Eighteen Chefs has opened another outlet at The Cathay! Whoohooo! If you read my blog, I previously blogged about Eighteen Chefs at Cineleisure . I'm happy to be invited again to try out a new set of food that they will be introducing. Now at The Cathay, you will have another option to dine at with so many f&b choices, you would definitely have a headache deciding where you wanna eat hahaha! The new outlet is located at the basement of The Cathay at Dhouby Ghaut. I have been a loyal "fan" of Eighteen Chefs since they opened their first outlet at East Point (Simei). Used to be my favourite place to chill after school!
Entrance Of Eighteen Chefs
The food tasting kicked off with a demonstration of teaching us how to make a perfect salad. We then got a chance to make our very own salad (provided if we follow the correct instructions). There was a mini-competition because we were separated into 2 groups! The winning team that makes the best salad gets a small token! I was paired up with Cheryl and Xue Ling.
Basically it's only 3 simple steps lah:
Picking the vegetables & ingredients
Seasoning the salad
Tossing the salad
It does not seem as easy as it looks. You will also need to have the "chef feel" in order to make the perfect salad! I was kinda skeptical because I do not know how much seasoning I'm supposed to add. You know sometimes if you add to little, then the salad will have no taste, or if you add to much then the flavour is too strong. So I guess you need to have the "instinct"!!
#team2 for the win!
*drum rolls* TAHHHDAHHH!! Salad ready to be served!
Chef Benny did the honor of tasting our salad! It's not some usual salad you know but the amount of ingredients they used are very generous. One of the premium ingredients are pine nuts which are very expensive in the market but extremely delicious and has it's health benefits because it's high in it's nutrition and also rich in vitamin A that helps you to boost your strength for your bones.
Vegetarian Aglio Olio
For the health conscious and vegetarian, Eighteen Chefs do offer vegetarian pasta!! Filled with hearty amounts of broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower and seasoned with Aglio Olio seasoning. For a price of $5.80, I feel that it is definitely value for money! The pasta was delicious and the taste of it was slightly peppery and it was full of it's flavour. Something that I would recommend you guys to try out! Remember to add the *cheese powder*!!
Dory With Lemon Caper Sauce
Craving for something creamy?! Well this has got to be one of your choice! The slice of dory fish is topped with fragrant lemon sauce which enhanced the entire taste of it. It was one of my favorite dishes and I would be coming back for more. Despite, small in portion the fish tasted fresh and succulent, it wasn't disappointing as I was highly enticed with the dish. It's something that I would be willing to spend on. The dory fish is also accompanied with generous amount of vegetables.
Eighteen Beef Burger
Next up, we have the tempting Eighteen Chefs Burger which is also one of their signature dishes. It was beef burger filled with tomatoes, potato wedges and salad! I have to praise this dish because the meat was soft and tender making it very easy to chew. The portion can be shared by 2 pax and you have got to try their chili sauce given! The burger simply makes me feel comforted and extremely satisfied. Lastly, it's not as oily as you think! *Thumbs Up*
Sambal Cheese Fries / Double Cheese Fries
To end off with the last dish, you got to try their sambal cheese fries as it is one of their popular side dishes. The amount of fries given is able to be shared among 3-4 people.
