Had set lunch with Huccalily who was late for an hour. She offered to pay for the meal at $36 (2 courses) or $44 (3 courses). YES!! I saved some money.
Foie gras, apple compote, puff pastry (supplement $8)
Helmed by Executive Chef Christopher Millar, the food focuses on modern Western and Japanese cuisine.
The food, if forgettable, did not cause any offense. Each dish was safe and a tad boring. The two dishes that stood out were (1) yaki shake maki (supplement $8, pictured above), which had a spicy Korean sauce that was exciting, and the taste filled the mouth, though the rice was dry; (2) the dessert, a delightful mango cake with almond croquante.
Seabass with garlic mash
Smoked sirloin with carrot mash (supplement $10)
You can say the selling point is the view but when we were there, we were seated in the middle of the huge hall so we were blocked by others. Heng it was a foggy day and nobody got a view so there were no winners.
While the service was excellent and very attentive, the food didn’t attempt to rock the boat. There were many executives dining so I suppose if lunch is on company’s account, go crazy. But if you’re paying on your own, there are places nearby with more character and exciting food. You can always dine elsewhere and go to the rooftop bar for drinks to enjoy the breeze.
