When culinary meets "art-de-vivre", this new kid on the block is wooing diners with their oasis of fine food. And if you don’t mind remortgaging your house for a dinner, this place is for you.
Since Guy Savoy made their statement at the Marina Bay Sands, I’ve been dying to step foot in this savvy restaurant. Then came my birthday; an absolute excuse to get pampered @ S$375/pax (set menu) or S$1,000 for 2, incl drinks & taxes. Reservation was made a month ahead, to ensure I secure a place there.
Readers who follow my blog would probably know that I don’t really like fish. I think it comes from my mum; she doesn’t like fish too. I only take very few types of fish like Cod, Salmon, Sea Bass, Kuning (often deep-fried till crispy & served with Nasi Lemak, a Coconut Rice). And if I do take, I normally don’t finish the entire piece. I get "sick" if I eat too much. LOL! Ironically, I often cook fish because I know the goodness of it. The yummy fish dishes are mostly prepared for my family.
It was a magical gastronomic experience around a nicely dressed table; a whole spectrum of haute dining experience that was sheer heaven. As far as big-ticket diners go, the Chef's tasting menu is a decadent splurge that's worth every penny comparing to its Ala Carte. Despite the extravagant price tag, the restaurant was almost packed to a bream. I can now understand why. It’s definitely a cut above the rest. Rating: 4½/5
