Black Ink No. 6 is attached to a property showroow of sorts, off the busy Yap Kwan Seng road, that offers an avenue for cozyness and confortness. So imagine this, right outside is a busy road – noises, car hons, the typical hustle and bustle of a city and located unassumingly at the side is this eatery. It offers you an escape from that hustle and bustle, it is almost as if it is in a world of its own. Small, yet quiet and welcoming.
So yea, you order your food at the counter. Menu may be small/limited but they offer quite a variety – from rice, to sandwiches and deserts.
Brownie, 9 ringgit
Since I was hungry, while waiting for the main meals to arrive, I decided to give their chocolate brownie a try. I sure am glad I did because it is one of the best brownie I’ve tasted in a long time, locally. Made by the folks of Black Ink themselves, this brownie has a touch of lightness and fluffiness, with just the right amount of chocolate and sugar – just nice, nothing overpowering.
Chicken Karaage Don, 18 ringgit
This dish comprised of bite size marinated chicken thigh + Taru Taru sauce + Mizuna Salad + Flavored Sushi Rice which basically is pieces of flavorful, cruncy fried chicken, some sprouts, home made tartar sauce/ mayonnaise? and soft, gooey rice. What I am used to with all these rice bowls are the semi done egg that usually accompanies it as it offers the ‘wetness & gooeyness’ to the dish as a whole. Here, there was no egg, however – with a dish of soggy rice + taru taru sauce, I guess the missing egg can be excused. I liked this dish. The tasteful crunchy chicken mixed with the rice offers you a mixed texture and flavors that does wonders in your mouth. Filling and yummy.
Toastie, 16 ringgit
Boy, this was delicious! If you are a sandwich and pesto fan – this dish is worth a try. Toastie is a combination of pesto + cheese + spinach + sunny side egg + mushroom + bread with a side of salad. First, there is a slice of toasted bread at the bottom with a generous amount of basil pesto spread on it. Above the pesto spread are 2 sunny side up eggs with a generous amount of sauteed mushrooms + cheddar cheese. Oooo man, sooooo yummy! A mix of crunciness from the bread, gooeyness from the egg and decadent cheezy mushrooms – simply da bomb. Loveee it.
Would I head here again?
I sure will. The coziness the eatery offers and good food, why not. Definitely coming back.
