Spanish Crystal Bread Tomato

Burrata & Heirloom Tomatoes

The brunch experience kicks off with a selection of signature appetisers served tableside. Among the highlights is the 48 Months Iberico Ham paired with Spanish Crystal Bread spread, evoking fond memories of Spanish adventures with each bite. The Burrata & Heirloom Tomatoes delight with their creamy texture and vibrant flavours, complemented by arugula, fennel compote, and candied walnuts drizzled in basil oil and balsamic vinegar.

For seafood enthusiasts, the Hamachi Tiradito presents Japanese yellowtail lightly flavoured in a refreshing mandarin & truffle ponzu sauce, garnished with crispy quinoa and garlic chips. Meanwhile, the Amelie Fine de Claire Oyster N3 offers a delightful briny indulgence, elevated with bloody Mary foam and wafu sauce.

Chicken Siew Mai

Prawn Har Gow

After relishing the four delectable appetisers served tableside, I eagerly made my way to the expansive buffet spread. My first stop? The dim sum section, where tempting offerings awaited. Among the array of choices, the Siew Mai and Har Gow stood out as timeless classics. The Siew Mai, with its succulent filling encased in a thin, translucent wrapper, offered a delightful balance of savoury flavours. Meanwhile, the Har Gow, showcasing plump shrimp enveloped in a delicate yet resilient casing, provided a burst of freshness with every bite.

Grilled Catch of The Day

The Grill section at Mosella's Saturday Brunch is an absolute must-visit for any discerning food enthusiast. Here, culinary delights are expertly crafted and fired to perfection on the Josper Grill, promising a symphony of flavours and textures that are sure to tantalise the taste buds. Among the array of offerings, the Grilled Catch of The Day takes centre stage, showcasing the freshest seafood expertly cooked over the open flame. Each bite reveals a succulent and perfectly grilled fillet, bursting with the natural flavours of the ocean. The Cochinillo - Spanish Suckling Pig, is a true delight for those craving a taste of Spain — tender and flavourful, with a crispy skin that crackles with each bite.

Not to be overlooked are the Grilled Chicken Thigh Skewer and New Zealand Lamb Chop, each offering its own unique flavour profiles and textures. Whether you're a fan of tender, succulent chicken or prefer the robust flavour of lamb, these dishes are sure to satisfy you.

Salmon Wellington

Black Angus Beef Tenderloin


For meat lovers seeking the pinnacle of indulgence, the carving station at Mosella's Saturday Brunch beckons with its tantalising offerings of Salmon Wellington and Black Angus Beef Tenderloin. It promises a feast of unparalleled enjoyment, crafted with precision and finesse to delight even the most discerning palates. The Salmon Wellington is true artistry, whereby succulent salmon fillets are enveloped in a flaky puff pastry crust, creating a symphony of textures with each bite. The richness of the salmon is complemented by the buttery pastry, resulting in a dish that is both comforting and sophisticated. Meanwhile, the Black Angus Beef Tenderloin takes centre stage as the epitome of indulgence. This premium cut of beef is renowned for its exceptional tenderness and flavour, and at Mosella, it is expertly prepared to perfection. Each slice reveals a juicy and succulent interior, bursting with the rich flavours of perfectly grilled beef.

Kashmiri Lamb Ragon Josh, Palak Paneer, Mee Goreng Mamak

The Indian section beckons with an array of aromatic and flavorful delights that transport diners to the vibrant streets of India. From hearty curries to tantalising grilled meats, each dish is a celebration of rich spices and bold flavours that promise to tantalise the taste buds and evoke a sense of culinary bliss. One standout dish from the Indian section is the Kashmiri Lamb Rogan Josh, a classic North Indian curry known for its robust flavours and tender meat. Slow-cooked to perfection, the succulent lamb melts in the mouth while the fragrant spices infuse every bite with warmth and depth of flavour. The Palak Paneer offers a delightful combination of creamy spinach and soft, homemade paneer cheese for vegetarians. The dish is a true comfort food, with the earthy flavours of spinach complementing the subtle tanginess of the paneer, creating a harmony of textures and tastes that is simply irresistible. Lastly, the Mee Goreng Mamak offered a tantalising fusion of Indian and Malay flavours, with stir-fried noodles tossed in a fragrant spice blend and served with a medley of fresh vegetables and succulent pieces of meat. Each bite is a symphony of flavours, with hints of spice and sweetness dancing on the palate.


