Seeing as we both had a hectic week, we decided to try out the recently opened restaurant located on East Coast Road.
There is indoor seating and also alfresco dining available, as you can see from the picture below it's quite a small and intimate establishment.
They have quite a decent food and wine menu. The food can be described as comfort food, especially with choices like Lamb Shanks and Fish Pie.
Hubby ordered the Fish Pie topped with mashed potatoes and served with seasonal vegetables. It was one of their best sellers and probably a signature dish. The Fish Pie is cooked from scratch so please note that there is a 20 to 30 minute wait for it. It was a tasty dish with a nice fish flavour (not too strong) in a white sauce. Decent pieces of fish and Prawn were used in the dish. Although it tasted nice, the serving can be a bit small for some and at a cost of S$24+ we'll let you decide whether it is worth it or not. Don't get me wrong it was tasty though!
I ordered the Pan-Fried Black Cod on a bed of wilted spinach and Risotto Cake. This was also a tasty dish, the fish had a smooth texture, but be careful of bones. The risotto cake and wilted spinach complimented each other nicely. The cost of this dish was S$35+, again a very good tasting dish which was cooked very well so it'll be down to personal opinions as to whether it is worth the cost of the dish.
I was too full to order dessert, but Hubby ordered the Rhubarb and Ginger Crumble served with cream. The Rhubarb and Ginger actually complimented each other very well, with a sour taste that can get your appetite going again. The Crumble on top was very good! If you're a big dessert fan then you'll definitely find the serving very small (you'll see what I mean in the picture below when you compare the size of the spoon with the dish).
Overall Rabbit Carrot Gun is a nice local Bistro which serves very tasty food. The service is attentive and it is in a comfortable setting with seating inside and out. It's a small intimate little place.
It is located in East Coast and the area is surrounded by a lot of very good eateries that serve great food for a smaller amount of coin. One is certainly spoilt for choice around the East Coast but if you feel like treating yourself, Rabbit Carrot Gun is the place to try out for that treat. Its got good tasty options, isn't pretentious and sticks to a simple formula - serving good food.
