Crowning the newly opened Citadines Connect City Centre Hotel located in the heart of Orchard Road is Edition Rooftop Bar & Restaurant, which spans over 3,000 sq ft and boasts an al fresco garden seating in addition to its indoor setting. A full-fledged restaurant by day, and contemporary, über chic gastrobar from sundown, patrons of Edition can enjoy a delightful brunch, savour updated local and international culinary creations or revel in a wide curation of signature and popular cocktails, fine wines and spirits of exceptional quality from the Breakfast Edition and Daily Edition (lunch and dinner) menus.

Edition's Cioppino 4/5

Kickstart the meal with the Edition's starter - the Edition's Cioppino ($18) is made with white wine, tomato seafood broth, clams, prawns, basil and parsley. The hearty seafood broth was packed with rich flavours and natural fresh sweetness from the seafood.

Charred Broccoli 4/5

The Charred Broccoli ($12) may look like a simple dish, but it was executed perfectly with crunchy yet soft broccoli, garlic aioli, and kailan puree, complete with parmesan and shredded seaweed to elevate its flavours.

Not Your Ordinary Ham & Cheese 4/5

The Not Your Ordinary Ham & Cheese ($22) was indeed not so ordinary, with crispy grilled sourdough, miso mustard, country-style ham, serrano ham, and melted brie. It is an intensified rendition of the classic ham & cheese sandwich. We enjoyed the cheesy goodness a lot.

Catalonian's Pick 3.8/5

The Catalonian's Pick ($18) comes with grilled tiger prawns, romesco sauce, pickled red chilli, fried shallots and sesame seaweed. The prawns leaned towards the bland side, which is tasteless. I will advise diners to thoroughly coat them in the romesco sauce for a lift in flavours.

Senor Pork 4.2/5

The Edition's mains consist of dishes such as the Senor Pork ($42), which features perfectly grilled Spanish Iberico pork shoulder paired with rhubarb chutney, roasted pumpkin puree, burnt butter cream, and a side of crispy grilled baby cabbage. The pork shoulder was superbly tender and succulent, and I liked that the pumpkin puree and burnt butter cream lent a nice sweetness to the savoury dish.

  1. The burger was quite decent.
    The Nasi Lemak/Chicken Rendang was not good. The Satay had an odd after taste!

    The al fresco garden seating is very limited with round bar tables and super uncomfortable chairs. Not suited for dinner....maybe for drinks.

    Service levels though were good.
    We ordered the Satay, Burger and a couple of desserts (Burnet cheese cake). The burger was good but the Satay and cheese cake was very sad.
    However, the staff were very courteous.
