Dinner at Ochre Italian Restaurant

Located in the very heart of Orchard / Somerset junction, Ochre Italian restaurant is a place to look out for. Classic Italian setting with white table cloths, elegant decor and good service, this place brings out the goodness in fine Italian dining.   My Duck Risotto arrived next. Being a risotto lover because I love arborio rice (the longish rice used to cook risottos), I absolutely enjoyed this dish. The gravy was creamy and flowed very smoothly with the rice. The duck meat was tender and absolutely tasty. The entire combination was just a treat for my tastebuds.   For more detailed information and photos, please visit: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2013/12/dinner-at-ochre-italian-orchard-central.html

Don't be fooled

The ambience and decor does nthe relate to the whole experience. Evening started with drinks and the waitress did not understand what a virgin mojito was. We proceeded to start dinner ordered pastas and a pizza and the food arrived in a disorderly fashion. startEd with a salad and it was just a couple without lettuce leaves and a hard boiled egg cut in half, some bits of croutons, 1 cherry tomato and some dried ham.  They continues to during on the pastas and we ordered 3 different pastas to try and each one was a absolute bland experience. Poor pasta poor seafood poor overall. Only thing that was acceptable was the pizza, we had the mushroom pizza and tho it wasn't the best pizza out there , but it was the only thing on the table that was finished.

Italian Delicacy in Singapore

It was an enjoyable dinner. We were told that the place quite crowded so we booked it before. Fortunately, when we were there, there is only my boyfriend and another group of family.

We choosed a 3 course meal and decided to order another pan of pizza.

The price is quite expensive but it's worthy for the food and ambience.

Must tries: Banana brulee and Angel Hair Cappelinie I also recommend this place for:
After Work, Anniversary, Business Dining, Corporate Events, Dinner, Fine Dining, Lunch, Romance/First Dates, Family Dinner I spent $100 per person. Must tries: Bacon Pumpkin Soup I also recommend this place for: After Work, Anniversary, Birthdays, Business Dining, Children/Family, Dinner, Fine Dining, Graduation, High Tea, Night Out, Private Dining, Quiet, Romance/First Date

Italian Delicacy at Singapore


My boyfriend and I went there for celebrating our 6 monthsary and my birthday, it was an enjoyable dinner.

We choose their 3 course meal and a pan of pizza.

At that time it happen the place quite empty and in fact only 2 groups (us and another family)

We liked all the dishes specially Angel Hair and Parmigiana. For the dessert we tried Banana Brulee which so amazing.
The price is quite expensive but it's worthy for the food and ambience.

I spent $100 per person. Must tries: Granchio I also recommend this place for: After Work, Anniversary, Birthdays, Business Dining, Corporate Events, Dinner, Fine Dining, Lunch, Romance/First Date

Nice Food & Ambience @ Ochre at Orchard Central on 25Feb2013

Read my full reviews & photos at = http://chefquak.wordpress.com/2013/04/19/nice-food-ambience-ochre-at-orchard-central-on-25feb2013/

a friend close to me now resident at Cupertino California with his family came calling and a few of us arranged to have a quiet 5pax dinner.  I had an expiring 50% discount voucher from Kitchen Language which owns Ochre, Salta, Kumo etc so decided to do dinner at Ochre @ Orchard Central.  Ochre has a nice dining setting & ambience. It was one of the restaurants that had earlier offered palate discounts so I frequented it quite a few times then. The food was good for the price after palate discounts and as Ochre does not charge service, I used to provide the equivalent 10% in tip to the waiting staff. For this evening, we had 7 dishes- 1. antipasti platter 2. beef carpaccio 3.seafood linguine 4. meat-eater pizza 5. sous vide beef cheeks & kurobuta pork 6. osobucco on a bed of risotto 7. funghi risotto using UOB Kitchen Language 50% discount voucher, we paid S$124nett for 7 dishes for 5pax, so its just S$25nett pax, truly great value for such food quality & ambience.  the anitpasti was good & substantial – with buffalo mozzarella, parma ham with rock melon, smoked salmon with caviar, artichoke. olives & cherry tomatoes with feta cheese. the beef carpaccio with rockets & parmesan shavings was also good.  the seafood linguine though was really average. the meat-eater pizza was again very average (pizza not my thing but currently I like quatro fromage (4-cheese) pizza after trying a very good one some time back at Alfresco Gusto)- which is not saying so good for an Italian joint to have very average pizza & pasta..well, can’t have everything cheap & good I guess.. the duo sous vide beef cheek & kurobuta pork was quite ok, and actually my friends quite liked this savoury dish. the osobucco was the usual good for osobucco in most italian joints, but the bed of risotto not good – not creamy & “pang” (fragrant”) as it should be. clearly they were not good at risotto as the next dish – a funghi risotto which like a vongole dish should define good risotto & pasta dishes – was mushy & not fragrant, again below par! The restaurant was maybe 40% full on a Monday night & we had a good quiet table though likely not for the other diners as we were laughing quite a bit & quite noisy.  after dinner we moved to the lobby level and had a nice cuppa to continue our chat.
