Here features my first and last Restaurant Week Singapore March-2012 attempt.
We came here for Sat lunch, S$35++ per head.
The bread served promptly upon seated, it was cold but they were soft and I especially love the fruity tasting olive oil served aside.
The presumably phyllo crisps, seasoned with spices served atop were crunchy and savoury.
Disappointment set in when I saw the very tasteless salad.
And my tongue confirmed what my eyes perceived.
This seafood course was the best among all the courses. Flavourful and tasty consomme, tender ravioli with cod fish flakes, fresh and fragrant baby octopus combined well.
The serving size and presentation seemed budgeted.
This dish was so so, didn’t like the non-crispy fish skin, thin fillet, the tomato sauce concoction wasn’t great in my opinion. The best thing was the aubergine puree.
I was shocked at the puny, uninspired portion of my partner’s chicken.
I expected the chicken served in the tagine, first of all. But…anyway, taste of the chicken was alright.
The tiny puny teaspoon of mango sorbet was great, soft crepe filled with the caramel banana chunks was good.
Simple and nice.
I didn’t get the timing that I wanted for Novus, Salt Grill, Clifford, Ku De Ta :(.
And since Gattopardo has always been on my hunt list, so, I was really glad to be able to dine here during Restaurant Week.
After this visit, I was somehow dismayed at the dishes, the tastes, the portions and the combination were short falled. The service crew was diligent though.
I might just be back to try their normal seafood menu, which is their forte apparently.
