Dear readers, blogging is going tortoise slow at the moment, busy with work and lacking of eating out! But I had the opportunity to visit The Hyde Out last month with my colleagues to celebrate our end of first rotation.
To quench my thirst, I ordered the homemade iced tea that came with fresh blueberries and fresh lime. It sure tasted good! For starters, we had bread with olive oil, onion jam with some spice, possibly sumac? Some had prosciutto as well.
There were five protein options for mains which include chicken maryland, lamb backstrap, pork belly, eye fillet and battered fish, with the vegetarian cannelloni. Guess what? The majority seemed to order either the lamb or beef, followed by fish and finally pork belly. Ahaha, I could not escape from not ordering the latter.
The overall gist I received from my fellow colleagues was that the food was delicious and fresh. The beef eye fillet was cooked to medium rare and the lamb had much kudos that night. As for my pork belly, it was pretty good except that the meat had quite a thick fatty layer. The Asian slaw that accompanied the pork belly gave it a fresher touch to this meal, especially the spicy pear paste!
We were all quite hesitant to order desserts but they certainly enticed us, especially myself. Ahaha! I managed to try the mango cheesecake and the parfait, both quite delicious.
The parfait was nicely presented in a chocolate cone with mint and berries. I think the parfait was pretty creamy but luckily the sourness from the berries managed to balance the flavour. We were so full by then but we still had more cheese and bread to enjoy!
Overall, we all had a good time talking and eating at The Hyde Out. It was a busy Wednesday night and the best part was catching up with other colleagues and our bosses.
