family celebrating a special occasion, so daughter arranged a 7pax dinner at tess bar & kitchen on 24.7.2015.^^
it was a quite wonderful dinner. ambience was very happening with drinking crowd & food was good.
i was here earlier in march. the food was pretty ok.
we ordered a dozen fresh oysters, S$3ea. they were big, plump & sweet, no metallic aftertaste.
daughters liked the truffles fries. there were yam, sweet potatoes & potatoes. i didn’t taste any truffle, didn’t think much of it.
wife ordered a cocktail to share. cocktailit came with pink grapefruit, grapes & raspberries etc. so you “mixed” your own, kind of anyway. i not into liquor but it was a drinkable cocktail for me.
wife ordered a bespoke cocktail for herself. it was very nice!^^ we also had an order of beer & another cocktail.
i loved the duck rillette! the best i had was at the clifford. this one here was of no comparison with the favourful duck rilette at the clifford.
the smoked duck breast was nice too, with the lentils. i don’t take foie gras these days if i can help it.
the camembert cheese was good too! & the caramelised apples.
the crispy skin salmon was better than i expected, quite nice with the passion fruit sauce & mesclun.
the funghi risotto was excellent!^^ this definitely much better than my own funghi risotto.
the prawn linguine tomato sauce was good too. it was nothing special though, just a very competent one. the gamberini linguine at kith looked really good & i must try it sometime.
vongole was very good. very tasty!^^
1 of the best vongole i had. & it was quite different from the vongole i had for lunch sometime ago. that seemed from the photos to be a lot drier & if you don’t taste the sauce at the bottom it was not so great. this new version was much better.
the wagyu beef with bone marrow was superb!^^ wagyu beef was tender & the bone marrow was fantastic! it was quite perfect to have the bread to mop up the bone marrow.
dinner was S$393 nett inclusive of the drinks for 7pax. less drinks it would be like S$280 so about S$40pax nett. pretty ok!
