Superb 7-course Korean Fusion Degustation by Chef Ace Tan at Stellar @ 1-Altitude on 12nov2020

had excellent 2pax dinner celebration at stellar @ 1-altitudet.

his a pop up by chef ace tan who helms 1-vu (pronounced one view) at outpost hotel sentosa..

outpost hotel is closed till jan2021 becos covid & chef ace tan has pop ups at various locations this month including at stellar which belongs to the same one group.

the view from stellar is stunning in daylight & when litted up in the darkness

chef tan’s dishes equally stunning..

korean fusion degustation

after the first dish of pen shaped shellfish (fan scallop) we asked to upgrade from 5-course to the 7-course menu

every dish was excellent!

superb F1 wagyu2

my favourite of all the great dishes = the F1 wagyu (1st gen cross between wagyu & angus) was simply amazing, marbled & beefy flavoured at same time.

korean wrap dish

the wrap dish was very interesting too. like a Vietnamese rice paper wrap…very tasty too. like it!

squid, pork, oyster umami sauce2

the iberico pork was very good (chef said korea not exporting jeju black pig yet)..

though the squid preparation cannot c/w galician octopus and the even better spanish grilled octopus..

tile fish, snow crab

amadai (tile fish) was superb too! & the sauce bestest!

chef ace tan expert in sauces..very good, umami!

abalone oyster porridge

& the abalone porridge so tasty especially the oyster flavours..actually it is oyster porridge with abalone slices..abalone great texture, sweet but not same tasty as chinese braised abalones..

maybe I can try improvise here..no need abalone or used can braised abalones ok ..the porridge itself already so tasty..

korean yuzu, nashi pear

the ginger tea jelly dessert was super very refreshing!

hope to try out ace chef tan’s other dishes at 1-vu outpost hotel when they teopennin jan2021.

Bad Breakfast @ Andaz Hotel on 10Nov2020

breakfast quite poor on 10nov2020.

had a great staycation at andaz.

superb dinner at 665deg & wonderful after dinner drinks at mr stork rooftop

hotel down to 1/2 staff & 1/2 capacity..

no breakfast buffet e-menu and servers delivered orders

laksa was well below average..not a good hawker laksa standard..gravy was ok..frozen crystal prawns below par c/w hawker fresh prawns..

dimsum very poor..har gow skin thick & doughy, siew mai ok, served with ketchap instead of hk dimsum chilli

egg cocotte was only 1/2 good dish..baked egg with cheese. egg, egg yoke & spinach good..

bacon & sausage cold & poor..probably taken from a buffet line in the kitchen 🤷‍♂️

croissants cold..smoked salmon & cold cuts not good.

breakfast to forget!

Delicious, Sumptuous 4pax Family Dinner @ 665 Andaz on 9Nov2020

excellent dinner at 665 at hotel andaz on 9nov2020.^^

we had the 5 course tasting menu..

dishes are more traditional but excellently executed & best ingredients 👏👏👏

baguette was nicely warm crisp & soft inside great with butter

amuse bouche of smoked salmon very light like cured..kind of underwhelming

seared hokkaido scallops very good tender & sweet..this of course many good standard restaurants can make

foie gras was a big serving with pear & brioche

the lobster bisque was par excellence..very intense, flavourful & smooth & the lobster bits were good too..

& the 110g A4 kagoshima wagyu was heavenly, superlative, perfectly charred, flavourful..

so the 665degF pira charcoal grill oven was really something!

& the dessert mille feuille superb too..

a truly wonderful dinner & evening 👍😀
