It has been a long time since I last blogged. Work got in the way and I have so many posts still awaiting me to write them, so here is the first of them. Also, since time is quite tight for me, I will be posting these without my usual cartoon titles.
I went to Milagro Spanish Restaurant located at Orchard Central, some time back with my sis to check out their lunch sets. It is located opposite 49 Seats and the restaurant has one of the best lighting, with a whole stretch of windows alongside the dining area.
We choose a table next to the windows. Each table comes with its own terrarium.
The lunch sets at Milagro comes in two courses ($19.90) and three courses ($25.90), and are available during the weekends too. You may also choose to order each of the courses alone.
Stuffed Piquillo Peppers Duo ($10). Piquillo peppers stuffed with cod brandada and manchego mousse. Savour the spiciness of the peppers with the saltiness of the cod and sweetness of the cheese.
Jamon Iberico De Bellota ($12). World-acclaimed ham of free-roaming acorn-fed Iberian pig naturally cured for at least two years. Well-marbled, complex, nutty and intensely flavoured.
Other interesting entrees include, Cold Soup Chupitos and Watermelon & Roma Tomato Salad.
Rosemary Roast Chicken, Spicy ($15), served with homemade piquillo peppers harissa. Certain portions of the chicken leg were rather dry for me and it was not as spicy as I would have preferred it to be.
Chicken A La Catalana ($19). Chicken leg braised in apricots, dried plums, pine nuts and white wine.
There are many other main courses to choose from and even a premium selection, which includes Solomillo Iberico and NZ Angus Ribeye Steak, for an additional $7.
For desserts, we started with the Grand Marnier Creme Brulee ($9). Rich custard infused with Grand Marnier cognac and orange zest, topped with a shell of hard caramel.
It was a no brainer for my sis. The moment she saw the cheese option, she was a goner. Murcian Wine Cheese ($9). Goat’s milk, cured in red wine. Creamy, mild and agreeable.
The Valrhona Molten Chocolate Cake and Torrija with Homemade Ice Cream from the dessert menu also sounded awesome too.
The best thing about this place is that there is no GST or service charge!
