Roast Lamb for Sunday Lunch

Roast Lamb with Parsnip, kumara, asparagus

Mmmmm, the Partner cooked a roast lunch today. Every Sunday should be like this! Meat in Singapore is rather expensive. For the 700gm of lamb, it cost nearly $25. It would probably have been about half the price in New Zealand, or for that matter, countries with an agricultural industry.

Still, $25 is not too much if you compare to eating out at restaurants. And at the very least, you get to choose the best and the freshest cuts, cook it exactly how you like it to be, and last but not least, choose the side dishes you want! I can possibly say that no where else in Singapore can you get roast parsnip and roast sweet potatoes (kumara) with the meat.

Brasserie Wolf at Robertson Walk

I had a great time at Robertson Walk today. I love this place because it is so peaceful. Because it is off the main roads, few people come here and the place is not crowded. There are many restaurants and cafes to choose from, most of them are quite unique and cannot be found in the usual shopping malls. Plus there is the lovely walk along the river. It was a great idea to spend a slow Saturday afternoon. And today, the weather was so accommodating. It was one of those lovely blue sky days with a cool breeze minus the humidity.

We had lunch at Brasserie Wolf, a French restaurant by the Esmirada Group. We got a good seat far away from everybody else. They have a special set menu. A 2-course set lunch costs $25 and a 3-course set lunch costs $35. The main courses on offer were Pan-Seared Salmon, Grilled Beef Onglet, Roasted Rump of Lamb, Roasted Chicken Roulade Stuffed, Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Linquini with Asparagus and Black Olives.

I love tagliatelli so I had my eyes set on the Tagliatelle de Confit de Canard (Duck Confit Tagliatelle) from the ala carte menu so I couldn’t order the set lunch even though I thought it was a very good deal. The Partner wanted the 2-course set lunch of the Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Fresh Fruit Salad with Raspberry Sorbet. I got him to get the 3-course set lunch so that I could order the appetiser of Smooth Chicken Liver Pate with Melba Toast.

Brasserie Wolf also has a 1 for 1 house pour promotion from 12pm – 7pm. On Sundays, children eat free per paying adult. Click here for Brasserie Wolf’s website.

Smooth Chicken Liver Pate and Melba Toast

The smooth chicken liver pate appetiser. It was so delicious I nearly finished all of it even though it made me fuller than I wanted before having my main course. I only wish there were more slices of toast to go with the generous amount of liver pate. I wonder if liver pate is full of cholesterol and fat???

Roasted Pork Tenderloin

The Roasted Pork Tenderloin was indeed very tender

It was nice tagliatelle, but I thought the duck was just a little too dry.

Fresh Fruit Salad with Raspberry Sorbet

When the mixed fruit salad arrived, I was a little taken aback by the not so stylish appearance. I mean who serves apple slices for dessert at a restaurant? Thankfully, it was really refreshing and sweet despite the looks. I think the Partner really enjoyed the Raspberry sorbet, him being a berry person.
