A session at Violet Herbs for food tasting was definitely a highlight for that week! Overall, the flavours tried and tasted were new (atleast to my buds, my taste buds) and they stuck true to Herbs as per their name.Key takeaways:1) Good food comes with a price, but doesn't have to be overpriced.2) Passion always shows in your work - like this experienced couple delivering such interesting concoctions infused with herbs.3) Eggs poached for 1-hour are just WOW - lovely in colour, taste and richne
1) Good food comes with a price, but doesn't have to be overpriced.
2) Passion always shows in your work - like this experienced couple delivering such interesting concoctions infused with herbs.
3) Eggs poached for 1-hour are just WOW - lovely in colour, taste and richness. Located "diagonally" opposite Orchid Hotel and along along Tras Street (first after the grass patch) – so it’s easy to get to from Tanjong Pagar MRT Stations. This French feat Modern European (a course meal diner with ala carte options) was opened in Dec 2014 by local couple, Dani and Chef Edward (previously at The American Club Singapore, Fish Market & Bistro and Restaurant Ember) with more than 22 years of combined experience in F&B, Singapore.
Because it was a tasting session, we were treated to 6 dishes of sample size and a surprise Amuse Bouche of Beef to start the ball rolling. The name itself amused me - my great inexperience showing as I drew blank and had to ask what was that?! The Amuse Bouche, according to Wikipedia, is a single, bite-sized hors d'œuvre and different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but, when served, are done so free and according to the chef's selection alone.
So, thank you Chef for serving up this aromatic dish. The beef was tender, easy on the palate and served with Madeira sauce and fried saffron strips. It was served with Saffron Bread which smelt so good and chewy in its thickness. First time trying a full-on Saffron Bread and it was delish!
I enjoyed savouring the Truffle Foie Gras amongst the 3 mains. Accompanied with poached egg, poached for 1 hour egg which gave the yolk a strong, thick yellow/orange tint and the white was silky smooth. At the slice of the yolk, it blended well into the cepes reduction and summer black truffles. Summer Black Truffles which costs a pretty dime from what we heard! Check out that egg yolk below.
