Singapore has always been one of my favourite cities to visit. Their fine dining scene, is comparable in both food quality and service as to any other Western country. This time round, I was in Singapore for a very short visit, mainly to eat good food actually. As I am currently in the states, my posts will not be as often as they use to be, nor will they be as long.
Gunther's fly in fine ingredients from all around the world every day. On that day that I visited, there was a quarter of an alaskan king crab left, kobe beef, french lobster, white asparagus, bamboo clam from Scotland, oyster and scallops.
This dish was more Japanese than French. Anyway, this was the amuse bouche served that night. Apparently, its the same every day.
The beef was superbly executed. The thin slices of beef were so soft, and the mix of egg and sauce on that crisp was simply divine. I must admit, this has to be one of the best raw beef dishes I've eaten in a long time.
This is one of Gunther's specialty. According to one of my friend, you might as well not have gone to Gunther's if you didn't order this dish. The pasta was seasoned with truffle oil and chives and topped with Oscietra cavier. It certainly did lived up to its reputation.
The black pig has to be shared between 2 people.The pork was surprisingly tender. It was a very good piece of pork.
The apple tart wasn't like any other I've eaten. The pastry was surprisingly crispy. It has to be one of the better tarts I've eaten.
All in all, Gunther's certainly lived up to expectation. Food there was top notch. I will certainly want to come back one day. Until then, time to hunt for breakfast.
