This is my first time to this restaurant, located on the top floor of OUE Building.
The restaurant serves 3 different cuisine types under 1 roof: Japanese, French and Chinese. But I was here for drinks, instead of the food. I headed for the open-air terrace outside.
I was impressed by the view. What greeted me was a great view of the Marina Bay, with the Marina Bay Sands Hotel on the opposite side of the bay. The panaromic view stretches from Beach Road to the left to Marina Bay Financial Centre to the right.
But I also needed a drink, and so I ordered...
Here are the highlights of the cocktails I had:
- Baby Sumo: $25. Yamazaki 12 years infused with sour plums, fresh lemon juice, egg white and Sirop de canne. Dry shaken and served on the rocks. This rocks! One of my favourite for the night. Its easy to drink and what I like was the plum flavoured salt that they lined on the edge of the glass, just like a margarita. Lovely!
- Woof Woof: $25. Sweet Wee Scallywag (Speyside Malt), Dubbonet Rouge, fresh mint and Grapefruit. I find this drink rather fruity. Personally I prefer stronger drinks, which followed after this.
- Get Smokey: $23. Black Jamaisan 12 year old rum, Campari, la Quintinye Rouge with a dash of grapefruit bitters and Peychaud’s Bitters. Woodchips add the smokey flavour and dried citrus added for flavour. This was served in a nice glass flask, which you pour into a glass with a piece of dried orange. The flavour reminds me of Oolong tea. Easy to drink.
- Wiggo: $23. Plymouth Navy Strength shaken with fresh lemon juice, Sirop de Canne, fresh mint and lime wedges. Served in an Absinthe rinsed glass and topped with Chapuy Brut. This was good. Served in a martini glass, I liked the lemon favour and finished this in no time.
This is a great place to chill, with friendly service staffs who always display a smile even when there are lots of customers when I was there.
