Head on down to Repulse Bay and chill with good food, drinks and vibes at Sip Song.
Don’t you love it when you discover that the hype behind a restaurant is actually all true? Kind of like how we fell in love with Louise, Arbor and Confusion Plant Based Kitchen, our latest obsession in Sip Song in Repulse Bay, find out why.
Setting the scene
Okay, so we may be a little late to the party on this one, but we’re not in Repulse Bay every day, so we think we can be forgiven. Sitting at the bottom of The Pulse, just steps from the ocean, Sip Song has a vibrant atmosphere, full of colours, great music, a wonderful plant wall, and quirky artwork in mismatched frames: love!
Before our dinner, we went and chilled on the beach for an hour or two and watched the sunset (#totesromantico) before walking over to the absolutely packed restaurant on a Sunday night, so it’s definitely a great one for a little half-day excursion if you don’t live southside.
But what about the food?
To say we were impressed would be an understatement. Every single dish that we ordered wowed us, from the beautiful compressed watermelon salad which was the perfect choice to kick things off on a balmy evening to the Thai-style Scotch eggs, that were, as noted by a self-proclaimed Scotch egg connoisseur: “flavoursome and wonderfully spiced, with flavour, not spiciness”.
The crab omelette was out of this world: fluffy, packed full of crab, and served with a kind of spiced tomato sauce that worked perfectly. Another highlight was the veggie green curry that had loads of yummy vegetables, including those delightful small Thai eggplants I’m obsessed with, and lots of tofu too. The roti was flaky and the rice cooked to perfection. Don’t miss out on ordering the basil and straw mushrooms to up your veg quota too.
Surprisingly, the desserts may have blown us away the most. Banana roti pancakes with nutella and chocolate sauce took us back to long days exploring Phuket, and went perfectly with the coconut and corn ice cream that I could quite happily eat on the daily.
Cocktails were strong, service was amazing and the vibe had us feeling that we were in a different country.
If you can’t get away for a vacay, just head to Sip Song. See you there.
