This new dessert is quite the spectacle and literally comes in burning! The chef charred the sugarcane meringue with a blowtorch and lit up the whole coconut as well, making the coconut strands turn amber like burning stars. Under the meringue is a mishmash of jackfruit pudding, sea coconut cubes, passion fruit seeds and raspberry. A refreshing end to our meal!

This is another dish that’s gonna be on the menu soon. The eggplant is spit roasted until it’s melty and soft and slathered with a sweet tamarind and date glaze and cream coconut mornay sauce. It’s finished with some toasted coconut, and heaps of Parmesan that add saltiness to an otherwise sweet dish. Not bad but it’s a bit sweet for my preference.

Despite being a meat place, the veggies at Meatsmith were pretty good too. In fact, this cauliflower was a show stopper and gathered more attention that one of the meats! It’s smoked and served on tomato relish with fried curry leaves. Incredibly tasty and tasted almost meaty from all the smokiness. I especially enjoyed the charred florets.

This was another favourite dish for me. Kathis is traditionally a kebab wrapped in prata, but here, they use naan and it’s presented (and to be eaten) like tacos. On top of the naan, you have a madras spiced fried sea bass that’s superbly tender and well cooked! It’s garnished with pickled onions and sits on a bed of yogurt sauce. This ranks as one of the better fried fish tacos (kinda...) I’ve had in Singapore and I was very impressed!

This is a new special that they’re planning to put up on their menu soon! It was also one of my other favourites of the appetisers. When you think of bisque, you typically just think of a thick briny soup. Here, the bisque is concentrated in the form of a sauce, but lightened with the addition of olive oil and yogurt, which I thought really complemented each other well! The soft shell crab with pickled onions on top was also pretty meaty and crispy. Loved this!

This cube of meat looks so innocuous but it was one of my favourite appetisers of the night! The pork cheeks are brined before being fried, so while the inside is really crisp like the skin of shao rou, the meat inside just completely melts in your mouth. It’s such a lovely surprise, and it goes well with Madras sauce, which is a curry sauce.

Thank you MeatSmith and Burpple for the eat-up!

These tandoori chicken wings are deboned and stuffed with what seems like minced meat? It wasn’t really my favourite dish of the night though, as I personally didn’t like how much spice powder was on the chicken. The sauce helped to lighten it up though!

This was beautifully presented! It’s a papadum topped generously with ikura, tobiko, and a lightly yogurty cream. Good to share with others or it could be a bit overwhelming since the ikura can be quite salty. Interesting pairing, but I felt that it could have been better with a bit more acid in the dish.

This is one of my favourite places for grilled saba, especially when they have a 50% off promotion in August which makes it even more worth it! The saba here is grilled until the skin the crisp, but the flesh inside is soft and juicy. Despite saba tending to be more lean, it’s surprisingly fat here at some parts of the fish, which makes it so much tastier. When paired with a drizzle of lemon and grated daikon, it’s really heavenly.

This 500g grain fed Angus porterhouse steak that was aged for 200 days is pretty unreal! It was cooked perfectly - very tender and juicy. The fact that it was aged made the meat taste so buttery and concentrated in flavour, with that slight funk you get from ageing meat. (I love it!) It goes perfectly when dipped into the flakey sea salt on the side, and the arugula salad with a tangy dressing helps refresh your palate so that you can easily go back for seconds!

Thanks Burpple and Nassim Hill Bakery Bistro Bar for the eatup!

Wine & Chef’s pan roasted salmon fillet was really good! It was cooked well on the outside, but pink and tender inside, and was garnished with chopped chives and fried onions. I enjoyed eating it with the orange bell pepper purée, and also liked the fact that the salmon was cooked in kombu butter, which was subtle but tasty. The sugar snap peas were wonderfully crunchy. The only thing that fell flat was the quinoa, which had a slightly bitter taste and was a bit too soft. The portion size of the main is also on the smaller side, but it was filling enough with the other courses.

We got this as part of the 3-course set deal by @chopesg a while ago, so it was really worth it since the 3-course lunch is usually $18++. We also got 100 extra Chope points from this reservation by booking our meal on Chope with the promo code from voting on Chope’s Diner Choice 2018! Really worth it since 1000 Chope points entitles you to a $30 voucher for many places.

I loved their chicken liver pate with Meiji crackers. The pate wasn’t as fatty as foie gras, but was still very creamy. There wasn’t a very strong stench and it tasted quite pleasantly light with the biscuits. The portion was also surprisingly big, considering this was only $5!

Bistro du Le Pin occupies a small space on level 2 of Orchard Plaza, which is near Centrepoint, at Somerset mrt and has affordable lunch sets (bara chirashi and omelette rice) for about $15. The chef is Japanese, so you can be assured it’ll be a great experience. Also found out that they offer omakases at night!
