SKIRT W Singapore – Sentosa Cove, 21 Ocean Way 6808 7278 | skirt.wsingaporesentosacove.com
The scene: Romantic and cool, this is one of Sentosa’s best restaurants, with an uber- trendy atmosphere and good food to boot.
The steak: There are many options to choose from, but the full blood wagyu Sher skirt steak ($79) served with a watercress and garlic confit is a firm favourite, and one of the signatures. The Cape Grim filet mignon ($88) on a green pea and bone marrow rösti oxtail dumpling with dried sea scallop is another must try; it was so tender the knife just slid right through it. The mains were perfectly paired with a smooth Italian Montepulciano Farnese from 2011 ($20 per glass).
The sides: The lobster, pork belly and truffle mac and cheese ($19) was rich and creamy, and the broccolini a la plancha ($11) cooked to perfection. I’m always a fan of gratin potatoes ($15), and these were the best.
The best of the rest: Don’t miss the starters! We tried almost all of them. The freshly baked foccacia with duck fat butter and smoked salt was light and fluffy, and served after ordering – so delicious, but we just had to try and save some room. The Sri Lankan crab and caviar ($32) served in a shellfish broth was my absolute favourite, along with the truffled beef tartare ($28) with crispy rice and chipotle dressing from the Saturday lunch menu. The bone marrow escargot ($45), and veal sweetbread and foie gras ($38) in a mushroom and red wine jus are also worth trying. We’d recommend pairing this menu with the Wittman 100 Hills Pinot Blanc ($20 per glass), and finishing with the sweet and yummy banana “pizza” ($18) with caramelised pistachios and vanilla bean ice cream – the perfect end to a lovely evening.
