Assembly Ground, The Cathay

It is probably the in thing now to have a cafe attached to your boutique and generally just channeling the hipster vibe everywhere. The hipster vibe was definitely there at the Assembly Ground but sigh, the food was truly not up to scratch. We had the Entertainer App (thank god!) so it was one-for-one for the mains. An obligatory hipster picture of an empty chair hurhur.

Truffle Fries ($12) was probably the only thing at Assembly Ground which I found satisfactory but still not fantastic.

The Grilled Portobello Burger ($20) came with portobello, mushroom jerky, cheese and spiced fries. This was extremely sweet for some reason. I was not expecting a sweet burger and was completely caught off guard.

Smoked Salmon and Asparagus Pasta ($19) in cream sauce. The cream was very heavy yet bland so I had a very bad pasta dish. I was just fighting to keep the pasta down and I gave up after a while. Also, $19 for a few thin slices of smoked salmon and some diced asparagus was really steep. Thank god for the Entertainer App again.

Nope, not returning. Not even if I have the Entertainer App.
