E.Clat Gourmet Canteen

Nigel Ate : 3.5/5
You might have just walked right on by if you didn't know there's a gourmet canteen inside Sultan-Link Building.

Residing in the vicinity of Robertson Quay, E.Clat Gourmet Canteen is a relatively new concept which came up from Mr Ng, a property agent cum foodie. His reason? That he had a hard time finding fresh food around the area; premixes were used so fervently for cooking and conjuring all of kinds sauces that he believes he can provide fresh food just as quick and at the same prices as well, giving birth to E.Clat Gourmet.

Self proclaimed to be 'fine dining for the masses', E.Clat Gourmet does indeed serve up reasonably priced items for the office crowd. We started off with a simple Tomato Bruschetta (4pcs) ($6.90) - hand made focaccia bread and diced tomatoes, drizzled with olive oil - which could use with a stronger tasting extra virgin. Nonetheless, it was a refreshing start.

Next up was the E.Clat Cheesy Onion Fries ($9.90) which was calling out for us to dive in. The amount of cheese used was too little to have any wow factor on us, more cheese please.

Encrusted in a thick coat of beer batter and deep fried, the Beer Battered Fish & Chips ($16.90) was fried to a crisp and came with homemade tar tar sauce. I reckon this was the highlight for me. Fish and chips with homemade tar tar sauce, what could possibly go wrong?

Thin crusted, with a swig of truffle mayonnaise in each slice, the Smoked Duck Pizza (12 inch) ($18.90) was sadly not as flavourful as it looked. 
Nigel Ate : 3.25/5
The Seafood Baked Rice in Tomato sauce ($10.90) would have scored much better in my books if it has been generously layered with cheese and the rice had been infused with more tomato and seafood flavour.

Serving up Egg Benedict ($10.90) here as well, the poached egg yolk flowed beautifully but I detected some uncooked white. The Hollandaise sauce was too thin and watery, could have been more full-bodied and robust.

This was your run-out-of-mill Black Pepper Beef Pasta ($12.00). The pasta was passable and the beef slices were tender but I have always found black pepper sauce not to be the best sauce to paired with beef as it overwhelms the beef's natural flavour. 
Nigel Ate 3.75/5
Last but not least, desserts. We had Rum & Raisin Panna Cotta ($8.80), freshly made daily. I couldn't taste any rum inside it, just panna cotta with freshly whipped cream. Delightful nonetheless. 

It's a relatively new restaurant so do stop by to have a try if you're in the area. Maybe the prices will keep you coming back, maybe the food will, I'll let you be the judge.
