The place was packed for lunch during Saturday. I decided on the omakase lunch which was consisted of 7 courses (S$97++). My only request was the dessert not to be the restaurant's signature Wild Rocket Chendol which I just had a couple of weeks ago. Ice water was served after placing order.
Course 1 : Bah Chor Mee
Negitoro (minced fatty tuna) topped with chopped spring onion and chilli padi, crispy lards, fried shallots, on top of a bed of warm glass noodles.
Course 2 : Thai Pomelo Salad
Served with tiger prawns & frozen coconut dressing
The dressing was like a scoop of ice cream and made of coconut, chilli, fish oil, and shallot. It tasted quite lemak. Having it with mint leaf, pomelo, and cilantro, it tasted quite refreshing with hint of spicy and sweetness of fruit.
Course 3 : Chilli Crab
Crab cake made of blue crab and spanner crab, served with chilli crab sauce.
The crab cake was packed with nothing but crab meat. Quite juicy and yummy on its own.
Course 4 : Hokkien Mee
Fresh pasta cooked with prawn stock, and hae ko (black shrimp paste). It was quite flavourful but a bit too salty for me.
Course 5 : Wild Rocket Strawberry Cheesecake
It served deconstructed style in a Martini glass. Creamy without too sweet or sour.
I was surprised that I was served dessert before my main. I later asked the staff who thought I already had it. In the end I went through what I had with 2 different staffs and decided that there was 2 more courses.
Course 6 : Black vinegar iberico pork jowl with pickled cabbage and chestnut puree
The meat was quite tender and pulled out easily. Quite appetizing with the pickled vegetables.
Course 7 : Lychee sorbet with lychee martini gummy
The sorbet was topped with ginger flower and blue pea flower. Interesting flavours of the light lychee and the slightly stronger ginger flower. Quite refreshing.
Overall the food was not bad but was a tab upset about my course of dishes being overlooked. By the way as the place was full house, it was quite noisy too.
