Chef Justin Quek’s Signature Starters
Mushroom Cappuccino, Ceps Cream
Duck Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao
Cauliflower Puree, Oscietra Caviar, White Chocolate
Paired with Canard – Duchene Cuvee Leonie Brut
Started off with the Cauliflower Puree came with a touch of Oscietra Caviar for its savouriness, frothy and delicious.
I loved how chef fuses his masterpiece, French style Duck foie gras in Asian Xiu Long Bao. Must open up your olfactory receptors before putting it on the palate as there was an amazing aroma of truffle oil which was very fragrant lingering around!
Duo of Maine Lobster
Wild Mushrooms, Shao Xing Cream
Paired with J. Moreau & Fils Fourchaume, Chablis Premier Cru
Maine Lobster and wild mushrooms, I don’t recall myself having this combo in any restaurant before. Had to say it was a great combination, in a pool of smooth Shao Xing Cream and went smoothly with the Chardonnay. Never thought that the Chinese wine, Shao Xing wine went so well in French dish.
Crispy Scale Blue Cod Fillet
Clam and Herb Fondue
Paired with Dr. Loosen Bernkasteler Lay Riesling Kabinett
Crispy crunchy layer of scaly skin with firm bouncy texture of cod underneath.
Asian Braised Angus Beef and Seared Wagyu Beef
Paired with Knappstein Shiraz Clare Valley
It just wowed my heart. Such a beautiful piece of art, not just for the sight but also for the palate too. Amazingly coupled 2 types of beef on a plate, Angus and Wagyu. The Angus beef was marinated with 2 types of fermented beancurd – “nam yu” and “fu yu”, and braised to perfection. It was very flavourful, tender and sank in between teeth. Whereas the sliced wagyu was almost transparent, lightly seared and it gave a melted buttery fragrant on the palate. Just look at the marbling, so so so pretty!
Chocolate and Mint Floating Island
Caramelised Crispy Rice
Paired with Harveys Bristol Cream Sherry
Chocolate, mint and cream sherry; another great combo. Chef also put in a lot of texture in this sweet ending. Crunchy crispy rice to go with the melt-in-mouth marshmallow-liked floating island. Simply irresistible. How I wish I can have more!
Freshly brewed coffee or Tea
Served with Salted Almond Tuile
