Black Sheep Cafe | National Day

I normally have a National Day gathering with some friends. This year instead of booking a place to cook, we decided to revisit a favourite restaurant of ours : Black Sheep Cafe where Chef Ratha has very graciously and enthusiastically created a National Day themed menu.

It is a three-course menu where we get two choices for each the appetizer and main course except for the dessert. Appetizer was a choice of Pepper Crab Soup above or Chilled Prawns with Laksa Panna Cotta. The Pepper Crab Soup was very rich and thick while the Chilled Prawns is a contrast with a plethora of textures of flavours such as....

fruity mango salsa with springy, succulent prawns and a smooth pudding of laksa. I rather enjoyed this starter.

For mains, it is a choice of Lamb or Duck. The Lamb was tender and does not carry that heavy gamey flavour as expected from Black Sheep Cafe. However, compared to its signature lamb shank, I though the Kambing Soup approach results in a pot-roast kind of dish. I was would have love a little bit more kick from the sauce etc. Perhaps this is so that the lamb will be a contrast to the heavier and more richly seasoned and prepared Duck Penyet.

The Duck Penyet was really good, a nice contrasting textures of crispy crushed skin and very tender and juicy meat. The garlic rice is a little strange as a side but the duck on its own was amazing.

Dessert, a pandan souffle with gula melaka was very memorable. I just love how fragrant and fluffy the souffle is and the addition of gula melaka was just brilliant. I would love to have seconds. There is a version where the souffle was risen from a coconut, which looked impressive but less delicious because parts of the souffle was just too moist.

In a cup like this however, this was a brilliant end to the meal.
Thank you Chef Ratha for the memorable National Day Lunch.

  1. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from ...

    I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks
