The hunt for the best mashed potato in Singapore, part 9


For this post in the series, I shall write about Billy Bombers' mashed potato. May it bring some simple pleasure to my friend to whom I dedicated this entire series to.

I sampled this on 1 Dec 2008. I wanted some time away from the restaurant so I asked for a take-away from the Marina Square outlet. Each take-away serving of the mashed potato costs $4.20 (with GST).

For the mashed potato from Billy Bombers, one can find bits of potato skin in it. I like its earthly flavour, and it seems that quality potato was used to make the dish. The mashed potato has a creamy and buttery texture that I quite like.

The sauce felt a little salty on its own, but when it is eaten with a generous serving of the mashed potato, it actually helps to bring out the earthly flavour of the potato. One can find herbs in the sauce, and the herbs gave the sauce an aromatic fragrance. To be fair, there was just the right amount of sauce in this dish, and that helped to enhance the flavour of the mashed potato. If there had been too much sauce, the dish would have been too salty. My main complaint for this mashed potato was that the size of the serving is too big for one person.

Too big? May be it would be better to be shared among two persons.

I have not tried the dishes at Billy Bombers. I can start with its mashed potato. S$4.20 leh, too big? It's costly. :)

Doreen: Yes, it's better to share among two persons.

Eastcoastlife: Yeah, it is rather costly to pay $4.20 (including GST) for mashed potato, but the serving is good enough for two small eaters, so the costs can be shared. Anyway, I would pay for it even if it is $4.20 so as to see if it is worthy to be one of the best mashed potato in Singapore. My hunt continues.
