My second time at Publico and this time I was seated inside. They messed up our reservation and had to wait close to 30 min before we were seated.

Pasta weren’t great- the only one worth getting IMO was the beef lasagna which honestly is also quite expensive. But compared to the Linguine Vongole ($28) which was bland and tiny, this was way better. Pizzas are a safer choice.

We got the Deep Fried Mars Bars and Oreos ($16) for dessert and it was doughy. Very much preferred the ones from Chippy’s instead.

Music was also overwhelmingly loud. We found ourselves having to shout to each other which wasn’t pleasant at all.

Other than the ambience which was beautiful, I doubt I will return again considering it’s already my second time.

THIS IS AMAZING. The combination of the savoury bulgogi and sweet sauce was chef’s kiss. The crust of the pizza was just right, crisp but not hard.

Super flavourful! Highly recommend! It’s slightly pricey at $30, but defo can share cause it’s quite big

Pictured here is the Hangover Beef Burger at $32. The burger was huge and the patty was generously thick! It came with onion rings, truffle fries and salad. Definitely filling for 1 adult eater and possibly feed 2 small eaters. The restaurant feels like upscale casual that overlooks the hotel’s swimming pool but could engage more service staff as it was difficult to get their attention due to blind spot.

Was introduced to this place by a foodie friend, and three of us had the lunch set (price starting at $20; to add extra for certain sides and drinks, and also dessert!)

The laksa crab linguine and the sambal crab fried rice were recommended by the waiter, and with good reason. The laksa was thick and substantial; the linguine texture was pretty good too, although it was a bit hard to taste the crab in the dish. The sambal crab fried rice was pretty special too! Very well-recommended as we could get two sides + 1 drink per lunch set - worth it!

We also had the famous truffle duck popiah; it was a large portion but very, very good. I’ve visited this place again recently with another friend, and will be back next time :)

(To note: Only the a la carte mains, not the a la carte specialities, apply for the 1-for-1 main course deal on the Entertainer. If the specialities were applicable, we would have gone for the lobster laksa linguine instead!)

The Saayadiya was a medley of textures and flavours - creamy, rich, juicy, crispy... Interesting that it came with fried onions but the risotto didn't quite blow as away. I learned thereafter that it was made using basmatic rice that resulted in a little less creamy and starchy texture. The sea bass, on the other hand, was perfectly pan-fried to give it a nice crisp while retaining its moisture.

The hummus was nutty with a mousse-like smooth and creamy feel. It was filled with spiced lamb bits and topped with pine nuts for a contrasting texture and stronger flavour. It was accompanied with some fluffy and soft bread.

This was super good that I unknowingly I devour it within seconds

Available throughout the month of Sep, 𝗜𝘀𝗮𝗸𝗶 𝗥𝗼𝗹𝗹 features Isaki, sushi rice, shisho nikiri, Egyptian flower, and delicate white alyssum on a bed of crispy seaweed.

This was a complimentary handroll as I ordered RAPPU JIGO 6.

I ain’t gonna lie, I forgot most of the cocktails we had at @thekongsee.sg. However, I do remember that you MUST order a cocktail or four from The Kongsee’s extensive elixir offerings. Which cocktail is which is a little hazy to me, but I definitely remember being impressed by an Ol’ Fashioned TCM ($23++), which is probably the bottom left glass in the first picture. ⠀

Malt whisky is married to aromatic Mandarin bitters, and the bitter notes are balanced out with the sweetness of red dates & dark chocolate. It smells like a really nice traditional Chinese medicine hall, and this silky smooth concoction does taste a little like medicine. However it’s the most delicious medicine you’ll ever have, and probably the most effective too.⠀

Other crackin’ cocktails include the fabulously floral Once and Flor-al ($23++), which is a gin sour that’s been jazzed up by the inclusion of elderflower & lavender. The Pandan Punk ($23++ too) has the aromatics of pandan married to the sweetness of rum, and punctuated by a dash of citrus. The cocktails at The Kongsee do tend to be on the sweeter end of the spectrum, and would probably be more suited to the ladies. Still, alcohol is alcohol, and I’ll drink it with gusto.

Till we meet again, thank you so much for the generous hospitality @thekongsee.sg & @kevin._.ngan, and thanks for inviting me along @wobblethebui!⠀

@thekongsee.sg may not have the most extensive dessert selection, but it is one of the most tightly curated ones in a Singaporean restaurant. There are only three dessert items available, but all three are quite tremendous.⠀

Next up was the Churro Waffle with Kaya Ice Cream ($12++ as well), which was a fittingly decadent finale for a luxurious meal. The Kaya Ice Cream, which is made in house if I recall correctly, was inundated with the fragrance of pandan & gula melaka, and has a strong sweetness that carried over perfectly to the churro. The Kongsee had made an effort to ensure that the oil used to deep fry the churros is clean as possible, resulting in an airy, fluffy churro that sports a crusty exterior devoid of any offensive odours from the oil. The churro was purpose built to soak up the fast melting kaya ice cream, and it did that effortlessly. There was never a worry about the ice cream melting or the churro going cold, because every element was so exemplary that we polished everything off in record timing.⠀

Thanks for having us, @thekongsee.sg & @kevin._.ngan, and thanks for letting me be a plus one @wobblethebui!
