(only half of my review is here due to the word limit)

Previously, I have tried Jaan’s set lunch and was begging for more (who wouldn’t?). Our anniversary was the perfect excuse to revisit for Jaan’s degustation dinner. Limited seats are assigned to diners who wish to use the Amex Platinum card promotion (50% for 2 pax), hence we queued for 3 months for our table.
There are 4 set dinner selections available: 5, 7 or 10 course, and a 5 course vegetarian menu. I was apprehensive to try the mysterious 10 course set, because there was no description of the food on the menu (yes, it’s meant for the chef to surprise your palate). After some deliberation, we decided on the 10 course set, Menu Epicure ($298). Because I don’t eat raw meat or foie gras, some of my dishes were changed to accommodate these dietary requirements.

Amuse Bouche at Jaan is delightfully extravagant. I’ve dined at quite a number of fine dining restaurants and so far none of them have matched up to this number and standard of creative small bites.

Beetroot macaron with Cervelle de canut, a sour cheese spread from Lyon
Smoked Eel on Black Sesame Sponge
Cantal cheese on Walnut Cracker
Lentil HummusCereals tuiles


Wild Mushroom Tea, cep sabayon, buckwheat and walnuts. Intense flavour, aromatic and smooth soup that cannot be missed!

Mention-worthy are the breads at Jaan. Brioche had a rich onion flavour and flaked beautifully, while the mini baguette had a nice crisp crust. Accompanied with French bordier butter for that extra punch. I had to stop Hubby from having more bread as we have yet to start our first course!

Each course was excellent, exquisite, and elegantly plated. It’s the little details that make the difference, we really could not fault anything.

Langoustine Tartare, accentuated with grapefruit and mint.
Heirloom Carrot Composition, served on a chilled stone plate, is an interesting play of textures and natural flavours of nature’s goodness. It’s essentially walnuts, chervil, mustard with walnut paste, mustard seed and mint sorbet.

Zucchini “trumbetta”Burrata ArtigianaTomato collectionNicoise olive, glittered with pops of Golden caviar. So tasty even a vege-hater would love this. The tomatoes were amazing! They literally disintegrate in the mouth.

The invigorating aroma of rosemary flooded our senses. Ah… my favourite egg in the world is on its way. Making a theatrical entrance, the 55′ Rosemary Smoked Organic Egg is nothing short of awesome. Cooked with scientific precision at 64 °C for 55 minutes, the translucent silky egg was tipped into a bowl of chorizo, rattes potato and buckwheat.

Oh, how apt! Jaan’s Garden turned up on a tree trunk. Buried under spring vegetables, morels and sweetbread, lies thin slices of savoury ham.

Reached word limit, full review is on the the blog.

ee my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.com/2014/06/18/another-fabulous-degustation-dinner-jaan-on-16jun2014/

had another wonderful degustation par excellence at jaan on 16.6.2014. 
regretfully jaan is fully booked or the rest of the year for feed-at-raffles (FAR) discounts. looks like only mikuni & occasionally equinox & prego to go to.
the new amuse bouche of beetroot macaron, an eel mousse, (can’t remember the last) plus the rye cracker was good, pleasant & quite fine, though no better than previous.
the second amuse bouche, a ceps mushroom tea, was the best soup ever, so intense & flavourful & lingering. 
#1 the ocean seafood composition was simply delicious! every item was excellent & there were so many – langoustine, oyster (yummy!), scallop, ikura (salmon roe), eel, caviar, another prawn. i could have this again! 
not quite sure what the toast do? anyway a good toast.
#2 the zucchini trumbetta was nice, pleasant, refreshing, not quite a standout among so many excellent dishes.
#3 the 64degC 55mins sous vide egg with iberico chorizo was quite a complete dining experience with the dry ice foam flowing down. the silky egg yolk added texture combination to the crispy iberico chorizo.
#4 the foie gras preparation/presentation had changed several times but texture wise quite the change. the inside is soft tender tasty. the outside though was different from the more caramelised preparation which we preferred.
#5 monk fish was pretty good – firm, bouncy. meat was slightly sweet. somehow all the monkfish i tried in singapore (& this was a better one) could not match the excellent sweet tasting monkfish ala plancha i had in barcelona’s bouqueria market & tapas restaurants. white asparagus was very good, very tasty & tender. 
#6 the hay roasted pigeon was as usual, nothing less than superb. the medium rare sous vide breast was the best. i couldn’t quite decide if amsterdam beulings’ quail was better or this. 
the best dinner we had at jaan though was on 20.1.2014 where we had miyazaki beef in place of pigeon.
#7 choconuts was supposed to offer different temperature, texture & taste. i supposed it did & its a good dessert, but i thought some of the previous choconuts editions were distinctly better.
the petit four were good or competent for this level of restaurant, not a standout.
well, looks like i have to try the waiting list & see my luck play out.

There is a great promotion via Amex that gives 1 for 1 dining for couples at the restaurants in The Fairmont and Swiss Hotel. Except the promotion is a Red Herring.
 
 I called Jaan to book for my Wedding anniversary and was told that the annual quota of Amex seats is already used up. Now if it were November I could understand, but it is only April, so something is fishy.
 
 Equally, the hotel staff were disinterested that the booking was from a regular guest of their restaurants, that it was a once in a lifetime special occasion and on a weekday. Their best proposal was to go and eat somewhere else or free valet parking!
 
 So - take with a pinch of salt what you read in the promotional material from Amex and/or the SwissHotel / The Fairmont.
