B-bar at Bacchanalia

(For more review and photos, click here:http://mediumrareandothers.blogspot.com/2014/12/b-bar-bacchanalia-coleman-street.html)

Late night dinner! It's 10pm on a Saturday and we're ravenous, looking for somewhere to chomp before heading off to a party nearby. This's place we've been wanting to visit. It's situated in a pretty interesting place, at a Masonic Club's building. If you've been reading all that Masonic conspiracy theories and Illuminati (Yeah, we mean Free Masons and the sort), you'll probably feel quite intrigued about this place, and abit excited when you reach the front door, because the inside is totally separated from the outside world. But there's nothing chilly about this restaurant, rest assured. It's quite a sophisticated and beautiful place, in fact. The differences between B-bar and Bacchanalia's ala-carte menu, are the menu, prices, and the environment. Because the menu is more casual, to go with drinks, the prices are naturally lower. There are also a few dishes from the main menu too. As for the environment, so with drinks, you get velvet long sofas with low-tables, like those in a club. For the Bacchanalia's ala-carte menu, you get proper seats and tables. And they seemed pretty strict with seating. The lights are dimmer at the bar area, but because these two areas are just side by side, the bight lights vs. the dim lights create such a contrast. Service is how we'd expect from such a place, nothing to rave about. We ordered:
Have You Met Matt ($20)
Eisen Junmai Karakuchi Sake, Belvedere Vodka, Passion Fruit & Sancerre Cordial, Rhubarb Bitters Bacchanalia Burger ($25)
Bacchanalia beef patty, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, B - Bar fries
Thursday promotion at $25 for a burger and a beer Chicken Gnocchi ($34)
grilled chicken breast, vermouth emulsion, house-made gnocchi, grapefruit & red onion salad We wanted to order a Ivan's Tribute as it has some pretty interesting ingredients, like Edamame & Herb Emulsion in the concoction. But the friendly bartender took it upon to himself to tell us it was unavilable and to choose something else, so we chose Have You Met Matt ($20). Consisting of Eisen Junmai Karakuchi Sake, Belvedere Vodka, Passion Fruit & Sancerre Cordial, Rhubarb Bitters, it isn't too sweet or bitter, slightly sourish, but still an intresting dirnk noenetheless. Food, we got a Bacchanalia Burger ($25) which is great for a hungyr grown man before he indulges in drinks for the night. Well, the burger is as good as they claimed, which we are pretty glad about. The pre-cut fries are also not too oily, salted just nice. The juiciness of the patty is really good. Together with the marination, crispiness of the greens and other ingredients inside, well, we'd definitely be back for the burger. Our Chicken Gnocchi arrived next. As it was pretty dark...

I took the 5-course weekday menu and was really impressed. Loved the cauliflower gratin the best. The HD Scallops were great as well! Very fresh, juicy and was a burst of flavouring the mouth. Service was very professional, friendly and prompt as well. What I like best about the restaurant is that you can share - you don't have to be uptight about passing your dining partners a little chunk of something you're having :) Would definitely go back again to try other things on the menu.

I was there with a group for Restaurant Week dinner. The set came with bread, cauliflower gratin, HD scallops, chicken & yoghurt or cappelini & egg, and 'the chocolate cake'.  The cauliflower gratin and the chicken & yoghurt were excellent. The chicken was evenly cooked while maintaining its tenderness.

Then came the dessert, a major disappointment. Not only did it consist of a single grape-sized ice cream micro scoop, and dots of condiments, we were made to share what little there was. The waiter said that's just how the restaurant does it, you share dessert like you share bread. There's a first for everything, I suppose. Moreover, nowhere on the menu was there an indication that the tiny dessert must be shared. If I had gone by myself would the restaurant have made me share the dessert with a stranger? 

Since the restaurant was so stingy about dessert, which was mostly ice cream, they might as well have left it off the menu. This was my first time at the restaurant, and it will be difficult to return, all because of (a lack of) dessert.

Always an education

If you have dined here, you'll know they are serious about their food. In the kitchen, The Fat Duck alumni likes to turn classic dishes on their heads: the cauliflower gratin ($17) is a light white truffle and cheese foam-based dish with crunchy deep fried cauliflower and gremolata, and the tiramisu ($18) has a crunchy, fun, pop rocks base. The drinks are equally fun, and it's always an education at the bauble-lit bar area. Speaking of, The Educated Imbiber, the eighth installment of a series of interactive drinks workshops will be taking place On the 13th and 14th of August at 7pm ($125 per person). "Students" will be able to try six types of champagne and sparkling wines, and pairings of creative dishes.

Amazing flavours and textures with each dish! i loved the pork belly, calamari and pretty much all the desserts! The flavours are subtle and delicate and the chef is clever enough to use the ingredients to showcase its true potentials. We spent $110 per head with a glass of red wine. Very good dinner. We will be back soo
