Bridge @ Seah Street
More dining establishments are moving towards a healthier approach on the execution of their food and Bridge is one of them. Bridge aims to offer wholesome but hearty and satisfying food. The Pumkinoa ($16) is a colourful combination of organic quinoa, carrot vinaigrette, roasted rosemary pumpkin, pumpkin seeds and feta cheese. It is pleasing to the eyes and a nutritious option. I really liked the roasted pumpkin!
The Lobster - $36
Sandwiched in a crisp croissant are scrambled eggs, baby spinach, bacon and lobster(of course). The lobster croissant is accompanied by a mesclun salad drizzled with truffle honey vinaigrette. I think that the price point of this lobster roll is pretty steep and the entire croissant was a little on the dry side. I would have much preferred a simple lobster croissant with a great sauce and the scrambled eggs and bacon on the side. Lobster is an expensive ingredient and I feel that it should be presented in a way where its taste is enhanced and amplified, instead of dulling it with the likes of bacon and eggs.
62 Degree Celcius Egg - $19
Not just pleasing to the eyes, this dish is a myriad of flavours and ingredients that melded perfectly and it is bound to please your palate too. Atop a bed of truffle mash potato, we have sauteed wild mushrooms, parma ham and a sous vide egg. The dish is finally topped with slices of seasonal truffle. I love how flavourful everything was together and the truffle mash was very delightful.
Cow's Nightmare - $26
The colour of the beef stew was honestly, quite scary. We dug into it only to realise that the pieces of beef were hard and tough. We requested for a change and the second batch was extremely tender and delicious. Not quite sure what went wrong with the first but it was really quite good the second time around.
This was said to be a must-try here at Bridge. I was quite excited to try out the combination of smoked salmon with tobiko cream, mozzarella and corn salsa. The avocado scramble was somewhat a letdown as it was pretty bland. While I understand that it was to balance out the saltiness from the smoked salmon, I thought that the abundance of bland avocado was not of a healthy ratio to the smoked salmon. The blandness more than covered up the smoked salmon for me, or maybe I just took too huge a bite of the avocado scramble but I strongly feel that it could use some salt and a squeeze of lemon for more flavour.
Truffle Honey French Toast - $18
By now, you must have realised the presence of truffle in a great many of their dishes. I've tried their homemade truffle butter on my previous visit and I really loved it, especially with freshly baked sourdough. With a visual appeal this strong, I expected myself to fall in love with the toast. I was slightly disappointed with the toast as it a tad dry towards the middle. A scoop of Milk & Sea Salt icecream directly imported from Okinawa comes with the toast but it was too small a scoop for the entire platter of bread. While the icecream was yummy, it was quite icy. I didn't hate this, but I didn't love it either. It could definitely use a little tweaking.
All in all, I feel that the food at Bridge could use a little fine-tuning. I will definitely make a return for that 62 Degree Celcius Eggs though! The coffee here was also better than I had expected. Do share with me your experience at Bridge and if there's anything that I should have tried but missed out on!
