Post-Invited Tasting Revisit

For the full review, please see http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com

We returned for a revisit, unfortunately, right dab smack in the middle of Restaurant Week, so the restaurant was swarming with diners. Even so, the food was still excellent. Service, however, suffered due to the full-house, because the kitchen was consequently (but somewhat understandably so) overwhelmed. There was an inordinate gap between the courses that left our stomachs growling and us filling up on bread. Notwithstanding the long lag-times between courses, the wait staff were still very much engaging, genuine, witty and friendly.

One great thing about this out-of-the-way locale is the complimentary valet parking. Even if you don't drive, the staff here are very happy to call for a cab for you so you don't have to lift a finger after dinner.

We ordered the same stuff sampled at the invited tasting, and all were very well-received. Of particlar note were the Salmon Carparccio, Beef Short Ribs and Tiramisu. All are must-trys and should not be missed.

Had dinner with a US colleague last night. Have not been to Alkaff Mansion for a while, but really pleased to find the place had remained nice and cosy as I recalled. The ambience was great !
 The food was okay, but could have been much better. The waiters did not caution us that the portions were huge and we over-ordered - and couldn't finish our food. The special dish of the day, a linguine snow crab was great. My colleague had the branzino and he said it was nice though there were too many bones - much more than he had expected. My main course, tiger prawns was bad - the prawns were not fresh (heads were disjointed from the body and the prawn meat was soggy & soft). I told the waiter that when he came back to collect my unfinished food - but he just looked at me and said nothing at all. It was rather disappointing - I didn't expect any refund, but he could have acknowledged the feedback at least ?!

This little gem is worth a visit especially the cosy little garden. The ambience is great for fine dinning setting and the service was excellent. The suckling pig tasted very nice and you should give it a try if you are a suckling pig lover. A different style from chinese version. The lobster bisque has a very strong lobster taste for my liking. Overall I'll definitely be back again to try other dishes.

Alkaff Mansion goes Sardinian

I've loved Alkaff Mansion ever since I laid my eyes upon this gorgeous site of architecture. The fact that it also houses one of Singapore's best restaurants is just an added incentive to visit. So it was with great excitement that I discovered that Sardinian Chef Simone Depalmas, formally from Sopra Cocina had been invited to head up their kitchen. Not only is Simone a very amicable and humble Chef, he's also a very good one! Sardinia, an Island halfway between Italy and Tunisia is a source of wonderful cuisine - Italian delicacies with slight Maghreb twist. And of course, expect A LOT OF SEAFOOD! If the idea of the perfect meal involved a plethora of fresh fish - both cooked and raw - with endless sides of fresh, fragrant salads and veggies, accompanied by delectable wine, then Sardinian cuisine is something you can get your chops around easily.

This is a place to be if you need to sweep your date off her feet. The best place for romantic ambiance and fine dining. However, the food and service falls short of expectation (maybe because the ambiance already sets you in the mood to expect the best). Overall, this place guarantees a memorable dining experience.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
