Chalk

Tuna carpaccio

On a rare decision to go out to eat on a Sunday night, D and I were surprised to find a lot of the places we wanted to eat at were closed on Sundays. Fortunately we found Chalk to be open and so off we went to the top of Mount Sophia at the Old School.

Surprised at the size of the restaurant (big), we were also pleasantly surprised by the friendly, attentive and competent staff. There’s a lovely outdoor area for those who like alfresco dining with a great view of the Dhoby Ghaut which D and I always think would be nice if it weren’t for the humidity that would ultimately spoil an evening for us.

For starters D had a tuna carpaccio and I had a rocket rolled in prosciutto with fresh fig salad. Both were very well done, with delicate and strong flavours perfectly complementing each other. The tuna was wafer thin, and the prosciutto, rocket and fig were a wonderful combination of salt and sweet with a touch of peppery sharpness.

Mains were equally as delicious – nothing remarkable but solidly good.  I had the ribeye steak, D, the lamb chops.  Big servings – enough to fill us up to not have any space for dessert.   Very nice place for a cosy dinner.
