MEET @ City Square Mall – French & Japanese Inspired Cuisine
Come, meet this new family member at City Square Mall! Opened on 13th January, MEET has arrived with French and Japanese-inspired cuisines to bring you the best of both worlds. Take a look at their menu and it might send your stomachs on a growling rampage. Aren’t you excited to find out how the food actually fared in our books?
The Classic Mentaiko Angel Hair Pasta with Pan Seared Scallop and Seaweed Butter ($15) could do without the “Mentaiko” in the name. Don’t get me wrong, the pasta scored points for the al dente noodles drenched generously in a cream-based sauce. In addition, we particularly enjoyed the perfectly-cooked scallops with a beautiful caramelized colour on each side. The only issue we had was the lack of mentaiko in the dish – what a pity.
Moving on, we were supposed to meet the 6 Hours Braised Beef Cheek with Somen, Ginger and Sesame Seed ($15). However, the angel hair pasta showed up instead. We later found out that they changed the noodles recently after taking into consideration the customers’ comments. Personally, the sweetness from the pasta sauce didn’t quite resonate with me. However, the braised beef cheeks were quite tender and flavourful.
The Mussel. Prawn. Garlic in a Pan ($20) consisted of a bunch of prawns, mussels and clams bathed in a shallow puddle of buttery sauce. Whilst the accompanying risotto had good flavours, it was undercooked, much to our dismay. This dish was apparently meant to serve 2, but the portion wouldn’t pose a problem if you have a bigger appetite. Moreover, if you scream for seafood all the time like me, don’t hesitate to wolf this down all by yourself heh.
MEET has a satisfactory array of alcoholic beverages, comprising mostly of beer and ciders – an excellent pairing with the hearty chicken and seafood dishes. Brrrrr, sounds like a fantastic plan for this chilly monsoon season?
In my opinion, the potential in MEET has yet to be fulfilled. A few tweaks would probably make their dishes shine brighter. On the other hand, you may be interested in their weekday Lunch Set ($14.90), which includes a main of your choice and a soft drink.
