After showing us our table, a server checked with us on the type of water (there are a few types to choose from e.g sparkling water, tap water..etc ) that we would like to have. The service was rather swift and each area has a designated server. The server for my table was an ang moh lady by the name of Suzanne (if I remember correctly. Hahahah me n my gold fish memory). A basket of assorted homemade breads were served shortly with salted butter. As a big fan of bread, I was so happy to enjoy the warm assorted bread basket.
For starters, we ordered Seared scallops with carrot purée, treacle cured bacon, apple and celery cress ($24). The scallops were nicely seared but the whole combination is inclined to the sweeter side. It is a good dish to order but perhaps it is a personal preference, we would prefer something more savory for a scallop dish.
We like the Tagliolini with lobster, chili, spring onions, parsley and white wine ($28). The homemade tagliolini was al dente and went well with the white wine sauce. Definitely a tease to our palette. Our only regret is the lobster was overcooked. Boo boo. Perhaps with the high expectations that it is opened by Gordon Ramsey, it was kinda disappointing.
This is one of the highlights of the night, Roasted Black Cod with crushed potatoes, salted capers, artichoke, red wine and lemon sauce ($44). With a price tag of $44, it is rather pricey but I am so convinced that it is worth every dollar spent. The black cod was perfectly cooked with a crispy skin. I love how moist the cod was. The crushed potatoes aka mash was very addictive, buttery and with some textual bites. Overall the combination was beautiful. Me likey.
We ended the night with a bang with Coffee and White Chocolate Parfait with poached blackberries ($18). Blackberries are quite tricky to handle as they can be sour or slightly bitter at times. But after poaching them, they complement the parfait so well. I am surprised by how well balanced the parfait was as white chocolate usually gives people an impression of something very sweet. It was nothing too sweet or overwhelming. I love the hints of coffee notes and the chocolate crisps that gives the smooth parfait a good textural bite.
