It’s the Labour Day long weekend, and we are off to explore Dempsey Hill! We started our trip to Dempsey Hill at the Tawandang Microbrewery, with Thai style Petai with Squid ($22++), Thai Char-grilled Pork Collar ($22++), and a bowl of rice ($2++) to share.
The pork collar was delicious! Firm in texture, the fats to meat proportion was about 1:4. Dipped into the sauce, this was a heavenly combination!
The petai with squid was a disappointment though. Looking nothing like the pictures, we much prefer the local version. The squid was rather chewy and the gravy just didn’t go well with the petai. We would rather spend the $22 on the pork collar anytime.
The rice portion was quite huge, and we didn’t mange to finish it. However, it was too sticky and not fluffy enough.
