Zinc

Apparently #1 on TripAdvisor, we selected this place for a celebration dinner.

Quaint and chic casual dining in Kuching, I guess we don't really have much choices to begin with.

The outdoor seating is full of mosquitoes - do request for coil if you really need to sit outside.

Jamon Croquetas (RM18)

Standard croquettes very nicely deep-fried, but those croquettes are most likely instant ones.

Jamon Sampler (RM68)

A little too dry despite the layer of fats. Did not like the chewiness. Besides, the price is a little too steep for just that few slices.

Escargots (RM28)

Could have done a little better with more butter.

Laksa Pizza (RM30)

Something very different that exhibits Kuching's famous laksa - on a pizza!

Rib Eye Steak (RM68) + Foie Gras (RM28)

Fairly reasonable steak - not really a fantastic piece but it was alright for the price. Foie gras add on was absolutely pathetic. The piece which was no larger than a tablespoon, was divided into half from a piece! So no, do not ever add any foie gras - it's not a good deal and it's cheating consumers.

Crema Catalana (RM15)

This was done quite fairly alright except that the layer of sugar could be thinner. It was at least 2-3mm thick and it's almost impossible to do a perfect crack on top. I enjoyed the custard below, but forget about the layer of sugar.

Some hits and misses - I will not order Jamon Sampler and Foie Gras again. The rest of the items are alright for a second try. An additional note - the service is very friendly and we enjoyed the server's short conversations with us. Thank you for the hospitality!
