Autumn is coming
Lewin Terrace unveils a sumptuous, multi-course, seasonal spread that blends Japanese sensibilities and French techniques.
Available till November 30, reserve your slot at this acclaimed Japanese-French fine dining restaurant as Executive Chef Keisuke Matsumoto whips up a sumptuous Autumn-inspired spread.
Located amidst the lush and calm surrounding of Fort Canning Park, Lewin Terrace is unveiling an elegant 5- and 7-course menu rooted in the establishment’s produce-driven approach and a clear celebration of the season’s harvest.
We were blown away by Chef Matsumoto’s conceptualisation of the Wakon Yosai, a 7-course menu carefully designed to exude the contrasting experience of Autumn that blends Japanese sensibilities and French techniques.
Highlights of the course includes the Japaneseinspired hassun which starts off on a decadent note with the Japanese Sweet Potato Tarte—a reimagining of the potato tart; the Canadian Homard, of which billows of steam gives way to a luscious velouté of lobster bisque made from lobster head, konbu oil, ginger and a secret selection of spices; and the Nippon Rossini, an interpretation of the classic Tournedos Rossini featuring slices of Japanese Wagyu filet mignon rest on lily root purée, replacing the traditional mash potatoes with a lighter substitute. As for the rest, they are stand out creations in their own right.
Diners might also opt for an atlas of flavours with the 5-course Sho-Mi Autumn menu, featuring sophisticated dishes prepared by Chef de Cuisine Hiroyuki Shinkai. The starter Obsiblue Tartare starts off on a gentle note with the tomato consommé being jellified into a sphere and is perched at the top of the small pile of carefully sliced pomelo, shallots, cucumber, dragon fruit and kaki purée. Another conversation starter would be Chef Shinkai’s roast venison entrée. Sous vide to perfection, the dish is accompanied by al dente conchiglie, puréed green peas and a painstakingly intricate juniper berry sauce.
What Chef Matsumoto and Shinkai have achieved can only be described as a symphony of flavours to the tune of autumn. You just have to try it to believe it.
