When was the last time you visited Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao? If you haven’t been in recent times, now’s a great time to revisit as the Michelin one starred restaurant popular for its Northern Chinese specialities has recently refreshed its all-day dining menu.

My family and I had the pleasure of checking out their new menu recently. Here’s what we tried and our take on it.

Senso’s revamped Sunday Prosecco Brunch

[Media Invite]

Hands up those of you who would love luxuriating in a long Sunday brunch complete with free-flow bubbly? I would too, but such affairs are usually in excess of $100 especially if you are talking about hotel buffets. Here’s a place that comes in at just under $100++ ($98++), not much cheaper but every little bit helps right? The price must be alright because it was completely full indoors when I was there.

Check out Senso Ristorante & Bar, whose Sunday Prosecco Brunch includes a buffet spread of antipasti (such as Normandy Oysters, Prawns, Italian Cold Cuts) and desserts. There are also a few mains to choose from, with no limit on the number of orders. There is also a live station every week, ranging from a Raclette Cheese station to a Roast Beef carving station.

So why Senso? If you want a Prosecco Brunch with a strong focus on Italian food, this is the place to be. They have a huge selection of Italian antipasti such as cold cuts, carpaccio, caprese and lots more. The ambience is also very nice as the restaurant is housed in a cosy heritage shop house. In fact this unique location is one of the reasons Senso has been on my radar for so many years.

River Wok at Robertson Quay–Surprisingly good IndoChina food in a predominantly Western food enclave

Who knew that one would be able to find a restaurant focussing on food from Indochina in the heart of Robertson Quay, and a very good one at that? Newly opened River Wok offers flavours from countries like Laos, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. The menu is a reflection of Executive Chef Kantha Chookiat’s travels and extensive cooking experience in the region. Chef Chookiat grew up in Chiang Mai, Thailand and has over 30 years of culinary experience.

Audace at Wanderlust Hotel– Fine dining in a fun dining way!

[Media Invite]

Did you know you can get Michelin star quality food in the heart of Little India? Opened since May 2017, Audace, short for “Audacity” is helmed by Chef Jeremy Gillon, who led L’Epicurien in the French Alps to receive its first ever Michelin star in 2015. He has also worked for numerous famed restaurants in France, including 2 Michelin Star restaurants Alexandre in Garons and Le Chabichou in Courchevel. But it’s not a prim and proper restaurant that you will find in Audace, instead, the atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The food however is what you would associate with fine-dining restaurants.

One thing you should look out for when you dine at Audace is Chef Jeremy’s use of alpine herbs in his cooking. The wild herbs are collected and dried before being brought into Singapore where the nuances of each herb is brought out by turning them into syrups, vinegars, candying, frying or simply being used as garnish.

Audace Sunday Brunch

I was at Audace recently to check out their Sunday Brunch set menu. For $68++ you are served 6 appetisers, 5 main courses & sides and 5 desserts (single person portion)! That’s a lot of variety of food! If you want some “fine-dining” food in a “fun dining” setting, you might just want to check out Audace. Depending on the number of diners you have at the table, the food will be portioned out accordingly. Scroll down to read more about my favourite dishes! The menu changes frequently so you may not get the same dishes I did, but the style and substance would probably be similar.
