Well, it fell short of expectations. The lobster bisque ($12) was thick and strong with a crustacean flavour but rather saltish and after a couple of mouthfuls, I wished for some cream to cut the overwhelming taste.
I was told the crab capellini pasta (S$26) was done rather nicely. With the Marmalade pasta at the back of my head, I went along with the suggestion. Alas, it was not as expected. I akin my pasta to a glorified fried chor bee hoon with crab meat. It was tasty no doubt but definitely did not feel worthy of the slightly hefty price tag.
My neighbor got the monkfish (S$34) which was all right but could use with more generous seasonings over the otherwise bland white meat.
The best dish for the night came in the form of dessert. We had the baked apple phyllo parcel with maple ironwood ice cream (S$13) which was prepared a la mode. Piping hot, the phyllo parcel was crispy and flaky. The oversized poh-piah was almost bursting at its seams. It was filled with chunky apples and a paste which I believed comprised of oats and almond, studded with raisins. Served alongside was the maple ice cream that was a real delight and left me hungering for more.
Given its awkward location, I really wonder how much longer it will survive.
