Chef Daniel had opened a restaurant few years ago at the top level of the then Illuma and it closed down last year, BUT I'm glad I did tried the food at that branch. Food was still ok, it was a little pricey though. BUT at least I tried it before it closed down. :)
So after Chinatown Point was revamped, I heard that Chef Daniel has set up another restaurant there, so I decided to head there for dinner on a Friday night.
The exterior design of the restaurant looks great, isn't it? It looks like a cozy European garden. :) We were lucky to get a table for two without reservations and menus were given to us pretty fast. There were so much selections and kind of difficult to finalise what I wanna eat. I decided on a chicken dish that day!
Oh ya, the main course includes a Soup-of-the-day which was Tomato soup that day.
I ordered a Oven Baked Spring Chicken ($15.50), a Chamomile Tea ($3) and a Aloe Vera Jelly ($5.50) for dessert. Mr Pang ordered the Spaghetti Chilli Crab Sauce ($15.50), a Peppermint tea ($3) and a Creme Brulee ($4.50).
The food did not take long, and while waiting for the food, Chef Daniel came out from the kitchen too and he's quite a friendly person.
The soups and drinks came first!
The soup were pretty good, rich in Tomato flavour and I kind of like it. But the bread which comes with the soup was dry and hard, not crispy at all.
I was not disappointed by the food! The chicken was crispy on the outside, tender and moist on the inside. I do not need to dip the meat in any chilli sauce etc, as the sauce that comes with it bring the flavour out. I also tried a little of the Spaghetti in Chilli Crab sauce, it's really awesome! The sauce taste a little spicy and really goes well with the spaghetti - something which I wanna go back to eat again!
We finished the main course pretty fast because we were famished by then. We chatted for a while while waiting for desserts to be served.
The desserts look pretty, aren't they? The aloe vera jelly is refreshing with a few fruits combination. But the portion is quite big, I'm not able to finish it all. :( As for the creme brulee (this is one of my favourite dessert in life), it tastes really good. The egg is smooth and silky, another plus point!
I will come back again to this restaurant and intending to bring my family here to try the food which are really tasty in my opinion. :)
Oh ya, they have private room dining option too if you have a large crowd, I guess.
