This is a very vibrant place and spacious enough for events and corporate parties. Besides, location is prime too.
Some wise quotes to ponder about during dinner.
Refreshing drinks to kick start our meal!
Mushroom Soup. The freshly blended mix of mushroom had a rich, earthy flavor and we enjoyed the clumpy consistency of the soup as we could chew on the bits of mushroom.
Comes with a piece of crispy toast.
63 degrees egg with caviar and mashed potatoes. This was complimentary from the Chef and off the menu for us. Experimenting with eggs is one of the Chef's specialty and we were very delighted when this was served. Texture of the egg was thick, yet smooth and velvety. Presentation was awesome and we felt like we were dining at a fine dining restaurant.
Slow cooked Salmon served with risotto and seasonal vegetables. Texture of salmon was firm, yet tender and smooth at the same time. I always feel very healthy having salmon on the dinner table and this was such a guilt free dish for me.
Duck Leg Confit served with mashed potatoes, mesclun mixed natural jus. The portion was huge and generous! The meat was moist and fall-off-the-bone tender! A large part of our enjoyment was derived from savoring the crispy skin with a layer of fat underneath. Sinful but worth every calorie.
Ended the meal with Warm Sticky Date Pudding with Vanilla ice-cream. Super good that i finished every bit of this despite being very full. It's not cloyingly sweet, and soft and moist. Warmed to the right temperature and when it goes with the vanilla ice cream.
