Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, London


Special thanks to our friend who had been trying to sort out lunch arrangements with Dinner.  Due to the nature of our group (5 kids), the restaurant has arranged for us to dine at their private room (less hassle for everyone!).  Excellent in both food and service! Happy kids too!IMG_2608IMG_2610IMG_2612They have different set lunch menus – the ladies chose the 3-course while the gentlemen took the 4-course one.IMG_2615 First thing first – all kids had steak & fries.  Very tasty and cooked perfectly – crunchy on the outside and juicy inside.  I wouldn’t mind a portion for myself.IMG_2628 Savoury Porridge – frog’s legs, smoked beetroot, garlic, parsley & fennel. Nice juicy frog’s legs.IMG_2629

An orange!  IMG_2634 No, this is the famous “meat fruit”!! Made with mandarin and chicken liver parfait. IMG_2637 Rice & Flesh – saffron, calf tail & red wine.  It was good risotto but the “orange” took all the attention. 🙂IMG_2635

Roast Turbot with mussel & seaweed ketchup, salmon roe & sea rosemary – cooked perfectly, so good my daughter ate half of it (after her steak).  IMG_2641 Hereford Ribeye – good steak but I am afraid the one the kids had was even better.IMG_2639

Another of their famous dish – Tipsy cake – roast pineapple and sweet bread.  Very nice but a bit too filling for the end of the meal.IMG_2644

Ginzawa @ Orchard, Singapore


We have read some good reviews about this restaurant and decided to give it a try for Father’s Day dinner.

It is located in the Palais Renaissance mall on Orchard Road, which is a rather quiet shopping mall a bit off from the busiest part of Orchard Road.

Chawanmushi – portion was big enough for two kids to share. Perfectly steamed.

Ebi Salad – there were tiny fresh shrimps and tiny dried shrimps, nice saladIMG_1364Beef Tataki – very good beef, tender, slightly seared

Aburi sushi set – delicious! I actually preferred aburi sushi when it comes to the more oily fishes. IMG_1366

This is the deluxe version of their chirashi don – a must try dish!! Fresh and high qualify fish and seafood.  They offer it in their lunch set menu but also offer as an ala carte item for dinner.IMG_1360

“House Maki” – caviar, uni, minced toro on top; shrimp and yellow pickle in the middle.  And it is maki size!  Another must try!  Very satisfying!

Salmon skin roll – this was a very pleasant surprise – at other restaurants, I usually would wish they will put in more salmon skin but apparently here is not a problem.IMG_1374

 

Great dinner overall, not cheap but very value for money.  High quality Japanese sushi always come with a price anyway.

We will definitely come back again as this has become my favourite Japanese restaurant in Singapore! 🙂
