Tao's

When I say The Husband has NEVER praised a restaurant, I do not exaggerate. To my memory, it has never happened. In The Husband's world view, restaurants are a necessary evil of which the sole purpose is to indulge me... and keep me in a good mood so that life with me will be somewhat sweet (and largely bearable). The Husband is not difficult with food. Home-cooked food (of whatever quality I manage to make) is best. Hawker centre food comes a close second, and he is not the sort that will travel to faraway hawker centres where famous hawker stalls are located. When I say hawker centre food, I mean the 3 hawker centres near our home.

So, when I dragged him to POMO at Selegie Road to sample Tao's 6-course lunch, The Husband went along in an amiable and companionable spirit. After so many years of marriage, he is resigned to the fact that this is part of what he has to do to preserve our marriage - indulge The Wife's palate.

By the end of the lunch, The Husband was raving. He loved what he ate and he loved the price he paid - $21.90 for 6 courses. All decently made and nicely presented. I'm sorry the pictures don't do justice to the dishes

Nice fluffy toasted bread.
Prawn roll with pork floss
Melon Potage
Very thick mushroom soup
Fruit teas - Delish!!
Melt in your mouth baby back ribs
Steak
Tiramisu

If your hubby likes Tao, you should bring him to Dozo restaurant at Valley Point for their set lunch. Think it's by the same group...
Wonderful set lunch at affordable price ; )