The pasta section stands out as a beloved station among diners. It offers a delightful array of freshly prepared pasta dishes cooked to order, ensuring optimal freshness and flavour in every bite. With an enticing selection of pasta varieties and accompanying sauces, this station promises a plate of deliciousness that caters to every palate.

Whether you prefer rich and indulgent chocolate desserts or light and refreshing fruit-based treats, there will surely be something to satisfy your sweet cravings.

Tiffin Room x Meatsmith Little India @ Raffles Hotel - Exclusive Collaboration Showcasing North Indian Flavours With Indian-Accented American Barbecue

Tiffin 1

It is a collaboration you should not miss. Tiffin Room and Meatsmith Little India are back again for the second time, with a specially curated four-hands menu from 14 to 28 July 2022. It guarantees you a treat by marrying Chef Kuldeep Negi's expertise in authentic North Indian flavours with Chef Edwin Tan's experimental take on modern Indian-accented American barbecue. You will see their skilful play on flavours, textures and spices come through distinctly right from the starters to the dessert.

Tiffin 2

The four-hand menu is available at Tiffin Room in Raffles Hotel for lunch and dinner. There are both Vegetarian ($98/pax) and Non-vegetarian ($108/pax) options, with the choice to add on for wine pairing ($78/pax).

Tiffin 3
Trio Starter 4/5

We had a delightful start to the meal with this trio starter - Papadum with Ikura and Creme Fraiche, Smoked Feta with Watermelon, Potato and Cheese Croquettes with Caviar and BBQ Mustard. Meatsmith’s Ikura Papadum has always been a crowd favourite. Pop it in a mouthful, and you get an explosion of briny ikura with rich and tangy creme fraiche on a crisp papadum.

Tiffin 4
Smoked King Salmon with Garden Tomato and Roquefort Salad 4.5/5

A pity that the Smoked King Salmon with Garden Tomato and Roquefort Salad was only available on the collaboration’s opening night of 14 July 2022. It made such a lasting impression! The lightly smoked cured salmon was of just the right level of saltiness, matched with fun bursts of flavours from the sweet oranges and tomatoes, as well as the sharper creamy blue cheese. Salmon was tender and flaky.

Tiffin 5
Hokkaido Scallop with Tandoori Black Cod 4.8/5

The Hokkaido Scallop with Tandoori Black Cod is a combined creation by both chefs. The plump seared scallop sits with a mildly sweet smoked carrot and orange purée, white wine reduction and caviar, paired with an aromatic and perfectly spiced Tandoori black cod. I thoroughly enjoyed how the seemingly different elements worked harmoniously together as a dish.

Tiffin 6
Signature Tiffin Box 4.2/5

For mains, a selection of North Indian dishes is presented in Tiffin Room's Signature Tiffin Box. Accompanying the fluffy and fragrant Jhinga Dum Biryani are three types of curries: Lamb Awadhi Korma (Lamb Chop Curry with Almond and Cashew Nut Gravy), Murgh Hara Pyaz (Boneless Chicken Leg with Spring Onion and Spinach Gravy) and Goan Fish Curry. Our favourite was the Goan Fish Curry, which features fresh red snapper. You can also enjoy the curries with three types of Naan: Garlic, Butter and Cranberry Cheese with sweet bits of cranberry encased within.

Tiffin 7
S’mores Tart and Smoked Coconut Ice Cream 4.2/5

I didn't think I would be a fan of this S'mores Tart because of how sinfully sweet it looks. Hence I was very pleasantly surprised to be proven otherwise. The torched marshmallow layer lends a little more sweetness to the decadent and smooth bittersweet chocolate base, paired with a scoop of cleverly well-smoked coconut ice cream and coconut flakes.

