Exquisite 8-course Degustation Dinner @ Alma by Juan Amador Goodwood Park on 6Jun2018

4 snacks1 – musk melon

wife bought an exquisite 8-course degustation dinner for our belated anniversary celebrations on 6.6.2018. ^^

since Jaan was removed from amex love dining (Jaan was our favourite both under andre & subsequently julian royers), there were not so many places we go for degustation & omakase.

the best for me is hachi – both the omakase lunch & dinner. hachi omakase lunch much greater value at 1/2 the price of dinner.

the other place is cornerhouse, which we go few & far between for occasions like anniversary dinner 1.6.2016.^^ that was one of the best with very good quality of ingredients like lobster & tajiyama wagyu..

last year we had a late valentine dinner at summerhouse on 1.3.2017… chef florian ridder was formerly sous chef here at one-Michelin-starred alma. the S$128 10-course menu was good but not quite in the same league as what we had this evening…

4 snacks2 – potato, salted egg yoke

alma’s dishes were equally fine & more inventive c/w cornerhouse, and every snack & course dishes were delicious, wonderful combination of flavours.

4 snack3 -foie gras toast

4 snack4 – brie & truffle

we enjoyed all the 4 wonderful snacks…all delicious & a great start to the evening…

the umeshu ice was great too..

#2 chutoro, daikon, kimchi

chutoro very good, very sweet, nicely presented & excellent but i guess no better than a regular sashimi serving.

the celeriac tea was very good.

#6 yorkshire pork jowl

the yorkshire pork jowl itself seemed ordinary after so many tasty dishes.

#7 miyazaki A5 wagyu

the miyazaki A5 wagyu of course the best! (though hachi omakase lunch serving of 3 better quality ohmi wagyu was unmatchable)

#7 miyazaki A5 wagyu2

#8 rhubarb dessert

the dessert was served with a chocolate drawn anniversary greeting. 🙂
