Glad to have revisited this place after a pretty long while!
For dinner, we had (1) baby popcorn with smoked miso, (2) padron peppers, (3) beetroot with radichio, (4) burrata with pickled chili and heirloom tomatoes, (5) cauliflower with barley and tete de moine (a great veg option!), (6) organic smoked duck with burnt carrot and (7) chocolate parfait with sze chuan meringue and pickled cherries.

One of the rare places where you’re always pleasantly surprised at the reinterpretation of simple ingredients, cohesive concepts and of course, great cooking at its core.
I will dearly miss, the smoked tomato granita on the plump, sweet oysters (cold, sweet, smokey umami); the cheese buns with that aged Comte foam (always wipe the remaining foam off the dish with your fingers), the chicken liver cigars and date jam; that laksa leaf ice cream; ‘Popcorn’; the wagyu tartare with smoked maple butter and deep fried brussel sprouts; artichoke, truffle (I think) and burnt onion consommé (I think); the hapuka and the greatest of them all, the quail.
I cannot wait to visit the new bistro (at the current premises) and new fine dining restaurant (on Amoy Street). Thank you @rishinaleendra and @wamanuela for your wonderful food and hospitality. Michelin star or not, your food always has a place in my stomach and my heart. Goodbye for now, and hello again real soon!

It is very creative. They put millet on the corn. It feels like tiny pop corns on the moist corn itself. Giving the dish different layers of texture.

Great balance of both salty and sweet. The quail was half cooked and the apple purée added a sweet touch to what might have become an overpowering taste from the quail.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the sauces, perhaps they were too strong for my taste buds.


This was served as a snack as part of our 4 course dinner.

This review is gonna be sucha understatement of how amazing these buns were. It’s not the soft and fluffy kind but more of the chewy dough type. The bubbly creamy dip is a perfect match.

They were kind enough to serve us 3 times more haha!
