Set Contemporary Cuisine is one which was created from the heart. Once you walk in you will be amazed at the pure size of the place. Spanning 5 shop spaces, this is a place for groups definitely, yet couples or individuals who go will feel equally comfortable there.
Raymond, the manager, used to helm TAO which used to occupy the first floor of the same building. He is very confident that the concept still works as he had many returning regular customers.
The set menu has a very reasonable price to it (see end of post). We felt that for the setting and quality of food, the price was at a sweet spot.
Chef Starter - Baked Cheese
We were taught to place some of this on the perfectly toasted traditional bread and bite in. Simple delightful dish with the traditional feel. We simply adore it!
If we had the chance, we would want this dish available for breakfast and tea too!
Cold Dish - Salmon Garvlax
Cold Dish - Huai San Carpaccio
Soup - Mushroom Veloute with Peanut Butter
Soup - Double Boiled Herbal Chicken
Soup - Roasted Pumpkin with Truffle
Soup - Miso Soup with Sake
Main Course - Grilled Snapper with Salsa
The meat was fresh and you could tell from the way it slides off itself. The sauces and salsa indeed brought out the flavour of the snapper. The effort with the sea salt and red pepper were indeed thoughtful and artistically done. Plating was given equal efforts as the dish itself.
Main Course - Roasted Beef Tenderloin
The beef we ordered was medium rare. Have the meat with the black pepper sauce and a dash of the sea salt at the side and it is almost a perfect dish for this set. The black pepper sauce was the base which allows you to dab as much or as little as you like. A good thought to allow customers to decide how heavy they want their dish to be yet at the same time look presentable.
Main Course - Baby Pork Back Ribs
There's chicken as a choice to the mains too but we didn't get to taste that. We would recommend the fish, pork ribs and beef as they pack a great taste and are really value for money.
