We walked past this restaurant the last time but didn’t venture in because although it calls itself a cafe, it’s more like a restaurant.
So tonight when we ran out of ideas for dinner, this restaurant just jumped out of our mind!
The wall posters in this restaurant has, of course, the black sheep theme! There’s even a poster of The Last Supper but all the disciples are black sheep! Haha…
There are not many tables and seats inside, but the ambience is quite relax and with smooth piped-in music, the environment makes for an ideal setting for a quiet meal with love ones.
We ordered Half Dozen Escargot with Herbs and Garlic (S$12.50) for starters, and The Duck Confit on Apple Roesti with Mango Relish (S$26.50) and Slow Cooked Beef, Lyonnaise Potatoes and Mushroom Fricassee (S$28.50)as mains.
The escargots were excellent! Other that being a little bit oily, they were very tender and every bite gave us the very chewy texture and really jazz up our appetite! And the warm bread was a plus too!
The duck confit was a little hard and dry. Not as juicy as we imagined. But the apple roesti was creamy and smooth.
The slow-cooked beef tasted really like Chinese stir-fry beef with green vegetables! Haha.. But it was quite tasty and we loved the mushrooms!
While we were having the dinner, G saw hubby’s posting on FB and commented for us to try their must-try Kahlua Soufflé with Double Chocolate Ice-cream (S$14) for dessert.
The presentation for this dish was unique! First the waiter used the knife to cut a hole in the puffed-up soufflé. Then he poured the Kahlua syrup directly into the hole!
The soufflé was soft and fluffy without being too extremely sweet. The ice-cream was quite normal though. 🙂
The Black Sheep Cafe is a decent restaurant and we may drop by again for another meal soon. 🙂
