Jellyfish "flower" with aged black vinegar. Had a nice, springy bite to it. The vinegar provided a tartness that helped to make this anything but bland.
Japanese cucumber with chili & oil. Crunchy, but skip it if you're not into cucumber.
Salmon in green curry. The fish was moist and juicy; thankfully, its natural sweetness wasn't overpowered by the creamy curry.
Honey-glazed black cod with champagne. Forgettable; tasted like regular cod.
Hakka-style braised Hillside lamb neck. Something went awry here; despite being very tender, the lamb was way too gamy, with an almost foul flavour.
Wagyu beef cheek Malay rendang. Super-succulent; anybody who's ever complained about tough beef at Hari Raya open houses would love this.
Pho bo (Vietnamese noodle soup with beef brisket, tendons, tripe & tenderloin). A hearty helping, also with lots of melt-in-the-mouth meat.
Saffronitas (tequila infused with saffron, lime, sugar syrup, cointreau) & Hua Mulan (shiraz, rum, brown sugar, lime).
