$42 for water

Overall, pretty good. Food was tasty & beautifully presented. Service was efficient & pleasant enough. What threw me off however was the fact that I eventually got charged $36++ for water that they conveniently kept pouring without asking & of course proceeded to charge. I usually don't quibble about price but if you charge $12++ for a small bottle of San Pellegrino, perhaps after the first bottle, you might want to ask the customer first? Was rather ironic that 3 bottles of water could have bought another set lunch almost. Rather sneaky on their part I thought. So, yes, go & eat, by all means. I think the chef is doing a good job in a nice place. Just ask for ice water perhaps? Unfortunate this. Because of this I don't think I'll go back for a long long while.

Looking for that place for a special occasion, I decided to pay a visit to The Corner House at Botanical Gardens. After many years, Les Amis Au Jardin may be gone, but The Corner House serves up a similar fine dining fare that pretty much targets the same market.

At a recent visit, I decided to go for the six course meal ($148) which has four starters, one main and a dessert.

For the starters, I tried the oyster. Served in a plastic oyster mould the fresh oyster was marinated in gelatin. Despite the rich sauce, it could not cover the slightly fishy after taste.

Another starter I had was the Carabinero Prawn (+$18). This thick slightly sweet Japanese prawn was paired with tomato and vinegar as well as a little "palette cleanser" in a tomato ice cream to finish.

For something lighter, go for the beetroot, a colourful dish of sweet (beetroot) and savory (small slices of saltwater eel).

Still on the starters there is the Maine Lobster (+$18), a chef favourite in which the lobster is placed on its own broth with risotto.

Moving on to the main course, I tried the Cod Fish with Fried Scales. Here, the scales of this fish was fried separately and then placed back on a slab of the fish. Unfortunately, I believe that the fish served was more of a seabass than a cod, mainly because its meat was really firm and lacked the fattiness.

Better was the Omi Beef (+$45) in which A5 wagyu is used from Japan. Really thick marbling in which two small slices is more than enough.

Finally for dessert, the chocolate tart topped with a gold leaf is really thick and would do well with chocolate lovers. Those looking for something more interesting would do well with the chef's rendition of kaya toast, which is a light kaya tasting ice cream coloured in cream wrapped in between two biscuits. Both desserts were good.

Overall, a nice experience, with good service to match. Ideal for that birthday and anniversary celebration in a slightly rustic environment.

I just wish that there will be new set menu every month so that I can enjoy lunch to the fullest

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
