ochre is a very nice italian restaurant (with some japanese fusion cos the chef is japanese) with a to-die-for view. granted, it's not on the 70th floor like equinox, but at nearly the highest floor of Orchard Central, this is a great view for a price that is relatively kinder to your wallet.

we started off the meal with the antipasti misti ($20) which is an assorted plate of 6 appetizers. the mesclun salad was fresh and lightly seasoned and helped to refresh the palate before our meal. i loved the prosciutto and mango salad - the saltiness of the ham matched with the sweet mango evened out the taste nicely. the pan fried scallop was another worthy mention! it was so fresh and well-cooked, soft with just the right amount of bite. the other three appetizers we tried were the caprese, yellow fin tuna 'tataki' and smoked eel & horseradish cream.

the next dish we had was the saffron tagliolini ($28). i loved the thick gravy with the flavour of crystal bay prawn, mussel & crab meat tomato cream all blended into a smooth puree. it was delicious!

the pan seared beef tenderloin 'rossini' ($36) was the ultimately decadent dish. see that fat slab of caramelized foie gras?!
i think this is the first time i've ever tried it properly and it was superbly awesome. it simply melted and the flavour burst in my mouth. the beef was cooked beautifully too, medium-rare, just tender enough.

finally, we ended off the meal with the dolci misti ($20) which was a dessert platter with chocolate terrine, tiramisu, caramel mousse, passion fruit panna cotta, pistachio gelato. the tiramisu was AWESOMEEEE (: i am drooling just thinking about it
teehee. the passion fruit panna cotta and pistachio gelato were really refreshing! (:
