Venues With Views

Venues With Views

Sometimes it’s not just about the food, we go to places for the views and the ‘gram 😂😅. Sometimes the food delights us too, sometimes even the view can’t justify the food served... LETS SEE

Veggies are the new “fetch”. At Joie, an assortment of vegetables are beautifully plated and carefully crafted to create an exciting 6 course set lunch menu.

Started off with a cup of cheese sticks that much resembled raw spaghetti 🍝 to munch on while we waited for the other dishes 🤓. We were then told to cleanse our palettes with a shot of their refreshing juice nestled in a bed of crushed ice * boujEee* 🥃.

Petit Fours included faux sashimi (not a fan of actual raw fish so this was great), a very random cracker and a droplet bursting with pomegranate juice YUM!

Made the idiot decision of ordering Charcoal Coated Tempura — super uninteresting, should’ve gone with the Baby Root on truffled mash. Had AN AMAZING bowl of mushroom soup but it was SO tiny 😞

Had the Gnocchi which had mushroom sauce poured over. Pretty good. My friend had the Duo Ravioli platter which was delicious too. I want to lament about the portion but I have to remind myself that this is “fine dining” 😂.

Went with the Red Wine Poach Pear with Lime Sorbet (tad too sour) which I thought could’ve been presented better... pear 🍐 looks bludgeoned to death. Drinks were super average tending to diabetically bad. Could barely finish my Hawaiian Blue mocktail aka my blue artificial colouring and syrup water.

Hoping for more consistent quality throughout the courses. Would still come back to try their other creative takes and for the tranquil view of the Orchard Central rooftop garden (MUST ask for the seat with the view!!!). Joie is perfect for occasions and heading towards that meat-free lifestyle 🌳 🙌🙌🙌

Appetiser: 🦀 Crab Salad with guacamole and celeriac. A tad too fishy for my palate (which could’ve been rectified by a drizzle of citrus 🍋 ). The plating had potential to be prettier and more balanced in colour.

The dish I was most looking forward to was the Tomato Impossible Meat. Described as “vegetable ratatouille”, I imagined petals of finely sliced squashes nearly arranged. Unfortunately, my childhood Pixar dreams did not come to life that day. Yet I must say that the 🍅 impossible-stuffed roasted tomato was quite clever and wholesome 😋

The other main we had was the Oven Baked Sea Bass. Not the biggest fan of the lentils ragout base as it blended with the fish flesh as a bunch of mush.

Desserts: 🍮 the Creme Brûlée was nothing to shout about but boy was it ginormous! Wished they served a smaller portion and got more creative with this...

🍰 the Mille-Feuille generously filled with vanilla creme was delicious 😋 but also had the tendency to be gelat towards the end.

Walking below the grand chandeliers strung from high ceilings and past the opulent decor studding the light flooded interior, I expected to be seriously blown away by some exquisite French cuisine that day. While the Brasserie les Saveurs gets 💯 for ambiance, food was good but not amazing.

Delicious cocktails with an amazing view of the Singapore skyline. MUST COME AT SUNSET to maximise your visit! $25++ each.
