Relish by Wild Rocket: Traditional Food With Modern Touch
Modern and elegant, Relish is a casual eatery that serves local traditional flavours with Western and modern touches. Popular for their quirky and over-the-top burgers, Relish by Wild Rocket also serves gastronomical pasta and other tantalizing appetizers.
As I am a fan of local food fare, it was a challenging moment while I looked through the menu. They have Ram-Lee Burger (re-invention of the well-known Ramly Burger) and Hae Bee Hiam Spaghettini which is spaghetti toss in aromatic shrimp belachan and scallops.
In the end, I got myself the Char Siew Pork with soft Bone Burger ($17.8), Marmite Chicken Wings ($12.8) for sharing and Blue cheese & pear burger ($19) by Xuan.
This creation was brilliant. It did take me a while to appreciate its peculiar flavour. It was salty and tangy at the same time! Unlike those that I’ve eaten which were sugar loaded, I guess this is the pure taste of marmite. Acquired taste I must say!
Underneath this coat was one of the crispest and juiciest wings I’ve ever eaten. Just like eating American Buffalo wings, this was the oriental version.
Succulent, mildly charred and tender through; the marinate was deeply penetrated into every myofibril possible! This Char Siew burger was orgasmic!
I had a portion of blue cheese patty too. Acquired taste too, and I love it! Hint of blue cheese infused in the finely minced beef patty, one word – SHIOK!
Overall, each of us had to spend about $30 for a lunch, but the quality and creativity justified its value.
