Onglet, Burnt Onion and Bone Marrow ($26/100g)

This bad boy ended up weighing about 320g... and after watching them carefully portion it out and presenting it to us, I knew it was going to be a winner. The meat was perfectly cooked to medium rare as you can see, but that burnt onion base and the bone marrow sauce makes the dish....

Great Place To Chill Out

Food is consistent with what I have tried at the Hong Kong street outlet but with a much laid back ambience.

The service was attentive and the live singing was excellent!

We were served marinated olives the moment we plonked into our seats.

What we ordered
- Fried calamari with feta cheese (batter was crisp and light, complemented by the savory feta, just missing a wedge of 🍋)
- Jamon croquettas (so creamy and smooth)
- Pork ribs (nicely charred albeit a little too fatty we got jelat towards the end)
- Grilled cauliflower with capers and manchego cheese (this came in a whole cauliflower! It was charred nicely outside, yet the natural sweetness of the vegetable was more so highlighted by the savory cheese and pickled capers!)
- Iberian pork paella (having tried the squid ink paella before, we decided to go porky, this came served with loads of pork ribs, sausages and mushrooms - I prefer the squid ink)

Overall a really nice place to chill out when in Sentosa!

Breakfast At The Knolls

Sometimes it's just nice to take a break from the usual pace and decompress in a lush surroundings of trees, birds and peacocks!

Breakfast at The Knolls was peaceful and enjoyable.

Delicate & Delicious Dim Sum

Decided on a impromptu lunch at Cassia as we were staying over at Capella. Must say the quality of the food is excellent. Will find a chance to come again!

We ordered:
- Abalone Siew Mai
- Double boiled birds nest with dumpling and bamboo supreme broth (this was excellent!)
- XO carrot cake (generous XO sauce, fresh scallops and prawns and loads of dried scallops!)
- Crystal dumpling that was oozing with a rich earthy truffle taste
- Truffle Kurobuta Char Siew Bao (didn't manage to snap this as husband dived into it before I could whip up my phone!)

Breakfast Toasts!

Tried 5 of the toast on the menu finally after wishlisting for a while.

Sourdough is hearty and good. I love the nut butter with honey, hummus and the sage cream cheese with berry compote. The egg salad and vegemite with cheese was also decent.

Lunch in the Garden!

Had the Patagonian toothfish that was nicely executed. It's was done just right and a fork was all you needed to enjoy this dish and the fatty fish pulled apart easily between the layers.

The cauliflower was also roasted well and served with crunchy hazelnuts and capers to balance the texture and taste.

Love.

Good Italian Fare

We ordered the lobster spaghetti for appetizer and the signature veal chop parmigiana and a charred brocollini to share. Dessert was chocolate semi fredo with pistachio. Overall a good hearty meal. Though I must say the service was sub par and passive.

The pasta menu was refreshed so I did not get my oxtail ragu that I was looking for.

A Splendid Italian Luncheon (3 Michelin Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ )

Impeccable and enjoyable from the appetizers all the way to dessert! It's the kind of restaurant where you know you have to visit.

8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana is an Italian restaurant at Shop 202, Alexandra House, Central, Hong Kong. It is the only Italian restaurant outside of Italy to have received 3 stars from the Michelin Guide.

Lunch @ Caprice, Hong Kong

Lunch was delightful with very attentive staff and attention to details.

The meal was on the overall good! One of our favorite places for a decent and reliable meal.

Get the seats be the window and you get the view of the ocean.
