Do note that alittle tashi is spelled in small letters. A new eatery concept offering communal dinning with mainly small plates and an array of sauces for mix and match at Jalan Besar. Located on highly competitive Tyrwhitt Road, along the same stretch with Creamery Boutique and Tiramisu Hero. Most would recall also Chye Seng Huat and also Wimbly Lu.
In any case, alittle tashi has a completely different concept from the big name in the area. It is a little playful with the design and the menu likewise.
First of all, diners can access the entrance either from the front or the back which is rare.
Depending on what you wanted at the restaurant, they have 3 menu. First is the small bites and the drink which diners could enjoy these items at the Laundry which has a back access to the alley.
alittle tashi is a quite playful, they lined up their “laundry line” at the backyard. Steps are offered both as tables and seats.
One of a insta-worthy small bite is the Mozzarella ($10). Diners could order a Spicy vegetable chips ($8) to complement their drinks too.
Together with an assortment of alcoholic drinks is a small selection of non-alcoholic beverage with Cold Press Sugar Cane as the highly recommended one.
For diners who want to enjoy some communal dinning can proceed to the Dinning area for sharing plates.
Begin with pickles such as Spicy Red Radish ($7) which is helpful to reduce the cloying feel of sauce and strong flavoured food served. And it is great for whetting the appetite too.
The visually unpleasing Brussels Sprouts ($12) is praiseworthy even for diners who dislike their vegetable. I don’t like this vegetable too however, I love this dish. The strong miso flavour masked the grassy bitter taste.
Don’t worry about having solely vegetables, there are some seafood and meat too. Tender grilled Squid ($20) with a Thai chilli dip is a recommended dish for seafood lover.
I would recommend the tasty flavourful succulent smokey Pork Skewers ($16).
If you need some carbohydrate, Rice Cake ($7) and Tashi Rice ($7) are available. The former is certainly my choice of carbo, this unassuming looking rice cake is fragrance and it tasted good even without any sauce.
Lastly, at alittle tashi, they offered an array of sauces such as Ssamjang (45), Skhug ($5) and Miso Cream ($5). They encourage diners to be experimental, pairing the various sauce with the plates.
Instead of wrapping up with dessert, this round with comfort Hot Salty Soya Milk ($9). Fried dough amount a savoury creamy soup with dash of Szechuan chilli oil. I am not a fan of Soya Milk, didn’t find favour with it.
Lastly, at little tashi, there is no service crew coming to the table side to take your order, instead diner has to approach the counter at the open kitchen which separate the dinning room and laundry to place their order. The consolation is food will be served.
If you enjoy communal dinning with some unusual offering, and especially when it is late night, why not try out alittle tashi.
