CUT at Marina Bay Sands. I’ve often walked past this fancy looking place with it’s high ceilings, dark wood furniture, cosy bar counter and dim interiors, and wondered what it be like to dine inside.
Finally this Christmas, I ventured down with a group of friends, ready to tackle a very handsome (literally) looking menu.
(I think they put Bon Jovi’s face there to make the ladies gush with pleasure)
Warm mini cheese puffs. Great with a glass of bubbly.
4 types of complimentary starter breads. Served warm and fresh, they are so good it is very hard to resist not filling up your tummy with it!
Mini Wagyu sliders. YUMS 🙂
Austrain Oxtail Bouillon, Chervil, Bone Marrow Dumplings
Warm Asparagues, Poached Egg, Mushroom Marmalade, Warm Bacon Vinaigrette. Favorite with the ladies
Prawn Cocktail, Wasabi Panna Cotta, Celery Salt, Avocado Mousse, Yuzu Citrus.
American Blue Crab and Shrimp Louis Spicy Tomato-Horseradish.
Bigeye Tuna Tartare, Wasabi Aioli, Ginger, Togarashi Crisps, Tosa Soy
Black Winter Truffle Tagliatelle Pasta. Portion is size of a fist.
We ordered 6 different types of meat. My favorite was the Iberico Pork Chop. It was unbelievable tender. The US meats were good too. I was quite disappointed with the Japanese Wagyu which turn out rather chewy. Perhaps we should have asked for it to be medium+ instead of all the meats at medium rare+
Thought the lobster meat was quite tough and dry as well 😦 although the size of the catch was rather impressive.
Tempura Onion Rings. Finely sliced, not soggy, crisp. But could have laid off the salt bath.
Hokkaido Pumpkin, Red Onion, Tahini and Zatar. Well roasted, but very heavy on the stomach. Better for sharing with many people or a main meal by itself.
French Fries with Herbs. Lovely that it’s thin and light, but again, could have laid off the salt bath.
Cavatappi Pasta “Mac & Cheese”, White Cheddar. The Mac is very al dente and I wish they flooded the dish with more cheesy goodness. On it’s own this would have made a very nice main.
Creamed Spinach with Fried Egg. This was surprisingly light yet flavorful, makes me feel less guilty about indulging in multiple helpings of it 😀
Let me just say for the record I am not a desserts person. I would happily pass my cakes, sweets, ice-cream to the diner next to me anytime (lucky them). But CUT does a really great job of their sweets, so much so that I was stealing other people’s portions of their desserts.
The complimentary Baked Alaska cake for a friend’s birthday. Inside this pretty shell is a whole scoop of coconut ice-cream. It was so good I took even the birthday girl’s share of it.
“Banana Cream Pie”, Crème Brûlée, Chocolate Pearls, Caramel Banana Ice Cream. Full of banana goodness!
Valrhona Chocolate Souffle, Crème Fraiche Cream, Hazelnut Praline, Nutella Ice Cream. Imagine your usual lava cake and tripling up the ante with quality ingredients. Oh yummm 🙂
In Fine Dining, not only must the food deliver, great and surprising service is an absolute must. If the food is good but the service is not, one might as well head to the neighborhood restaurant. CUT delivers on it’s service. For the food, whilst they generally do (I much enjoyed the starters and desserts better than the mains), for now, at these crazy prices, I think I will stick to Morton’s if I want just a steak experience instead.
Price we paid per person (with wine) $220.
