Decent, not great is how I would describe BURN. I got the Blackened Tuna and it came with potato salad and fresh avocado chimmichuri. The potato salad was tasty, what with the amount of mayo on it, and was sufficient to cover my carbs intake for the meal. The ladyfingers also provided a much needed crunch to the meal which was rather dull. Tuna was tender and soft, nothing great to shout about. Portions weren’t big though, so if you’re here to have a filling lunch then you might find yourself better off somewhere else.

Probably inspired by its moniker, the restaurant’s interior sees glossy black marble counters and tabletops, giving off a sleek, classy vibe. We decided to order lightly, intending to do justice to the main event - the steak. Naturally, it arrives on a wooden board, sliced and grilled to a nice shade of rust and brown, with oil glistening off it. Accompanying it is a bulb of roasted garlic and some plump cherry tomatoes, which explodes juice on the first bite. The T-Bone was pretty quality beef, with tension and flavour which you could further amplify by adding salt in varying sodium levels on the side. Black Marble is a nice neighbourhood eatery, though without the pricing like one, and without the pedigree of a high class steakhouse. But hey, this makes for a decent meal nonetheless, and you could always head over to the nearby ice cream parlours for dessert too, if you’re on a date and would like to end the evening on a sweet note.

I felt this was overrated, couldn’t see what the hype was all about. Whilst good, this Lobster & Scallop Saffron Risotto felt fairly textbook. Rice was of the right texture and soaked nicely in smoked mullet bottarga zest and has a savoury, lobster bisque taste. Both the lobster and seafood was grilled to perfection, retaining both its freshness and flavour.

I love me a good foie gras but the rendition here is served with blueberry compote which I found rather queer, as it has a slight almost herbal-like taste to it that just can’t seem to fit right in. But the foie gras itself had a crispness on its edge, that crunches and melts once it enters your mouth. It did come with slow-roasted duck breast too, which was flavourful and tender, and some sprouts of greens which I happily tossed to the side hahah

So addictively good! Can I assure you that this is a genuinely good bar grub that's totally deserving of such high praise? Generous serving with every single mushroom being well seasoned and coated with batter! I can't help but reach out for it in between meals. For the best experience, pair it along with an iced cold beer and let the band serenade you with their ballads. Thank you @burpple for the invite and @stage.prinsep for your warm hospitality!

While I utterly enjoyed their other offerings, not everything is right. Their calamari were baffling. Flat, dull and rubbery, the sauce did little to nothing to salvage it. Give it a miss and try other sides instead.

A place exhibiting chill vibes for a perfect Friday, this is a good place to hang out with friends and bond over snacks and beer, with a live band serenading you with mellow music. ⁣⁣

Wanted the Mushroom Melt but they were out of mushrooms 😭, understandably, given that I went an hour before they close. Settled for the Kale Grilled Cheese, consisting of braised kale, caramelised onions, mozzarella, cheddar, gruyere and white sourdough. The finished product was a crispy sourdough with slight burnt on it, giving off a very nice crunch with every bite. The cheese was also of the right balance, enough to make every bite cheese filled but not overwhelmingly jelat. A very satisfying lunch indeed

This complimentary bread basket was served while we were waiting for the starters to arrive. Warm, crisp and fragrant, these carbs were a delight to devour. Every bite comprises of a promising crunch, with the crumbs falling all over, not that I’m complaining. My mistake was leaving the remaining bread in the basket, so that I can slowly devour them in between dishes. Because upon finishing the the pasta which I had as an appetiser, this bread instantly became ordinary. It felt flat and muted, without the fragrance that it came with when it was first presented upon the table. Now, I blame this on the damn-ingly good pasta.

This Covid-19 situation doesn't seem to deter people away from Lavo, with the restaurant churning customers after customers throughout the 3 hours I was there. I could see the appeal of Lavo - beautiful SG skyline, live jazz band serenading you while you enjoy the spread before you and the companion of your dining partner. Romantic level? 10/10. Came here for the view, but totally forgot to take a picture of it for keepsake. Guess this calls for another round someday? And by the way, this 600g big boy looks the part, but taste was otherwise. Give it a miss

Not a fan of octopus but decided to give this a try regardless, no thanks to raved reviews online. The dish did looked exactly the way it was named, Charred Octopus. What I liked about this was its texture. Unlike other octopus dish, their rendition wasn't chewy. I mean sure, it had a nice bounce to it, but it wasn't rubbery and hard to tear apart. Every bite was great - smokey flavours on the outside, with a zest of lemon to turn things up a little. The dish was gone before you know it. Sorry Hank (Disney reference)

Another must order here is the Quattro Formaggi, which comprises of gorgonzola, parmesan, smoked mozzarella and fontina, quite the cheesy heaven. To quote Bieber, 'Yummy, yummy, yummy ~'
