It’s a bar, a restaurant & a deli shop in one! Ampersand is conformable to whichever mood you want to fill for the day – a chill drink by the bar, make-your-own sandwich at the deli area or a hefty meal at the restaurant.
The indoor dining area is set at the middle of the space, with the bar on the right and the deli section on the left. Ampersand’s bedecking exudes a mix of classic chic but with a modern appeal; and the warm lights give an overall inviting, homey and intimate allure to its charisma.
Using mostly fresh produce, Ampersand’s kitchen promises crisp flavors and interesting mix of local and international sapor.
Started our feast with a glass of Hendricks Jive, the house’ special concoction made with Hendricks gin, basil mint and strawberries. The Roasted Kalabasa Soup was next on the bill which came a few minutes after -interesting smokey and creamy base with squash bits; made me want an additional serving the moment my soup spoon hit the base. Gladly, it didn’t took long for the mains to be served. Had the Ampersand’s 32-day dry aged Prime US Angus Rib Eye first, which instantly became my personal favorite – done medium rare, perfectly juicy and tender, and was awesome with the caramelized onions and gravy. The Seafood Risotto also made my personal list of must-go-back-and-eat-this-again list at Ampersand. And the Fresh Strawberry & Mango Pavlova and the Chocolate Ganache Cakes were the perfect feast ender.
Impressed with what my first Ampersand experience, you wouldn’t wonder seeing me here frequently. See you? (Raising my glass of Ampersand’s K8) Cheers! 😉
