A house festive creation by Mixologist Vlad Yesepiv, similiar in style to a warm mulled wine.
.
This warm alcoholic beverage is inspired by his Ukrainian culture, and his only reveal is that butter is an ingredient.
.
Beyond the garnish of green apple, you can taste caramel, vanilla, and cinnamon, making the taste profile of this smooth drink fruity spice sweet floral in flavour.
.
Nicely warm and enticing.

Invited tasting.

This house signature combines the flavours and textures of Singaporean rojak and ice cream toast.
.
The large soft toasted white bread is hollowed, and the resulting sticks of white bread fingers are toasted and plated, along with crunchy juicy chunks of strawberry, pineapple, red water apple / red jambu, and young mango.
.
A garnish of grainy biscuit crumble, rough crushed peanuts, smooth assam shrimp paste gravy, and a creamy scoop of vanilla ice cream complete this.
.
Sounds complex, but it manages to somehow work, with bright fruity sweet savoury earthy spice flavours. It's large in portion, and is best shared.

This is beautifully presented as a pair of white swans / black swans.
.
Similar to its counterpart, this has a crisp exterior which crunches softly to reveal the piping hot moist interior, whose blend of yam / taro, fresh deshelled shrimp / prawns, and satay gravy marinated minced chicken, are tender in texture with sweet savoury nutty earthy flavours.
.
Interesting fusion flavours here, nice.

This is generous in its portion of soft wobbly egg white, flaky tender shreds of white mackerel fish, and chewy dried scallops.
.
Completed with a single luscious egg yolk, you're meant to stir the dish well, mixing everything together with a splash of black vinegar, before eating.
.
This has bright eggy sweet savoury sour flavours; I enjoyed it.

This fluffy soft bun tears apart easily to reveal a thick, luscious, creamy filling of yam / taro paste, which slowly oozes out.
.
Almost silky smooth in texture, this has bright earthy sweet salty flavours that are so addictive. Couldn't stop at just one, so we got more.

The soft slippery rice noodle rolls are tighly wrapped around a crisp fried dough fritter, which crunches softly to release the tender bouncy squid cake within.

The 1st serving features the peking duck skin, served with your choice of soft egg crepe or flour crepe, alongside juicy crunchy cucumber, crisp leeks, and a sticky hoisin sauce.
.
Wrap the crisp duck skin with all the ingredients, and bite in, releasing the lovely vegetal sweet savoury meaty salty flavours. An enjoyable, interactive process.
.
The 2nd serving uses the remaining duck meat, stir-fried in a luscious ginger and spring onion gravy.
.
The duck meat is nicely tender with a light chew, and deep meaty savoury flavour. The ginger and spring onions lend a soft crunch, and the gravy is tasty with deep savoury salty herbal flavours.
.
Overall, a good choice of dish for sharing.

The Steamed Shrimp Dumplings (SGD $5.80) or har gow has a medium thin dumpling wrapper. It yields with a light sticky chew, yet holds the warm juicy filling of fresh deshelled shrimp / prawns well. Bite in, and you get a bold enticing burst of sweet savoury flavour.
.
The luxurious Steamed Siew Mai Dumplings With Prawn (SGD $5.80) has a bouncy juicy chew to texture, and a bright burst of sweet savoury flavour from the minced pork and fresh deshelled shrimp / prawns. So delicious.

A beautiful sashimi dish, served over ice, featuring 11 different varieties of raw seafood or fish.
.
The fish varieties include tuna loin, tuna belly, salmon loin, salmon roe, Japanese amberjack / yellowtail, and flying fish roe, while the seafood varieties include squid, prawns / shrimp, octopus, scallop, and sea urchin.
.
Fresh and succulent, each has their own signature texture; tender, bouncy, juicy, or creamy; but all are clean-tasting with bright sweet ocean flavours.
.
However, quality of cut is inconsistent, some being sliced aginst the grain, while others have varying thickness. Have had better elsewhere, but this is still a decent dish to order here.
.
Invited tasting.
