the restaurant is located at one end of China Square and was rather quiet at 7pm on a week night. It is nothing like those Korean bbq restaurant you see at the malls. And it is bbq with charcoal.
We usually avoid restaurants at main attraction points but we have been told that this place is good though price on the higher end. It turned out that food was good, location excellent – this will be one of the place we can take visitors to.
Deep fried yo tau with fish paste – almost all seafood restaurants have this dish but in my opinion, this was the best out of all the ones I have had.
Braised port loins with buns – tasty!
We finally went to the Supertree at night! Magnificent trees. A lot of people lay on the floor to enjoy the view. We also tried Hill Street Coffee Shop @ Supertree Dining…very nice local food. This would be one of the spot we can take our visitors. Very well done salted fish fried rice Laksa was good. Satay portion very generous. I asked for less sugar and they were so kind to serve condensed milk and evaporated milk separately.
The Pollen experience starts from the buggy ride from the Gardens by the Bay main gate… The buggy will take you right to the restaurant main entrance which on one side of the flower dome…on the way pass by the Singapore Flyer…
Truffle mousse on a bun Macaron that tasted like seaweed Scallop carpaccio…very refreshing More truffle mousse…Foie gras with asian ingredientsCured salmonLambBeef short rib
Hoegaarden ice-cream with vanilla lemon parfait and poached pearsHomemade raspberry and white chocolate ice-cream bar
After dinner we got the chance to visit the kitchen and chatted with the chefs and was told that dishes are similar to their main restaurant in London but which an Asian touch.
Dining at Pollen also comes with complimentary access to the flower dome but unfortunately it was too late by the time we finished dinner. However, their staff offered to give us access to the dome another day if we so wish.
We thought about going to Osteria Mozza many times but could never make up our mind cause the kids often want both pizza and pasta, and you could only get either one depending which of the two Osteria Mozza restaurants you choose. Food are delicious and I like that their “individual” pasta portion isn’t too big and just right for the kids.
