I went during the restaurant week to Ochre Italian situated at Orchard Central. It was my first time there still. Located at the high floor next to the garden roof top in Orchard Central, this place seems like it is good for a romantic meal owning to the ambience. It will definitely be more romantic at night. It wasn’t very crowded during lunch when I went and in fact there were only us and another table but it was pretty nice and quiet to enjoy the meal with not many people around. The restaura
The first dish was the Zuppa, the oven-roasted tomato soup with herb oil. The soup was smooth and very tomato based. It has a rich tomato flavour and tasted really zesty. I enjoyed the soup and the herb oil sprinkled together with the cream added on top of it makes it even more flavoursome. It was served with warm bread which was made fresh and very delicious. I enjoyed it over the vinaigrette and olive oil. - Warm Bread - Tomato soup with herb oil
The next dish was the main, the secondi which I have picked the Sea bass fillet for my main. The Sea bass was fresh and it came with braised mushroom together with leek and saffron scented and seafood stock. Anyway fresh fish tells it all, cannot go wrong with it. The sauce was mouth-watering with a sweet leek taste. It has a strong smell of saffron and if you know saffron, it is a fragrant flower use in most cooking. - Sea Bass Fillet
Finally, the Dolci and the dessert was a Lemon cheesecake with chocolate crumble. This dish came in an interesting dessert art which makes the cheesecake looks like it is one of the planets in space with the berries surrounding it. The lemon cheesecake was heavy with a taste of zest and the crumble was coarse which goes well with the cake. The desert was totally delightful. Best of all, we could end off by selecting a cup of coffee or tea that came with the set which really just complemented the cake. - Lemon cheesecake with chocolate crumble
The set for restaurant week lunch at Ochre Italian only cost about $26 with everything inclusive. It was a total deal. And anyway this gives us an opportunity to just try out the food there and will definitely return to try out their other items in the menu there. As for service, the waitress was quite attentive and courteous to us and in addition the ambience also gave them a plus. Needless to say, my friends also cannot stop complementing the place and the food. We totally enjoyed it.
