ToTT Bistro and Tools of The Trade ToTT's 4th Anniversary Celebrations

Last Friday I went to the ToTT Bistro at Tools of The Trade to sample a few of the dishes from their menu.  Lets face it after some serious shopping etc. you definitely need something to eat to help you on your way.  Tools of The Trade are also celebrating their 4th anniversary this month with a load of exciting offers for you to enjoy, even more reason to get yourself over there!

I sampled several of their dishes having the bruschetta ($6.90++) to begin with, one of the bistro's snack dishes.  This is a perfect sharing dish and a great way to start your meal, full of flavour and nice and fresh.  This was followed up by the chicken cottage pie ($8.90++) a ToTT special.  You can see from my photo below just how cheesy and gooey it was, definitely one of my favourites of the evening.

From here we moved on to trying a few of the mains, beginning with a steak sandwich with fries and coleslaw ($14.90++).  The steak was lovely and juicy and the side of coleslaw had a fruity tang to it.  Next up was the muesli battered fish and chips ($9.90++) which whilst appearing Western had a subtle Asian twist.  The muesli batter being a nod to the Singaporean dish, cereal prawns.  This was my first experience of this style of batter (I confess I wasn't aware of the dish previously) and compared to traditional fish and chip batter this was light, crunchy and very good.  Finally from the mains we had satay chicken chop with pandan steamed rice ($9.90++).  Another favourite from this part of the world.  I've never tried rice steamed with pandan before but it really gave the rice a nice subtle flavour as well as turning the rice a subtle shade of green.

Although the last couple of dishes we tried from the mains had a bit of an Asian feel to them we then tried a couple of distinctly local dishes on the menu, the Mee Rebus Deluxe ($12.90++) and the Prawn Noodle Soup ($12.90++).  The Mee Rebus had a nice warming kick of spice to it (not including all the chillies you can see in the photo) and was really filling!  The Prawn Noodle Soup also tasted great and was really hearty.

No meal is complete without dessert and to finish ours off we had Sugar Dusted French Toast with Strawberries ($9.90++).  I've said before that I have a sweet tooth and despite being pretty full by this point I managed to do the French toast justice and finish my piece.  Possibly one again to share but too good not to indulge in when dining here.

As I mentioned at the start ToTT are currently celebrating their 4th anniversary this month and whilst there may not be much of October left there is still plenty you can enjoy.  ToTT have recently launched a cookbook called, '365 Days of Fun' full of recipes designed by Singapore's favourite chefs, including Benjamin Siwek from db Bistro Moderne, Bernice Ong from Salted Caramel and many more.  The dishes have been created to compliment various themes including, movie nights and pets picnic!  This book is available exclusively at ToTT and is priced at $12.90 each.
