The restaurant is located at one end of a row of shophouses. The interesting thing about this restaurant is that all dishes are cooked using Josper Wood Charocal Oven and lychee wood. The restaurant serves modern European-style cuisines with an Asian touch. The walls of the restaurant is covered with colorful murals which looks great. The only thing that annoys is the loud surrounding music.Grilled Fresh Fruit Juice ($5)There is 2 choices of fruit for the juice today : pineapple or orange. I hav
There is 2 choices of fruit for the juice today : pineapple or orange. I have selected pineapple for the drink. Unlike the usual sweet bright yellow fruit juice, the drink is a dirty green in color, with smoky, and savoury taste. Very interesting. Honey Lemonade ($5)
It is a soda drink with hint of lemon flavour at the bottom. So remember to stir before drink.
Tonight we are having the 3-course dinner which is available during the restaurant week and costs $35++ per person.
For the small plates, we are having : Grilled Salmon Tartare
with Mixed Herbs, IKan Bilis, Spring Onion
It is different from the usual version, serving with pieces of crispy pita bread. Quite creamy and rich. Sauteed Shimeji Mushrooms
with Truffle Oil, Salted Egg Becurre Blanc
The dish smells great and yummy with the creamy sauce, but I could not taste the salted egg in it.
This is followed by the mains : Altantic Cod 160g
with Garlic, Water Spinach Fondue, Salted Fish, Asian Herbs Sauce
The fish is well cooked and tasted meaty and chucky. It goes quite well with the spicy Kang Kong. Pork Ribs 350g
with Barbecue Glaze, Roasted Baby Potatoes, House Salad, Sweet Hot Sauce
Although the rib looks dry with barely any sauce on it, the meat is very tender and flavourful with asian flavour on it. The meat tears easily off the bones. The sweet hot sauce kind of reminds one of a certain asian sauce. The greens is dressed in a light tangy dressing.
Lastly for desserts, we have Chocolate Gateau & Mint Ice Cream
with Devon Cream, Strawberry Pate, Coconut Flakes
I am disappointed with the version of chocolate gateau served here which looks more like a flat piece of chocolate cake with little chocolate taste in it. The stawberry pate has a quite interesting firm jelly texture. The devon cream is quite rich although it seems a bit overwhelming in taste. Grilled Pineapple & Ginger Ice Cream
with Rum, Gula Melaka, Cinnamon
This dessert fares better than the former. The ginger ice cream is the star here with bites of ginger in it without being overwhelming, giving cruch to texture and hints of heat. The pineapple is sliced into paper thin ribbons, although would prefer them in smaller pieces, as it is quite hard to eat with the tea spoons given, as well as, difficult to cut them into smaller pieces.
Overall the food is great. Water is refilled regularly. We are given small plates as both of us are sharing. Before the mains are served, the staff also clears the small plates, as she makes clear to us that there will not be enough space for the small plates. But interestingly when the mains are served by another staff, we are given small plates. Lastly when desserts are served, we are not given small plates again. Service seems uneven to me.
