We are back at Gordon Grill for the 2nd time. It's a pity that this restaurant is usually not in the radar of most diners, because they serve really good western food with good service too.
After taking this photo, then I noticed that the bar outside actually has a name.
The rather grand lobby. It's quite crowded during the weekends as they hold their English High Teat at the lobby. From the looks of it, the English High Tea's spread looks limited as compared to their Local High Tea spread.
A glass of Medoc to start off our lunch.
The breads were warm and good. I like the Onion Roll.
Ice-Water is also served here at no extra charge.
(From left to right) Marinated Dublin prawn tartar with tomatoes and virgin mary sorbet, Cold Japanese noodles with king crab and farm caviar and truffle oil, Wagyu beef carpaccio with celeriac remoulade and parmesan cheese shavings. Out of these 3, I like the prawn tartar the most.
Braised escargots with red wine fus and garlic puree and melted parsley butter, Hokkaido scallops with Spanish ham and green asparagus with black truffle dressing, Roasted duck Foie Gras with poached pear and raspberry vinegar sorbet. These 3 appetizers were good too.
I like how the soup is served in small cups, so you get to taste 3 flavours in one sitting. Here we have Poultry Comsomme, Lobster Bisque and Mushroom cappuccino.
French Onion Soup, Lobster Bisque, "Soupe du Jour"
The Glazed Yorkshire pork loin with potato fondant, melted spinach and Puy lentil Ragout was good, but the pork was a bit dry for us.
But the U.S. beef fillet with braised cheek in Bourdelaise sauce and seasonal mushrooms will please even the most picky steak lover.
Done medium rare, it was juicy and tender.
Ended the meal with a glass of white Chateau.
Dessert was Arctic roll (an old favourite among many Singaporeans) of vanilla bean ice-cream with marinated red berries
But the best for me was the Pistachio creme brulee with almond crust . It was both creamy, sweet and had some nutty crunch.
I also like the Chocolate and hazelnut tart with a light orange ice-cream.
Silky coconut panna panna cotta with tropical fruit minestrone
Ended the lunch with a cup of hot Coffee with brown sugar crystals.
