Mushroom soup was tasty with some kind of foam in the middle. Stir is well and have a go at it. It is definitely not those can mushroom soup. YUMS!Swear by their squid ink pasta. Though you will end up looking messy (dish not recommended for first dates), it is really tasty!Desserts on the other hand was a letdown. Maybe it's just me. Not a fan of cream brulee. continue reading

The place itself was not spacious, in fact, you probably can hear the conversation of the table next to you. "Luckily" for us, we reached there early at 630pm, so that didn't pose any problem for us and we "enjoyed" the privacy as well as the prompt attention from the staff. French Foie Gras de Carnard Cru ($19.90)Pan seared foie gras with orange cranberry chutney, port wine jelly and ginger scented toastSound complicated with the different tastes (orange, cranberry, port wine, ginger) supposing in the dish huh? Trust me, it wasnt that complicated coz I cant really taste any or was it my insensitive palate? Hmm, I dun think the cause is the latter lah.Anyway, the foie gras was just okay and I thought the toast was a tad too thin and crispy to properly paired with the foie gras. Pan Seared Diver Scallop ($18.90)Seared scallop on garden leafy green and finished with salmon roe and chive beurre blancIn comparison, we adored the scallops better, which were succulent with the right texture! It would have been if they were bigger, but I guess they were good enough. Hey, no complaints since we were paying almost half price. And the creamy sauce with salmon roe complement the scallops very well. "Sous Vide" Pork Belly with Crackling Skin ($26.90)"Sous Vide" pork belly planted on mash potato with summer vegetables, Tavel Rose wine apple sauce and finished with crackling pork skinThere used to be no such word as "Sous Vide" in my dictionary. And since I started visiting Italian restaurant, it seemed to be "found" everywhere! KekeIf you are wondering what it means, there you go (quoted from Wikipedia)..."French for "under vacuum", is a method of cooking food sealed in airtight plastic bags in a water bath for a long time—72 hours is not unusual—at an accurately determined temperature much lower than normally used for cooking, typically around 60 °C or 140 °F. The intention is to cook the item evenly, not overcook the outside while still keeping the inside at the same 'doneness' and to keep the food juicier."There was only 4 pathetic slices of pork belly, which at first I though not filling lah! But dun worry, I was served with huge lump of yummy potato mash too. =pPork belly was okay but I though the crackling skin was a bit too dry. And I couldn't find the "Taval Rose wine apple sauce" anywhere in the plate. I swear I overturn every single item on the plate but still cannot find leh. A mystery indeed. Warm Banana Cake with Lemongrass Ginger Ice Cream ($8.9)Served with caramelized banana, nuts & mixed berriesI was excited to try this unique ice cream made of spices instead of the normal fruits and chocolate ingredients. Fortunately, it didnt fail me and I quite like the refreshing taste. Then again, I guess not everyone can accept this. On the other hand, the banana cake was warm and sweet. So together, the ice cream will neutralize the sweetness and turned out to be a perfect match! Thumbs up!Disclaimer first if you are gonna try this, coz it was not stated in the menu that the banana cake will be served with the lemongrass ginger ice-cream on normal days. So please do re-confirm with the staff!To read more and view photos, please visit http://fun-hideout.blogspot.sg/2011/10/tasting-room.html continue reading

for photos and more reviews, visit http://thelittlemomentsofmylife.blogspot.com/ i need a disclaimer first: before you order your food, ask the waitress what dishes are available for that day!!! cos when i went there, we suffered numerous disappointments when several (in fact it was quite a few) dishes which we ordered turned out to be unavailable. seriously, it came to the point where it got rather annoying! i mean, why on earth is it on the menu, but not in the kitchen?!we kicked off the meal with roasted pumpkin soup ($6.90) which was a gorgeous smooth puree of oven roasted pumpkin with grilled prawn, pieces of cheese toast and rosemary foam. the prawns were fresh and juicy and complemented the soup perfectly, while the rosemary foam added an unconventional touch to this dish with its fluffy texture. the soup itself was very tasty, and the generous amount of pumpkin used was evident.i ordered the truffle wild mushrooms spaghetti ($18.90) excitedly, not realising that it was a creamy pasta! >.< yikes. it was really wonderful, but i still can't get over the richness of creamy pasta. i went through slightly more than half the plate before i conceded defeat. still, it was delicious as the luscious infusion of truffle sauce gave the dish a rich earthy flavour, and this was perfectly matched by the mushrooms that came with it.i really enjoyed my sister's tomato seafood pasta ($18.90). rather surprising since it was a seafood dish, but i guess it was mainly just squid that's why i was fine with it. i found the tomato-based sauce exceptionally tasty though! i loved the freshness of the sundried tomato pesto with tomato chunks - an attempt, at the very least, of homemade sauce.the confit of duck leg ($22.90) was crisp on the outside, yet well done such that the meat inside still retained the juices. it was served with a smooth potato mash, grilled pear and tangy orange sauce which added a refreshing touch to this fried dish.my mum had the beef ribeye steak ($23.90) which was nicely done and came with mushroom ragout, gruyere cheese, delicious white truffle fries and a port wine sauce which balanced out the taste of the meat wonderfully. the mesclun salad that came with it gave a breath of freshness to the meaty dish.finally, we had the Bolognese meatball pizza ($13.90) which had to be one of my favourite dishes there! the pizza was crisp and generously covered with ingredients (such that it could hardly hold its own weight). as its name says, it cane with juicy meatballs in a lovely Bolognese sauce, topped with mozarella cheese and rocket salad finished with EVOO . continue reading

Tastings room is a restaurant with very nice ambience, a suitable place to dine in with your partner. As usual, i ordered duck confit as my main dish. Seems like I am on a mission to find the best duck confit in singapore haha. Anyway, the duck meat is tender and the tanned skin taste really good. the mash potato is soft and fluffy. thumb up to this dish! Had tiramisu as our dessert which is pretty average, nothing fantastic about it.Overall, i will be back to this place in future. continue reading

Bought a deal from Groupon to try The Tasting Room. The stars of the meal would be the main courses. Choose between the Confit of Duck Leg, and the Miso Glazed Norwegian Makerel. Round off your meal with dessert with a choice between Coconut Panna Cotta (which is a cheese cake).$28 for 4-Course French Degustation Menu at The Tastings Room in Marina Square (Worth $56). Overall the food is not bad but portion is smaller than usual.Coconut Panna Cotta and Gateau au FromageThe cheesecake, soft and light! Confit of duck leg Tender duck with absolutely nice sauce. However, the portion is unable to satisfy my stomach. Miso Glazed Norwegian Mackerel.The fish, i don't really it as i find it unfresh! But the marination was well done. continue reading
