Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - A View of Interior

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road – Labrador, Singapore

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar has took over the gorgeous space previously occupied by Portico Host. We felt it was a lost that Portico Host is no longer around. With the same token, we were glad that Blue Lotus is now here.

 

Before venturing into Mediterranean affairs, Blue Lotus has the Chinese cuisine as their heart and root. From the first restaurant at Sentosa, Blue Lotus Chinese House to the last one before this was a Chinese Noodle Bar at Savourworld. Though we tried food at Blue Lotus Chinese Grill Restaurant previously and love their food, however, we were unsure if they are able to do Mediterranean well. As such, NAHMJ was excited to give the Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen a try to find out for ourselves.

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Al Fresco dinning

 

The fixture remains and the space received a new coat of fresh acqua colour paint resulting a refreshing vibe. 

 

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab Balls ($22)

 

If you are dinning at any Blue Restaurant for the first time, Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab Balls ($22) is the must order. Compact real crab meat with minimum seasoning was in the ball. Dip it into the heavenly spicy chilli pomelo sauce to enjoy it like the Singapore famous chilli crab. This is certainly the most convenient, hassle-free way to eat the crab.

 

Diet of Mediterranean is largely Seafood hence expect lots of seafood dishes at Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen. Next up is the Venus Clams in the Pot ($18). Clam is fresh and the essence is certainly in the broth.

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Octopus & Squid Carpaccio ($18)

 

More seafood, Octopus & Squid Carpaccio ($18). Mix the thin slices of both Octopus and Squid that were plated in circular direction well with the olive oil, lemon juice and Brunoises Peppers.

 

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Serrana Pizza ($20)

 

Pungent cheesy flavour on the thin crust Serrana Pizza ($20) tailor-made for the cheese lovers. Since I am one, I love it.

 

For diners who need more carbohydrates, on the menu were Paella and Risotto. 2 Paella for selections, Squid Ink Rice Paella ($22) or the Classic Rice Paella ($26) that we tried. Personally, I didn’t enjoy the Paella. I couldn’t exactly pinpoint on why though. Maybe, the flavour was not something I am used to, at least for now.

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Tiger Prawn Risotto ($28)

 

Prawn Risotto ($28) was a fabulous choice in my opinion. Flavours, texture and every other element were perfect.

 

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Grilled Meat Platter ($38)

Grilled Meat Platter ($38) is a great sharing large plate. On the platter, both Chicken Leg and Beef are the main meat; diners get to choose either Lamb Rack or Pork Ribs. In addition, there are 2 sides and homemade sauces. All the grilled meat has no marinate, only scattered minimum pepper and salt on them while grilling.

 

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Grilled Alantic Octopus Leg With Herbs ($26)

 

Among all the items I tried at Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen, one of my favourite dish which was agreed by other diners of the night was the Grilled Alantic Octopus Leg With Herbs ($26). Tender with very light chewiness though on the salty spectrum was well executed.

 

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Cheese Cake Cup ($8)

 

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar At Alexandra Road - Cheese Mousse in Cheese Cake Cup

 

This light Cheese Cake Cup ($8) make a good dessert especially after a heavy meaty meal. The cheese mousse was light and airy complemented the cookies crumble base and raspberry sauce added a fruitiness to the cream cheese giving various dimension to the dessert. It is a best way to end the dinner.

 

 

NAHMJ Verdict

 

Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen + Bar was exceeded above my expectation. NAHMJ highly recommend to all.

 

We will be back to Blue Lotus Mediterranean Kitchen to order the Signature Chilli Pomelo Crab Balls and Venus Clams in the Pot for starter, Seranna Pizza, Tiger Prawn Risotto and Grilled Alantic Octopus Leg With Herbs for sharing. Finally ending the meal with the Cheese Cake Cup.
