It's kind of strange & sad to see all the bad press this place has been getting from various diners. I've been going to Dada pretty much since they first opened & right from the get go, it has been good. Yes, they are not cheap but then again, if you dine out regularly in S'pore, really, what place is? At least, for me personally, having been to Dada more than 6 times now, I always go home happy (admittedly, that might have something to do with the wine!) & well-fed, regardless of what I ate & have never ever gotten sick. As for vacuum packed food, uh...maybe it was sous vide? People really should do their homework before judging & potentially ruining reputations. My only complaint for now is perhaps the fluctuating prices of wine. When they first opened, the options were limited to 3 and all were expensive. At some point, the prices were lowered & you could get a bottle for $65, which I think is reasonable (by S'pore standards). Now the lowest priced bottle of Humilitat (same wine as Esquina, incidentally) is $90, which can be prohibitive if you like to drink. It will be interesting to see if Bomba will lure customers away with their excellent fare, no service charge & cheaper old world wines. Something to think about perhaps Foodbar Dada people?
