Pixy Restaurant & Bar – Contemporary fusion French & Japanese cuisine that is a feast for the eyes and palate

Nestled in one of the shophouses along Mohamed Sultan Road is the unassuming Pixy Restaurant & Bar. The muted tones of the decor belie the creative and somewhat flamboyant fusion French & Japanese cuisine that is offered at Pixy. The restaurant is helmed by Chef Tomine Nobuaki (Nobu) who was born in Japan but grew up in San Francisco during his teenage and early adult years. A graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in the US, he worked in various restaurants such as Gary Danko (US), La Baie in Ritz Carlton Osaka and Luxury resort hotel Sankara in Yakushima before coming to Singapore and helming the fort at Pixy since January 2019.

We had the pleasure to partake in the $100 Omakase Autumn menu, which comprises of 5 dishes. Please scroll down to read more about the omakase. In particular, I would really like to highlight the Foie Gras Flan and Roasted Irish Duck Rouennaise, which are dishes I would not hesitate to try again if given the opportunity.

The English House by Marco Pierre White – Time stands still in this little slice of England

[Media Invite]

Are you a lover of all things British? You have to check out The English House along Mohammad Sultan Road. The elegant restaurant harks back to a bygone era, taking snippets from Singapore’s colonial heritage, Britain’s yesteryears and Marco Pierre White’s earlier years.

Who is Marco Pierre White? He was the first British chef and youngest chef (back then) to be awarded Three Michelin Stars at age 32. He has also trained famous chefs such as Mario Batali and Gordon Ramsay. The name Gordon Ramsay may be more familiar to you simply because of all the television programmes, but it was Marco Pierre White who came first.

Brasserie Wolf at Robertson Walk

I had a great time at Robertson Walk today. I love this place because it is so peaceful. Because it is off the main roads, few people come here and the place is not crowded. There are many restaurants and cafes to choose from, most of them are quite unique and cannot be found in the usual shopping malls. Plus there is the lovely walk along the river. It was a great idea to spend a slow Saturday afternoon. And today, the weather was so accommodating. It was one of those lovely blue sky days with a cool breeze minus the humidity.

We had lunch at Brasserie Wolf, a French restaurant by the Esmirada Group. We got a good seat far away from everybody else. They have a special set menu. A 2-course set lunch costs $25 and a 3-course set lunch costs $35. The main courses on offer were Pan-Seared Salmon, Grilled Beef Onglet, Roasted Rump of Lamb, Roasted Chicken Roulade Stuffed, Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Linquini with Asparagus and Black Olives.

I love tagliatelli so I had my eyes set on the Tagliatelle de Confit de Canard (Duck Confit Tagliatelle) from the ala carte menu so I couldn’t order the set lunch even though I thought it was a very good deal. The Partner wanted the 2-course set lunch of the Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Fresh Fruit Salad with Raspberry Sorbet. I got him to get the 3-course set lunch so that I could order the appetiser of Smooth Chicken Liver Pate with Melba Toast.

Brasserie Wolf also has a 1 for 1 house pour promotion from 12pm – 7pm. On Sundays, children eat free per paying adult. Click here for Brasserie Wolf’s website.

Smooth Chicken Liver Pate and Melba Toast

The smooth chicken liver pate appetiser. It was so delicious I nearly finished all of it even though it made me fuller than I wanted before having my main course. I only wish there were more slices of toast to go with the generous amount of liver pate. I wonder if liver pate is full of cholesterol and fat???

Roasted Pork Tenderloin

The Roasted Pork Tenderloin was indeed very tender

It was nice tagliatelle, but I thought the duck was just a little too dry.

Fresh Fruit Salad with Raspberry Sorbet

When the mixed fruit salad arrived, I was a little taken aback by the not so stylish appearance. I mean who serves apple slices for dessert at a restaurant? Thankfully, it was really refreshing and sweet despite the looks. I think the Partner really enjoyed the Raspberry sorbet, him being a berry person.
