The Rotisserie, Telok Ayer St

After visiting our new office, the colleague (our resident Aussie-phile) suggested lunch at the The Rotisserie. I think it promising to know we have more lunch options in the area but noone is exactly looking forward to the crowds. Oh well, win some, lose some. 

At $12 for the cheapest main dish, it doesn't seem like the regular daily meal for most white collar workers but golly, the portions are sizeable with a capital "Z" for zzz. The four of us shared 3 platters and we were stuffed by the end of our meal - thank goodness we only had to deal with a team offsite after that and nothing too intellectually challenging.

So good! So here it a close up... 

I love a hearty quiche so the spinach feta quiche was right up my alley. The highlight, according to any cardiologist, was the pork knuckle, a juicy tender chuck rimmed with fat and crackling skin. Oddly enough (or maybe not so oddly because chicken to me is boring), I found their signature roasted chicken blah, and the mystery brown gravy did nothing to primp or pimp up the dish.

For sides, the quinoa, red rice and lentil salad was a toothsome yummy treat, compared to theirs (mashed potato, potato salad, corn, roasted cauliflower) that were more pedestrian than traffic-stopping.
