Comfortable setting with good brunch foods; albeit pricey. The eclectic and hipster decor is definitely pleasant for casual meetings however and i will be back!
Except you gotta wait a bit longer in a stuffy cafe, overall the service and food are good!
Love this place! Especially the Sunday roast reminds me of home 🙂
Amazing menu last night. Coming back tonight! Jamie as guest chef is a top choice guys. I had the duck which was excellent and the burrata with beets which was inspiring!
Excellent lunch @ Rabbit Carrot Gun which provides leisure dining experience at it's best. Having walked by this very welcoming looking corner pub and restaurant on East Coast Road near Katong I12 mall several times, we finally managed to have lunch at this friendly neighborhood eatery. The atmosphere is casual, but make no mistake: the chefs know their business very well and offer delightful food in healthy portions and using the freshest ingredients. We were very happy with the menu choices and enjoyed the quality drinks as well. Service is friendly, efficient and we saw quite a number of regulars being chatted up by the owners who clearly love what they are doing. This is a great place to have a meal and/or casual drink in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and we shall certainly be back. Excellent choice, and highly recommend.
I have eaten at Rabbit Carrot Gun one a few occasions and always found the food to be excellent, last night was no exception. It was a guest chef for an event called Quince Pop Up with Chef Julien Perraudin. We were 6 for the meal and myself vegetarian and no one left disappointed including me. Chef Julien is known for his vegetable cooking skills so when we got a chance to talk about it he said vegetables are very underrated in most kitchens and he sees them as the main star of the show and uses them whenever he can, so very impressed! The one stand out dish was his Quince dessert, blew everybody away! He is starting a new restaurant aptly called Quince in Vietnam in September!
The meal was disappointing. There is obviously going to be some discrepancy between what is advertised and then what is delivered to your plate, but in this instance the difference between the two was startling. My grilled goats cheese starter was shockingly bad. I was served a plate of what was essentially biscuits with a smeared with a very thin layer of goats cheese. The champagne sorbet consisted of a 'thimble' of sorbet that barely left a taste in the mouth and should certainly not being listed as a course. The 'turkey dinner with all the trimmings' was a let down. The duck fat roast potatoes looked like they had been scrapped off the bottom of the roasting tin, large fluffy potatoes they were not. The vegetables were fine except everything was cold and the portions… 'size is everything' except at the Rabbit, Carrot Gun restaurant, if you are on a diet then this the place to go. Big they are not. The worst part of the meal was the quality of the turkey meat. We were given 'bits' not slices of of dark meat, some of it belonging to the giblets (or so it appeared). We had to ask for extra breast meat which arrived on a small side plate again in a pile of 'bits', again cold. The desserts and cheese platter were fine, if small portioned. The service was adequate, although we were served water in an odd assort of different glasses. It's always a risk going out for any meal to somewhere new, particularly for Christmas Day lunch. But this restaurant had been recommended to us by a number of people and with that and the general perception of what the 'Christmas Feast' promised failed to live upto even the most realistic expectations.
Looking for a new place for lunch today, we decided to try this cafe situated at the corner, opposite Katong Plaza. We quite remember its cute name and quirky décor the last time we were in the area, so we just went straight in without thinking much. We spent an hour in there, and noticed a large number of its visitors were expats or tourists. Perhaps it is due to the fact that it also provides accommodation- really pretty, boutique level decorated kinds (http://www.rabbit-carrot-gun.com/sleep-2/) as the photos show. I wouldn't mind staying a night here ;) The whole space is no very big, small and cosy. No air-con, but it is surprisingly breezy for a 1 pm afternoon. Prices are mostly below $20. The portion of their Signature Brunch Dish, Gamekeeper's Shooting Breakfast ($19.50) is the largest among all. More of a lunch portion than for brunch. The flavours are pretty average. Nothing really interesting. Comes with Sausage, Bacon, Mushrooms, Baked Beans, Tomatoes, Choice of Eggs, Sourdough Toast. I am not sure if it deserves the 'Signature' title... On the menu, it says Mushrooms & Spinach On Toast ($15) comes with a pair of soft poached eggs served on sourdough toast, but the egg is overcooked so much the egg's pretty much stuck in the middle of hard-boiled and poached, that we'd rather much prefer it to be hard-boiled if it is not going to be poached. But the major turn-off is the vinegar. There is way too much of it, that the entire dish was extremely sourish. It could have been a very simple and pleasant dish... The Gourmet Beef Burger ($19) had grandest entrance.... (For the complete review and photos, click here: http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2015/03/rabbit-carrot-gun-katong.html)
I expected a lot more from this place, having seen positive reviews before going. My companion and i ordered the Beef Wellington, their signature dish ($59++ for 2 persons), and it was actually very good. But the good points end there. The attitude of the servers, particularly the one man who took our order, was terrible. When ordering, as soon as i informed him we would be using a 1-for-1 coupon, his face turned black with contempt. He kept this face on throughout our stay there. He also did not know or forgot that the coupon was n.a. with the Beef Wellington, so in the end i was forced to accept a lesser discount. The decor and atmosphere was nothing notable, unlike what i had expected from descriptions of the place - English country home-styled furniture and fittings? More like a random assortment of lackluster art pieces and generic wooden furniture. Finally, besides the Beef Wellington there was about one item in each section of the menu (Starters, Mains, Salads & Quiches, and Desserts) that was interesting and seemed authentically English, which reviews tend to highlight. What they failed to mention is that all the other items are disappointingly uninspired, reflecting the kinds of vague 'Western' food that Singaporeans are all too familiar with, with generic descriptions and ingredients. Not to mention completely undeserving of the kind of prices they were asking.
The last time I went to Rabbit Carrot Gun was pleasant, however, this last visit was rather disappointing. Service was slower than usual and the food, although good, was not as great as it used to be. My Steak Frites came out cold, my Girlfriend's eggs benedict had bread that was rock hard. To be perfectly clear, don't take this review as a bad one. It is a fine establishment with great food. I just feel that this particular visit of mine, was less than ideal.
