Food Review: Arty Farty Dining Experience @ Museo

(Casual Fine Dining at Museo)

A Singapore Mom Blogger goes food tasting at MuseoI am instantly wowed by the magnificent view of the marina & luxurious yachts even before setting foot into the restaurant.

Tucked in the highly prestigious area of Quayside Isle on Sentosa Island…. Museo (pronounced as Moo-Zay-O) promises gastronomic treats exquisitely presented with a contemporary twist.

And as true to it’s name, Museo which means museum in Italian, brings great viewing pleasure of fine exhibits by well-renowned art masters, all displayed in an elegant and refined settings.

A Singapore Mom Blogger goes food tasting at MuseoWe were honestly spoilt for choices when being presented the cocktail menu, which comprises a range of 30 concocted cocktails!

This includes 10 exclusive brand new creations, as well as 10 classic cocktails, updated with a twist. And most interestingly, 10 dietary healthy cocktails where tea is infused with alcohol as well as other organic and healthy elements.

A Singapore Mom Blogger goes food tasting at Museo I had the Breakfast Martini. {$21} (tall skinny glass on the right) Which is basically made up of London dry gin, blood orange marmalade, citrus and a float of champagne. This is inspired by the modern classic Breakfast Martini,by Salvatore Calabrese in 2000. The tart flavors of the marmalade is soften by the champagne. If I knew breakfast was this happening, I wouldn’t mind waking up early everyday. Or perhaps even better…. Have all day breakfast!

Kitson had the Montenegro Sour. {$21} (the fat glass with pretty heart shaped orange garnish) Which is made up of Montenegro amaro, dolin, fresh pineapple & citrus. The dark caramel like nature of Montenegro amaro blended with the brighter dawn-esque sweetness of dolin rouge form the perfect base, Which the pineapple and citus pit their strength in flavor.

We were just darn curious over the fancy names these cocktails were presented with, so  we decided to have another one; Kopi-o. {$16}

A local perk-me-up drink in its traditional outfit. A combination of Cariel Two-Vanilla Vodka and freshly brewed espresso floes silk-like across a tired palate subtly bittersweet.

We rubbed our tummies with glee, waiting for the next surprise to unfold.

We had the Creamy Asparagus Soup with roasted bacon and herbs {$12} for starters. This creamy earthy vegetable soup hit in the right comfort spot. And as for the bacon, I love anything with bacon on it!! Oh-So-nice!!

Next up was the Mezzanine Signature.

Diners were given free rein in customizing their own unique set by choosing 4 out of the 12 Mezzanines available for only $39. Or for the less adventurous, Museo offers the Mezzanine Signatures for $38, which includes an exquisite selection of 4 crowd-pleasers infused with local flavors.

We had the Joy of life {$12} (Smoked Roast Pork Belly served with hot sauce), The Kiss {$12} (Barbequed Squid with Chilli and Peppers), Matisse’s Gold {$12} (Deep fried Silver Fish served with hot sauce) and The Great Wave {$10} (Tuna Tataki) for our Mezzanine Signature set.

All I could say was, the small portioning has it left me craving for more! What a teaser!!

There was a strange resemblance to Singapore’s Signature Dish; the chilli crab. But, this however was less spicy. And the clever use of soft shell crab also meant that there was no need for fine diners to get their hands dirty in the process of savoring this yummy dish.

Back to serious food business.

For Enterees, I ordered Sliced Beef with Mushroom “Zurich Style” Served with pan-roasted rosti potato. {$28}

I didn’t care much for the beef since it was overwhelmed by mushroom and mushroom sauce.
However, I do love the creamy wild mushrooms and pan-roasted rosti potato.

Kitson on the other hand ordered River Prawns and Linguine. {$28} Baked prawn with cheese and herbs served with Aglio Olio linguine.

He quietly finished up in record time. So I supposed it must have aced a distinction from well traveled food critic.

We have a love hate relationships with desserts.
We love our desserts
but yet understand that
we shouldn’t indulge ourselves too much since the sensitive topic of age is catching up.

But, like always, the mind is willing but the soul is weak!
We over did dessert AGAIN!

A Singapore Mom Blogger goes food tasting at MuseoI was so predictable that Kitson instantly knew what I was going to order.That is precisely what happens when you are married for 10 years!

The Green Tea Creme Brulee served with Gelato {$12} of course!

The BEST I ever had. And even comparable to the ones I had in Italy!

The small portioning has left us craving for more.
Highly Recommended!

Eton Mess. {$12} Strawberry and peach marinated with lemon juice and rum, plus a generous portion of whipping cream.

Refreshing dessert.
But, I wasn’t sure if I liked the rum.

A Singapore Mom Blogger goes food tasting at MuseoThe mastermind behind all these wonderful creation; Chef Yip.
Coincidentally, he is from Ipoh!!
I’ve come across plenty of good chefs from Ipoh on my gastronomic adventure!

I would rank Museo highly on its ambience.A Singapore Mom Blogger goes food tasting at Museo Perfect retreat for city dwellers
