With its widespread variety of food, ranging from Turkish, French, Italian to Moroccan, at wallet-friendly prices, Medzs has been drawing a steadily increasing crowd. After the opening of its first branch in Orchard Central last year, the food junction venture has expanded to a second location in millenia walk.

Duck Leg Confit

Duck Leg Confit

Duck Leg Confit ($16.90) – The skin of the duck confit was very crispy, while the duck meat beneath was tender, not overly chewy, with a thin soft layer of fats. The duck confit tended to be a little on the salty side. There was a tinge of mild spiciness, and coupled with the saltiness, reminded us of cured meat. The accompanying potatoes were a little on the bland side, they could do with a bit more marinating and roasting, to achieve a more flavourful and robust texture and flavour. The characteristic earthy taste of mushrooms wasn’t too overpowering, the taste was just adequate, making it a rather addictive side dish. On the whole, while we can’t say that the Duck Leg Confit was very impressive, it did meet the minimum standards and would definitely appeal to the general public.

Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate Mousse ($5) – Atop the chocolate mousse sat a few chocolate butter biscuits which were brittle and hard. There was more of a butter taste, compared to chocolate, nothing too fantastic. The mousse itself was pretty hard as well, almost akin to fudge. Strangely, in the middle of the mousse, we found traces of sponge. Taste wise, the chocolate did not stand out and the mousse seemed rather diluted. The quality of chocolate was mediocre as well. This is definitely not in our list of good chocolate mousses.

Oreo Cheesecake

Oreo Cheesecake

Oreo Cheesecake ($6.50) – Seems like Medzs doesn’t do a good job for desserts as we were once again let down by mediocrity. The cheesecake was too crumbly, not sticky and dense. The oreo was also too crumbly and powdery. The oreo taste was somehow pretty faint, but then again, the cheesecake wasn’t rich enough. The entire cake was just too subtle and mild.
