food review: Better Field.

One fine day, after dropping the kids off to their respective schools, Andy and I decided to go on a little lunch date.
It's only during Chinese New Year that Hubby can take leave from his work (so don't think that working in a family business is all sunshine and rainbows, and that's also the reason why we cannot go on long periods of travels >_< ). 

But I digress. So back to our lunch date.
We went to Waterloo Street for lunch and since it was 初三 (3rd day of Lunar New Year), the streets were still quiet as most people have gone back to work, and many shops were not open for business yet.

Went to explore the quaint neighbourhood.

Settled for lunch at this little restaurant called The Better Field:

Like its small and minimalist concept. Not populated when we went there (not sure if it was because of CNY or otherwise)

Ultimate Italian black truffle fries: $7 (M) or $13 (L). The size we ordered was M.
I like the skinny fries so it is not too filling before the mains are served.
Sprinkled generously with Truffle salt. Yumms!

Saute mushroom and Spinach: $8

My main: French duck confit, a dish of duck from France, spinach, berry compote, mushroom fricassee, roasted potatoes. $21.
The skin on the duck was very crispy and the portion was just nice. I could finish almost everything except a bit of the roasted potatoes. The berry compote goes wonderfully with the succulent duck.
Will request for more berry sauce next time :)

Want affordable steak? Then you have to try their Angus beef.
Hubby's main: The black Angus ribeye, chilled Australian beef, whole grain truffle mustard, Maldon sea salt, mesclun salad.
(How on Earth do these food people come up with all those names?!) 

200gm @ $21, 400gm @ $38, 600gm @ $50
