The Sweetest Ending The dessert course of the spectacularly value for money, $25.90++ per person New Years Day set menu was a brilliant chocolate layered cake. I’m hoping that 5 Senses are baking their own cakes, but I do know for a fact that this takes the cake. Granted, it looks unappealingly dry, but the sponge layers are adequately moist and have been thoroughly infused with the taste of sweet, slightly bitter chocolate. The mousse separating each sponge layer is light, yet deliciously chocolatey with a hint of bitterness to boot. The bottom layer has a texture like a crunchy cookie: brittle, crunchy when bitten down into, and crumbs like a cookie. The frosting is also quite delightful, and is sweeter than the mousse and sponge cake that it cocoons to add a little variety on the palate. It’s not the most revolutionary cake ever made, but you best believe I’ll have this cake and eat it too.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner The main course of 5 Senses Bistro’s New Year’s Day meal was a slab of peri peri chicken thigh, and while it wasn’t the most amazing thing ever, it was still deliciously delightful. The skin is charmingly crispy with just right with the right amount of charring around the edges. The skin is tantalizingly spicy and savory, and the peri peri marinade isn’t just skin deep, it penetrates all the way through the thigh fillet. The juicy meat is packed full of flavor, and is an utter joy to bite down into. The grilled corn cob on the side could do with a bit of butter, but it was fresh and sumptuously sweet. All things considered, it’s a fantastic entrée that’s more than earned its place on the ridiculously value for money $25.90++ 3 course set.

High 5 5 Senses’ New Year set menu lasted long after the New Year was but a hazy, alcoholic blur so that sluggards like me could get some. And boy was I glad I caught it before it was gone. The three course meal ($25.90++ per head) consisted of the above pictured bowl of seafood bouillabaisse, a main of peri peri chicken thigh, and a dessert of chocolate layer cake. And I gotta say, at $25.90++, it’s quite decent value. What I wasn’t expecting, however, was the unquestionable quality of the food. The seafood bouillabaisse wasn’t just loaded with fresh mussels, prawns and (unfortunately) slightly over cooked squid, the bouillabaisse itself was stunningly sublime. The tomato broth is rich, briny and utterly umami after hours of slowly simmering with the seafood. As if the seafood wasn’t enough, there were a couple of superbly sweet cherry tomatoes that burst apart to deliver their palatable payload without much provocation. To top it all off, there was an indecently irresistible wedge of pungently garlicky bread to mop up every last drop of that beautiful bouillabaisse.

Smoked Kurobuta Pork, Chicory, Persimmon and Juniper sauce Always loved how pork steaks are executed as well as beef steaks in places like this! I liked the smoky flavour of this dish, which came without the oily vibes of its Asia counterpart - the crackling roast pork (which btw, to clarify, is extremely good too). The persimmon purée at the bottom didn’t quite taste like persimmon - pretty light in taste and could pass off as a pumpkin purée? Good dish to have if you’re not having the awe-standing grass fed beef tenderloin!

Grass Fed Beef Tenderloin, Foie Gras, Kale & Truffle Jus Impressive executed beef at medium (minimum expectations for Michelin rated restaurant) and generous portions of foie gras atop each pinkish beef slice. Each ‘set’ comes with crispy kale which are so so so delicious even the non-veggie eating boyfriend finished them (& praised they were good too)! The dish was drizzled with truffle jus - I wished there were more, tho the portion was just nice and in fact, no jus was required since the beef, foie gras & kale were really flavoured on their own.

Great Deal With Burpple Beyond Found this place on Burpple for my dad's birthday, and the food and ambience certainly matched the occasion! The grass fed beef tenderloin and smoked kurobuta pork mains were so tender and flavourful, but we also liked that they had other options for the non-meat lovers. Service was also really attentive, and we really enjoyed the fresh bread and special appetisers they served us. So glad for Burpple Beyond which introduced us to the place and helping us save on the mains so we could afford to try more appetisers :)

[Main Dish] Impossible Burger ($23) I’ve been super excited to try Beyond Meat’s patties but couldn’t find them in Fairprice Finest when I went, so although I was drawn in by the signature TSB Burger, all thoughts of ordering that were thrown to the wind once the Impossible Burger caught my eye. The burger comprises a Beyond Meat patty with a slice of melted cheese, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, sandwiched between brioche pepper buns. It’s also served with some house-made chips. At first glance, the burger looks just like any regular beef burger. The likeness is uncanny. Tastewise, the patty is incredible. It’s moist, and the texture is virtually indistinguishable from a real meat patty when eaten as a whole burger. I’m not a huge beef burger fanatic so maybe I’m not such a great judge for meat texture, but I think it could fool most people. I absolutely loved this burger, and I’d order it over a regular beef patty in a heartbeat. The brioche pepper buns add a special bit of pepper kick, which was great. I wasn’t such a fan of the pickles in the burger, so I ended up taking them out. The chips were ok, not super special but they were crispy and not too oily which is pretty much all you can ask for in potato chips anyway.

Okay Fish The fish was a little too dry but wasn’t too bad. The accompanying salad was a good contrast to the taste of the fish
