Crab Cakes [$12.90] Three potato fritters stuffed with large chunks of crab claw meat, deep fried and served with lemon. - Fresh crab meat. Great for eating crabs without hassle.

Risotto Balls [$8.90]Mozzarella-stuffed balls of risotto, breaded in panko then deep fried and served over of rich pumpkin puree. - Yummy cheesy. Deep fried, but not very oily. 

Truffle Fries [$6.90] Thick cut French fries seasoned with white truffle oil and topped with shaved truffles. - Rich tasting truffle, but at the same time not overpowering.

Momo-Lychee Ale [$9.90] Larger beer flavoured with fresh peach and lychee nectar, then garnished with mint sprigs and fresh lychees (2.9% ABV) - Beer cocktail. Tastes sweet. Great for people who like sweet tasting beer.

Smith's Ale [$9.90] Larger beer infused with green apples and lemons, then garnished with fresh  apples, lemon and passion fruit (2.9% ABV) - Beer cocktail. Taste like fizzy apple.

Saffron & Caviar Risotto [$19.90]Saffron infused risotto with char-grilled prawns and scallops then finished with sustainable caviar and fine herbs. - One of the popular dishes. This is really good. A must try.

Spicy ‘Diablo’ Crab & Prawn [$18.50] - Egg Tagliolini with prawns and crab claw tossed in a spicy egg sauce. - Another popular choice. Too spicy for me. But shiok. People who like spicy food would like this.

Pressed Pork Belly [$19.90]Melt in your mouth pork belly served with braised apples, garden vegetables and a honey & clove apple glaze. - This is as good as it looks. Yummy juicy pork. The sauce is sweet, so for those who love sweet stuff, this is perfect.

Popping Candy Sea Salt Caramel Cake [$] - - The popping candy really pops! Just a small mouthful, and the candies came to live in your mouth. Addictive feeling.
