We were there for dinner, and we were first greeted by this grand-looking door at the entrance of the restaurant. The wait staff were very friendly and made you feel at home.
We were seated at the bar-top table facing the kitchen. It was an interesting view to behold as we got to see how food were prepared here. It's also interesting to see that some fresh vegetables were being plucked off the pot to be used in certain dishes and dessert.
We ordered our main courses from the "Umami" category - soft shell crab and miso-marinated silver cod. They were served in small portions but sufficiently filling. The soft shell crab and the salted duck egg yolk sauce went together very very nicely. The cod fish was done the way we like it, soft and tender and fresh.
For desserts, we had the spiced Valrhona lava cake and the avocado ice cream with fried banana fritters. The lava cake comes with an extremely interesting twist to the taste buds. Indian spices were very beautifully merged with the chocolate to make this cake. The avocado ice cream was extremely creamy and it's just perfect for avocado lovers. According to the manager/boss, their ice cream is made fresh in the kitchen from the real fruit itself.
Cost-wise, it seems a little steep though, for a small portion serving. It could be due to the location. But food quality and service in this restaurant, there's no denying that they are tip-top.
