Adrian had to go to the club last weekend so we decided to explore our dining options in the North. We decided on Arbite at Serangoon Gardens but almost changed our mind about going because parking was a nightmare! Just as we were thinking of leaving the area and heading elsewhere, we managed to get a lot.
Arbite wasn’t very packed when we got there but there were quite a few tables with ‘Reserved’ signs and the place started filling up while we were eating. There were 3 or 4 servers working but I think most of them must be new because they looked somewhat clueless and kept having to check with the supervisor whenever they weren’t sure about something. For example, the table next to us asked for black pepper and the server went to ask the supervisor where it was even though it was in plain sight with the other condiments.
The food was good though. Adrian ordered his usual breakfast platter and it came with scrambled eggs, bacon, baked beans, grilled tomato, smoked chili & chicken sausage, mushrooms, brioche and pommes noisettes. He was very pleased with it and ranked it in the top 5 of all the breakfast platters he’s had. The coffee was only so-so.
I had the Duck & Eggs, which was poached eggs, duck rillette, Hollandaise sauce, jalapenos, cheese, muffin and greens. It was nice, but I was hoping for a stronger jalapeno flavour to come through. I could only taste jalapeno in one particular bite that I took.
I decided to have My Wife’s Chocolate Cake for dessert but it was such a disappointment. It looked good but was too dry. Maybe things would have gone better with the Gula Melaka Tiramisu or the Chocolate Yuzu Fondant!
