Don't Believe The Naysayers

I'm amazed at the negative or so-so reviews of Iggy's below. My wife and I went to Iggy's for our anniversary a couple of weeks ago and we were very much impressed. The degustation menu (I think it was 9 or 10 courses) was excellent and left us full at the end - not something you necessarily expect in a fine dining restaurant. The Asian twists and other surprises in the dishes were brilliantly executed and I overall could not find fault with the food we had. The waiters and the waitress who served us through the meal were also spot on - great attention to detail, service when we wanted it, but never hovering over us (something I hate). All washed down with a nice bottle of champagne. Any negatives? None really. It isn't cheap but it was in our opinion good value for money.

Underwhelmed!!!

My wife and I went there yeserday evening and I have to say we were underwhelmed! The ambience leaves much to be desired. There are two parts to the room - the one towards the entrance is comletely bare- just tables and chairs and absolutely nothing else. The chairs are some strange revolving cheap-ish contraptions which surprised us.

The food is good, no doubt. HAve I had better food? Definitely. Did we expect more? 100%. There were some surprises but nothing that I would write home about.

Dont waste your money! Its not worth it. Certainly my last time there.

Expected to be charmed but went home feeling meh

M was in town so I had an accomplice to satisfy my curiosity on much-raved-about Iggy’s. Named after its founder, award-winning Sommelier and restaurateur Ignatius Chan, Iggy’s is ranked 14 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014. We arrived with high expectations.

The entrance is somewhat like “Aladdin’s cave”. Upon entering, the staff welcomed us warmly. Service was attentive, without being over-zealous. I must commend that the staff were genuinely helpful. After ordering our set lunches ($65++ for 2 courses, $85++ for 3 courses and $105++ for 4 courses), my camera battery went flat *horrors*. Thankfully, the waitress found a charger and lead us to another table near a power point. 2 thumbs up!

The cooking-style is modern fusion. Flavours were subtle and never over-powering. Creative presentation, top-notch ingredients, but dishes lack an element of surprise. We came anticipating to be charmed but went home feeling “meh”. I mean… it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t mind blowing as I expected it to be. Sundried Tomato Foccacia and Wholemeal Sourdough

Chilled Gazpacho sorbet with Tomato Salad Amuse Bouche provided a much needed relief from the sweltering heat outdoors.

Wagyu beef appetizer with red bell pepper “pappardelle” and pomegranate.

M’s luxurious appetiser-generous portion of  Foie gras with artichoke, white asparagus and Alba Black truffle

For the second course, we both selected Iggy’s signature Cappellini with crunchy Sakura Ebi and Konbu. Tossed in Shellfish oil, each strand of pasta had an intense crustacean flavour.

For the mains, 70 °C Wagyu cheek with Pinot Noir and Hearts of palm fared much better compared to Pork Belly with Gobo, yam and kinkan. While the Waguy cheek main was flavoursome and melts in the mouth, the Pork Belly dish tasted flat and dull.

Inspired by Singapore’s popular breakfast , Iggy’s Kaya and Teh Tarik dessert is a creative spin on the well-loved staple. The soft brioche French toast had a beautifully caramelised exterior. Served with a thickened custard-textured kaya and bittersweet teh tarick ice cream. Lip smackingly yummy!

Vanilla ice cream on a bed of banana, served with Araguani chocolate, espresso, hazelnut. Not the most innovative dessert, but nevertheless satisfied my sweet-tooth

The waitress asked what coffee/tea would like to have, so we mistakenly assumed that hot beverage was part of the set lunch. The $10 tip I intended to give the waitress for her fantastic service went into paying for this exorbitantly priced small cup of Cappuccino ($11.70 after GST and service charge, pfft).

We were lukewarm towards the set lunch. Perhaps dinner will enchant? We’ll try, maybe, someday….

Agree on the poor quality waiters

Lamb was overcooked and sent it back politely, but the waitress who was non-local either (1) did not understand English well or (2) was not attentive, and got it cooked further. Imagine the horror when the dish returned. What was worse the waitress did not apologize and other waiters pretended nothing happened.  There is a reason why this restaurant fell off the list. Time for reflection.

Undoubtedly one of Singapore’s most well-known and highly regarded restaurants.

Undoubtedly one of Singapore’s most well-known and highly regarded restaurants. It’s a reliable option for quality fare that’s a unique blend of Japanese ingredients with European concepts, enhanced by professional service. The wine list is also outstanding, courtesy of owner and respected
