I visited Prive Restaurant a few years back, so we thought it was due another visit finally. The romantic Prive Grill Restaurant is nestled at a beautiful spot named 2 Keppel Bay Vista, Singapore 098382 and the number to dial is 6776 0777.
We debated whether to sit indoors and enjoy the cool-airconditioning, or to indulge in the exquisite alfresco dining here, allowing the breezes to cool our skin instead. The outdoors are tastefully furnished and each table is endorsed by Flos lamps to create a romantic ambience admist views of the sweeping marina and lush greenery.
Our Appetizer came aboard finally - something that was not in the menu, a special for the night - Soft Shell Crab with Wasabi Mayo (SGD$16.00). It was rather crispy, and the crab meat was freshly-sweet. The wasabi-mayo was a tad too sweet though, and there was no hint of wasabi's stinging piquance at all. Also, don't be fooled by the seemingly thick crab as shown in this photo - there was a rather thick layer of flour encrusting this delicacy.
My main course was the Seared Scallop Risoni - which came with smokey, springy scallops of sapid sumptuousness, tomatoes, basil, lobster broth and soft Orzo grains (barley-like texture). The lobster broth added the rich touch of seafood to the dish, and the entire pasta dish was rather good, though I still prefer risotto dishes.
The Beau's Main Course was the Pan-Roasted Duck Breast - served with Caramelized Endive and Butternut Pumpkin. The duck breast was very rather tender, and rather ambrosial in its taste. There was also a certain chewy-ness to certain parts that appeared somewhat raw / uncooked. We didnt know if it was a deliberate effort, but as ducks could be eaten with medium doneness, we continued eating. The sweet butternut pumpkin chunks were a sweet contrast to the savoury delicacy.
Prive cooks its meat on their special Spanish-imported Josper grill that leaves meat succulent yet not greasy nor dry, so this notion was much appreciated.
