Resorts World Sentosa


B1 of Resorts World


I admit that I’m such a ”mountain tortoise ” as this is my first time visit Resorts World Sentosa. Well, I’m just lazy to travel all the way to Resorts World without a cause ( waste time and $).

Since today (13/2/2100) is the last day for the Sentosa Flowers 2011 & Mum was pretty much excited about the hype and adored admiring flowers, I suggested bringing her Resorts World .

It’s killing two birds with one stone! I could dine @ Osia ( which I badly wanted to try since its opening) & Mum could enjoy looking at the lovely flowers .

Osia


Osia won the Singapore best new restaurant, honoured in Singapore’s Best Restaurant Guide 2011 by Singapore Tatler and Best New Restaurant by CNNGo’s Best Eats awards 2010 .

 

 

Famous Australian Celebrity Chef Scott Webster with Chef de Cuisine Douglas Tay created a unique dining menu with combination of Asian and Western influences.

Do try the  signature dishes include the Espuma of Papaya ‘Iced Brick’, Seafood Ice Experience, Duo of Tasmanian Milk Fed Lamb, and Valrhona Hot Chocolate Soup and the highly recomended Polenta crumbed Foie gras .

 

 

Menu

 


Set lunch menu


I did not expect them to serve set lunch even on Weekends ! Quite often , restaurants offer weekday set lunch/ dinner and ala carte on weekends . A 2/3 course set lunch priced at $28++ and $38++ respectively is certainly worth the money. They do include the Foie gras in the starters and the much raved Valrhona hot Chocolate soup in the set.

Ala-carte menu


* We are not adventurous enough to try the’‘ ceviche” which were raw fish marinated and cured and the ‘‘Seafood Experience’‘ served in little centrifuge tubes with ice and partially poached seafood.

* Mum was skeptical about raw food due to hygiene and food contamination.


Stone hearth flatbread (garlic butter) $9++


They do not offer free bread here & instead you could order a freshly baked stone hearth flatbread to curb your craving for bread or simply nibble it before the proper meal.

Garlic butter flatbread, extra virgin olive oil dip, french butter & tomato basil evoo


The bread smells fragrant and was crusty on the outside and soft in the inside. It was delicious even without any dips, butter or evoo…..simplicity . Crispy garlic flakes and cheese lightly sprinkled on top of the bread made me craved for more. Quite often, the free bread served in restaurants were either cold, dry , hard or tasteless which I normally skipped but I would gladly pay $9++ for this stonehearth bread!.

Osia Mesclun salad

 


My mandatory mesclun salad to start the meal proper. The salad leaves were crisp but I felt there were slightly too generous with the sea-salt , resulting a salty-after taste.

 

 

Polenta crumbed Foie gras

*Sorry for the blur image *

A piece of ”smaller than your palm size” foie gras was served but certainly we enjoyed that. The foie gras had a slight crisp outer layer which is sort of caramelised . The inner was soft and curd-like, which reminds me of eating soy bean curd. A small piece of bread was served by the side which I thought it serve no purpose at all.

Crystal bay banana prawn ($26++)

We had a crystal bay banana prawn to share and from the name itself, I assumed that the prawn was wrapped with banana & deep-fried or have something related to bananas.

But…. I was wrong.

The prawns were lightly-pan-seared , served with olives , tomato salsa with a pumpkin puree which was smooth and creamy.

The prawns were fresh but slightly on the salty side.

I couldn’t figure out what the 2 cubes served by the sides were. It has a curd-like texture… erm… was it cheese ???

 

 

Barramundi, Roquette potato mash, Tangy vegetables

The fish was fresh and a crisp skin.

However, the ‘‘tangy vegetables’‘ which was cubes of zucchini and capers was tangy at all.

Overall, it was simple and light.

 

Corn-fed chicken breast

 


Mum had the corn-fed chicken breast which we had no other choices but to have it as a main course. The two other choices were the beef and risotto which she is no a fan of both.

Well, the old lady prefer chicken leg/thigh /wing than the breast part which was supposedly to be dry and tough in texture.

It was just average. The meat has a slight QQ texture but still failed to win her over.

 

We skipped desserts.

 

Verdict: I felt that Osia tend to rely a little heavily on salt which I personally prefer a lighter flavours. Some dishes stood out —- polenta crumbed foie gras and the stone hearth flatbread. The dishes is the set are simple and can be easily be prepared at home. Well, I would probably head back again to try the seafood experience or ceviche before giving my opinion further.
