Papparich @ The Glen @ Thursday, April 16, 2020

Tuesday 17th March

It's been 5 days since events were cancelled and soon after all the theatres, museums and libraries closed. But here it's Day 3 at PappaRich upstairs in the new outdoor dinning area at The Glen, after just opening three days ago. 

Papparich used to be on the main street, packed with tables very close just like at QV. But here it's large and airy, I love that the four groups and literally spread out across the restaurant and not in one section for easy service (it was the start of rona at the time). As it's new it's super clean! Modern and not QV hawker style crowded (from what we've seen on tv) at all.

Nasi Lemak with Curry Chicken
Infused steamed coconut rice served with curry chicken, fried anchovies 
& groundnut, hard boiled egg, cucumber slices and our spicy savoury sambal.

Celebrating 8yrs they're doing $8 offers daily and today it's nasi lemak, they out of coconut rice so we got chicken rice with the curry chicken. Tender chicken with lots of flavour, hold the chili, it was perfect. Definitely going to return for other offers.

When we got there at 6.30pm there were only four other tables though by 8pm it was a third full. I do feel like you have to know it's here to find it, as it's not really advertised much, sadly not a good time to have an opening party. .

A waitress took my order, as it was quiet, but they have ipads at each time, and a door bell and pad. The layout is completely different from the QV food court feel and Nunawading one, you could actually take a date here. 

Hainan Toast with Kaya Butter

Back on a Saturday night for the $8 offer of the day, kaya and butter toast dipped in soft boiled egg was a new experience. Counter guy says it's a personal experience where some like to add salt, pepper and soy sauce to the egg. Andy suggested dipping the toast in condense milk but then I think the flavours of the kaya would be lost as it's so sweet?

I really like the toast, though don't think I'm going to drink soft boiled egg again as much as I do love egg and soldiers (when le beau makes it). It was a weird combo...

9pm last orders on a Saturday night with staff to diner ratio was close to 1:1. 
Service was very friendly.

Update - The Glen location is closed till further notice, like all the other places in the new outdoor dinning area.
