platypus test kitchen

Ventilation along Clifford Centre is pretty bad – walking out without smelling like what you ate is nearly impossible. Platypus test kitchen is yet another.

table cards

Place your order at the counter, take a number and wait for food to be served. It really is as simple as it sounds.


Handmade Meatballs ($8.90)
Tender meatballs in pomodoro sauce

Pomodoro sauce was a tad too salty though the meatballs were pretty good.


Garlic Shrimp ($5.90)
Prawns sautéed in olive oil, garlic and finished with parsley

Decent one once again, well marinated crystal prawns with garlic flakes!

wild rocket salad

Looked absolutely like a snowy mountain cap with the parmesan cheese rained on it.

crispy duck salad

Baby Greens and Crispy Duck Salad ($10.50)
Crispy duck confit, baby greens, orange vinaigrette

I was sold on crispy duck confit and well, was introduced to a different interpretation of duck confit. Fried to a crisp, the duck shreds were so fine that you barely taste it. Baby greens were a tad course – I’ve honestly never had these sprigs of greens before, those with curly wurls of tendrils sprouting out. I already make my salad sound like a green monster. The orange slices and tomatoes did give this a sweet finish though. Not one of the bestest eaten, neither was it worst – starting off earthy and ended up decent.

Ask me not why this meal ended up picking everything else but their signature pasta which every other table spotted. Perhaps next time!

  1. I had the worst cod ever here. So fishy! + really bad service encountered. This place is on my black list.
