Cherry jus inspired by the Singapore Sling, with frozen cherry parfait on top. What a lovely end to the meal.

Cucumber sorbet and Chinese celery granita in gin syrup covered with a meringue made of dried cucumber skin. It is very unusual to be served cucumber and celery as dessert. I had my doubts initially but @iakkai42 who served us the dish assured us that we will like it. He was absolutely right, the combination of cucumber and salary with slightly sweetened gin syrup was excellent. Who would have thought a strong tasting vegetable like celery could be made into a dessert?

There is a story behind the creation of this unique dessert. The team was struggling with sourcing fresh fruits at the local Taiwan market when a typhoon hit and were left with only these vegetables. Amazing how a little challenge can bring out the best in a team. Loved this creative dessert 😍.

Served with burnt onion jus, koji, coffee and maitake mushrooms. These ribs were amazing!! Tender and full of flavour.

Seasonal vegetables, all prepared in different ways (fried, roasted, fresh etc) to create different textures and tastes, with fermented black beans. I loved how colourful and fresh it was.

Seasoned with Taiwanese preserved daikon and served with pickled onion, confit egg yolk, shrimp oil, clam mayonnaise and lotus crumble. This dish was an amazing play of colours, textures and tastes. Loved the crunch in the dish too. Really amazing.
*
I think @richie_lin, @long_xiong and @iakkai42 are really talented. I first heard about @mume_taiwan when I was dining at Den in Tokyo, then through @little_meg_siu_meg's posts (big fan of hers) and again when they made their debut in Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. When @nantheless said she had an amazing meal at an 8 hands collab #pollenxmume, I immediately booked for the next night 😊. Thanks @nantheless! I didn't even know @mume_taiwan was in town.
*
I would really like to dine at @mume_taiwan some day. All I have to do now is plan a trip to Taiwan πŸ˜‚!

Cured king salmon, seaweed sand and grapefruit. A very light and refreshing appetiser.

These were absolutely amazing!
*
Chicken liver pate with beetroot jelly on toasted brioche. I am typically not a fan of chicken liver but this had just the right taste and texture in an umami mouthful.
*
If I thought the first amuse bouche was amazing, the second one completely blew me away. Corn puree with crabmeat dressed in vinaigrette on quinoa toast topped with osmanthus. Truly amazing!
*
What a wonderful way to start our meal. @nantheless thank you so much for recommending this 8 hands collaboration dinner between Pollen and Mume.

Hand ground meat served in fresh daily baked bread. Comes with a side of crispy fries. Very decent value at $10, and tasty too.
*
In contrast, the additional order of fries (in the background) with truffle oil, parmesan cheese and garlic priced at $10 was not worth it. It was a little mild and I couldn't really taste the truffle nor garlic.
*
The Butcher's Kitchen, opened by The Butcher of Holland Village, took over the space occupied by Bottura in Suntec City. It had a decently priced menu. Worth paying a visit to if you are in Suntec City.

Spiced ketel one vodka with lobster tomato juice and lobster tail. This is definitely one for lobster lovers. You can really taste the savoury lobster flavour in the cocktail.

After hearing @nantheless and @nomadicexpat speak so passionately about Humpback (on separate occasions), we arrived with high expectations but also with a pretty full stomach after Spago. Definitely a high bar to beat.
*
Yet the lobster roll was sooo good that it was gone in no time at all πŸ˜‹. I especially loved the soft, buttery bread.

When asked what his favourite cocktail was, @fongjoe1219 replied 'negroni'. Naturally, we (meaning @sk_food_and_travel) had to try the negroni. It was really good - aromatic and smoky. We were told that the secret was Fernet-Branca, an Italian herbal liqueur, and smoked cinnamon. An interesting twist to an old classic.
*
After dinner, @fongjoe1219 introduced @sk_food_and_travel to what he called 'Three Way', a cocktail of bourbon,scotch and rum. Now that was a perfect way to end dinner πŸ˜‹.

A popular Brazilian dessert made of egg yolk, sugar and ground coconut. Brazil, a former Portuguese colony, has strong Portuguese influence in its cuisine. Malacca, in Malaysia, was also colonised by the Portuguese and for this same reason, this dessert tasted so familiar! It reminded me of Portuguese egg tart but the addition of coconut made it also taste like kaya (coconut jam)!
