Restaurant Review: Medzs European Dining

By Friday, June 08, 2012 , , ,

Medzs is a 200 seater European/Mediterranean restaurant which is located at Basement Two of Orchard Central. I always walk past the restaurant when heading over to yoga class. The place works like Marché, which uses a card system to record your orders. There are 8 stations which provide a variety of cuisine from French, German, Greek, Turkish etc.

So finally one weekend when S and i dropped by to donate blood at the Orchard Central (he donated, i watched), we decided to give the Medzs a shot. This place is actually quite perfect for those who can't make up their mind on what to eat because there is quite a good mix of cuisines and cooking styles. 
For S$15, i thought the Duck Confit wasn't too shady. S thought that it was kinda pathetic for such a small leg at first but i'm not expect huge ones like those served at Le Bistrot (read about my review here). You get what you pay for. Surprisingly, the leg was cooked nicely. The skin was a thin golden brown crisp that crackles when you bite into it but the meat maintained its tender and moist texture. The meat may be a teeny bit leaning towards the salty side though. The sauce was a savory gravy that gave the meat a little more moisture. This is not a bad dish and it is almost comparable to La Petite.
I had the Beef Shish Kebab (S$11.90), which IMHO is fantastic. Piping hot and fresh beef on skewers, seasoned simply with spices, herbs, pepper and salt to bring out the natural flavors of the meat and served on a bed of vegetables. What more can you ask for? I love the Bulgur rice (If i wasn't mistaken) which was served with the meat. It has a nice tomato flavor to it and cooked almost like the Valencia Paella style with some diced peppers and onions. The short fat grains are fluffy, moist and slightly chewy and they go perfectly with the savory grilled meats. I would definitely be back to try the other kebab dishes. They look and smell fantastic.

I kinda like the place. What's not to love about fuss free dining in a comfortable and convenient location. I think it's best for big groups with diverse eating preferences. Simply pick a seat. Reserve it with a stone. Proceed to explore the place. Order your dish. Bring the buzzer back to seat. Wait for buzzer to vibrate. Collect your food. Dig it.
From now till July 2012, there is a 25% off Lunch Promo (12 - 2.30pm) and 10% off Dinner Promo (6-10pm) for UOB, DBS, POSB and HSBC cards. Head on down now!
