A stunning mural in the dining room.
The restaurant welcomed us with a staircase lightened up by classic Chinese lanterns. Once we stepped inside, the Oriental decorations in the dining room made us gobsmacked and I was absolutely obsessed with the beautiful murals on the wall.
Don’t forget to chill with a drink at the restaurant’s bar as well.
Classic and cozy table setting.
The restaurant’s contemporary chic look promised a meal of various flavors with a twist. As usual, I took this opportunity to reveal the top 3 dishes that are loved by the diners here! Don’t forget to read until the end as exciting news are awaiting you there!
1/ Salmon Tartar With Quail Eggs and Caviar
We decided to embark on our indulgence by treating the palate to something refreshing. And this signature Salmon Tartar with Quail Eggs and Caviar quickly enticed us just by its appearance alone! As suggested by its name, the dish features quail eggs and salmon tartar using high-quality salmon mixed with finely chopped cucumber and shallot before being topped with a generous amount of imported Norwegian caviar. I took a spoonful of the tartar, mingled with the house-made Thai chili sauce, sweet basil and this exciting combination was rejuvenating enough to excite my taste buds.
2/ Wagyu Pho with Buckwheat Noodles
3/ Smoked Beef Brisket in Charcoal Bun
Finally, we ended our meal with the signature Smoked Beef Brisket in Charcoal Bun. I was amazed to know that it took 2 whole days to prepare this signature dish – the beef was marinated 1 day before being slow-smoked for another day! The beef was no doubt tender-to-the-bite as you can easily feel every strip of it. Its strong smoke-infused taste was then balanced by the sweet corn, parsley and house-made charcoal bun. A dish for those who love teasing the taste buds with intense flavors.
