Tablescape is a Modern European restaurant and bar located within the luxurious Grand Park City Hall. The restaurant accords a neoclassical interior design style which features decorative Peranakanstyleaccent floor, pastel coloured chairs, and plenty of natural light through its floor-to-ceilingwindows.
Among the fresh baked bread, my favorite is the onion bread which is soft and fragrant.
Salmon Gravlax with Vegetable shavings, Lemon Myrtle Oil and Cream Cheese Ice Cream. The salmon is very fresh with soft texture. The ice cream which is flavoured with cheese is not so heavy and well balanced with vegetable shavings.
Steak Tartare comes with finely hand-chopped USDA beef – an example of impressive knife skills, carefully honed over time—mixed with the consummate red onions, gherkins, parsley and capers, is stacked with a crackly, battered poached egg. However, I appreciated the presentation of the dish more than the taste.
Veal sweetbread in Pea Soup with Ceps Mushroom Ragu looks simple but yet sophiscated soup makes an elegant start to the dinner. One thing which I want to highlight is that sweetbread is not sweet bread, it is the culinary term for the thymus gland (in the throat) and the pancreas (near the stomach) in calves, lambs and pigs. It tastes tender, creamy and marginally juicy.
Prosciutto Ham Wrapped Monkfish and Maine Lobster on Risotto in Armagnac Bisque my most favoured dish. The Risotto was cooked nearly perfect, the rice locked in the starch nicely which provides the essential for the texture. The lobster is a bit chewy and stringy for my taste but it is part of its charm.
I believe that chef has used the best ingredient and technique to enhance the flavor and bring a new dimension to the Milk-Fed Veal stuffed with Foie Gras, Duxelles and Sage with Cauliflower Mimosa and Madeira Jus. The texture and richness of the Foie Gras makes it an entire experience, a unique sensation for your mouth as your tastebuds take in this richness and the unique texture practically dissolves in your mouth. Together with the milk-fed Veal, the dish is a bit heavy for me, especially I wanted to keep some room for desserts.
The gorgeous Dessert Selection from the Trolley wowed me. The restaurant’s take on guéridon service – brings a bit of flair and fun to round off the dining experience.
A rotation of house-made sweets including Spicy Mango, a mango mousse cake encased in a shell of white chocolate. My favorite dessert of the night are the Raspberry Lychee with Almond Cake, a tribute to the classic Ispahan, offers a burst of tartness from the raspberry and the light sweetness of the lychee in a single bite; and Camembert Cheesecake, which presents a twist to the traditional cream cheesecake.
