For this particular visit, I’m sure the culprit must be the pitcher of Aloe Vera Mojito ($16.5) shared among two girls. Yep. That must be it.
This was refreshing. I liked chewing on the mint leaves but there really aren’t that much aloe vera bits. Also, despite downing the whole pitcher, we didn’t really get that drunk, which means there really wasn’t that much booze in it. We did still manage to get a decent light buzz though.
I’m addicted to avocados lately so anything with that in it catches my attention. I picked this Prawns & Avocado Wasabi mayo Tartar ($6.80) because of that.
It was a light, refreshing dish. The prawns were actually cooked which surprised me as I was expecting sashimi-style like how a tuna/beef/salmon tartar would’ve been. The fact that it’s cooked prawns and contributes to the fact that it yields little prawn taste to this. It was more avocado than anything.
The wasabi aspect was detectable but not overwhelmingly-so, which was fine my me. This tasted awesome when eaten atop the supplied prawn chips…but now that I think about it…it’s probably because the prawn chips had more flavor than the main attraction.
We knew from the get-go we wanted deep-fried prawn heads, so we ordered the Amaebi sashimi ($6.80).
