My friend actually introduced me The Black Swan after she went there and bunch of us went there to chill out on a Saturday night. To get there, if you are taking the MRT, you just have to exit via the path to Lao Pa Sat and that gets you to Cecil Street. The restaurant is located on the left and entrance is pretty iconic enough that you will hardly miss it. Although Cecil Street is quiet on a Saturday night as it is a central business district but once you step into the restaurant, you will fee
I was there for drinks and light bites so a group of us only ordered Truffle Cut Fries ($9) and Wild Mushroom, Homemade Bacon Jam Mozzarella Crostini ($9) for sharing. I was really disappointed that the Baked Bone Marrow with Chili & Kombu was not available for that night and I would love to try that though but this gave me another chance to go back there again. Truffle Cut Fries ($9) – The fries had a strong truffle aroma, it was crispy and tasted well even with the mayonnaise and tomato sauce that came with it. Wild Mushroom, Homemade Bacon Jam Mozzarella Crostini ($9) – The ingredients actually blended well, the mushroom was fresh and the Mozzarella cheese was chewy. Do eat this while it is still warm once it is served. As for drinks I ordered the Silver Lining Cocktail ($19) which according to the waitress was one of the sweeter cocktails in the menu. It comprises of a velvety mixture of Amaretto (an alcoholic base made of almonds) together with peaches and egg white and was prettified by a twig of rosemary.
The service of this restaurant was perfect. The waiters and waitresses were very warm and attentive, constantly checking and looking if the tables needed anything. So far, this is one restaurant that I can attest to providing such observant service. They were also constantly topping up water which was a plus.
The restaurant indeed has its own charm and character that which is distinctive to other places. I really recommend this place to go so check it out for yourself and let this place wow you. Although the price may be more on the upscale end but I can assure you it is really worth a visit if you want to try out something different.
