The smooth, creamy foie gras paired really well with the crackly caramelised sugar topping (just like a crรจme brรปlรฉe!) and the cherries helped cut through the richness of the dish. Loved how the toasted brioche buns were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside too.

Loved how strong the flavours of matcha and hojicha were; the earthiness of the ice cream was perfectly complemented by the sweet red bean paste and candied chestnut. The hokkaido milk soft serve was super creamy and rich too.

What made this dessert even better was the variety of textures - the crispy waffle cup, the chewy shiratama dango (mochi), the velvety smooth ice cream - they all go so well together!

Love the crispy skin and flavourful meat with that delicious sauce. You must order it with bones though, the meat tastes so much better and fresher!

This steak tartare is packed with flavour - it's spicy, savoury and citrusy. The texture of the meat is super smooth. What makes this stands out though, is definitely the bone marrow underneath which melts in your mouth. The butteriness of the bone marrow complements the refreshing steak tartare really well!

This lime cheesecake is super light - very different to the usual new york cheesecake you get, almost having the texture of a mousse. The lime flavour is really distinct. This cake is vegan and gluten-free as well!

The pork crackling was super crispy and the meat was so tender that it melts in your mouth. There's only a thin layer of fat which I like as I don't like meats that are too fatty!

This truffle pasta was incredible! The truffle aroma was super strong (there's a generous amount of shaved truffle!) and the pasta was cooked al dente. Loved the rich and creamy mascarpone mushroom sauce which coated the pasta really well.

The decor of this restaurant is amazing too - definitely great for photos!

This kedgeree was super hearty; you can taste the umami from the fish as well as the robust flavour from the curry powder, which has a unique combination of earthy and sweet spices like cumin, turmeric and cinnamon. The poached egg was cooked perfectly - that yolk went really well with the basmati rice!

Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, the pork katsu pairs really well with the rich, flavourful Japanese curry. The scrambled eggs were soft and creamy and I loved how they used fried rice instead of plain white rice inside. Really hearty and definitely a great comfort food!

The beef was perfectly cooked - super tender and juicy. Richly flavoured and earthy, the mushroom duxelles complemented the buttery, flaky puff pastry and the beef tenderloin really well. The red wine jus no doubt elevated the dish even further! The restaurant was super cozy and friendly too.
