At every Spring, vegetation begins with shoots spring forth. One of which, a rare and prized Spring Delicacy that are often snapped up by restaurants is the White Asparagus. This year Pool Grill presents The White Asparagus At Level 5 of Marriott Singapore Tang Plaza with 3 dishes.
One may wonder what results in the pale looking White Asparagus. These White Asparagus is simply the same species of Green Asparagus which didn’t get a chance to turn green. While growing, this vegetable was deprived of sunlight and this process is termed as Etiolation. Hence resulting a delicate and mellow and even nuttiness flavour note in these shoots.
Pool Grill Presents The White Asparagus
This year, Executive Chef of Pool Grill presents the White Asparagus in three dishes with different theme. First the Classic. Followed by Modern and last but not least the Contemporary.
Steamed White Asparagus with Poached Egg & Hollandaise Sauce ($22++ per portion)
The classic way of enjoying the White Asparagus is with Hollandaise Sauce or Vinaigrette. At Pool Grill, they took on the former.
Mimosa Style Gratinated White Asparagus with Manchego Cheese & Chorizo Migas ($24++ per portion)
Crowned with savoury selection of egg, chorizo cum cheese to radiate the sweetness and nuttiness from the white asparagus.
Squid Ink and Scallop Ravioli with White Asparagus & Tomato Butter ($38++ per portion)
Finally, my favourite dish of the night is the ravioli item. The smooth pasta filled with fresh seafood complemented mellow characteristics of White Asparagus. And in addition the crunch from this elusive vegetable provided an added texture too.
With such scarce supply of White Asparagus, it has to be on the bucket list of each foodie. Therefore we recommend you to take this opportunity when Pool Grill presents the White Asparagus in 3 different dishes.
