef Bryce @brycelimg13 culinary skills.
🔸
It is grilled to a nice smoky finish before serving with apple cous cous, natural pork jus, sautéed garlic chives with dried shrimps, and topping off with Asian chimichuri. The pork loin also has strips of fats that's flavourful and melty, though more guilty. I like to cut through and have both the lean and fatty so I get both the fragrant fatty oils to mix through the leaner parts of the pork.
🔸
Thanks Chef Bryce for inviting us to taste your wonderful new menu. I love the new lineup!

[New Menu, 50% Promotion Available] Tin Hill Rangers Valley Black Angus Brisket Burger ($28.50).

🔸
This is one of their signature meals, using Rangers Valley Brisket which is one of the favorite labels of beef from Chef Michael’s home country of Australia. It has a medium fat consistency for a brisket so there is more meat for the smoke to seep into. The process was painstaking - 4 days to brine, 12 hours to smoke with hickory and hay, and another 3 days to sous vide. This is to retain flavor, and the result is juicy and super soft beef brisket. Wow. And it was served with this super addictive sweet potato fries.

@tinhillsocial is also running a promotion now. You can be entitled to a 50% off for a $100 dining voucher. DM me for details.

Dehesa Octopus ($28).

Out of the eight courses I had, this octopus was my favorite dish. Octopus tentacles were sliced and crowned with lardo, which was torched to bring out the flavour of the cured fat.
🔸
The savoury succulent octopus was contrasted by the bed of finely chopped potatoes which were lifted by zest, so I really enjoy eating the lardo, octopus and potatoes all in a single mouth. I'm a fan of grilled octopus, and I find this to be one of the better ones around.

Roasted Cod ($34++).

Served with broccoli rabe, the fish is chunky, tender while retaining a good bite. What's interesting is the gravy which is being poured here - it's a concoction of spicy herbal coconut broth. It's somewhat like a tom kha broth (think: tom yum that's milky), so you're getting a Thai influenced dish here. Interesting.

Signature Char Siew ($14).

This char siew was really good. The pork belly was glazed in honey soy, and you get tender meat coated in sticky sweet and savory sauce.
🔸
This is also the last week for their 1 for 1 steak promotion available in July. Choose from 220g pasture fed wagyu ribeye or 180g Black Angus tenderloin for this promotion, and two steaks would only be $35++.
🔸
It's only available during dinner, and that's also the timing I would recommend you to visit, because the lunch crowd can be overwhelming.

Beef Tagliata ($30 for 200g, lunch menu).

I didn't realise Luka serves steaks, and they do a good one with an alluring scent of charcoal on the exterior. It might not be wagyu but this is a good Australian wagyu meat that was juicy and sweet. Need this again!

[New Menu, 50% Promotion Available] Roast Sweet Potato, Goat’s Cheese, Kale, Thyme Infused Honey, Quinoa, Black Garlic Puree, Hazelnuts ($24.50).

I was very happy with my dinner last night at Tin Hill Social, where I also discovered that many of their ingredients are foraged or farmed on their own.
🔸
This dish in particular is a great vegetarian main course, or it's also good as a sharing dish. The roasted sweet potato is salt baked on a bed of rock salt, skin on, to infuse all the natural flavors of the sweet potato. The black garlic are made in house, which took a process of *6 weeks*. This is so that the natural sweetness could be slowly caramelized out of the garlic.

Five spiced sous vide duck breast ($36).

I love this main course too. The duck meat was tasty; the skin was thick, fat and juicy; and the five sliced seasoning went very well with duck in roasted duck jus.
🔸
Served with pumpkin puree, vegetable succotash and blood orange emulsion. Taken during a tasting hosted by @porticosg.

Smoked Eel ($26).

This is shot on the rooftop of CapitaGreen where Artemis is located, from which you get a beautiful view of the city and the Marina.
🔸
This is my recommended starter here, which is actually succulent and tender smoked eel chunks mixed with white asparagus, forest mushrooms and those beautiful garlic flowers. What's interesting are the "salty fingers" sprouting out of concoction, they're salty and bitter, balancing the whole dish. It's good!

1-for-1 Steak ($35++ for two steaks).

Choose from 220g pasture fed ribeye or 180g Black Angus tenderloin for this promotion. I thought the price is awesome.
🔸
Pictured is the Black Angus tenderloin topped with foie gras (additional $8). No complaints at $17.50++, except that I wish it's available for lunch too.. It's only available during dinner.

Duck Breast ($33).

Definitely our favourite main course that evening. We were all impressed by this duck breast, so well marinated they we could taste the sauces within the flesh, which also naturally had a foie gras taste. Chef Jérémy's talent in showcasing fresh produces to their best was also evident through the accompanying chestnut mash, porcini cream and sautéed mushrooms here.
