Both of us are real suckers for celebrations; that's why we ended up at Miss Clarity!
5 Purvis Street
I love the chirpy colours of their decor; especially since pink is being used so extensively! ^_^ It's located at a convenient location too; jux a short distance away from the National Library~
We added $3 to both our mains so that we could have a soup, a drink and their dessert of the day~ That's our lime juice u see up there; very diluted and pretty much tasteless!
The soup of the day was cream of corn; it was alright, nothing to shout about~
Baby's chicken cordon bleu ($8.80)~ The first thing that struck us was the small portion haha~ We ordered this coz i was curious why so many ppl order it! The verdict? We liked the taste; the cheese and ham stuffed inside, the lovely sauce (it says spicy alioli sauce on their webbie; tasted like onion-infused mayonnaise to me - i like!), the potatoes... anything but the chicken itself!
The chicken breast meat was much too tough! It was a pain trying to cut through the chicken, not to mention chewing that stuff! We really liked its taste and all that, but it's a real pity 'bout the texture!
We're definitely getting the fish cordon bleu instead the next time we visit!
My fish and chips ($7.50)! I can't help but order fish and chips whenever i visit a restaurant for the first time. Besides wanting to sniff out the good, if not the best fish and chips in town, it's kinda like my personal gauge for the quality of the restaurant too~
Miss Clarity's version wasn't too bad, but it was rather forgettable too. I would have liked it better if it was beer battered instead of breaded, but that's jux me.
Ordered calamari ($7) coz he's still feeling a little peckish~ The calamari rings came pipin' hot, a rather big portion and was served with tartar sauce. Baby loved it, i thought it was ok~
The dessert of the day was chocolate ice-cream~ No comments on this one!
The best thing about Miss Clarity is that there is no GST and service charge! We were pleasantly surprised when we saw the bill~
We'll definitely return, but we'll skip adding on $3 to our mains for the mediocre soup, drink and dessert. Instead, we shall use the money saved to get another side dish or dessert from the à la carte menu to share! A much better bargain, i would say! ^_^
