Urban @ Istana Hotel revised

The customizable salads here are brilliant. The restaurant lets you mix and match your own choices from a vast variety of available ingredients.
Sounds like a recipe for disaster, but the kitchen always whips up a perfectly proportioned creation. This one comprises hydro lettuce, radicchio, cilantro, parsley, pine nuts, jou jou bread, soft boiled egg and rosemary honey soy.

Bay scallops with butter and herb sauce. A succulent pleasure.

Feta & pumpkin tortellini. Looks like a puny portion, but it was pretty filling.

Australian rice-crusted seabass with organic bok choy, crispy salt and pepper squid, lemongrass coconut stock and coriander. Skillfully concocted.
