We were first served Amuse-bouche, compliments from the chef. It’s little bits of “dried” seafood, somewhat tasted like dried shrimps (虾米), submerged in a glass of thick but light & delicious Pumpkin “mousse”. I found the seafood too salty for my liking, I’d probably substitute it with fresh ones instead. I’m not a pumpkin fan but I’m definitely gonna add this interesting starter to my To-do-list & get some guinea pigs to try my version. Friends….. beware!
Fresh oysters are flown in weekly to the Hilton. The menu offers 3 choices – Gatinated with traditional “Beurre d’ Escargot”, Mornay or Kilpatrick style S$10/piece or S$12/piece for “White Pearls”. The latter’s probably taken better fresh but I was in the mood for Kilpatrick. Oyster’s plumpy & juicy.
A popular favourite amongst regulars is the Spaghetti Truffle with Foie Gras @ S$44. I thought the price was around S$36 when I was there a month ago. Probably I was charged higher as it was not on the menu this time.
Well, if you can’t find the pasta in the menu, make a special request & the Chef would be delighted to cook for you. The Foie Gras here comes in big, chunky cubes & the truffles & cheese blend is a perfect combination. I prefer mine slightly crispy on the outside & I got mine done to my liking.
We ended our meal with an assortment of petite French desserts, compliments from the chef.
I had Peppermint Tea & my friend, Latte. This tray of sugar cubes looks simply too good to be taken. My friend & I left the restaurant, satisfied. It's a 4/5!
