sinfona omakase lunch menu

sinfona S$58pax omakase lunch menu

after the first serving of the menu dishes, one can make unlimited orders, then dessert. 🙂

chef simone from sardonia italy and hailed from alkaff mansion, lived in singapore for 8yrs & with sinfona from the start 3yrs ago..

3 appetizers were pretty good. we are liked the smoked duck breast best so we all reordered..smoked flavour was excellent & the fragrant crispy & thick layer of fat did not feel oily..

the blue foie gras tasted like pate..ok light & sweet..

the mozzarella cheese so so.

pumpkin soup competent not my favourite soup chong lee reordered..the anchovies added a salty flavourful twist so i should say better than usual pumpkin soup..

the sardinia uni fregola was tasty..i took the small uni to enjoy separately ..the mango, fregola itself & whole combination was tasty..not sure if cashew did anything..did add some texture..

the mains, however, were not great here..the beef cheek quite below par, texture ok sinewy not best taste was poor so chunky & beefy not tasty..turkey breast ok non descript..

best was the salmon..chong lee reordered ..commented it was chunky but it was pink & moist..the fregola & salmon something i can reordered but too full la for me.

ambience was victoria concert hall so many reservations for wedding & celebrations lunch dinner functions

owner jean foo a lawyer & niece of our 72yr old server who started working at 13.

it was a great lunch with a good friend.

OPS Bro WT bought 3pax Wanton Mee lunch @ Foong Kee & Ah Ma Chendol on 20Dec2019

my OPS bro WT bought 3pax wanton mee & roast duck rice @ foong kee at keong saik street on 20.12.2019.^^

very good wanton noodles, qq noodles and excellent chilli & sauce.

& roast duck one of the best,very fragrant & flavourful, excellent roast duck.

only thing is when i came back with my wife a few days later, the duck was not as nice…so it’s kind of not so consistent.

after foong kee, we walked to corner coffeeshop & took S$3 ah ma chendol..

HC thinks it was better thicker than four seasons chendol..anyway it was as good. ^^

Excellent Miyazaki A5 Wagyu Lunch Omakase just too expensive! @ Hachi on 18Dec2019

2pax jap wagyu omakase lunch with wife @ hachi on 18.12.2019.^^

excellent jap wagyu omakase as before just lots more expensive, like 50% more!

uni seaweed kakiage becomes hotate….cheaper ingredient still excellent preparation and nice dish.

large oyster sashimi

oyster with ponzu jelly

oyster with ponzu jelly good as before, fabulous for the eyes and delicious!

miyazaki A5 sukiyaki konabe still very good. tasty marbled wagyu, very nice!

sashimi is REALLY quite poor standard for this price of omakase! and c/w what was served previously…

we had a complimentary dish, i think it was hotaruika firely squid which was in season.

chargrilled miyazaki A5 wagyu was superb!

wagyu sushi best, just incredible!

overall standard still very very good. will come back some time..

we did go back a month back, but it was not as good and really expensive, oyster had shrunk, though the wagyu beef dishes were still excellent.

not so motivated to go back now…
