 Jason Antherton is one of my favorite chef, who makes fine dining affordale. All his cuisines are nicely presented and taste good. Nothing heavy but makes us feel very delightful. It is free to access to the garden after eating here. Really worth the money!

I've been waiting to visit Pollen for some time and had recommendations from friends who sold me on the ambiance, cocktail menue and food.  Sadly, the service was so rude I almost thought they were joking around.  I'm from New Jersey where service people can be impatient, abrupt and direct but this took the cake. 
"Hi can I have a menu?" -- "over there lah"
I read the menu and ask "I'd like to order" -- "you go over there" pointing to the end of the counter.  I walk to the end of the counter where the same guy comes over and then tells me to stand somewhere else about 2 feet to my right.  I look around like there must be a hidden camera for the prank.
Place the order and ask if we can also have water. "Still or sparkling?" I say tap water will be fine. "Still or sparkling" I say just still tap water will be fine.  "Nine dolla."  
 1 cocktail, an appetizer, 2 glasses of still tap water served in a bottle, and $59 later I apologize to my guest for dissapoinment and we head to a hawker center for some TLC.  Thanks Pollen!

Celebrated my gf birthday with a dinner at the restaurant. The buggy service was pretty helpful to get diners to the restaurant. Pick up point is either MBS T3 or Visitor Centre. Located in Flower dome, the complimentary access in the dome is just another wonderful experience that we had. While waiting for your meal, you can walk around the cooling dome. 
 
 Wine will be served upon sitting at your table.(optional, if you are not wine drinkers, skip it). For starter, we wanted to order Carpaccio of Hokkaido scallops. Wanted it to be seared, but the kitchen recommended another scallops dish that they served during lunch which was cooked. I would say that is simply wonderful. Rich flavours
 
 For main, we ordered both Jasmine tea cured Norwegian salmon and Beef short rib. OMG. Both dishes taste heavenly. Norwegian salmon is cooked just right without being too raw or stiff. You can definitely taste mandarin orange and jasmine green tea being blended together perfectly.
 
 As for the Beef short rib, it will never go wrong if you choose to order that. No need to choose the "doneness" as the beef was stewed and the combination of peppercorns and the beef were marvellous.
 
 Lastly, the downside experience i had is the number of calls i had to make during dinner time in order for me to get through their line. Waiting time for the buggy and calls has to be improved.
 
 Nevertheless, we had an awesome experience with them. I personally like the part that you can walk around the dome while waiting for your food. (You know how long the food is served in a fine dining restaurant right. Hahaha)

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
