For a glimpse of the exquisite dishes that showcase the RWS Celebrity Chef's cuisine during the 9 days food safari, we embarked on a mini food safari visiting the restaurants for a 5 course set dinner. First stop was at L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon where we started with the cold appertizer, Le Crabe. The quintessential seasonal crab meat sandwiched on thin layers of turnip with sweet and sour vinaigrette was amazingly beautiful bursting with lovely flavours and textures.
During the 9 days RWS Food Affair from 14-22 September 2013, Joel Robuchon Restaurant has lined up a 10 course degustation menu at 450++ per person while sister restaurant L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon has a 6 course set menu at $180++ per person.
Our next stop brought us to Osia where we have the hot appetizer, Foie Gras with Beetroot, Rhubarb and Riberry. I enjoyed the crust on the foie gras while the sweetness of the beetroot, rhubarb and ribbery gave it a contrasting yet enjoying fruity flavour.
If you are a fan of Chef Douglas Tay's cuisine, Osia will be offering a 4 course set dinner menu at $130++ per person from 14-22 September 2013 during the 9 days RWS Food Affair.
Steamed New Zealand Cod Fish
Moving on to the next restaurant brought us to Forest where we had the Steamed New Zealand Cod Fish with Yuzu Mushroom Sauce. The cod fish was beautifully cooked and further enhanced by the yuzu mushroom sauce and mei cai (preserved mustard greens). A clean, light and refreshing contemporary Chinese cuisine with a twist but bursting with delightful flavours.
During the RWS Food Affair 2013, Forest will be introducing a 6 course set dinner menu at $148++ per person from 14 to 22 September 2013. On 21 September 2013 only, there will be a Master Class and 4 course set lunch at $160 nett per person. Limited to 16 seats only. Tangerine another restaurant Chef Sam Leong has opened at ESPA will be offering 3 course set lunch at $45++ per person and 4 course set dinner at $55++ per person. Limited to 40 seats each.
Kurobuta Pork Belly and Fried Octopus
Our final stop is at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora where we end our tour with a main and dessert. I could not help cleaning up the plate as every components on the plate was simply delicious. The kurobuta pork belly was beautifully cooked until fork tender. The fried octopus surprised me with its delectable texture.
During the promotion period, Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora will be offering a 5 course set dinner at $158++ per person.
Yuzu Mango Cremuex, Gula Melaka Streusel, Milky Lemongrass Sorbet
This was probably the most memorable dish for the day. The Yuzu Mango Cremuex, Gula Melaka Streusel, Milky Lemongrass Sorbet by Executive Pastry Chef Kenny Kong was the highlight for me. The dessert was like a dessert degustation on a plate. There were so many components on the plate that I felt like embarking on a dessert treasure hunt discovering the delicate and culinary skill behind each delish execution on the plate.
It is really exciting to see Resort World Sentosa (RWS) organising its first RWS Food Affair 2013. All participating restaurants have specially crafted a promotional menu celebrating the love of food in a 9 days event.
