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.
