This week I was joined by my friend Dave Hogan for my weekly visit to the Moomba Tuckshop. Unfortunately he was swayed by my glowing opinion of the Roast Beef from last week and didn’t add another sandwich to review, so I ordered a half portion salad as well this week to cover more ground.
This week I sampled the Tea Smoked Chicken on the Onion and Sage loaf (9SGD). The bread was pressed and heated (without prompting from me). The chicken was super tender and moist and I believe the sandwich featured the same mayo mustard from last week’s Roast Beef. I have to say this is another winner. Maybe I’m more of a sauce guy than bread and meat guy with sandwiches?careful, this is a slightly messy sandwich
Dave loved the Roast Beef. We both however struggled with the sauces. They didn’t volunteer any napkins at the register so I had to go back in and get some as both sandwiches were a bit juicy – so be careful if eating in your work clothes!
For my half salad I went with the trendy Quinoa and Tuna. The salad featured quinoa, tuna, green beans, olives, and tomatoes. It was definitely healthy and still managed to provide some flavor. The tuna was a touch on the “too-fishy” side of the spectrum for my tastes though. It was nearing the end of lunch so maybe it starts the day fresher? It was still a nice healthy option.
For dessert pastry this week I ordered the Chocolate Tart. I was on the fence about ordering this or the Macadamia Nut Tart. As I was walking back to my table outside I was regretting the choice as the edges were looking really dry. My fears proved unwarranted however as the tart was very rich and moist. The strawberries on top added a nice touch – I mean it’s obvious but strawberries and chocolate just work together
