Cheese Bread

Served complimentary to diners, it was so so so so so good, it was also served warm, its more like a choir pastry than a bread but who cares? This is so good we asked for seconds.

Scallop Carpaccio and Tuna S$26

Hokkaido scallop carpaccio and lightly-seared tuna with capers, olive, coriander, preserved lemon and fresh vegetable ribbon.

Love the scallops carpaccio, sweet and fresh!

Trio of Tomatoes S$18

Cherry tomatoes confit, semi-dried tomato, fresh yellow cherry tomato with bocconcini and pesto.

The little white balls you see here are cheese and its chewy and doesn't taste too cheesy.

Seafood Bouillabaisse S$28

Red malabar snapper, whole langoustine, blue mussel in bouillabaisse broth for a princess like me :P

The bright tangy broth looks very appealing, brimming with seafood goodness but the snapper has got bones and scales, still no complains.

Porcini & Bacon Risotto S$32

Comes with aged parmesan cheese. I thought it will come smelly as I cannot take too distinctive cheese taste but thank god this dish is perfect! 1 of the better risotto I had!

Miso Black Cod S$42

with leek fondue, seaweed butter, sesame tulle and bonito flakes.

Awesome cod dish I would say, the miso goes pretty well with the black cod.

Japanese Yellow Sea Bream S$78

This is specially flown in fro Japan. We can taste the intense flavour and freshwater sweetness in this dish. A pity the bones turns me off, as I have this fear of choking to death on a fish bone, but its pretty good, comes with lemon, garlic confit and scallion.

Honey Glazed Kurobuta Pork S$56

with mesclun salad, white wine apple and apple butter sauce.

At first look, we thought its was a huge chunck of pineapple on our kurobuta pork.

The apple sauce goes well with the kurobuta pork, but its a the pricey side.

A Dessert Platter S$32

A combination of 4 desserts by the Chef, beautifully plated, i could have more of these.

Peanut Butter Jelly S$18

Toasted broiche, cranberry jelly, chocolate ganache and caramelised banana.

The brioche is a little too hard for our liking, the rest works out fine :)

Eton Mess S$18

Strawberries, hazelnut crunch, meringue, salted caramel, devon cream, all in a cup, not a mess at all.

Sticky Date Pudding S$18

served with vanilla brandy sauce, vanilla ice cream and walnut crumble.

Enhanced Bergamot Earl Grey Jelly S$15

served with frozen yogurt, passionfruit coulis, macerated berries.

Love this the most due to the combination of earl grey jellies with frozen yogurt, its a refreshing glass of dessert to perk us up after a filling meal.

Thank you The Royal Mail for having us!
