When I got to know that the kitchen of Ta-Da! The Bistro is helmed by a Chef who previously worked for Joel Robuchon I was extremely excited and wanted to visit them immediately. When the chance landed, I seized it and with no regret.
It isn’t easy to spot Ta-Da! The Bistro as it is located at an obscure corner or rather, one would easily dismiss it since it is beside the huge Food Republic. To get to the bistro, once you locate Food Republic from Bras Basah Road, turn into Bencoolen Street which is across Rendezvous Hotel.
Modern looking with homogenous white tables and chairs placed neatly in rows within the space. I like the lighting features that looks like leaves hanging from the ceiling.
The bistro offers an assortment of cuisines such as Asian, French and Italian.
Basilic Chips ($10) and Prawn Twister ($12) are 2 appetisers which we think they made great bar grub. Basilic Chips is made of mashed potato with basil and then deep-fried. This ball reminds me of a dish which my Mom used to made when we were kids. Prawn Twister is similar to Wanton with whole prawn instead of minced.
Triple J ($12) is a signature dish at Ta-da! The Bistro, succulent deep-fried Chicken Wings with homemade blue cheese sauce. Personally, I find the sauce too dilute though I adore the wings.
Poke has recently taken the central stage in the dinning scene in Singapore. Hence Ta-Da! The Bistro, you could Build Your Own Poke ($18). Alternatively, opt for Poke Mee ($15) which is a pre-fixed bowl.
One of the highlight is the Salmon and Ebiko Pasta ($18).
Wagyu Striploin ($24.90) and Corn Fed Chicken ($17.90) are 2 highly recommended items for Mains. A diner who visited Joel Roubochon commented that the mashed potato by the Wagyu Striploin side was similar to what the Michelin Star Restaurant offered.
A pity we didn’t have a chance to try out the Pizza, that’s provide us a good reason for revisit.
The menu for the restaurant are below.
Ta-Da! The Bistro is a great place for a gathering with friends and to savour a preview of 3-Michelin star food.
