Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Interior View

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon – Bras Basah, Singapore

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.

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Interior View From The Entrance

 

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.

 

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Basilic Chips ($10)

 

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Prawn Twister ($12)
 

 

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.

 

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Triple J ($12)

 

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.

 

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Build Your Own Poke ($18)

 

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.

 

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Salmon and Ebiko Pasta ($18)

 

One of the highlight is the Salmon and Ebiko Pasta ($18).

 

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Wagyu Striploin ($24.90)

 

Ta-Da! The Bistro At Manualife Centre With Chef Formerly From Joel Robuchon - Corn Fed Chicken ($17.90)

 

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.
