Since it was our first time at Absinthe, we wanted to try more items and opted for the set dinner, priced at $88 each pax. If you browse through the menu, it will be apparent that the set is more worthwhile as the ala carte items are rather expensive.

The place itself is really cozy, with a choice of the quieter indoor setting or the alfresco dining along Singapore River.

Saint Jacques

Hokkaido Scallops Carpaccio, Hazelnut, Fava Beans and Soy-Argan Oil Dressing

Next, we had the Hokkaido scallops. The scallops were sliced so thinly that I cant really taste the natural sweetness of a scallop. But I've to admit this was an interesting dish ~ the dressing itself overpowered the scallops, in a nice way of course. And the nuts & beans added on a crunchy touch. Very intriguing indeed.

1/2 Boston Lobster, Seaweed Butter and Angel Hairs with Ikura - $32 (Additional Order)

We ordered an extra entree for sharing and we loved this one! The lobster was so succulent and there was so much meat. The pasta was cooked with the right hardness, topped off with salmon roes. We almost squealed in delight. Definitely a must order for me in my next visit!

Bisque

Traditional Lobster Bisque

More lobster, anyone? ^_^

The soup was smooth and super flavourful. I though it was slightly too thick ('gao') for me. Nevertheless, we still polished the bowl clean.

Foie Gras Poêlé

Pan Fried Foie Gras, Morello Cherries and Blinis

I'm not a foie gras person but I thought this was quite okay. The foie gras came with a small slice of pancake & sweet berries sauce. Portion was neat although I can only manage half of it; hubby finished everything including my other half portion. Keke

Cabillaud

Roasted Black Cod, Prawn Risotto and Kaffir Lime Leaf Emulsion

By now, we were really full and it was good that the risotto came in spoonfuls portion. The risotto was lovely, creamy with bite size prawns. Cod fish, on the hand, was a tad saltish but still good.

Pore Iberique

Seared Iberico Pore "Presa" Pommery Mustard and Ragu of Brussels Sprouts

We were told that this was pork, but we thought it tasted like beef ~ sweet & tender. Yummy!

Pêche

Stewed Seasonal Peaches with Crumble and Peach Sorbet

Somewhat unusual dessert. The peach fruit was warm, but without the fruit sweetness, which was nicely complemented by the peach sorbet.

Overall, it was a lavish meal that we enjoyed very much with the ambiance, service and food. Definitely a place to consider for anniversaries, birthdays or when you feel rich and wanna pamper yourself with a good meal. (^.^)V
