MUSEO (pronounce this word in French and that would be the sound).
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.
We arrived here for their weekend buffet tea time, starts from 1.3opm – 5pm.
S$48++ per person.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
