The Tastings Room (SG)

the Christmassy interior, warm and fuzzy in the midst of afternoon rain

 Honestly, what brought me here was a online deal site offer.

So, it was SGD15.90 nett per person for the deal customised menu consisted of soup (starter),  main course and a hot beverage.

Upon reading their menu, I discovered that their brunch and snacks items are extensive and surely tempting.

Such as egg benedicts, egg florentine, white truffle salted fries and etc …

 Smoked Vine Tomato Soup with Seafood

The soup was truly satisfying on the cold rainy afternoon.

Prawns and dory fish were thrown in as well, the smokiness all around couldn’t agree more.

 Truffle Mushroom Puree Soup

I love how home made feel this soup was. A little gritty, not creamy, a few punches from truffle oil were nice.

Sous vide sirloin steak

Both of us went for steak from the two options, another one being Confit Chicken Leg which in retrospect I should have gone for.

I was surprised to see this main course was tagged at mere SGD13.90 ++ alone. Origin of beef – no idea.

Well, the portion was huge, 5 thick slabs of meat and a large spoonful of mashed potatoes.

This combination here was alright.

It was just lacking as we couldn’t gain any satisfaction from the smell and texture as a results of blanching as well as sous vide cooking.

I think we still prefer the good ol’ charred steak, charred or grilled vegetable sides and creamier mashed potato.

Oh yes, affordable wines are one of the features of this restaurant.

I suppose, I would be interested to try out their brunch at some stage.
