Having opened a few months ago, I’d been meaning to pay Feast a visit for a while. It’s quite nearby my abode, but I’m often a bit slow on the uptake with seemingly convenient places.
On a night when lots of bars and restaurants looked to be very quiet, perhaps because it was just before pay day, I found the place sparsely populated. That can often be a recipe for awkward hovering service, as with my visit to the Verandah, but my waitress judged things very well, keeping things attentive but relaxed.
Their seafood selection seemed prominently placed on the extensive menu so I chose the salt and chilli squid for main to follow a starter of rainbow beancurd soup.
The soup looked a little gluey in texture, but proved to be very tasty with plenty of diverse vegetable colour as the name suggested and good textural variance.
The main course was every bit as good with bubblingly crisp chunks of squid packing a good chilli kick. It was the kind thing of which I could have eaten about a hundredweight. The accompanying fried rice was tasty.
So overall, I was impressed with Feast. I was delighted with both dishes they served me and enjoyed the assured service. I look forward to visiting again, soon.
