It is Christmas Day! I hope you have a enjoyable Christmas Day today.

Black Sheep Cafe

I spent my Christmas afternoon at Black Sheep Café with my mum, dad and younger brother for lunch. I always wanted to bring them to Black Sheep Café to experience the epicurean ecstasy I had with the food by Chef Ratha.

For this Christmas lunch, I had a Duck Confit with Apple Roesti (22.50 SGD). Every single bit of it was delectable once again. Ever since I had the Duck Confit on the second visit, I had been a fan of Black Sheep Café’s Duck Confit. The skin was crackling tasty. The meat was very tender as usual.

My dad had the Black Sheep Shank (22.50 SGD). His taste buds are hard to please. Fortunately, he enjoyed the Black Sheep Shank for its tenderness and it doesn’t have a strong pungent gamey flavor.

My mum had a special order because she could not eat lamb, beef and duck was a total no-no for health reasons. Chef Ratha has prepared a Baked Chicken (22.50 SGD) for her instead. Among the four main courses that we had, the Baked Chicken pales in comparison. The chicken had not absorbed the flavors of the sauce thoroughly and tasted bland towards the inside. The sauce however was fragrant.

The Fish Special was a Salmon dish (22.50 SGD), which was my younger brother’s order. I did not have the chance to taste it. My younger brother wiped the whole plate clean at the end.

We also had a Tiramisu with Compote of Wild Berries (8.00 SGD) which was on the Christmas Menu. Personally, I found the tiramisu to have a right balance of liquor, coffee and mascarpone cheese. The texture was quite smooth too.

I noticed the vanilla ice cream they used for the Flourless Chocolate Tart (8.00 SGD) has changed. The previous one does not have any spots, this time they seemed to use a higher quality vanilla ice cream. I enjoyed this dessert more than the Tiramisu, love the spongy, slightly molten texture of the flourless chocolate tart. The bittersweet chocolate tart goes well with the sweet vanilla ice cream and sour berry sauce.

Once again, Black Sheep Café did not disappoint me. The total bill including a bottle of San Pellegrino Sparkling Water by my younger brother was 109.50 SGD. With the Makandeals.com 25SGD Voucher (minimum 60 SGD bill), it was 84.50 SGD.

I noticed the prices have gone up for the main courses compared to the first visit. Standard Chartered Card holders get to enjoy 10% off total bill or a complimentary dessert with a minimum order of 3 main courses.
