Following the success of Bread Street Kitchen at London and Hong Kong, celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay opened his successful London concept restaurant in Singapore last year. Located at the Shoppes (Marina Bay Sands, this expansion for the Gordon Ramsay Group features a lovley industrial design and no one knows it better than the Hedgehog.
I am honoured to have Janet, the owner of The Hedgehog knows as guest author to share her experience of Bread Street Kitchen when she reviewed the restaurant a couple of months back. Here is what the Hedgehog has to say:
Food Review: Bread Street Kitchen Set Lunch by Gordon Ramsay (Marina Bay Sands)
We enjoyed the pork belly and fish & chips at Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay a few months back (see review here ) and were really excited to learn that it had recently launched its weekday set lunch. We finally found time to try it earlier this week and have to say that we really wowed by their desserts. Read on to find out what to expect!
Choose between a 2-course set at $40++ or 3-course set at $48++. We ordered two 3-course sets… coz we love desserts! And well, it’s also definitely more value-for-money for sure. 🙂
1) Hamachi tartar. cucumber, mouli, ginger dressing
The Hamachi was fresh and its texture was moist, soft and supple with a subtle tinge of sourish flavours.
2) Ham mock terrine with piccalilli, grilled sourdough
The pork terrine was wonderful too and went well with the crispy sourdough and the yellow sourish achar-tasting vegetables which provided a nice contrast to the heavier and meatier-tasting pork terrine.
1) Smoked haddock and salmon fish cake, herb mayo, mixed leaf salad
The fish cake tasted similar to the fish and chips we had earlier tried in their ala carte menu. Even the sauce tasted too familiar to that of the fish and chips and I can’t help feeling that sense of déjà vu. Nevertheless, it was still worth a try. I much prefer the crab cakes from Lawry’s and Morton’s though.
2) Veal and mushroom pie with wholegrain mustard, tarragon sauce
The veal and mushroom pie had a very strong taste and wasn’t very outstanding. Nevertheless. it may still appeal to individuals who like veal.
1) Blueberry bakewell tart with creme fraiche ice-cream
This blueberry tart really deserves a special mention. It is certainly one of the best I have ever eaten. The crust was crunchy and chewy, baked to perfection and the blueberries just made the tart a whole lot more appealing. The pastry chef deserves a raise!
2) Pistachio creme brûlée, dark chocolate sorbet
The creme brûlée was awesome as well. Together with the chocolate sorbet, it was just pure orgasmic bliss.
3. Chocolate fondant with salted caramel and mint chocolate chip ice cream ($20++)
This was an extra from the ala carte menu. The chocolate fondant was dense and warm on the inside and decadent without being too sweet. The mint ice cream certainly provides a nice accompaniment too!
Overall, Bread Street Kitchen has some hits and misses (or maybe my standards are unreasonably high) but as cliché as it sounds, one man’s meat is another’s poison. Having tasted most of the items on the menu, the standouts are the pork belly, fish and chips, blueberry tart and chocolate fondant. Give them a try too and let us know your comments! 🙂
Value for money: 7/10
