We order 2 sets of 3-course lunch (S$32++ each) which comes with 1 starter, 1 main and 1 sweet. Bread with balsamic vinegar and olive oil was served while we waited for lunch to be served.
Starters: Adobo duck with onsen-style quail egg with truffle mash and baby spinach; and Burmese tomato and blue swimmer crab salad.
On the house: Shitake mushroom kueh pie-ti.
Main dishes were Laksa pesto linguini with tiger prawns and quail egg; Roast Chilean seabass with chai poh confit and congee; and Salmon donburi with bonito and baby octopus red rice.
Sweets: Wild Rocket strawberry cheesecake (highly highly recommended) and pandan infused panna cotta with salted gula Melaka.
On the house: Wild Rocket Chendol.
All I can say (for all the dishes ordered) is that the dishes are uniquely named, the food are carefully cooked and it is a bliss to dine there. We were fortunate to be offered complimentary dishes (because my friend is a regular customer) and that does not mean that those were of sub-standard. There was none that I can say that it wasn't worth the calories.
