Devon by Night

It’s nice to head out for dinner with more than just The Mister sometimes, and Devon by Night is the perfect location to have a few friends with you.

The banquet option ($50pp) is a great sampling of their delicious foods and with seven courses it took us no less than 2 hours to finish the meal so ample conversation is vital. Enough jibber jabber – to the food!

Korean steak tartare – tajima eye round 9+, sesame, egg yolk, nashi ($18)

These first two dishes made for a lovely, refreshing start to the night. Could not wait to get to the next dishes to arrive so we could gorge, but first, one more image of the steak tartare:

Steams XL oysters, sweet sake, soy, garlic, shallots ($7 ea)

I have to say, I’m very picky with how I eat my oysters – raw with mum’s sauce made with ginger, soy, vinegar, sugar; and cooked with seafood soy, shallots, ginger. I know The Mister isn’t a huge fan of seafood, but we both thoroughly enjoyed these babies; we only wish there was more than one for each person.

Belacan fried chickn – fried chicken wings marinated in Malaysian shrimp paste, kalamansi dipping sauce ($15)

When these hit the table they staaaaaannkkk like stinky tofu. I’m definitely neither a fan of the smell nor the taste of stinky tofu but ventured to try these wings anyway. Just as well, like the stinky tofu, these taste a lot better than they smell and lucky there was two for everyone.

Pork bun – Hakka style Malaysian pork belly, taro ($5)

The pork belly was soft and fell apart the moment it hit my tongue. I have to say, I didn’t like the gritty texture from the taro though. Mains up next:

Cultivated mushroom parcel ($13)

There was also some Steamed broccolini, garlic & oyster sauce ($9) that I neglected to photograph. The mains and sides were subpar compared to everything else that landed on the table. The lamb had too much sauce for our likings, the mushrooms were too salty and too oily from having been sitting in their foiled juices. The fish and broccolini were average. It’s okay, we still love Devon, especially since their desserts are the epitome of amazing. Check them out.
