We recently visited Ben's Independent Grocer to purchase some Wagyu Beef and decided to visit their cafe which was packed with locals and expats.
The Puff Pastry was quite flaky and the Bechamel Sauce was quite good with the chicken. The potatoes however were very dry.
The Beef was very tender but lacked Gravy from being over cooked in the oven as evident by the burnt top of the Pie.
This was Eric's order. The Quiche did not have a strong eggy flavor which I usually love when eating Quiche.
The Chicken was quite good. The skin was crisp but the meat was a little dry. The gravy that came with it was a little under salted.
I asked for extra Basil but it they only gave me several leaves. The Pizza had a nice thin crust that had some nice air pockets giving it a nice crunch. But it definitely lacked the flavor of Basil.
Sticky Date Pudding
The Pudding was moist and was good with the Ice Cream and melted Caramel with Walnuts.
Rocky Mountain Cake
I was hoping this would be good but it turned out to be very dry. The Marshmallow was very tough and chewy and the sponge layers were too dense and dry.
The Pie Crust was good but the Peaches did not have a strong peach flavor.
The food at BIG looked very good but tasted pretty bad from our mains to the desserts. We were all disappointed especially having been Ben's and Estate (restaurants owned by BIG owners) which were excellent.
