Have not been back to this restaurant for 3 years. Not sure why to be honest, as I remembered it as a more than pleasant experience.

Decided to hop by for lunch a few days back and was way impressed by the value and selection for their set lunch (around $35, u pick ur own starter, main and dessert, coffee/tea).

What a wondeful experience it turned out to be. The staff were efficient, polite and well knowledged (the restaurant was full). I ordered the foi gras with citrus, sea bass with truffle sauce and sticky date pudding while my client ordered the slow roast pork belly as main.

Every dish was a star in their own right and the presentation was well executed. Special mentions go to the sea bass and pork belly! The pork belly was one of the best I have tried in a long time (so tender, juicy with crackling skin) and the sea bass was fresh, juicy and went very well with the truffle sauce. A nice glass of Chablis completed the blissful lunch.

Stepped into Ember without any greeting and for a moment I thought I was in a fish market. The place was rowdy, the opposite of what I had expected. When we got seated, the staff gave us the menu and placed the utensils in such a haste. Strike one.
 Here’s what we ordered (3-course set lunch @ $28++):


Mesclun Salad w prawns: Very ordinary. Something I could have whipped up in 10min

Pan-seared Foie Gras : Decent

Duck Confit: Decent. I don’t wish to compare but Saveur does it better.

Stockyard Sirloin: It came with what looked like overcooked/burnt mushrooms on top of my steak. Strike two. Besides that, everything else was average. Steak was done according to my request so I’ll let this go.

Deconstructed cheesecake: Taste was one note, didn’t like it that much. Thought it was missing that lemony flavour. Looks wise it was very pretty but honestly taste matters more to me.

Peach Clafoutis w vanilla ice cream: $28++ for set lunch isn’t expensive but for a fine place like Ember with raving reviews, you wouldn’t expect them to have canned peaches in their food. It just cheapens the entire dish. Vanilla ice cream tasted like Magnolia’s.

Overall, very average food for $28++ and service was abysmal. There was a fruit fly hovering around my table the whole time before it got stuck to my fork. And fruit flies are usually a sign of a dirty environment. Strike three.
