Outdoor seating at The Public Izakaya. My friend whom has been assigned (or volunteered) to work in Europe is back this weekend and she thought it will be good to have a dinner together before she fly off to Australia for her friend’s wedding.

Late Dinner at “Saturday” on a Monday Night

Located in the corner of a row of shophouses along Upper Paya Lebar Road.  I was meeting near my house bus stop while a glance and we notice the brightly lit signboard that wrote “Saturday”. In fact, two weeks ago we came by which they were still under preparation. Mushroom Soup with Garlic Bread. The soup tasted well but it was served warm rather than hot. Perhaps they could improved on that. They have applied garlic spread over the bread before toasting it. Loved it. Seafood Arrabbiata. Cooked with some shrimps, clams, squid and mussels in tomato sauce. On the first mouth of the dish, it reminds us of a similar taste which we had eaten before in the past. There was one period of time …
