MUSEO (SG)

The window panel.

MUSEO (pronounce this word in French and that would be the sound).

She is the sister restaurant of Arteastiq  (visited twice) that also houses an art jamming room the same.

The serenity of Quayside Isle.

We took a cab from Tiong Bahru all the way out there, I enjoyed the way out here.

It felt like a vacation spot away from Singapore as we neared this relatively quiet spot of Sentosa.

The restaurant is accessed via the lift, located on second level of the building.
The art jamming room, placed in the centre of the restaurant on a raised platform, barricaded away.

We arrived here for their weekend buffet tea time, starts from 1.3opm – 5pm.

S$48++ per person.

The savoury station, which will greet you upon the entrance.
The dessert station, placed at the other side of the room near the window panels.
We started off with seafood chowder, soft fluffy bread slices, cold cappellini and prawn salad served in small glass bowls.

The soup was nay! Too starchy and tasteless.

However, the bread slices of two to three types were surprisingly soft within though a little cold, and came with good flavours.

Weekend buffet tea time S$48++ per person.
Also tried the tuna tataki (the only raw seafood available that day), capresse and seafood salad. Overall, cold seafood dishes fared alright.

I was hoping to see salmon sashimi but none available on the Saturday.

There was the tuna tataki in place for that.

It was alright in terms of freshness, good to find the fragrant sesame crust on the raw tuna pieces.

This cold truffle cappellini was quite delicious, also the cold poached prawns with thousand island dressing were sweet.

Their cold seafood selection was unassumingly good overall.

It was lip smacking fantastic but the flavours of the dressing and aromatics presented throughout.

Textures of the seafood was done right, not rubbery nor hard.

Sausages of different kinds, and roast beef slices were decent.
I especially like this cajun spiced grilled chicken fillets, fragrant and smoky, the meat itself was tender-ish.
Some of the petit cakes.

Dessert station was underwhelming.

Green tea and Opera petit cakes stood out, tender sponges as well as adequate amount of sweetness and scent.

The mini cream puffs were addictive.

The buffet comes with a drink of your choice – I opted for the Lemongrass Ginger brew.

Of course, their signature hot drinks would be the tea range.

No fault to find with this serving of lemongrass tea which came with the stalk itself for added fragrance and decor.

He had the chocolate coffee.

He liked this cup of rich coffee and chocolate with a good layer of chocolatey foam.

I must commend that on the quality of their hot chocolate and coffee range – improved vastly since their Arteastiq branch launched 3 years ago.

Overall, the experience was alright, service was flaky during the Saturday busy and crowded indoor.

I recommend a weekday visit for a more relaxed ambiance.
