Monday blues will never be the same again.
And if your week has been awfully draggy, The Rotisserie is here to ease the pain and recharge your belly. So say hello to this year-old white-washed bistro smacked right in China Square Food Centre, whereby suits from nearby offices in the CBD gather to seek comfort. As if the moniker isn’t obvious enough, the office people queue for their adroitly-prepared roasts. We say do not expect an epitome of presentation: the taste alone will make your day.
With an array of scrumptious nosh and jaw-dropping affordability, it is hard not to have full-house at this 120-seater casual-chic eatery during peak hours, and we will be surprised if its otherwise. Though there are no scenery, we still suggest grabbing the alfresco seats for some people-watching and a lick of breeze. Never mind the absence of butler-service, because self-service here is both self-explanatory and swift.
This dish alone is enough to close the deal.
Expect an obscene amount of roasted pork meat that would make shameless carnivores, like us, smile in our dreams. The half-pork knuckle was neatly cut and dramatically stacked, and every single slice glistened in their tenderness. Sinking your teeth through golden skin was like having fire crackers in your mouth, and the unctuousness simply got overwhelmed by the fragrance at that instance. The meat was oh-so-tender and they slid down the throat so smoothly. Somehow, the tasty gourmet salads didn’t matter anymore.
If this doesn’t amaze you, we don’t know what will.
This crowd-pleasing signature dish could be found on almost every table, not only because it is on the cheap, but it is delightfully good. Rejoice that every poultry here is marinated overnight and then roasted till perfection before your order, so the meat is tender and juicy. And slathered upon the meat is their delish mash potato sauce, should you choose to have it paired with your chicken. The salad was a great touch to the main as well, but switch them for some fries if greens intimidate you.
We say wolf down your meat quickly before your itchy-finger colleague get any chance to steal a bite from you.
Their spinach quiche was simple yet pleasant to the palate. It could have been a great way to end the meal with a buddy if not for the cheeky price tag.
Honestly, the nosh left us more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed than we stepped in and our pockets still felt heavy when we stepped out. Spoil yourself silly with some good grub here before heading back for another round of boss’ chanting, and perhaps, the experience would be less painful.
And it also doesn’t hurt to grab some muffins from the nearby Muffinry to facilitate the inter-cubicle gossiping later at tea-time.
