DINING OUT: TRUE SOUTH, BLACK ROCK

Now that the chill is setting in, I'm finding myself reminiscing the sunlight that seems to shine forever and beautiful summer flavours. This brings to mind of a restaurant that some friends and I visited on my birthday back in January.

After visiting our friend's newborn baby in a hospital nearby, we couldn't resist the beautiful warm evening and decided to dine at True South, a stone's throw away from Black Rock beach. The former mechanic's garage has been transformed into a flash bar and dining space.


On that particular evening, the space was buzzing with local folks and beach-goers enjoying the evening with a beer or two, good food and good company. It doesn't hurt that the restaurant overlooks the beautiful coastline.


True South's menu is modern Argentinian food with Italian and Spanish influences. So, expect tapas-style menu and sharing plates. For those seeking for gluten-free and vegetarian options, you will be pleased to know that True South offers many delicious options too, such as the quinoa salad with warm roasted vegetables, pistachios and smoked yoghurt.


We also ordered the Ceviche de Vieiras, which is raw scallops, red onion, lime chilli and sweet corn. It was a super refreshing dish and lots of fresh flavours.


The highlight of the night is no doubt the Carrileras Guisadas, which is braised grass fed angus cheeks, cauliflower cous cous and spiced almonds. Look at that angus cheek in all its gelatinous, melt-in-your-mouth glory! The flavoursome braising and meat juice soaks through the cauliflower cous cous, making it a tummy-warming comfort food, great for all seasons. 

Looking back at these pictures taken at True South makes me want to revisit the restaurant again. While I was looking at their website, I also found out that True South has a great function space upstairs with a private bar and balcony overlooking the beach, perfect for a casual but memorable wedding. I am definitely putting the restaurant on my shortlist of wedding venues to consider.
