 <Chilli Crab Spaghettini>

Something still feels missing from this dish. Though the pasta was cooked perfectly and the crab meat was fresh. It lacked the depth and robust flavour that you normally get it a perfect chilli crab dish. I guess I've got to adjust my expectations a little when I taste Asian flavours cooked in a Western way,

 <Donald Russell Angus Tenderloin> 

I chose foie gras butter and housemade puree (Butternut squash) to go along with the steak. The steak was really tender and the sea salt sprinkled on top of it really brought out the flavour of the beef. If you use the foie gras butter on the steak, it kind of over powers it a little. The butternut squash puree was really good. It wasn't too sweet, smooth and without a lump at all.

 <Sticky Toffee Pudding>

Gone was the usual brownie and replaced by a light toffee cake. It wasn't heavy nor overly sugary. Although my wife rave about it, I found it so-so at best.

<Chilled Strawberry Soup>

You don't get to see much strawberry soups in Singapore and this was the first for me. It was served with sparkling wine poured over it, a dash of balsamic, lime sorbet and black pepper. Pretty interesting combination huh? The overall taste was not too bad, really unique and refreshing.
