Kilo@Pact, Orchard Central

This happened many months ago, I heard they renovated. Ms Atas wanted to introduce me this raw, zen joint and after I tried, I agreed with her: the food was fantastic, with great complexity.

Kilo at Pact is a shop with 3 concepts: food, salon and fashion. We only ordered from the ‘To Share’ menu but there are also mains like pastas, sandwiches, and big plates. What I liked was the food was like opening a surprise present , they looked different the description on the menu.

Order these: avocado-wasabi tuna tartare ($20) was fresh enough to have a nice firm bite, with a complex creamy taste; crispy quail eggs ($8, pictured above) were interesting, a crispy tempura-like crust meets a smooth egg and slightly runny yolk. Eggplant donburi ($12) didn’t have rice, it was eggplant drizzled with donburi sauce (dashi+soy sauce), with a dollop of heavenly mascarpone cheese. Super delicious as eggplant soaked up the oily sauce. A pity spicy pork cubes ($12) is no longer on the menu; it was irresistible melt-in-your-mouth pork belly.

The okay item was raw’s seafood ceviche ($19, pictured below): tuna, salmon and octopus in thai lime-chilli dressing. It tasted like what the description stated: zesty but not as spectacular as other dishes.

Their weakest area should be their dessert: the lemon cream tart ($7, below) tasted artificial, but they were smart enough to give two tarts. My theory is if the food is bad, give a pile of it so that customers will think it good value.

We spent a total of about $80 for two. While there are many atas restaurants that offer good value set lunches at about the same price, the complexity and exquisiteness of the food at Kilo@Pact is worth several visits.
