We heard very positive Tin Hill Social reviews before we dined at the restaurant located within the Horse City, near The Grandstand. As such I admit that the bar was set high for them. In summary, they didn’t disappoint. Gorgeous Space with delicious food, that is near perfection, what else could I ask for. And we, at NAHMJ, urge you to read on to find out an insane promotion by Advocado app, we assure you that you will not regret to know about it. And if you approve of it, don’t forget to share with your friends.
Tin Hill Social consisting of a kitchen and a bar, is hidden amidst the greenery, secluded; hence the title hidden gem is well-deserved. Upon entering, the beautiful Al Fresco dining area caught our attention instantaneously. It was so gorgeous till it fits for a wedding.
Indoor is rather dim; comparing with the outdoor, it isn’t as alluring but certainly cosy.
We tried a total of 3 appetisers from the menu at Tin Hill Social Kitchen. Starting with Fried Chicken Wings, Sriacha, Corriander ($14) varied in saltiness. Some felt salty, while some felt bland, though I thought it was perfect. I suppose it has to do with the marination and the amount of salt scattered on the wings.
Followed by the Fried Kelong Prawns, Somac, Yoghurt, Mint ($14). For those who doesn’t like to eat the shell of the prawns may hesitate, but no worry, it was so crispy equivalent to a better. In fact, better since it doesn’t absorb as much oil. To enjoy the maximize flavour, do eat it with the somac, yohurt and mint. Otherwise, it will be in its natural goodness.
One man’s meat is another man’s poison, absolutely true for the dish, Aberdeen Angus Sirloin Steak Tartare, Italian Black Truffle, Grana Padano, Crostini’s ($14). Due to raw beef in the dish, not many could appreciate. For those who do, fully relish on this item.
Moving on to Mains, a total of 6 dishes. Beginning with the amazing Roast Sweet Potato, Goat’s Cheese, Kale, Thyme Infused Honey, Quinao, Black Garlic Puree, Hazelnut ($24.50). This plate full of superfood was tasty. The combination of the various natural ingredients not only complemented each other but most importantly, they elevated each other to bring out the best of others. However due to the presence of Goat’s Cheese, not all love it.
Tin Hill Seafood Stew ($32) is a must when dining at Tin Hill Social, especially if you love Seafood and Tomato. Even for non-tomato lover like myself couldn’t resist the charm of this dish. The seafood flavour in the stew was manifested among the tomato puree.
Here comes the crowd favourite, Campania Pizza topped with Mozzarellla, Burratina, lightly dehydrated Heirloom Tomato and Fresh Basil. The pizza dough was thin but yet with a light bread-like texture. It was worthy of every calorie.
If your are dining in a large group, we would highly recommend the Whisky Dry Aged Australian Grain Fed Wagyu Rump ($110). The smoky with hard liquor hint in the beef slices were a hit with all beef lovers. We thought it was at an attractive price-point.
There are 2 other highly recommended beef dishes at Tin Hill Social. First and foremost is the Slow Braised Beef Short Rib Pie ($28.50). Beneath the butter crusty pastry was melt-in-the-mouth short rib beef infused with bold and intense flavours. Such texture was achieved due to hours of slow braised.
As an alternative beef item, opt for the signature dish of Tin Hill Social, the Tin Hill Rangers Valley Black Angus Brisket Burger ($28.50). Instead of presenting the burger with beef patty which was the norm, thick slices of tender brisket sandwich between pillowy-soft sesame fun was used instead. Pairing it with other then fries but with addictive sweet potato fries.
Finally, ending the meal with 2 desserts, a sweet and a sour. A choice, very much depending on individual preference. Starting with the Valrhona Moelleux, Textures of Raspberry, Chocolate Soil which no chocolate lovers would resist. The raspberry was a good add to reduce the cloying feel that one would usual associate with chocolate.
Next was my favourite Lemon & Passionfruit Delicious, Passion Curd, Chantilly, Lemongrass Sorbet, Weaver Ants ($15). Did you notice something unusual in the description of the dessert? Yes! ANTS! Ants was a choice to showcase a different view of local ingredients used. Tin Hill Social would love diners to think of them as spicy citrus caviar. Will it be a “Yay” or “Nay” for you?
Assortment of drinks are available at Tin Hill Social with both alcoholics and non-alcoholics.
An exceptional choice is the Strawberry Hill Mocktail. We love it as it was lightly sweetened with bites of fruits. Its appearance was attractive and appetising too.
Should diners be looking for alcoholic drinks, a handful of recommendation such as the equally pretty Butterfly Pea G&T, Bitters ($16). For the spice lover, why not experience spiciness amidst refreshing in the Wiwat’s Next of Kin ($16). Or else pair your food with Saint Clair Vicar’s Choice Sauvignon Blanc 2016 ($12 Glass / $55 Bottle) or Saint Clair Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015 ($12 Glass / $55 Bottle).
