… the 3 dots at the end of Ellipsis means that there is always more from Ellipsis…
…….not happening – at all.
Went to Ellipsis for dinner last night, with hubby. Again courtesy Restaurant Week. Its a restaurant I’ve been wanting to visit. I’m glad that I went and I’m over it. I always wanted my blog to have good things to say about food, but Ellipsis really really let me down – Big Time. Due to some religious reasons, we ordered only a vegetarian fare.
While we waited for our first course – the salad, we were each presented with a small plate with 1 cheesy fried dumpling – it was nice. The meal started off well. They then offered us a bread basket with flavoured butter, honey miso and smoked pepper dips – the dips were really good but the bread was chewy.
Both these were complimentary while were waited for the salad.
The salad arrived – looked fantastic. It was a spinach salad with spinach, arugula, caramelized and roasted nuts and goat cheese, It was great. So goooood. I thought to myself – great place to have come. But then, the salad was the highlight of my meal.
This was followed by the Second course – the appetizers – we had to choose one each. I chose the aubergine starter – (eggplant, chilies, soy and crispy rice). Hubby selected The Tofu bowl (garlic, sesame and fall vegetables). We exchanged the plates.
My feedback – NO to the aubergine starter. The Tofu bowl was really good.
Hubby’s feedback – The Tofu bowl was decent. Reminded him of Chinese-styled cooking. Found the aubergine starter better.
Main course was Fettuccine – house-made pasta, grilled veggies tossed in marinara. Our verdict – decent but too much of marinara which gave a very tomato-y taste to the dish.
Finally we were ready to order the desserts. We were really hoping the desserts would uplift our mood. How our moods crashed – shattered!
We ordered – Panna cotta (coconut, lemongrass, kaffir lime) and a creme brulee (nutella, white chocolate). My hubby had a bite of each and asked me to finish them off – if I wanted. Panna cotta was really bad. For the creme brulee, if I would have been offered a ramekin of pure Nutella, I would have felt happier.
… FULL STOP. THE END.
