Have you heard of Children Wine? We were pleasantly surprised when we were told that the restaurant served Children Wine which is non-alcoholic grape juice served in wine glass so that children won’t feel left out when their parents are enjoying the food with their wines. How thoughtful of Wine & Chef!
Now let’s come to the food, here’s some of the highlights of the new exquisite dishes that we have tried at Wine & Chef as follows:
Seared Foie Gras ($16)
Every bite into this well-seasoned pan-seared foie gras with sea salt, pistachio and balsamic reduction that sits on a warm, toasted ciabatta is heavenly. The soft, creamy foie gras is perfectly paired with homemade apple and thyme brandy compote to create a wonderful harmony on your tastebuds. Enhance your experience by pairing this with wines that go exceptionally well its Italian reds.
Scallop Capellini ($28)
This is a must try dish when you visit the restaurant. Capellini is a very thin variety of Italian pasta, the pasta is served cold and has a springy and chewy texture couples with fresh, juicy and sweet scallops that are air-flown from Hokkaido. This is a refreshing dish that is suitable for the hot and humid Singapore. It has a strong, aromatic truffle flavour and is a colourful dish filled with bright-red ikura, golden brown fried shallots, shio kombu and furikake that is pleasing and appetising. We enjoyed this dish very much!
Nduja Pasta ($28)
We were told that this pasta dish is one of the crowd favourites at Wine & Chef featuring fresh crayfish, Nduja salami and pasta that is tossed in a umami tomato sauce boasting a earthy and robust flavour that is specially imported from South Italy, Calabria.
Pork Roulade ($24)
When Chef was doing the slicing, we can all hear the crispy sounds coming from the meat. The Pork Roulade is made from their secret five-spiced blend using pork belly and carefully rolled into a roulade, slow-roasted to retain the juicy goodness of the meat. After which the meat will go through high heat resulting in crackling skin on the outside that is super crispy while the meat remains moist and tender. It is a flavourful dish that all will enjoy, please take note that limited portions are available, please call to reserve to avoid disappointment.
