Five & Dime

Finally got a chance to visit Five & Dime! It had caught my eye a couple of times on the way to work. Love the branding.

What we had:

1. Salmon Rocket Salad, $18

Flame salmon on rocket with wasabi mirin dressing

Very generous with the salmon, dressing was nicely balanced – not too overpoweringly sweet. (couldn’t taste the wasabi though?) Might be too much for one person, was just nice to share between us.

2. Wagyu Pasta, $24

Spaghetti with Wagyu beef in yakiniku sauce

I like! Thought the pasta was well done, beef wasn’t overpowered by any sort of marinade, spagetti went well with the yakiniku sauce. Only gripe? It was too oily :< check it out:

3.  You Tiao Churros, $10

With dark chocolate dip and vanilla ice cream

I devoured one first without the accompanying sides – mistake. Was like, hey, its just you tiao (chinese fried dough fritters) lor! But it tasted much better with the ice cream and dip together! Everything is sub-par when consumed individually. Nah, serving suggestion:
