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 ($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 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).

Oenotheque by Wine Universe

http://www.smugourmetclub.com/articles/oenotheque-by-wine-universe/

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.

Worst tapas experience

With recent rave of tapas and recent trip from europe, I decide to relive tapas in a "best tatler resturant 2012".

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.

Nice chill-out place

My girlfriend and I happen to chance upon Wine Universe yesterday as we were leaving Millenia Walk for Suntec. It sits at the corner facing Conrad hotel and was slightly hidden unless like us, you chance upon it.

We already had dinner so we decided to go for something light with our wines. We tried the sauteed prawns in pan. The prawns were juicy and served with garlic bread. I'm a huge fan of prawns so this dish really made my day.

I also had the German sausages which were cut nicely into bite sizes. I didn't really like the sauerkraut but the mash was really different from the ones you get from Western food places. The waiter told me it was made with milk which explains the creaminess.

The best part is the ambience. It wasn't noisy and they have cosy couches where you can just lay back and relax. The place isn't dark or too brightly-lit so it's comfortable for the eyes as well. It’s a nice place to go for chill out dates or just hang out with friends.

Hi Spasticles,



Thank you for your comment. I'm glad that you enjoyed the prawns and German sausages. Personally, I think the mash is lovely too.



It was a pleasure having you at Oenotheque. I look forward to seeing you again soon. Do bring your girlfriend and more friends along to try more of the tapas items.



Cheers,

My first...and last time

What should I say?! It's one of those places where you only go once!

I ordered the grilled octopus salad and it was very unpleasant. The octopus was not tasty at all and the salad was drenched with mayo look alike salad dressing. I left half of it on the plate. My husband had the boulibaisse and it was quite tasty but nothing to wow you.

As for the main, I had the set lunch turkey. It was ok and was surprised to find the tin cranberry jelly cube rather than a home made cranberry sauce. My husband had the lamb and he said it was very average. We had 3 glasses of wine and 2 espresso and the bill was $180.00. I think for the quality of the food and the service, it was overpriced. Will we return? No, not when someone else is buying!

Dear Madam,



Thank you for your feedback on Oenotheque Restaurant. I am sorry to know that you did not enjoy your dining experience.



The dressing for the Octopus salad that you had is a house dressing made from mustard and white wine vinegar with a pinch of sugar and salt. I understand that it looks very similar to mayonnaise but differs greatly in taste. On behalf of the chef, I apologise that too much dressing was given.



The set lunch turkey is served with pear compote, not cranberry jelly. You might have mistaken it for cranberry cubes as the pear is poached in red wine thus giving it a reddish colour. The compote is made in-house by the kitchen staff using the freshest ingredients. Your dissatisfaction could have resulted from mistaking the pear compote for cranberry.



I believe your discontentment is a result of not having enough information of the menu to make a well-informed choice for your meal. Thus, I would like to invite you and your husband to return to the restaurant to dine in where a better explanation of the menu will be given. I would like to offer this complimentary meal in appreciation of your helpful feedback.



Oenotheque strives to serve our guests with the best food and service. It is regrettable that you did not enjoy the experience on your last visit. I sincerely hope that you will grant Oenotheque a second chance and we at Oenotheque look forward to having you dine in with us again.



Warm regards,



Arsyikin
