Okay this was wonderful. The cheese bread (a pao de queijo, if I’m not wrong) had such great texture. There’s a very thin and crisp layer on the outside. Biting into it reveals a warm, cheesy and chewy interior - kinda like mochi bread. These were great on their own, but dipping them into the comte (cheese) cream is a good choice as well. The comte cream was fairly light, and the cheese on cheese combi surprisingly did not feel overwhelming / jelat. I can see why many people recommended this, and I would definitely get this again on my next visit!

The fish was not bad - I liked how crunchy the batter was, without feeling greasy. (My bf says that it was slightly joosy, seasoned nicely.) The chips had some skin on, which I usually like, but these didn’t have the super crisp exterior, plush & fluffy interior thing going on - I had expected better chips. The tartare sauce though, was really good. There was dill (I think) and maybe some other additions, which really elevated the sauce and we both enjoyed it very much. The peas were also unexpectedly delicious! Texture was great, neither mushy nor hard. Think it’s one of the best, if not the best peas I’ve had.

This was surprising! I don’t really like the taste of beetroot, but with this being a tarte tartin, the beety taste was masked. Not sure if the sweetness was due to the caramelisation + natural sweetness of the beets, or just the sugar added when making the dish. Either way, it was delish! The puff pastry did get soggy after a while, due to the juices. The king salmon rillette paired well, and the salad with a sour dressing rounded off the dish nicely. It’s something I’ll try once, and while I did like it, I probably would not order this again - I’ll like to try something different.

This came with babaganoush, basil and dukkah. Felt this was the weakest dish out of everything. Had wanted to get the eggplant, but it’s no longer on the menu. The zucchini tasted very average, not that it was bad but it was nothing to shout about. Preferred the babaganoush over the zucchini, but wouldn’t order this again the next time I’m here!

Not usually a fan of baby corn (I prefer regular corn), but found this alright - the smoked miso was indeed smoky and savoury. However, they were heavy handed in seasoning one of the corn pieces, resulting in a v salty bite :/ I loved the crunchy stuff outside tho! Not sure if it’s puffed rice but it was delish.

This arrived first and it set my expectations high for the rest of the meal. This was daaamn good - you get a crisp waffle that is neither too airy nor dense; chicken liver parfait was savoury and creamy smooth without coming off too strong; date jam was sweet but not cloying. The flavours came together very nicely and we enjoyed it thoroughly :)

This was really rich with the chocolate shortbread (more like a moist cake) + ganache, but the raspberry lychee sorbet helped to cut through the richness. The gianduja crème was my favourite component. I also liked the thin crepe-paper looking thing, which had an interesting texture and had a berry taste. This dessert got a little jelat at the end, even though I had shared it with my bf.

This was quite refreshing and not overly sweet. I particularly enjoyed the granola and caramelised almonds. The panna cotta was light and had a delicate flavour. However, there was no strawberry-cheesecake taste at all, but I wasn’t too bothered. Desserts were alright, but not outstanding.

The pork was juicy (cooked to a medium-well doneness), with a nice char and a good lean/fat ratio. The middle pieces were more tasty. While we were not blown away, it was pretty decent. The fuji apple was the standout component, as they were soft but slightly crunchy, and was caramelised very nicely. We also liked the spiced sauce!

First time having quail, which tasted like duck, but with a texture similar to chicken. I wasn’t a big fan of the meat itself, but the sauce was really nice! It tasted kinda like a teriyaki meat sauce - sweet, with some meaty flavours. My dining partner particularly liked the brioche, which was well-seasoned and not overly mushy. The thigh meat was quite tender, but the lean parts were slightly drier and too gamey for my liking.

Another one of our favourites! The agnolotti pasta was really soft but held its shape / wasn’t mushy, and the porcini mushroom filling encased within had a good bite, as there were small bits of chopped mushroom rather than a purée/paste. It tasted like pouches of good mushroom soup. I usually have filled pastas with a richer/creamier taste, but I enjoyed this as I felt it had certain finesse, and it doesn’t get jelat.

This was one of our favourites. The sesame-studded cone was crunchy and shattered nicely, and had a nutty, savoury-sweet taste that was somewhat reminiscent of furikake. It contained some good spicy cubes tuna, with a gentle spice kick.
