Watts on Crown reminds me of a good old French bistro on many points.
The food they serve is homely and warming. The type of comfort food you long for come winter… I loved their sunday roast beef and the mud crab entree. We came here with a Groupon Voucher and would return without one since the quality of the food was outstanding and worth the full price. We had a menu to choose from:
And as usual, what was a 3-course menu was magically turned into a 6-course one, as Monsieur and I share every plate!
This means that I’m “sacrificing” half of my beloved crab and avo entrée… to get a bit of quail. The crab avo was delicious, the meatiness of the crab paired with the avocado’s softness is always a classic though great combination. Lime mayonnaise brings in, another dimension. Lovely!
The grilled quail is great, I’ve always been a huge quail fan… as this game is typically associated with Christmassy flavours… Perfect for Christmas in July! That said, I preferred the crab and avo combination, possibly because these flavours are more delicate?
Choosing among 7 different types of main wasn’t easy! Both of us felt like having the Sunday roast, so we had to settle for a fish dish… We went for a morwong fillet, a white fish. The fish fillet was great, and I loved the crust on top, but found the flavours to be lighter than what I had expected.
The Sunday roast was by far, the winning dish. The roast beef was perfectly cooked, with a garlicky touch that was just spot on. The serve was quite generous, and finishing the whole plate was a bit of a struggle.
Poached nectarine was a great dessert, and my favourite (Monsieur preferred his) The nectarine was poached in spices, giving it a delicate chai like flavour. Outstanding!
