~~~ Arteastiq ~~~

Arteastiq - Two Way Lobster (Lobster Thermidor and otah stuffed lobster shell, served with barley risotto) $38

 Two Way Lobster (Lobster Thermidor and otah stuffed lobster shell, served with barley risotto) $38 

This pretty as a picture lobster dish was equally tasty. I really liked the lobster thermidor half, but I was thankful to still have the otah half, or else the whole dish might have been too creamy. It’s not common to see barley being used as the starch, but I think it complemented the rich thermidor and otah flavours. I also liked the bouncy firmness, and hey barley has many health benefits which is great!

  • White asparagus season again with Marriott Pool Grill–And the steaks are perennially good!

    It’s white asparagus season again, so for those of you who love white asparagus, now’s the time to indulge when these beautiful stems are at their best. And for those of you who have never tried white asparagus, I highly recommend you to, not least because of the nutrients that’s packed in them. They are juicier, more tender and sweeter than the green asparagus variety.

    From now until 30 April, you can sample white asparagus at Marriott Pool Grill, specially flown in from the Netherlands. There are 3 ala-carte dishes to choose from.

    Marriott Pool Grill - Classic ( Steamed white asparagus, poached egg, hollandaise sauce)  $20

     Classic (Steamed white asparagus, poached egg, hollandaise sauce) $20

    This is the most affordable dish if you just mainly want to sample the white asparagus in its full glory. The creamy and buttery poached egg goes really well with the juicy sweetness of the asparagus.
