Enough about what we saw! Let’s get it on with what we tasted.
What We Had at 1 Tyrwhitt Bistro & Bar
We ordered Fish and Chips (S$ 16.80), their Truffle Cream Sauce pasta (S$ 19.80), and Caprese salad (S$11.80). On the side, we had Calamari (S$ 10.00) and Potato Wedges (S$ 8.00). The serving size? A shocker. Our taste buds? Totally mind blown!
The serving size was very generous, and worth every cent you pay. The taste? Justifying them would be difficult. They definitely tasted better than they look – and, they looked majestic! Kudos, 1 Tyrwhitt Bistro & Bar!
The Fish and Chips came in really fresh – the chips were the perfect taste and crisp to the last bite. I know, I am not the only one who would fight to defend this.
The Calamari serving was still hot and crisp when it got to us. You could tell by the chewy texture of the Calamari that it was fresh. The flavor of the coating was not too overwhelming. It’s a personal favorite!
I have always been a fan of creaminess, and the Truffle Cream Sauce of this pasta just hit the right taste buds! Again, it was a big portion, so I did not mind sharing with my companions. These dishes are just a delight!
I was never really fond of salad, because I love meat and flavorful dishes that just challenge your taste buds. The Caprese Salad did just that! Together, everything in the salad seemed like a new taste to me. I did not regret this dish at all.
Believe me, just writing about the experience is making me get up and indulge in another set of food at 1 Tyrwhitt Bistro & Bar.
Drinks at 1 Tyrwhitt Bistro & Bar
We tried the draught Kronenbourg Blanc (S$ 16.00) since it was just late afternoon. But, if you are a bigger group, you can try the Kronenbourg Tower (S$ 76.00). If Kronenbourg is slightly too strong, there’s a pint for Carlsberg at S$ 14.00. A Carlsberg Tower is around S$ 76.00, at the same price of a Kronenbourg’s tower.
