Have you guys heard of Shelter In the Woods? Well, I did not until last night. At a networking session held by Lexus at its car showroom on Leng Kee Road, the restaurant catered all the grub. When the emcee first announced dinner was to be provided by Shelter In the Woods, my immediate thought was a hipster cafe. And so it couldn’t be all that good. Yours truly, the country bumpkin, could not be more wrong! From the Canapes provided throughout the evening to the little plates of main course, every dish was excellent. I also learnt during the evening that a dinner at the restaurant was not cheap: around $80 per pax. That’s fine-dining! No wonder the food that evening was so luxe. Check it out.
We began with Canapes. My girlfriends were killing it! The deep-fried prawn dumpling with a whole prawn was the favourite of the lot.
For dinner: Roast Pork. Each plate comprised of two types of pork: shredded pork shoulder with cubes of crispy pork belly accompanied by smooth mashed potatoes and wedges of grilled pineapples. Impressive! I spent a good part of the evening promoting this dish.
The little plates were too cute! Wonderfully attractive presentation.
For dessert: the plumpest, most robust Rose Macarons I have ever seen in my life. If you are into Rose flavour, you would have adored these.
