Located at Teck Lim Road, Bistro Soori is a fusion restaurant with an exciting menu of dishes prepared with Asian ingredients using French cooking techniques.
Have not written a review for quite a while and this restaurant deserves a shinning review.
A great find nestled between the bustling Neil Rd (literally behind the bar Tantric for the pink crowd) and Keong Siak St in Chinatown! Cant believe it took me so long to come here! Helmed by the charming chef Jimmy Chok, Bistro Soori delivers quality, understated modern cuisine spiked with subtle Asian influence.
The decor is modern, clean and dominated by stark white finishing, with warm touches of wood and, black and white murals. The end of the restaurant opens to a calming view of a tropical patio which adds to the tranquility of the restaurant. A partial open kitchen concept completes the look.
Lets talk about the food! No doubt the star of the restaurant! Simple and elegant! For lunch, it was a set menu where one can choose one's course. We tried the buttered pumpkin with sage and the garlic prawns as starters. Both divine. The pumpkin was rich and the flavors wholesome. The garlic prawns was well executed and paired with rocket and balsamic reduction.
For mains, we had the beef tenderloin in lemongrass sauce and pork tenderloin in hoisin sauce. I must admit both sounds unexciting on writing. But when we have our first bite, we changed our minds. The beef was super tender and done to perfection. The lemongrass sauce was understated which allows the meat to shine! Simple and gorgeous! The pork tenderloin in hoisin sauce (sounds soooooooo boring i know!!!) was beautifully cooked. One of the most tender peice of pork I had in a long time!!! Simply paired with a hoisin accented sauce. Again, very subtle and complemented the pork perfectly. The dish was rounded off with vine-ripe cherry tomatoes!
The desert that deserves a mention is the warm brownie with vanilla ice cream! Once again, a boring sounding dish! But the inclusion of a heavenly salty caramel sauce got us ooohhhinh and ahhhing on first bite!
So, if u still have not given this place a go! Do so soon! I sure hated myself for not trying this one out earlier!
Located at Teck Lim Road, Bistro Soori serves an affordable 3-Course Set Brunch at $39 ($79 for free flow of Prosecco / House Red / House White).
The menu kicks off with a Confit of Portobello Mushroom, Spinach, Semi-Dried Tomato Mozzarella (ala carte $14) – a delicate and refined update from Caprese. Drizzled with balsamic vinegar, I taste the richness of the mushrooms as well as each of the subtly complementing elements.
A Brunch essential is this beautiful plate of poached egg atop of jumbo lump crab, english muffin, tomato, mesclun salad and doused with hollandaise sauce (ala carte $24 for 2). The blandness of the jumbo lump crab is relieved with the creamy hollandaise sauce.
I preferred the Pulled Pork Sandwich, Multigrain Toast, Arugula, Fries ($24) which served an umami-rich pork that enhances the flavour of this brunch dish.
I am wondering if the restaurants which HGW has online booking arrangement with are that quiet. I have this question in mind is simply because Bistro Soori is a very quiet place yet again. But we were pretty convinced with the reviews so went ahead and book it anyway. it's quite a no brainer that we went for the set brunch at $39++ cos ala carte is prcie is on a high side $12 for tomato soup and $14 for creme brulee. I personally liked the tomato soup and smoked salmon starter. Very refreshing. For mains, we are ok with what we have ordered. They arw delicious but didn't wow us. Overall dining experince was good cos wd enjoy little cafe/ restaurant like this.
