After reading all the rave on hgw about brown sugar's set lunch, I had to try it for myself! So yesterday afternoon, I brought my beau to this hidden place for a bd lunch b4 the rest-of-the-day activities. While making a turn into the bistro, my beau wondered aloud why I was driving him to, in his own words, "a community ctr" for lunch.

So what's a fine dining place doing in a "community ctr"?

I say, to hide away from public eye before it gets overcrowded of coz...!

Service was really prompt, staffs were attentive though we had to squint really hard to read the set selections from the chalkboard at the other end of the bistro (No menu list for set lunch) :(

@ $27 for a set of 3 course, we ordered:
1) cream of brocolli & spinach
2) tomato salsa mussels

1) Steak with rocket salad and fries on the side
2) Crispy Duck Confit

1) Red wine poached pear w vanilla icecream
2) Banana Pineapple crumble w fig&honey icecream

I was expecting a small portion for that price but when the appetizers came, I was truly impressed! They didn't scrimp on the portions at all. But the scenical boyfriend says "wait till the mains come, I'm sure my steak will be the size of your palm". Lo and behold, he was proven wrong again with the nicely down steak served up in front of him.

Overall food was great, but the banana & pineapple crumble was a tad too sweet even for my liking..

One thing though, I was overcharged $8 for an item called "food", on top of my $27x2 set lunches. That was the only downside... Blame it on myself for not checking the bill before signing off on it... :P

Must Tries: Crispy duck confit, mussels in tomato
