Post tennis treat! We went to w39 (39 Jalan Mas Puteh) after an early Friday day for me ( short ds list ) and cohesion day for him. Played at KE till glare of lights killed our game. Was thinking really hard about tamoya udon but we decided to this homely neighbourhood joint instead. Has the vibe of windowsills, food vibe of morsels- but we LOVE the hearty portions at extremely friendly prices. Great find for the start of the year !!
king crab soup- the first of the January specials, with potato and leek. j was fiddling with the oil on the soup and wondering if it was truffle. Didn't get to figure it out but the cream went awesomely well with the generous chunks of crab.
king crab salad- tangy with mango salsa and tomatoes.
Our second favorite of the night - seared tuna with avocado. Very meaty tuna.
Baked mushrooms. j and I have mastered mushrooms enough to be of this standard ( or better, with the help of truffle oil :p)
The braised lamb was an awesome combination with the mantou- it was rather gamey on its own.
An awesome wind down to the first week of posting. Back to the books momentarily ( and awesome Meiji milk and red bean icecream ) at home !
