Tras Street has got to be one of our favorite dining destination. Having read some favorable reviews on The Wagon – a 6-month old restaurant serving up French cooking, tapas style, we made a reservation over the weekend to check it out.
The appetizers were wheeled to us on a wagon trolley. We were told by the friendly server the dishes on the wagon changes daily so we’ll likely to find some other dishes on our next visit.
Apart from the appetizers-on-wheels, they have an ala carte menu serving substantial portion of mains.
Unfortunately, the Consomme with Homemade Ravioli and Bone Marrow & Beef Tartar were sold out.
We picked out this bowl of clean looking Homemade Tofu with Seafood from the wagon. I think I was sold by the homemade part.
The tofu was light and silky, with texture that resembled our local tau huay (soy bean curd dessert).
Despite being on the bland side, it provided a very refreshing start on our palate for what was more to come.
This cute little amouse bouche sized egg comprised of dashi jelly, chicken skin, chicken meat and egg foam.
Dressed in a light wasabi mayonnaise dressing, the diced salmon sashimi was given a new burst of flavor and the crisp, yeasty toast was the perfect vehicle to pair with this.
Before we confirmed our order, the server warned us the seasoning on the shaky potato would err towards the salty side. Boy, was he right. Since our taste buds favor intense and salty food, we did not complain.
But I could imagine for diners who are not used to heavy seasoned flavor, this might not be a good choice.
I was totally picturing a different image of how this dish would be before it arrived. Till now, I’m not really sure how the geniuses in the kitchen did it but this has got to be one of my favorite meat dishes. The outer layer was extremely crispy while the beef-pork combination was so soft, almost gelatinous and has a melt-in-your-mouth texture.
Although the beef in this dish was not as soft as the previous, it was definitely fork tender and shredded apart effortlessly with a fork and spoon.
The risotto was cooked to perfection – al dente and the cheese sauce was creamy yet not overpowering.
If you are a uni lover, you should definitely give their fresh uni a try. From the look of the other diners who had it, I think it is worth it.
If you are fans of kronenburg Blanc, Suntory Premium Malt Pilsners and cocktails, they do have some great happy hour promotions starting from $5 (Mon – Sat, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm).
Bear Naked Food pays for their own meals unless otherwise stated.
