We haven't been here for a while, but it was lovely when the staff still recognised us when we stepped in for dinner one night. I mean, they remembered our favourite table, how's that for service?
We got the Mac and Cheese ($17.50) and opted for an additional topping of roasted chicken to share. Seah Street Deli does one of the best renditions of this classic American comfort food around. The creamy cheese was baked to a golden-hued perfection and had a nuanced richness.The roasted chicken added extra texture and balanced the sweetness of the cheese with its savoury flavours.
The BF chose the Broadway ($25), a combination of a quarter roasted chicken and half rack baby pork ribs. As usual, we switched the potato wedges with mashed potatoes instead. The tender ribs were nicely glazed with a spiced bbq sauce. This was obviously marinated for a while, because the meat was completely infused with flavour. It was the same with the chicken breast, and although we weren't fans of breast meat, we liked that it was surprisingly moist.
We also got a side of Sauteed Mushrooms ($7), assorted shitake with white and brown button mushrooms lightly sauteed with olive oil and aromatic herbs. I love the heady earthiness of this dish.
