I wouldn’t recommend this dish. It was not flavoursome and wasn’t cooked well with no evidence of any “grill”. You can definitely have better beef elsewhere. Presentation was amazing though.

Summary, fried cauliflower that taste like Gu Lo Yoke.

The dessert read interesting on the menu, but I found the shiitake too overpowering. I can't take the sour cream or the vinegar jello. The whiskey ice cream was good, though too little was served.

The biggest plus for this place is they offer a variety of different tasting menus and ala carte. Tasting menu only restaurants are too restrictive and not for everyday dining. The con is I find the service too overbearing, and it feels like they are trying too hard to talk to their clients instead of letting them enjoy the meal and their company. Oppositely, the ‘sommelier’ was not trying at all, merely pouring you the wine you ordered without any elaboration.

I take it that this is a play of Char Siu rice - well done, chef! I like the porridge with just the right amount of bite coming from the splet. The sous vide pork was cooked well. I hope that serving was bigger though at this price point, and it could definitely do with more Char Siu sauce.

A mix of salad and grilled vegetables promised with a chrysanthemum cauliflower puree. It was alright just to get your email daily dose of greens but it was too salty and finding a hard time tasting any chrysanthemum…

The pork was cooked just right, with a slight pink in the middle to ensure its tenderness. The Vin Jaune sauce finish was what the unflavored pork was screaming for. The artichoke, though good, was overpowering vs. the pork, and it was best to have it separately. It's a good dish, but I'm sure there are better dishes from this fine establishment.

My favourite dish for tonight. Unassuming clam ‘vongole’ decked to the next level with umami uni, garlic and just the right amount of cheese. Don’t expect a soupy version, but it is a flavor-intensive dry pasta. I appreciate the parsley and lemon to cut through any ‘jelatness’.

This was a surprisingly good dessert. The pear and not so sweet month blanc mousse complemented each other perfectly! Adding the bite with the refreshing pear sorbet was just a perfect bite of heaven in my mouth. Highly recommended if you want to try something out of the ordinary than the typical French soufflé. It’s a light dish too if you are already feeling quite full.

Hehe iberico pork has a good mix of fatty and lean parts- it was amazing by itself BUT with the sour cabbage and mustard sauce, it was sublime! You can however give the only vege main a missed, the clunky turnips, carrot and leeks was not a refined dish and would taste quite boring and one dimensional after more than 3 bites…

This appetizer was unique and oh so satisfying. The peppery pulled duck, pickled shallots, and the unassuming rice pancake with slight spicy mango complement each other. I can eat the fermented sour pancake by itself, as good as a well executed sourdough…

The spinach kofta with fig was surprisingly the star dish of the night with coconut and SPICY curry. I love that they give extra curry on the side which was a perfect dipping sauce for the flakey wheat paratha. Skip the coriander chicken - the meat was very tough, either it’s not fresh or very overcooked. Have their wine, for an Indian restaurant, their selection was good!

And as you can see- copious amount of truffles. The noodles is Al dente without over powering truffles taste. Simple and done just right. Appreciate the complementary bread baskets and kueh pi tee bites! The focaccia and olive oil is as perfect as it can get!
