This has a generous amount of earthy sweet pumpkin puree gravy, whose thick velvety texture complements the wobbly soft silken tofu beancurd, and imparts it delicious flavour.
.
Garnished with bouncy deshelled prawns / shrimp, tender crab meat, and chewy dried scallops, which lend mild salty savoury sweet notes to the dish. Yum.

Formerly known as "7-Up Pork Ribs", but now with a splash of champagne for marketing, this still uses the 7-Up soft drink to marinade the pork ribs (along with a sweet and sour sauce), resulting in it being tender, juicy, and succulent.
.
They've taken the effort to debone it completely, making it easy to eat.
.
With bold sweet savoury sour flavour that is light and addictive, this was a real treat.

Addictive nuggets of round little fried cheddar cheese balls, coated in a crisp batter, seasoned with thyme and honey.
.
You get the crisp crunch, the bright burst of floral herbal sweet notes, followed by the salty savoury cheesy flavour within.
.
So yummy, we could just keep popping these with a good movie.

This is a delightful rice bowl.
.
Over a bed of fluffy soft sticky Japanese white rice with grainy sweet flavour, is laid medium rare chunks of Hokubee meltique beef.
.
Meltique beef is a type of beef which has fats introduced into lean meat in order to give the appearance and texture of marbling (via the traditional French culinary method 'Pique').
.
The beef is chewy and tender and juicy, with bold meaty fatty savoury salty flavour.

Accompanied by strips of crisp shredded pickled daikon radish with sour sweet vegetal flavour, and a runny onsen egg with eggy sweet flavour whose golden yolk oozes out to coat everything in a silky smooth sheen.

Traditionally a type of gelato, the version here is reintepreted instead as a savoury appetizer, though it could adequately pass as a dessert too. Confusing!.
.
It's a glorious mess of burrata cheese, seasonal fruits (we had torched persimmon and caramelised peach), red radish, corn kernels or asparagus, and honeyed mixed nuts.
.
With contrasting crunchy juicy soft tender chewy textures, and bright floral sweet vegetal fruity earthy nutty flavours, this was actually rather tasty and pleasing on the palate.
.
A bit more honey or maple syrup, and the use of sweeter fruits, would make this a dessert.

The Fried Mantou (SGD $3) is crisp on the outside, spongy on the inside, with a deep bready savoury flavour.

The Hummus (SGD $3) was excellent too, with its creamy grainy texture and deep earthy sweet savoury flavour.

A premium, off-menu special.
.
This luxurious dish features a large, meaty crab, filled with fresh roe and juicy succulent crab meat.
.
With delicate clean-tasting sweet savoury flavour, the crab has been stewed over the thin silky bee hoon, imparting it with rich flavour.
.
The result is an incredible crab bee hoon dish unlike other versions elsewhere, with the key difference being the crab roe which infuses the noodles.
.
Luxurious and delicious, though expensive.

.
It's stacked high with a medley of fillings, including bouncy button mushrooms, tender carrots, crunchy celery, crisp bell peppers, firm cashew nuts, soft white onions, and juicy shrimp.
.
With a pleasing vegetal sweet savoury salty earthy nutty combination of flavours, this was so delightful and satisfying.
