7 Things to do this weekend: 25 & 26 June 2022
Film, whisky, and healthy living
1. (Re)visit your friendly neighbourhood restaurant, Table & Apron
Where: 23, Jalan SS 20/11, Damansara Kim, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
“When talking about neighbourhood restaurants, we often think of comfort food in an unpretentious setting. What makes Table & Apron stand out in this regard is how it offers both, without shying away from innovation and experimentation. I experienced a taste of this while celebrating the restaurant’s 8th anniversary recently, which saw a curated menu featuring some signature dishes as well as reinterpretations of crowd-favourites.
“For example, the Duck Confit Risotto offered a heartwarming, flavourful combination of Japanese pearl rice, salted black bean, and Chinese olives, topped with crunchy pickled daikon. The Pork Ribs in Pineapple Glaze was fall-off-the-bone tender, with a sweet and savoury smack that paired well with the tamarind and chilli dip. One of my favourite dishes of the evening was the Buckwheat Fried Catfish—call it the seafood version of their popular Buckwheat Fried Chicken, if you will. It was everything a fish and chips (minus the chips) should be: hot, crispy, and undeniably tasty.
“Food aside, I daresay it’s the warm hospitality and humble staff here that keeps drawing customers back. If you haven’t already paid them a visit (or even if you have), you won’t regret dropping by.” —Natalie Khoo, Lifestyle Editor
