Ding Dong

今日のディナーは、Ann Siang Road の Ding Dongに行きました。夫とは2度目、わたしは1度お友達と行っています。今日はよく雨が降って、一度止んだもののまた出かけるころに酷くなりタクシーが捕まらなくて困りましたが、コンドのロビーに立ってタクシーを呼んでいたらタクシーが人を乗せて入ってきたので運良く乗れました。レストランに着くころにはポツポツ降る程度までおさまっていて助かりました。

It rained a lot today again – we’ve been having a lot of rain recently.  It stopped raining at one point but then started heavily again just when we were going out for dinner, so we had trouble getting a taxi.  Luckily, one came in dropping people off whilst we were busily trying to secure a booking via multiple phone apps, so we were able to get it.

We went to “Ding Dong” in Ann Siang Road.  This is my 3rd time to be there – twice with my husband (and his colleague and his wife) and once with my friends.  We ordered 4 from their “small plates” and 1 from the “big plates” and had 1 dessert to share.

「小さなお皿」から4品、「大きなお皿」から1品とデザートを1品オーダーしました。

手作り味噌豆腐の和風ドレッシング。ドレッシングはごくごく普通のお醤油味のドレッシング(酸味が強め)でした。お豆腐も美味しかったですし、小ささ紫蘇の香りもとても良かったです。

Handmade Miso Tofu salad with Japanese dressing.  The dressing was nothing special but the tofu was very nice and the small shiso leaves were very fragrant.  We loved it.

夫もわたしも大好きな、ベトナム風スコッチエッグ。ハーブの香りが良くサクサクでぴりっとしていて、とっても美味しい。

We love their Vietnamese Scotch Eggs – it’s fragrant with Asian herbs, the texture is lovely and crispy and a little spicy.  I can eat 10 of them!

イベリコ豚のバオ。豚肉の匂いが少し気になるので敏感な人はダメかもと思いますが、わたしはギリギリオーケー。

Iberico Pork Bao.  I find Iberico pork we get in Singapore a little too gamy for my liking, and this one was also a little gamy but just on the borderline that I can enjoy.  The bao itself is very nice, too.

和牛ビーフのチャーシュー。ご飯と一緒に出てきます。これも美味しいです。

Wagyu Beef Char Siew.  Very good.

まだちょっと物足らないね、ということで、ベトナム風のスコッチエッグをもう1皿オーダーして、デザート。デザートはチョコレートとカヤですが、あまりカヤは分かりませんでした(良かった)。

We felt we needed a little more so we ordered another plate of Vietnamese Scotch Eggs.  Then a dessert – Chocolate & Kaya.  I don’t like Kaya but I didn’t detect it, maybe in the coconut meringue?  Anyway, we enjoyed this one, too – it’s not too rich.

これまでオーダーしたもので全然美味しくないと思ったものは1つもなく、どれも美味しくいただけています。ガス入りのお水1本(大きな瓶)をシェアーしてお酒も食後の飲み物も飲まず150ドルほど。日本だとお酒を飲んでそれくらいだと思うので安くはないですが、何を食べても大きく外れないところはなかなかないので、好きなお店の1つです。椅子の座り心地さえ良ければね〜、と思いますが、今日はさくっと食べたのでお尻が痛くもならず(笑)。

I don’t think I’ve had anything I don’t like in this restaurant, which is rare.  I like their style of cooking – lots of Asian herbs, small portions, pretty presentation but nothing radical.

We had a large bottle of sparkling water, no coffee or tea and the bill was a little under S$150.  In Japan it would be about the same price but also including some glasses of wine if we went to a similar level of a restaurant/bar, so it is on the expensive side – but this is Singapore.  I would say that this is one of my favourite restaurants right now.
