Communal – Dinner

This is a relatively new restaurant at North Canal Road I decided to try it since I was looking to settle dinner around North Canal Road. On a Monday night, I managed to get a seat at 7pm without reservation. The restaurant was quite busy at the time we arrived, but by 8pm it was quite empty when the first batch of diners left.

They had 1-for-1 house pour wines for happy hour promotion so we got 2 glasses of red wine for $12.00++. The house pour wine was nothing spectacular, just in case you wanted to know.

Cornbread with Honey Butter

This was given complimentary but they do sell it on their menu too. From this small portion, I really liked it, but I’m not sure how’ll it be if the portion was bigger, since the honey butter can get a bit too sweet and oily if taken in larger quantities.

Mac and Cheese – $8.00++

We had this as a side and the portion was definitely quite substantial. For a side, you should share this, but I feel it can be eaten alone as a main too. I am not big on mac and cheese but it was definitely satisfactory and I like how the macaroni was rather al dente.

The C.B.D Communal Burger Deluxe – $25.00++

The CBD burger features double patty, melted gruyere cheese, bacons, fried egg, fries and lettuce and tomato. I added pan seared foie gras (30g) for $8.00++ additional. I felt that the foie gras was a steal, even though it wasn’t the best executed one.

Overall, the food here is pretty good, and reasonably priced. The above amount was shared by 2 and it left us feeling very full. As the name suggests, do share your food if you intend to order a variety.
