I was quite excited to check this place out with friends after viewing pages of delicious food feeds of Catalunya, Singapore.
We came down on a Wednesday night (their new ladies nights), featuring 1-for-1 cocktails for ladies, followed by a night of dancing just above the waters of Singapore. What I liked about the setting was the chance to dine with a view of the waters of marina bay just next to the window, and off Marina Bay Sands just where we were seated, such an lovely experience 🙂 No photos cos it was too dark!
We started with the Spherical Olive ($3 each). The thin membrane bursts in your mouth leaving an intense green flavor of olives. This molecular gastronomy technique employed here was made popular by Farran Adria.
Too bad El Bulli is no longer in operation. It certainly would have been on my bucket list to go! I guess this will be the closest I ever get to imagining how it might have been like to dine there.
White asparagus. $18. Specially flown in, steamed just right, with a nice bite, and topped with tarragon mayonnaise. I didn’t quite appreciate the fruit bits though. Thought the sharp flavor contrasted just a tad too much against the clean asparagus and cream texture of the mayonnaise. Sometimes less is more.
Avocado Battered Roll $20. Composed with crab, avocado, vegetables & mayonnaise. Flavorful & delightful. But portion was really too small… it was gone in no time..!
Really enjoyed this Reversed Gin and Tonic $28 (only 50 sets per made per week. Very limited edition!)
Martin Miller’s Gin with citrus peel, smoked & carbonated. And Martin Miller’s Perfect Pairing Home-Made Tonic with white cardamom, red pepper, lemon peel, grapefruit peel, cucumber.
