Went back to Jaan for Sunday lunch after the previous great dinner.
The view is stunning in the day from the restaurant, and we can't wait for the IR to be completed so that the whole Marina Bay will be even more attractive than now. And of course, more food to eat.
Feuilles de Combawa - Kaffir lime consomme served with stone crab foie gras tartine and baby leek raviolis. Had this last time during dinner. Standards still there. Refreshing soup for a warm summer afternoon.
Did not have any soup, but Chef Andre Chiang made me this special drink which consisted of lychee and it contains edible gold flakes inside!
Hot foie gras jelly topped wild mushroom fricassee under buckwheat brioche crust and black truffle coulis. Fricassee is like a stew, and coulis is a thick sauce made from vegetables or fruits.
Tartine De Tourteau Effiloche - Citrus scented stone crab effiloché on Ratte potato confit and fresh herbs lukewarm potato mousse
Truffe Noire - Spaghetti simply cooked in black truffle butter and slow roasted free range chicken. Think the chicken was a bit over the top. Prefer the pasta simply cooked with black truffle butter and nothing else.
Wild mushroom cigar, courtesy by the chef again.
Macaroni De Boeuf - Thirty-six hour braised short rib, duxelle macaroni and crispy vitelotte chips and shallots. The beef just melts in your mouth. So tender yet still retains the meat texture and fiber. This is a dish which requires lot's of skills and patience.
Joue De Kurobuta Grille - Char-grilled Kurobuta cheek and romaine, caramelized baby onion and smoked basil oil. The pork is very juicy, and has a salty and sweet taste. Caramelized onions always goes very well with grilled pork. A close 2nd to the braised beef.
Earl Grey Tea
Tarte Au Citron - Lemon tart on mini churros, grapefruit Campari granité and its confit. Reminded me of our National Stadium.
Chocolat - Classic Ngyanbo chocolate palet, Tahiti vanilla ice cream “à la minute”. Recently has cravings for anything with vanilla beans in it, especially ice-cream. Nothing beats real vanilla beans.
Great lunch at Jaan. Good view, good companion and good view.
