A short and overdue post from last Halloween. My first ever experience at Ms. G was indeed a spooky one.
With the decor and menu as creepy as The Addam’s Family movie, I must say I was quite impressed with their effort! From the music to the spider webs and the jars of ‘organs’ on the wall it all was quite startling. Most of the patrons dressed up in Halloween-themed costumes but the winner would be the staff… they made the extra effort right down to the scary make up. Very well done indeed.
I love a themed lunch/dinner and I hope they would do another themed menu soon; a ‘Honey I ate the bunny’ Easter lunch perhaps? Ok… maybe not… but here’s some of my pictures from the day.
Bubble tea style ‘Blood‘ drink – sweet and alcoholic, tasted a bit like marzipan.
Pigs ear, Lambs brain and rotten egg – so wrong but so crispy, crumby and stinking tasty.
- Blood pudding banh mi – This tastes really good! Probably the least spooky meal in terms of taste. Tastes like pork bun, only better.
Raw Clam. Not a fan of this one. Tastes pretty weird; dressing is good (punchy and tangy) but the raw clam was slimyyyy.
Blood jelly noodle soup – pretty good if you like blood jelly; the jelly tastes just as you’d expect; the broth tastes quite delicate, aromatic and slightly sweet.
Ants on Larp – yep we checked, those are real ants in there….
Do you believe me now? These were massive 1-inch long ants….
What do they taste like? Hmmm, a bit chewy and bland… also has this slightly slimy juice as you bite into the body… ewwwww still can’t believe I ate them. The larb has very strong, tangy and fresh flavour from the herbs and the dressing and I don’t think I’d notice the presence of ants from the taste of the dish if no one pointed them out to me.
Moving from insects… Heart and tongue – favourite dish of the day for me. I loved it. Tender and succulent meat with concentrated pho sauce and fresh herbs…..yum…
And to finish it off – Cheesecake grave with chocolate soil; served with ‘dry-ice’ effect. Very Heston-inspired and as cool as a vampire’s touch. Tastes good too… cheesecake flavoured icecream… makes perfect sense.
