I implied to bebe good two months ago of the restaurants on my list, e-mailed him a list to choose from for my birthday lunch.
So, no nasty surprises nor disappointment. Yes, quite a control freak I am.
I am not into booze and so I don’t get it why cocktail costs so much in general.
Anyhow, being a birthday event, we had to order one cocktail each to toast.
This Mojito was downright crisp and bold.
I had a fruity & frothy cocktail mix. Boy, it was anything else but subtle.
Loved the smoky taste and the crispy outer charcoal layer.
The potato leek soup poured out from the tube was really delicious, cold version of course.
Presentation was so catchy.
S$55++ for a 3-course set lunch.
According to the waiter, chef will vary the gnocchi construction randomly, previously was mushroom, today is carrot.
Mind you, these gnocchi were made of a mixture of flour and etc to resemble carrots, they tasted so fresh, crunchy and full on carrot-y.
The tuna was actually from Australia, then to Japan and finally Singapore.
The whole combination with wakameme, bursting petits berries and pretty red dollops was an unfamilliar territory to my palette yet very inviting.
Ryan Cliff (chef) presented this dish with such poignancy while explaning the ingredients and method of cooking going into the dish.
Melting tender beef and starchy sago to match (you’re not missing potato puree here at all), spectacular!
These fillets were cooked to downright rustic and delicious flavours, no funky stuff going on here.
Two white truffles!
Nah…they resembled white truffles alright which are actually made of goat cheese dusted with fine powders made of … (no idea) , no gamey taste, but utter nuttiness. Great textures.
The seasoned honey lava served aside when drizzled onto a morsel of ‘white truffle’ and the toasty garlic breads, sweet & savoury ending it was.
Who would have thought of such wonderful combination?
We witnessed the liquid nitrogen poured out making this crunchy, nutty and chocolatey ‘hill’.
Pistachio-checked, chocolate-checked, green tea-checked…
All my favourite ingredients put onto a plate, served with a crunch!
It is very rare for fine dining to be featured on this blog, even more on molecular gastronomy.
So, hope you have enjoyed the pictures as much as I did.
This being a birthday lunch treat, it was a fantastic, refreshing and tasteful experience.
Being in Dempsey Hill, hop over to Jones the Grocer for coffee, perhaps other shops too for part deux of desserts.
