Kite @ Craig Road, Singapore
July 9, 2016
Kite is the kind of restaurant that makes eating out a pleasurable experience, conjuring small plates & cocktails that combine intelligent know-how with imaginative whimsy - sure, some of the dishes here fare better than others, but the sense of experimentation is exuberantly infectious throughout. The restaurant proves there's more than one way to skin a chicken or pig, serving memorable starters like dried chicken skin with bourbon glaze & juniper or crispy pork skin with togarashi spices & lime mayo ($6 each). It also wins our heart by offering sweetbread, presented as fried nuggets in a creamy curry sauce ($12).
Asian influences abound - somen is thoroughly infused with lap cheong oil, the unmistakably pungent, sweet-salty flavour & fragrance of Chinese sausages permeating every strand, topped with prawns for extra dynamics in taste & dimensions of texture ($12). For meat, there's quail with barley, mushrooms & spiced jus ($16), pleasant but overshadowed by the potently succulent medium-rare Spanish black pig complemented with chestnuts, walnuts, apple & plum ($18). Cocktails (averaging $20) are also a should-order, with striking components like pandan vodka, cocoa nori syrup, red dates syrup & walnut bitters.
