I finally got the chance to try Blackbird in Nielsen Tower when I attended an event. I was so happy when they served a full meal because I have heard that the place was a tad bit expensive and since I am a single Mom on a budget, I don't see myself dining here soon.
We started with Prawn Scotch Egg with betel leaves, chili coconut sambal grilled octopus, cucumber pickle, sesame, soy crab cakes, green apple, and radish slaw. I loved the crab cake the most then it was the prawn scotch egg.
The Porcini and Portobello Mushroom Cappuccino was DELICIOUS.The taste of the coffee was present and it was overwhelming but in a good way. I downed every last drop of this soup.
The Dry Rubbed Wagyu Hanger Steak that came with mustard butter and fries was really soft and tasty. It was exactly how I liked my steak. It was cooked medium well and I finished every single slice of it.
The Sticky Date Pudding that came with gooey caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream was very good as well. It was sinfully delicious. It was so good I finished it in less than 3 minutes.
It seems that the hype about Blackbird is true. Almost everything I tried was really good. Thankfully, I didn't have the displeasure of seeing the prices because it was during an event that I got to try their food. For those who are curious though, here are their information.
