For my mom birthday lunch, I took her to Bread Street Kitchen Singapore for an advance celebration. I was glad she loves the food whipped by the Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen. For me, when it comes to restaurant by Celebrity Chef, I am always skeptical. As I hardly have any good impression with these restaurants. What about this round?
We didn’t manage to make a reservation as a result we walked in and got only bar seats. When seated, we were promptly handed the menu. I noted a list of brunch items a good selection of both cold and hot starters. But when left me a great impression was the Mains and Grills as both were mainly very meaty dishes, that was my take away. Not a bad thing for the carnivores. Luckily, there were a number of salad options too.
Shortly after we have done with our order, we were served a welcome drink each. It was a blend of beetroot, tomato, lemon, radish and carrot. I didn’t like it at all. I find it like medicine. Next came the basket of bread with a hefty slab of butter.
Among the list of both Hot and Cold Starters, we chose Seared scallops, carrot purée, treacle cured bacon, apple, celery cress. The other choices include Alaskan crab, prawns, soup, chicken wings and salmon, sea bass, beef brisket and more … Back the the scallops, a beautifully decorated plate and we tasted freshness.
I wasn’t keen to indulge in meat that day so went for Risotto with céps mushroom, roasted butternut squash, aged parmesan. It thought it was decent with no surprises. But I didn’t like the alkaline after taste that linger a little in the mouth.
Dingley Dell pork chop 10oz was a huge piece of meat to me. It didn’t seem to me that the meat was heavily marinated, instead only with pepper and salt. The piece of meat was of its natural taste.
Chocolate fondant with salted caramel and mint chocolate chip ice cream was one of our dessert choice. We are never able to resist the charm of chocolate.
No disappointment, since the chocolate lava in the cake was chocolaty and it flows.
I chose Blueberry Bakewell tart with crème fraiche Ice-cream. I wasn’t impressed with the tart.
I have a cappuccino to accompany the dessert. A medium to full body, low acidity with nutty, caramel and dark chocolate flavour notes. Just the way I enjoyed my coffee.
Tropical Mix was a concoction of Orange, Pineapple, Mango, Strawberry, Blood Orange, Kiwi, Pear, Honey. A refreshing drink for the sweltering Singapore weather.
The price tag of the food were costly. Our meal for 2, including the taxes and service charge came to $181.26. Decent food with a high price to pay. At least the service was very professional and prompt.
