Dinner began with a plate of Heirloom Tomato Mozzarella (S$16). Think deconstructed caprese salad made more colorful. Making use of eight different types of tomatoes, it's a refreshing salad mixed with mozzarella cheese, tomato powder, olive powder and kalamata (olive) emulsion. As I ate this, I kept on thinking that this is definitely something that Paul will love. Admittedly though, I was never a tomato fan so it's not one that I would probably order again.
It's the combination of sweet candied hazelnut, acidic balsamic reduction and the very savory foie gras. Not only was it a mix of flavors, you also get all sorts of textures in one bite. Oh, this must be heaven.
For our mains, we had:
A generous cut of New Zealand blue cod fish that melts in your mouth served with spinach, cabbage and yuzu bouillon. I really love how the chef is so creative with his sauces. This was really yummy!
I have to admit that when I read that we're having chicken breast for our mains, my mind went *ho-hum*. I love chicken but it's not the type of meat that excites me anymore. I was impressed at how tender the organic-fed chicken breast was and it went so well with the Earl Grey barley and eryngii mushrooms. Just a note that the barley has an acquired taste which non-tea lovers might not appreciate.
One whole lobster for dinner? WOW! This was the dish that I was looking forward to all evening. I was curious as to how the lobster would be served. Bridge didn't disappoint! Look at the chunky lobster meat together with kombu couscous, squid and some squid ink foam too. This was a winner and note that the size in the photo was just the tasting portion so expect a bigger one that can be shared by two.
I can't imagine we had 3 main courses in one night! What made it even more surprising is that we all managed to clean out all plates dish after dish.
It was a good dinner at Bridge with majority of the dishes were quite delightful. I can't wait to go back, this time with Paul, as I'm sure he will enjoy all these yummy fine dining dishes at such reasonable prices.
