It was one of those hazy days where it was neither a beach day or a hiking day.
The boy and I decided to taxi it all the way to Repulse Bay to finally check out The Pulse. People say, when visiting The Pulse, the first thing that you should do is head over to Limewood and try out their delish food whilst chillaxin’ to the beachy vibe they’ve got going on.
Sold with this idea, we tried our luck and went there for a spot of late lunch without booking ahead. This is definitely not recommended if you are thinking of heading over for dinner as they get booked up in a blink of an eye!
Chuffed with our cheeky luck, we proudly walked behind the waitress as she showed us to our tbale, acting like two smug jackpot winners!
Now, on to the food…
As we arrived at an awkward too-late-for-lunch and too-early-for-dinner sorta time, we decided it was best to order their little aka ‘nibbles to share’ plates rather than ordering from the Mains list. We were obviously two starvin’ marvins but we also didn’t want to ruin our dinner plans.
So, first dish on the table was a plate of their spicy yet refreshing and light tiger prawn rice paper rolls with avocado, arugula and prawn sauce.
This next dish was sooooooo so so good y’all!
Vietnamese crab salad with creamed coconut corn, shishito pepper and toasted nuts.
All washed down with a glass of cucumber margarita with mint, jalapeño and dehidrated mint salt rim…
Next up was a bowlful of crispy calamari with a subtle zing coming from the charred lime and mango aioli…
Though this was a seriously delish dish, I kinda wished they had separated the sauce and serve it in a different ramekin. I like to have the option of how much or how little sauce I have in each bite.
Time for yet another fried delight…
Charred corn fritters with sweet lime yoghurt and crunchy corn – Super duper moreish! This was also another dish where I wished they had put the sauce on the side. Ya know, I am just one of those peeps who likes to dunk my chips/ fries/ frites and not have the whole thing smothered with sauce.
This one was ordered specially for the boy as he was craving some wings! I still got to pinch a wing from him though – I mean, how can I go to a resto and not try every dish that’s in front of me?! With lemongrass, honey and sweet chilli glaze, this dish was sticky, sweet and oh so dreamy.
It, however, did not beat my favourite dish of the day…
Colourful Vietnamese fish tacos with avocado, lime and Asian slaw. Man oh man, these babies tastes as good as it looks! My only complaint is that there weren’t more of them on the plate – Damn it!
Full from what was supposed to be a ‘light’ and ‘let’s just order nibbles’ linner (lunch and dinner), we slowly dragged our feet around Repulse Bay to try and burn some of that food of before heading into town for dins.
And on the way to the taxi rank, we made a quick pit stop at Lab Made as we (I) realised that we (I) completely forgotten to order some sweet treats after our unplanned feast at Limewood.
Rose and lychee dry iced tea – sweet and refreshingly perfect for this summer’s crazy humidity!
DRESS – NEW LOOK, old
