Chef D' Table is located in Chijmes. Chef D' Table offers modern European cuisine with Asian flavors infused in them. Having heard much positive reviews of the place, we were excited to try it out.
Dinner at Chef D'table was $35++ for restaurant week. You can upgrade your appetizer to Lobster Bisque at additional cost of $6++ as well as your main course for Angus beef rib-eye at additional $12++.
We ordered a Wasabi and soy marinated salmon. The salmon was marinated as we could taste the soy-sauce-like touch to the salmon. It was really nothing special. The whole dish lacked uniqueness and I was just quite disappointed.
For main courses, first up - the beef loin fillet. It was served with mash potato, topped with some crispy sweet potato slices and some asparagus. The sauce is thyme-scented red wine sauce. My friend like the beef as it was cooked quite well and not too tough. The red wine sauce went well with it. It's just that like any French food, the portion is small. I think this is probably the best main course amongst the 3 we tried.
The chocolate trio mousse cake has three layers of which the first is dark chocolate, then milk chocolate and finally white chocolate. Taste wise, nothing special about the cake. Being a dessert lover, I guess I was expecting more surprises and uniqueness. Sadly, it just wasn't there yet for me.
Overall, the food was mediocre. I guess I was expecting much more since there were many positive reviews online as well. Guess I would not be returning to Chef D' Table anytime soon.
