[Food Review] Black Gold Cafe

Love knocked off late from work so we decided to settle our dinner nearby his office. Came across this cafe and decided to try out.
We ordered Set Dinner Menu B $48.00 nett– 4 course (with appetizer), btw, you can request for ala carte menu, don’t know why the service crew shows us their set menu only.

I don’t fancy bread roll with nuts, give me white bread and i would love it anytime – with salted butter. Yums.

Starter -Soup of the day (Creme of Mushroom) Very thick soup base, and lots of tiny mushroom bits, i drank up the soup in few seconds.

Appetizer – Half dozen Escargots stuffed in mushrooms served with garlic butter, although i don’t eat Escargots (in fact i don’t dare to try them, psychological barrier i guess), i actually thought this dish smells real nice, probably due to the mushrooms. Escargots were a tad small in size, probably because the shells were removed.

Main Course – Duck leg confit with apple sauce, served with pan fried potatoes & mushrooms. The first time i had Duck confit was at Orgo and i still prefer Orgo’s. This time round, the duck was slightly hard, difficult to chew and swallow.

Dessert – Warm chocolate pudding with lavender sauce & vanilla ice cream. I love warm chocolate pudding, however, doesn’t fancy lavender, without lavender, the dessert would be perfect.

Look at the oozing chocolate larva.. favorite part eating this.

Verdict: I don’t think i will step in again, although the service crew are nice, ambiance is good. But i wasn’t prepared to pay >$100 for a mediocre dinner for two at Tanjong Pagar.
