Absinthe have both outdoor and indoor seating. Indoor seating has a nice cozy comfort feel and enjoy the coolness from the aircon. Outdoor seating gives a great view of boat quay and enjoy the natural breeze.
I was early for my reservation and called to bring forward my reservation. They have gladly accepted my request and seated me in their outdoor seating with a great view of the boat quay. The service staff are attentive and friendly.
As it is a restaurant week event, it is a fix set menu. It costs us $55 per pax.
We ordered the following:
~Ceviche of Hokkaido Scallops, Ponzu Dressing, Pear and Pomegranate~ The dish is decorated with a good balance of colors! The scallops were fresh!
~Creamy Lobster Bisque~ Doesn't it look like a white heart on a burst of orange background! Romance in the air!~ The lobster bisque is pretty fragrant and the aroma surrounds in the mouth! Yummy!
~Braised Wagyu Beef Cheeks in Red Wine, Creamy Mash and Green Beans~ Beef cheek is always one of my favorites! The wagyu beef cheeks is very tender and the mash is very smooth!
~Grilled Black Cod, Prawn Risotto and Kaffir Lime Leave Emulsion~ The black cod was fresh. However, it doesn't shout anything great! Risotto was also pretty plain.
~Earl Grey Creme Brulee, Hazelnut Sugar and Yuzu Jelly~ I didn't quite like the dessert. It just taste like Earl Grey Jelly. It also look a bit dull. Not a perfect ending for the set meal.
