The Girl + The Bull
This time, it was G who had been wanting to try out The Girl + The Bull, as his colleague at work had been there THREE times in the past months! We’ve never been to the BF Homes area so it took us a while to find the restaurant; and of course, when we did, we saw that their door had the sign:
Yep, you’ve found us.
Apparently, The Girl + The Bull is owned by a young couple, with the girl (with her signature green hair, wasn’t able to get her photo though) there to greet the guests, take their orders, etc, and the bull (the chef) there to take care of all the delicious food (made from local and organic ingredients, of course!) we were about to enjoy.
I really, really loved the restaurant’s artsy interiors. I would definitely want to do a photo wall like this for our own house soon!
Now for the food. For starters, we had the Buttermilk Fried Cauliflower, which was fried cauliflower coated in buttermilk breading, tossed in gochujang, soy, honey, sesame, and served with a lime wedge. The cauliflower was juicy and tender and had a nice spicy-salty-sour kick to it.
We then had the Grass-Fed Beef Tenderloin, which was a pretty sight to behold! It had “blue cheese emulsion, brown butter, squid ink, potato purée, torched shiitake, maple red cabbage, and leek roots.” The beef melted in your mouth and the thick squid ink certainly added a unique flavor to it.
We also had the Buttermilk Fried Chicken, which was served with cinnamon sugar beignets, pommery mustard and a sweet balsamic maple syrup. The breading was fried to a flavorful crisp and the chicken meat inside was very flavorful and juicy. I was a little surprised about the beignets being part of this dish but I liked them nonetheless - they were like airy cinnamon doughnuts. (Tip: The Buttermilk Fried Chicken is only available on Fridays and Saturdays so make sure to be there on the right day if you want to try this too.)
Here’s another shot of our scruptious dinner.
And of course, for dessert, we just had to have their famous Faux Twix, which was thick shortbread, sticky caramel and thick bittersweet chocolate, topped with sea salt. Both G and I love Twix bars and this was definitely a delicious recreation of one of our favorite sweets!
If you want to try The Girl + The Bull, I highly recommend you make reservations beforehand because the place gets packed really quickly. Would certainly go back to try their other dishes next time!
