As you step into Hotel Re!, a modern retro themed boutique hotel, you are lost in swirls of vivacious colours and psychedelic furnishings tempered with a sleek modern touch. With numerous themed boutique hotels in the metropolis, this 12-storey, 140-room boutique hotel is a wondrous surprise waiting to be discovered.
So here I was with my mum, for my festive set meal at Hotel Re!'s dedicated restaurant; Re!Fill. Accompanied by the placid environment of the serene city park, guests are given the privilege to savour their meals without rushing through them.
The meal started off with an appetizer- Portobello Mushroom in Oilive, Marinated Scallop, U.S White Asparagus and Black Truffle Vinaigrette. Very beautifully laid out, the appetizer was as appetizing as it looked!
Next, we had the soup- Chicken of Essence with Spinach Revioli Enhanced. Personally, I felt that the soup induced a very 'homely' feeling as it was simple yet tasty. It tasted very much like the soup from your home-made macaroni. There was a simple slice of toast with salted butter to compliment the soup served.
Following that, we had the main course. I had: grilled beef tenderloin with foie gras sauce, sauce potato gratin and a medley of vegetables. My mum had: roasted chestnut stuffing, honey baked ham, potato gratin, zuchinni and raspberry walnut dressing. We shared our mains to get a taste of both dishes. After discussion, we both felt that both mains were just as fabulous! My beef tenderloin was well done, not too tough to chew on and the meat juices blended very well with the foie gras sauce. The turkey was finely sliced and the mix of ham slices gave the whole dish a slightly salted taste.
Penultimately, our much anticipated desserts arrived! Hotel Re!'s 'Temptation Delights' they call it. Indeed, the desserts looked very tempting from afar as we glanced across the room waiting for the waitress to serve the very colorful platter. Temptation Delights consists of: a scoop of chocolate ice-cream, toppled with strawberry, a mini mango cake, a cocktail jelly as well as a 'kebab' of fruits. The variety of desserts were delicate and sweet as they should taste.
Finally, we had our beverages (coffee/tea) to end off the meal.
This festive set meal is priced at $23.80++. I would say its worth a try, but if you're looking for something more filling, opt for their buffet instead! Have a splendid Christmas everyone!!
Keep it up!
