Meta Executive Lunch Set

$48.00 Β· 12 Reviews

Desserts were the highlight of my 3 course lunch here. That play of textures with wild rice and crispy chocolate, and the unusual pairing of Gochujang with black sesame and green tea was just genius. So good, that it almost made me forget about the disappointing main courses.

Who’s there?


Gnocchi who?

Gnocchi I stole a bite from my friend’s plate. Otherwise how would I know this would be the first gnocchi I’d actually fall for.


Wondrously soft, almost marshmallow-like, these smaller-than-usual pillows were so good I was seriously shook.
The sauce deserves equal credit for the divineness of this dish. I do not have details of the preparation method but I am pretty sure Parmesan and leeks went into it. And those little pearly onions - such a clever touch.


Opened by South Korean chef-owner Sun Kim, who honed his chops in Waku Ghin and Tetsuya's in Sydney, Meta marries French cuisine with Asian flavours. Come for their Meta Executive Lunch Set ($48) β€” a three-course meal that is "an experience for the palate", according to Burppler Dex Neo. Don't be surprised to see interesting pairings on the menu like Hokkaido scallop served with pickled apple, baked raisins and yuzu basil oil, as well as slow-cooked beef cheek with a savoury parsnip miso paste on the side. The latter has been cooked for 40 hours β€” resulting in unbelievably tender beef that doesn't require any knife action. End your meal on a sweet note with the poached pear with ginger sorbet β€” it comes with the yummiest honey jelly and cookie crumble base.

Meta Executive Lunch Set ($48)

The Poached pear with ginger sorbet, honey jelly and cookie crumble base came together as a sensory delight when mixed together. Sweetness from the pear, spiciness from the ginger, subtle sweetness from the honey jelly and the crunchy cookie crumble. Enjoyed this dessert quite a bit!

The Grouper was served with fennel cream, fennel and parsley while mussels and clams sat underneath. What I enjoyed about the grouper was the ultra crispy skin. The fish meat also tasted very fresh but overall, the experience was not mind-blowing.

The Sashimi of Hokkaido Scallop was served with Pickled apple, baked raisins and yuzu basil oil dressing resulting in a tangy and refreshing taste to compliment the sweetness from the scallop sashimi.

This was the highlight for me! Who would have thought that ginger and honey would go so well together? 🍯

Poached pear, ginger sorbet and honey jelly all resting on a bed of crumble. There was even some pickled ginger slices in there. The ginger was slightly sweet and spicy which when combined with the mild honey jelly, just left me smiling at the end of this meal. Good stuff, and really well thought out combination of flavours! πŸ™Œ Kudos to the Meta Restaurant team!

This grouper must have fallen asleep in the sun, cause that skin was so freakin' CRISP! 🐟

You'll want to get in on some of the fennel action – fennel cream and sliced fennel hides some more seafood in the form of clams and mussels. Small but juicy and tasty.


This was the Beef Cheek option (+$10), and this was the standout dish for us. Slow cooked for 40hrs, it was so tender, you didn't even need a knife to cut through it. πŸ”ͺ

Topped off with pickled mushrooms, deep fried barley crisps but what stood out was that oh-so-savoury parsnip miso paste on the side! Smear it on the potato pie or on the beef and all is guuuuud!


My first course was this Sashimi of Hokkaido Scallop. Thinly sliced scallop hiding beneath slivers of pickled apples, swimming in a basil oil slicked pool of yuzu dressing.

Everything about this was fresh, acidic and kept you wanting more. Certainly wished there was more scallops though but the flavours certainly packed a nice punch.
