Caffé B is the nouveau Italian fine dining restaurant and bar concept that marries the best of Italian tradition, style and cuisine with the soul and sensibilities of the Japanese culture. Caffé B offers premium quality and authentic modern Italian delicacies and exclusive, fine Italian wines.
I was invited back again to try their new lunch set, and I assure you that the following review is my honest opinion. This is not a paid advertorial. This is just one extremely satisfied diner.
The new three-course set lunch menu that is now available between 12pm to 3pm daily includes an appetizer, three main courses to choose from and a dessert at only $25 per pax. Prior to your courses being served, complimentary sliced Focaccia Bread will be brought to your table along with individual saucers of olive tapenade – a blended mix of black olive, anchovies and garlic. Slather some olive tapenade on the focaccia bread to curb those hunger pangs while you eagerly await the arrival of your hand-crafted dishes.
Choose between the Pepper-Crusted Tuna Salad and Soup of the Day as your appetizer. I would recommend going for the tuna which is perfectly pan-fried on the outside while the inside remains raw to retain its richness and tenderness. It is then coated with freshly cracked black pepper and togarashi (Japanese red chilli pepper).
<br> There are 3 mains to choose from: 1) Baked Chicken Breast with Aubergine Parmesan A big serving of chicken breast is first marinated in thyme and rosemary, then baked and lightly grilled to perfection and served with a side of tomato ragout and drenched with a delicious orange butter sauce. 2) Gratinated King Prawn This is hands-down one of the best prawns I have ever had and it was my favorite out of the entire lunch set. An entire king prawn is sliced from the top and generously filled up with luscious hollandaise sauce and gratinated under high heat, and served alongside mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables and crispy parmesan cheese 3) Smoked Cheese Risotto The Smoked Cheese Risotto is cooked al dente in a scrumptious vegetable broth with garden vegetables and tossed with smoked cheese. <br> The lunch ends with Eiibun Pudding – a dessert unique to only Caffé B. It is a refreshing combination of green tea pudding in mango rice parisian, dripping with mango cream sauce and a few tiny chunks of mango. This delightful dessert will satisfy your sweet tooth and round off your lunch perfectly. <br> Read the full review here for more detailed descriptions and photos: http://freshgrads.sg/articles/lifestyle/food/2460-caffe-b-s-indulgent-delicious-and-affordable-set-lunch-is-absolutely-bang-for-your-buck
After reading e review i was unsure to try or not to try the food!!! Some say good n some commented bad so i decided to give a try on last sun dinner!!! We have a dinner set and a ala carte Filetto Flambe!!! The steak is gd n i forgotten to take a pix on how the sauce was cooked by one of the staff that attended to us!!! His service was awesome but i forgotten to ask his name.... The dinner set was pretty reasonable for a 4 course meal!!!!
I was invited to taste their new 5-course dinner set menu and was blown away by all the fine details; the attention they pay in the presentation of the dishes, how well the dishes were created so that every single ingredient amplifies the rest, the impeccable service, the classy and romantic ambience, and of course, how value for money the whole set was. It was only $65 per pax for a spectacular night of fine-dining.
Before the 5 courses were served, complimentary Foccacia bread was brought to the table and served with butter and live tapenade on the side. It is good enough to keep those hunger pangs away while we eagerly anticipated our courses.
The first was a refreshing spoonful of salad called Amuse Bouche, crafted with a tangy marinate, crackers, mushrooms and fresh greens.
The second course was the antipasto which was delectable smoked salmon with capers, cornichon and nashi pears. Great for whetting your appetite.
The third course is the soup of the day, which unfortunately was not offered to me.
The fourth course is the main, in which you can select from three options: Risotto simmered in vegetable stock, Oven-Roasted Lamb Rack or Chicken Picatta.
While the risotto was awesome, light, buttery, and the chicke picatta juicy and flavorful with its tomato cream sauce, the one that took my breath away was the oven-roasted lamb rack. The Oven-Roasted Lamb Rack is lovingly marinated overnight with honey mustard then cooked and laid seductively over a fluffy pile of mashed pumpkin, served with chilled mint jelly, and drizzled with its own lamb juices. Take a bite of a piece of lamb together with the pumpkin mousse, honey mustard and chilled mint jelly for a heavenly explosion of pure ecstasy on your tastebuds. The combination of the tender, juicy lamb, cooked medium-rare as recommended by the chef, with the subtly sweet pumpkin mousse collaborates with the refreshing sweetness of the mint jelly and the kick of the honey mustard to create the perfect symphony of flavors in this succulent dish.
We ended the night with a sweet chocolate mousse pastry that left us in high spirits.

Having been to Caffe B. a couple of years back and enjoyed myself tremendously with the palatable food, impeccable food and elegant settings, I decided it was time for a revisit - this time with *Charmaine for her birthday. The pillar with wine bottles still greets us at the door, and the interior is still as beautiful as ever.
For mains, we took the recommendation of Risotto "Singapore" (SGD$38.00) - chilli crab inspired risotto with giant scallops. The huge arborio grains were chewy and solid, giving the dish a wonderful bite. As for the chilli crab sauce, it was distinctive in flavor and crab's unique sweetness, but not too spicy - even *Charmaine who had sore throat was able to handle it well. The giant scallop was succulent and bouncy in its freshness, the perfect choice for this dish.
We also shared the Angel Hair Pasta (SGD$33.00) - consisting of capellini tossed with veal jus sauce, truffle oil, edamame and Hokkaido pan-seared scallop. Imagine springy pasta infused with the rich flavor of veal jus and truffle oil - a very tasteful combination. The juicy scallop and crunchy edamame completed the dish; it was tempting to order another of this but of course we refrained.
Finally, we had dessert - Tiramisu (SGD$18.00) - the classic Tiramisu done a la Minute. They were so lovely to serve this as a complimentary dessert because we were celebrating *Charmaine's birthday. The Tiramisu was moist, soft and tasted distinctively of the sweetness of mascarpone cream as well as Amaretto infusing its spongy layers. It was very good, but I was a little saddened it was not the same Tiramisu I had 3 years back, with the biscuit fingers.
