Mis En Place @ 39 East Coast Road
Big kudos to the HGW kakis for keeping me in the loop for this new find~! Coincidentally, I was bound to split 3ways for dinner, but I simply couldn’t decline the impromptu offer to visit a spanking new joint.
Mis En Place translated means Implemented, established, or, putting in place. And I’ll have to say it is the Chef’s Pride & Passion implemented. Location is not a feat to find, the simple setup is not intimidating, and glossing the menu will set your mind at ease to order a feast.
We were a party of 5, and so we decided to do it communion style; everyone gets a bit of every dish for taste.
There’s too many to list, but I’ll make special mention of the highlights that won my gut over:
Roast chicken – I have to say its probably the best roast chicken I’ve had in a long while. Doneness was thorough (no blood trace near the bones), yet not dry & flaky. Flavored to the core, you can taste the brine in every bite.
In my opinion, given the set lunch menu, as well as the ala carte menu, and having tried the goodness of what this joint has to offer, there is hardly any reason not to visit, revisit & drag friends to this place.
Closed on Mondays. Open throughout the rest of the week from lunch till late, and I was given to understand that brunch is in the making… you’ll have to go hear it for yourself.
