This space at China Square serves up meatballs as their specialty dish hence the name - Club Meatballs. With its chic modern setting, this new F&B joint gives us, city workers, one more reason to stay around the area for dinner and chill out after work.
Pulled Pork Sliders (3Hands)
Another pulled pork dish. Although not the best, the pulled pork slider tasted pretty decent. While the portion of meat was generous, I somewhat liked the plating of the dish more. With props around the restaurant, it makes the slider one for the camera.
Calamari served in a traditional dimsum basket. You don't expect more but the sauce for the deep fried squids is so different from elsewhere. The mojo picon and garlic aioli compliments the calamari perfectly. Worth the stomach.
Pimp my balls (3 Hands)
We diners get to choose between 5 diferent types of meat - iberico pork and fennel, fish with coriander and chilli, wagyu with rosemary, veggie chickpea and coriander & free range chicken & cumin. Next, you get to choose 5 type of sides to compliment the meatballs and lastly a sauce finish the dish.
Personally, I felt that the pork was a tad too blend and dry whereas the beef was the better of the meat balls. Truffle mushroom was my choice of sauce while tomato & basil could do no wrong either. To end off, I prefer the freshly made papadelle and the roasted veges. The risotto was poor in my opinion. A meatball dish is good for 2 if you're not hungry. A dish to yourself can make you feel very 'gelak'.
overall review: shauneeie3hands. A great place to chill after work which serves happy hour with a mix of beers, wines and cocktails. Also, coffee is from the good folks at sarnies if you are not a alcohol lover. Food wise, I found the dishes decent at most. Pimp your meatballs wisely and you find yourself with a meal worth the price, if not, you'll be grumbling the entire night.
