I was expecting a bit more at R&B

&B stands for Research and Bakery but foodwise, some of the dishes were creative but could have tasted better.

Chicken nuggets:

Chicken nuggets seasoned with lemon, pepper and garlic.
They are different to the usual nuggets because they are pieces of chicken with the skin attached to it.
The chicken was surprisingly juicy with a light crispy coating with a fragrant cracked black pepper taste.
Caramelized cauliflower:

Cauliflower with Shallots, cane sugar and smoked paprika.
I found them too sweet but the lemon was good for toning the sweetness.
Tea Ball:
Apart from tea, the other drinks were also fun to order such as the chocolate where you are given a bar of chocolate with hot milk to mix together.

Although the tea was presented nicely, it did not steep well and the tea flavour did not diffuse through the ball which was made of thick paper.

By the time the tea did infuse properly the tea was cold!
Potato brick:

Slices of potato with truffle cheese, cream and basil.
As soon as it arrived, the cream on top slid off.
It was thinly sliced potatoes stacked in a neat brick shape similar to potato dauphinoise.
Apart from the artsy fartsy presentation, it just tasted like ordinary potato slices with cream and a hint of truffle.
The basil was wasted because you could not taste it and it was just there as a garnishing.
Fisherman's chips:

seafood, shoestring potatoes, lemon aioli.
It was rather creative that they fried the piece of lemon as well.
This dish actually tasted quite nice because the chips were freshly cut and thin while the seafood was crispy coated in delicate coating.
Buttermilk fried chicken benedict:

egg, biscuit, buffalo hollandaise
The chicken was similar to the fried chicken nuggets ordered before but the biscuit was a bit too sweet and dry for my liking.