Tiffin 8
Anjeer Mawa Burfi and Pista Balushahi

We ended the meal with two classic Indian handmade sweets from Tiffin Room, the Anjeer Mawa Burfi and Pista Balushahi.

Tiffin 9
Papadum, Mint Chutney, Mango Chutney, Pickled Onion

Apart from the main dishes, you can snack on crunchy Papadum on the side. It’s served with three dips - Mint Chutney, Mango Chutney and Pickled Onion.

OUMI @ CapitaSpring - New Contemporary Japanese Kappo Cuisine At The Top Of Level 51


Located on level 51 of CapitaSpring is Oumi, the newest Japanese restaurant serving contemporary Japanese Kappo cuisine. It shares the same space with Kaarla, a contemporary Australian restaurant and bar.

Momotaro Cheese 4.5/5

We started our dinner with the Momotaro Cheese ($20) whereby miso cheeses are sandwiched between slices of Momotaro tomatoes. The sweet and savoury combination worked harmoniously on the palate, while the nori rice puff topping provided the extra textural enjoyment.

Kabocha Uni Tofu 4.8/5

A beautiful dish that is both pleasing to the palate and sight is the Kabocha Uni Tofu ($30). The housemade silky smooth pumpkin tofu is accentuated by sea urchin's topping, dressed in lovely shiitake tsuyu

Nasu Dengaku 4.2/5

I felt that the Nasu Dengaku ($20) may not be everyone's cup of tea due to the egg plant's slimy texture that has been grilled over binchotan with nori white miso and chopped into chunks and garnished with deep-fried golden buckwheat, deep-fried sakura ebi, hojiso (shiso) flowers and cat whiskers from the 1-Arden Food Forest. However, I enjoyed the dish for its complex play of textures and flavours coupled with smokiness from the grilling.

Gyutan Yaki 4.8/5

The thinly sliced Gyutan Yaki ($35), seasoned lightly with salt and pepper is grilled over binchotan for a delightful crunchy finish. The serving of shio negi complemented and freshen up the appreciation of the tender beef tongue.

Foie Gras Monaka 4.5/5

The dishes at Oumi are very beautifully presented. Take for example the Foie Gras Monaka ($15/pc) which is not only appetising in sight, but bright in taste profile too. The delicious foie gras ganache is piped into the light and crispy wafer, topped with Japanese salmon roe, Japanese flying fish roe, chrysanthemum petals, kombu-pickled daikon, wasabi, edible flowers and leaves from the 1-Arden Food Forest.

Tempura Crepe 5/5

Another beautiful dish on the menu is the Tempura Crepe ($25 for 2pc). I personally felt it can be one of their signature must try items. The cheesy crepe is topped with Australian scampi roe, Japanese flying fish roe, avocado slices, Ao-togarashi yoghurt, deep-fried sakura ebi, balsamic-teriyaki sauce, hojiso flowers and chrysanthemum petals. It is another multi-sensational dish with a delightful play of flavours and textures.

Kohitsuji Yaki 4.8/5

The Kohitsuji Yaki ($70) is another item on the menu that I enjoyed a lot. The juicy and tender Australian lamb chop is coated with finely chopped lemon myrite and lemon balm, served with Japanese sweet potato puree, fresh calamansi and garnished with edible flowers from the 1-Arden Food Forest.

Buta Kakuni 4.5/5

The Buta Kakuni ($60) reminds me of Okinawa cuisine which has Chinese influence. The wobbly and melted in the mouth braised pork belly has a hint of tang from the orange peel, served with grilled eringii mushrooms, fame flower, fresh egg yolk, mountain caviar, wasabi, edible flowers and leaves.

Awabi 4/5

The exquisite Awabi ($50), fresh live Australia abalone is salt-baked on the teppan. Once cooked, it is sliced and served on its shell, together with the innards topping and chipped wasabrina.

Wagyu 4.5/5

The Wagyu ($30 per serving) with fill you up at Oumi with the luxurious Kagashma A5 wagyu sirloin on top of Akita Komachi sushi rice, topped with an onsen egg yolk, Ao-Togarashi Yoghurt, Japanese leeks, lemon balm and served with freshly grated wasabi.

