there is a ongoing UOB credit card 1-for-1 promotion at mitzo.i came here for a lohei dinner in mar2015. it was an ok, in fact better than expected, experience.
as mentioned then, mitzo is also apparently positioned as an inventive cocktail bar, serving some cocktails from a teapot.
so we decided to try out the S$108pax (S$54pax after 50% discounts) 8-course signature set menu on 5.9.2015.
we were in luck this evening. F1 is round the corner & they were rolling out some new F1 cocktail, and for this evening, we stumbled onto a free F1 complimentary cocktail promotion. it tasted pretty good actually, not too sweet. i think it was rum & some citrus & other concoction.
the dimsum trio was fine food. taste was pretty good, if not awesome.
radish puff was a very good pastry, and tasty. the breaded prawn roll was a little heavy, & average. the crispy glutinous pumpkin in custard was good.
the mitzo special char siew was good, but a tad too salty. it is not the standard of the chargrilled pork neck 炭烧猪项肉 at imperial treasure nanbei we had recently.
the lobster bisque with poached scallop was a bit of a fusion oddity. it looked gluey like a chinese sweet sour soup. but the taste was superb! & with so much cut scallops & lobster pieces! this was the best dish this evening. ^^
the deep-fried prawns with creamy lemon sauce was good, very competent. a good crisp outside, tender & tasty inside. its a regular dish like any wasabi prawns or salted egg prawns with a different dressing, ok but not awesome.
the oven baked chilean seabass with lemon grass was good standard. not among the better chilean seabass i had, including oonboard SIA!
the pan-fried lamb chop with enoki mushrooms was very tender, except it tasted by geyland lor 9 horfun kind of chinese very tenderised kind of tender. so i was just ok with the dish not not really my thing.
the other very tasty best dish of the evening was the braised thick beehoon soup, with prawns, scallops & cod. i really enjoyed this. finish all the carbs. shiok!!
the dessert was not really my type. avocado cream with ice cream…i took just a little. i always like sesame dumpling. still this time i did not finish it. well, this not a set i would want to take too often. if the consideration were just money vs ingredients, this was certainly a very good deal!
