Despite what the name suggests, Oenotheque by Wine Universe has not just wine, but very, very good food. .....
A shining example of this is the Salmon and Crab in Omelette Skin </strong>($22). Refreshing with a very good balance of flavours - saltiness from the caviar (exploding balls of taste), cream from the avocado and creme fraiche, and soft, fresh cold crab and mayonnaise in the middle. Very nice… And as we are at Wine Universe, pair it up with some Chardonnay.
Also well worth ordering is the Maine Lobster Salad ($32) and the delicious <strong>Foie Gras Terrine ($24) served with brioche and some carpaccio sliced figs.
Moving on to the mains, I have found the fish dishes to be pleasant but a little unexciting. Much more however can be said about the meat, particurarly the Veal Tenderloin ($45) and the Fondue sets ($32). My two favourites however were the...

A newcomer to the vibrant Restaurant Week scene, Oenotheque by Wine Universe awes with its stunning repertoire of dishes and impeccable wine pairings in its recent Media trail. Located on the ground floor of Millenia Walk, Oenotheque is a large restaurant, elegant and sleek in tones of black and white, with large floor-to-ceiling glass windows separating their indoor and alfresco tables. Despite being of Swiss origins, the restaurant serves up dishes Modern French cuisine, with Italian, and slight Asian influences.
The Twice-cooked Baby Octopus, Avocado, and Toasted Sesame Salad that followed bore very distinct Asian flavours, that I thought was a pleasant – albeit confusing – surprise. Marinated with what must surely be something of a mix of garlic, ginger, and perhaps soy sauce, the baby octopus was aromatic and delightfully chewy. The occasional chunks of avocado were, of course, very much welcome amidst crisp salad leaves and a little dab of sweet balsamic glaze on the side.

European waiter unable to advise what sort of farm cheese platter with response-" what's from kitchen". Served with 3 smallest and thinnest slice of brie, blue & orangey parmesan and few pieces of apricot worth $32.
Tiger (index size) prawn over-soaked in oil with flake of garlic and chili
Coldest rock hard bun and garlic toast that crumbled like biscuit with each bite.
