Delightful amuse bouche with cod as the star.
Inspired by our very own UNESCO World Heritage site, the pretty Botanic Garden ($26) is an ensemble of seasonal vegetables cooked in different ways. A secret dressing of olive oil, white onion, pommery mustard, and raspberry vinaigrette is then poured over, and an accompanying glass of lapsang souchong tea helps to enhance the smokiness of the flavours.
Now, the stunner was undoubtedly the Sanchoku Wagyu Beef ($68). The Australian wagyu striploin has a marbling score of 5.5. When it comes to good beef, just a dash of salt and pepper would usually do the beef justice. And that was indeed the case here. The wagyu is seasoned simply, and grilled in the Josper, before it is brushed with a gentle touch of beef jus, and served with charcoal grilled eggplant and tomatoes. The beef was absolutely beautiful. Succulent, juicy, and bursting with umami, every bite of the beef was a party in my mouth. While it was downright delish, I felt it was just a tad pricey for its portion.
While Tablescape sits on a busy street, the gorgeous restaurant, with its neo-classical interiors and soft cushy chairs in lovely colours, offers respite from busy afternoons and hectic work matters. I'm quite confident that you will like the ambience, the comfortable and plush seats, and the warm service. Do give their barrel-aged cocktails a go too!
Tablescape is currently offering an exclusive glamping picnic experience as well, and you should definitely check it out especially if you're planning a special occasion!
