I love the Ebi Katsu Sando 🦐 which have this juicy thick Ebi cutlet sandwiched between finely shredded cabbage, savoury Thai-like spicy sauce, shiso, and lightly-toasted soft pillowy milk bread 🍞 it’s like a Thai-Japanese fusion sandwich 🥪 would actually get this again because the ebi katsu is so well-done👍💯

The sushi course is about 16 courses?!😲 with the next complementing the previous and in increasing intensity✨ a crescendo of seafood gastronomy that just keeps getting better 🎉 the other omakase options has a significant highlights such as the uni jelly💗, sashimi platter 🌸, pork sukiyaki with uni rice 🍙

Only during covid lockdowns!

👑 MUSHROOM ROYALE 👑
Turkish-style pide pizza, abalone mushroom, smoked cheese, egg yolk, garlic butter, 8g shaved truffle 💗

The snacks was a crescendo gastronomy experience ending with a heartwarming node on the mains and a stroll in the gardens through the sweets into full completion✨ the harmonious journey and mastery combination of ingredients truly deserves a one Michelin star (personal review)🌟👍

restaurant tip: ask the restaurant what’s available out of the menu😎‼️and at @habibisansg they have this TRUFFLE BAKED BRIE 🧀✨ the baked part is super chewy and on the tough side - not your usual cheese texture! Then inside is like your cheese pull stick. Quite addictive with the truffle infusion and savory mushrooms🤤

Other than @oliviarestaurant_sg famous burnt cheesecake, you should try their other Spanish dishes while at it!✨ especially their black rice paella that will burn through your wallet 🔥💸 and melt your soul 👻 the juicy Mediterranean red prawn is a first for me!⭐️ definitely not your usual with that tender flesh and unami thick prawn head juices that you have to mix it with the black rice to achieve that 💯 flavor depth of the sea🦐 the beef ragu is definitely beef lovers’ delight with that strong robust aroma that soaks into the pasta broth🥩 the omelette was a usual, no further comments. That mushroom croquette though was another must-order, if you love a excellent bowl of mushroom soup you will love this crispy pop of earthy mushroom 💣💕 but damn this place is pricey🥲

[Sakura Martini]
Made from Sakurao gin limited edition, distilled umeshu, tried and true vodka, mancino Sakura vermouth ✨🍸quite a strong floral kick🌸

[Sakura baked Alaska]
this was dazzling and truly a highlight! One of the most creative desserts I had✨🌸 berry Sakura sorbet inside the Sakura ice bowl with vanilla bombe, white chocolate crispy rice✨🥰 so fancy and yummy!✨

🌟Gaig’s Traditional Cannelloni (S$16.50)
This dish is from the original outlet and it’s definitely the favorite🤩 the soft cylindrical pasta comes stuffed with beef and pork filling with that aromatic truffle cream sauce that I want to just added to everything!✨ one of the best truffle cream I tasted.

🌟 squid ink and seafood fideua ($$32.50)
Noodles! Cooked with fish stock, the dish uses short vermicelli noodles instead of rice in a paella 🥘✨leaving savory black sauce around your mouth with each bite hehe but I love it 🥰

🌟Salmorejo soup and burrata cheese and jamon ice cream ($17)
Hands down to the creative dish of the lot - Cold soup🙌 the intense concentration of tomato in the broth 🍅 the sourness is contrasted with the sweet savory ham ice cream and melted seamlessly with the burrata✨ lots of contrasting chill flavors going on. 💕
