Salad Bar by Day
Wine Bistro by Night
An interesting double concept.
Salad bar buffet with more than 50 items to choose from for lunch. Or you could enjoy the buffet with your main course. By nightfall, it is transformed into a wine bar, serving tapas, mains as well as sharing platters, paired perfectly with their 1000+ labels in their wine cellar. What’s best would definitely be costumers are allowed to select their choice of wines from the cellar and drinking in at Bistro 1855, at pocket friendly retail pricing.
Having a large table would mean a privilege for group gatherings. Especially to unwind and relax after a stressful day at work. Hmm that large screen projector would definitely be useful for company’s meeting as well as for soccer screenings…
How about a random wefie shot with Samuel before I carry on babbling about the food!?
Rustic Fries made from 100% russet potatoes was a pretty decent appetiser to start the meal with. The accompanying signature 1855 sauce is said to be a combination of sweet, tangy, spicy, smokey and savoury, all at once. Since I am a low spicy tolerance person, I felt that the spiciness being dominant, followed by the lovely smokiness.
The next finger food that would easily compliment well with alcohol would be the 1855 chicken wings! Going through 24 hours of marination before being deep fried to a super crispy exterior while retaining its juices within, I swear I could finish the whole basket of wings easily.
Not so much of a cheese person, the cheese board served with 4 different types of cheese. As we know the taste of each cheese is unique and it is also an acquired taste. Either you learn to enjoy them or don’t bother eating them at all.
Crispy Pork Belly have always been one of my favourite type of dish. Not to mention Bistro 1855’s version has super crispy skin! Not melt in the mouth but still tender meat, layered with that glistering fats, I definitely wanted more.
The Duck Confit that day was kind of disappointing. The duck leg was kind of dry and tough, perhaps too scrawny to begin with. There was also an unusual gamey taste and being cured could be the reason.
My favourite among all would definitely be the Lamb Shank! Slow braised in red wine and much to our delight, extremely tender and fall off the bone easily. I tried hard to detect even the slightest hint of gaminess but to no avail. Give me some bread and I could wipe the plate clean of its gravy! Definitely the highlight of the menu.
My theory of enjoyment over glamness! I would love to use my hand to pick up the shank and bite the tender flesh off the bone. (Bone for posing purpose in here.) I actually did bite off some small bits from the leftover bone…
Unleashed the carnivore in me!
Not forgetting the 2 performers who entertained us with a couple of lovely songs!
Posing with the 1855 background!!! Like a graffiti wall! Thank you Samuel for letting me use his camera since mine sucks due to dim lighting conditions.