Kyoho Sorbet 4/5

To wrap up our dinner, we had the Kyoho Sorbet ($20) paired with warabi mochi and black sesame praline. A light and delicious dessert to end the dinner on a sweet note.

Tiffin Room @ Raffles Hotel Singapore - Celebrates Diwali With A Specially Curated Diwali Experience Menu


From 21 October to 7 November 2021, Raffles Hotel Singapore’s historic Tiffin Room welcomes you to join in their celebration of Diwali, the joyous festival of lights, with a specially curated Diwali Experience menu prepared by award-winning Chef Kuldeep Negi.

Golgappa Shots 4/5

The Diwali Experience begins with a classic cold appetiser of Golgappa Shots - deep-fried stuffed crispy bread complemented with three different fillings - mint, mango with sweet tamarind and yoghurt to evoke the nostalgia and celebratory spirit of the season. It is recommended to start with a little fiery Mint, followed by Mango with Sweet Tamarind, which is sour and ends the journey with sweet yoghurt. Spicy, sour, sweet and savoury, these little flavour bombs are indeed a great way to whet my appetite.

Tandoori Lobster 3/5

Next is a warm appetiser Tandoori Lobster, featuring Tandoori-grilled lobster served with onion fritters and mint chutney. While its flavour was good, especially with the smokey charred bits around the edges of the lobster, I found mine a little over-seasoned and overdone.
Main Course 4.5/5

Butter Naan. Carom Seed Laccha Parantha

The main courses are prepared and presented in the iconic tiffin box - Nariyali Gosht Chaap (lamb chops with rich coconut and mustard seed curry); Doi Mach (barramundi with yoghurt and spices); Sarson Da Murgh (boneless chicken leg presented in a mustard leaf gravy); and Kheema Pulao (premium Indian basmati rice cooked with minced lamb and perfumed with rose water and saffron). Freshly-made Butter Naan and aromatic Carom Seed Laccha Parantha will also be served to sop up the goodness of the curries.

Nariyali Gosht Chaap

Both the mustard seed curry and yoghurt curry were highly flavoursome and stimulating. The piquant and robust mustard seed curry balanced and complemented the gamey nature of lamp chops well.

Doi Mach

Whereas for a more delicated Barramundi, the tangy and sharp yoghurt curry brought out the meat's sweetness.

Sarson Da Murgh

Sarson Da Murgh reminds me of Palak Paneer. I genuinely enjoy this dark mustard leaf gravy that I didn't have the chance to try anywhere else.

Kheema Pulao

Last but not least, the Kheema Pulao. Perfumed with rose water and saffron, the Indian basmati rice was cooked with just the right amount of minced lamb to flavour the rice without overpowering it.

Petha Kheer with Mango Rabdi, Kaju Strawberry Burfi, Moong Dal Burfi 4.8/5

Rounding out the meal were sweet treats in which we had Petha Kheer with Mango Rabdi and two Mithai - a Kaju Strawberry Burfi and a Moong Dal Burfi. Served elegantly in a glassware, Petha Kheer layered with Mango Rabdi. The ash gourd with mango in a milk and saffron cream pudding itself was sweet and comforting. I like how the tartness of the layer of mango rabdi underneath balances the sweetness of the dessert. As for the Mithai, handmade speciality sweets of cashew nut and yellow lentil were among the finest I have tried. Best to have alongside a cup of Masala tea for a complete experience. Suppose you wish to spread the joy with your family and friends. In that case, the Mithais are available in a Mithai gift box containing handcrafted sweets in five delightful flavours.


The Diwali Experience will be available for lunch and dinner in both non-vegetarian ($98++ per guest) and vegetarian ($88++ per guest) options from 21 October to 7 November 2021. In addition, the Mithai gift box is available for takeaway and delivery via from now until 7 November at S$58+ for a box of 15 pieces in an assortment of five lovely flavours, including Churma Ladoo, Katli Aam, Moong Dal Burfi, Pista Paan and Kaju Strawberry Burfi. Orders of 100 boxes and above will enjoy a special rate of S$48+ per box.
