Food For Thought @ 8 Queens Street

It was a surprised birthday dinner for Momo. A group of friends wanted to treat Momo dinner.
In these days of instant communication, this was planned over MSN and whatsapp! in a few days only haha..

She was told it was just a dinner with 4 friends. But in fact around 10 people were coming.

The things we do to give people surprises: A long table for 10 had been booked at Food For Thought @ 8Q. As this place has glass all over, Momo could see who's inside even before going to the bistro. To make it more 'real', the 4 friends were to sit at a single table first. So when Momo and I went in, she only saw 2 other friends. We then asked her to place order for her food.

Two minutes later, the rest all walked out from the back of the bistro. They sang Happy Birthday out loud and brought out this Pistachio Cherry cake from Rive Gauche.

Oh, she was surprised for sure. With the loud singing, her faced turned red!

This cake was bought from Rive Gauche. It was a great choice!

If you watch the Channel 8, 9PM show last night you would have seen this place on TV! I saw this verse on TV and recognised it was this place. A tweet from @FFThought confirmed it and showed this link where they filmed the show 4 months ago.

*** Chinese Chicken Salad ***

Momo and I and the people beside us shared this. If you like the Japanese tamago, where the yolk is soft and white slightly firm, you will like this! The salads are fresh and the ikan bilis gave it a crunch. The dressing is soy based with soya and ginger. But we did not quite like the chicken. It was a bit dry.

*** Hoisin Har Cheong Baby Back Ribs ***

This was my main course. You all know I love ribs, so I will be biased. The ribs are soft and really fragrant. You can see the slight char on it that gave it a nice caramelized taste. Let me warn you, it's salty!

The potato gratin behind was kinda nice. Those orange looking thing on the salad were tomatoes. It was warm! It was roasted. Nice touch.

*** Crispy Curry Chicken & Spicy Chilli Fries ***

Momo had this. When we ordered curry, we were not expecting this to come out!
But if you are a fan of fried crispy chicken, it's your kind of food! If you are expecting the traditional chicken curry, you are in for a surprise.

This particular plate Momo had was crispy outside and inside it was still a little moist. Momo liked her chilli fries. Thick cut potato pieces.

For the rest of the food, we did not really taste it. Some of them are 'new friends' to me. Also, the table is a bit long with so many of us. It's 'pai seh' to taste their food. I just took photos. You can use for reference to their menu online which has only text. ;-)

This was the Sage Roasted Pumpkin Risotto.

Two friends had the Broccoli and Bacon Risotto.

The Chunky Sausage & Tomato Linguine.
I love sausages and I think I might try this the next time!

The Garlic Prawns and Coriander Linguine.

The Creamy Beef Striploin Linguine.
Compared to the the rest this looks messy. lol...

The Grilled Vegetable Linguine makes me wanna eat it though.
I think it's because I like eggplant! ;-)

Happy Birthday Momo!
Hope you liked the surprise.

Happy birthday to MOMO also!

I've had the chunky sausage tomato pasta, it's pretty good! But I see their risotto looks really dry, like normal cooked rice already.

Haha, I can imagine Momo turning red with the surprise! So fun!

I've not been to FFT either.
The pastas actually look good!
