Onion Restaurant and Bar: Birthday Treat from MissTamChiak

_MG_7831-001

This is gonna be my final birthday post for this year, I promise! ๐Ÿ˜› Was supposed to go on an exclusive romantic date with Maureen but she was kind enough to ‘insist’ that misterchewy join us too. She let me choose the location but I really had a long list of to-go places so it was kinda hard to come to a final decision! We agreed on Onion Restaurant and Bar in the end because we passed by it when we went for the ZESRPI kiwifruit dinner earlier on. It’s actually along the same stretch. My cousin, Sharon had recommended this restaurant to me so this was a good opportunity ๐Ÿ˜€

Don’t ask me why the restaurant is called ‘Onion’ when they specialize in tapas, oysters and wine! Does anybody know? Hehe.

Amuse bouche.

Not sure if this is considered another amuse bouche. LOL. This gigantic oyster was served shortly after we whipped out our DSLRs.

I had the honour of polishing off this delicacy because Maureen and misterchewy don’t like the taste of oysters! Hahaha lucky me! ๐Ÿ˜€

Seriously, one is just not enough.

The three of us ordered two soups to share. The Lobster Bisque ($12.80) was thick, creamy and full of that delicious crustacean flavor.

I was quite disappointed with the Clear French Onion Soup ($11.80) though, after reading quite a few reviews that seem to sing praises for it. Felt that something was lacking and it didn’t really pack a punch.

We asked for some recommendations and the waiter suggested that we try the Gambas al Ajillo ($10.80). It was well-flavored with Spanish garlic and I reckon that garlic lovers would truly love this dish.

Another much raved about dish was the Duck Confit on Mushroom Stew ($14.80). The shredded chunks of duck were very tender and were served with stewed oyster mushrooms. The combination was perfect and you should only attempt to eat this with the fluffy pita bread.

Each of us had a main to ourselves. I chose the Spicy Crabmeat Spaghetti with Caviar ($16.80) with sweet and spicy tomato sauce. I don’t usually go for tomato sauce based pastas but this had the right amount of sweetness and the sauce wasn’t too thick. I wish they had given me more crabmeat and caviar though! ๐Ÿ˜›

Maureen wanted to order the same but she went for the Roasted Lamb Rack with Fresh Herbs ($25.80) so that we could try different dishes. I really thought that the lamb rack tasted as good as it looked. It had a slightly smoked gamey flavor which was enough to tantalize the taste buds. A pity that they served only a few miserable slices!

*GASP* Maureen baked me a Frou Frou cake! What a pleasant surprise! It is essentially a cake made using raspberries and dessicated coconut, among other ingredients ๐Ÿ™‚ The chef was kind enough to plate it. It was Maureen’s first attempt baking this and it was pure success! This girl is a baking genius!

Thank you misstamchiak for the lovely birthday treat and for baking me the sweetest cake ever! I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my primary school bestie Adelene for the present and birthday dinner at Paradise Dynasty as well as my bunch of secondary school buddies for the awesome dinner at Hungry Chimps. You guys rock! ๐Ÿ˜€
