The Kitchen Table @ W Singapore


When overseas friends now ask where is the hottest and coolest hotel in Singapore, I used to wonder if there is even one in Singapore. But now, I think we can say that W Singapore, is indeed the leader in that category.

The hotel opened its doors about 1 to 2 months ago. And with the opening of the hotel comes 2 new restaurants. Today, we went to the all day dining buffet restaurant for a weekday ala-carte lunch as it was too late for the buffet.

As with the designs of W hotel, The Kitchen Table also contains some elements of "coolness" and "quirkiness".

For example, the water flask looks like something out from a science lab.

Started our lunch with a Spicy Korean miso, silken tofu, roasted pork and scallops (S$32)

Photobucket

This was followed by another soup of the Parsnip and white bean bisque, roasted marron tails (S$24)

Photobucket

This is something you don't often see in Singapore: Braised lamb shank broth, pearl barley, truffle and rosemary (S$24)

Photobucket

For starters, we shared the Brioche and Parmesan crumbed king prawn cutlets with aioli (S$16)

Photobucket

The have some Asian style dishes to share, such as the "Phad Thai" stir-fried rice noodles tiger prawns tamarind sauce (S$37)

Meat lovers who would like to try out the different cuts should order the Mixed grill : wagyu skirt steak, Iberian pork belly, spiced chipolata sausages, foie gras and lamb chops. Rough cut chips, fried onions (S$72)

Photobucket

The mixed grill came with different condiments: BBQ sauce, whole grain mustard, English mustard, chilli sauce

Photobucket

For carbo, we had the King crabmeat rissoni, chilli, fennel and mascarpone (S$38)

Photobucket

A twist in the all-familiar Chinese dim sum: Foie gras and scallop dumplings served with ginger + Worcestershire sauce (S$27)

Photobucket

Here at The Kitchen Table, their desserts are rather unique too. Starting with this Sweet chocolate parfait, honeycomb, kulfi inspired pistachio ice cream (S$18)

Photobucket

and Black mission fig cassata roasted hazel nuts double cream (S$18)


Photobucket

Even the one scoop strawberry ice cream was served with a cutesy spoon with soft silicon handle (S$6)

Conclusion is that the food here is rather average. A few weeks later, we tried out its sister restaurant Skirt which serves grilled meats. And Skirt was a far more better restaurant with pocket friend prices but good quality cuts. Shall update on Skirt in the weeks to come.
