We had initially wanted to go to 49 Seats (it opened a new branch here in Orchard Central), but the queue was oh-so-long, so we went to Milagro opposite, and what an unexpected find it was!
- Golden-Fried Cauliflowers ($4): 5 huge pieces of cauliflowers battered with sea salt and golden fried, they were surprisingly soft and moist! The aioli dip was slightly spicy, and very addictive! We had initially thought that it was some kind of mayo, but there were differences, with the latter made from egg yolk and oil, and the former created with garlic and olive oil.
- Buffalo Wings with Valdeón Cheese ($13): The buffalo wings were spicy, and the blue cheese, erm… rather stinky. Amazingly, when we put them together, the spiciness and stinkiness cancelled each other out!! This combination turned out to be excellent 😀
- Arròs Negre ($59): When the waiter placed the 30-cm diameter pan on our table, he whispered that we could pack any leftover paella home. This squid ink rice looked uniformly black, but once we stirred the rice around, we could see all the ingredients! Consisting of octopus, clams, and squid, it was simply heavenly! The rice had fully soaked up the richness of the broth, and was really awesome! So awesome that we cleaned the entire pan 😀
We were so full! But there were so many other items that we will love to try 😀 With no GST or service charge, the prices here are definitely very affordable, and we are looking forward to our next visit here already 🙂
