Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay – British European Fare in Marina Bay Sands
Gordon Ramsay is one of the the biggest name in the food industry. With many michelin-starred restaurants under his belt, as well as a number of well known TV programs such as Hell’s Kitchen and Masterchef USA, he seems to be everywhere. Finally, this celebrity chef has opened up an outlet of his well known London restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen in Singapore. The local version is modelled on the London original, offering classic British European fare in a lively and bustling space facing the spectacular waterfront.
Inspired by local ingredients, Bread Street Kitchen features an extensive menu that showcases a mix of vintage and modern British favourites. The roasted veal carpaccio with dill pickles, quail’s egg and tuna dressing ($26) was pleasant. The quail’s egg was marvellously runny-yolked, and the pink-middled roasted veal carpaccio tasted delectable with the tuna dressing.
There is nothing very exciting about the menu, just safe reliable dishes. The slow roasted Dingley Dell pork belly ($28) has a beautiful gold cracking which yield a satisfying crunch. Not sure about having the whole slice of meat for myself, it will be good to cut into small pieces for sharing, just like what they did for the Hong Kong outlet. Nevertheless, the tender and succulent meat had just the right amount of fats and lean, complemented with spiced apple puree which cuts through the savouriness and offers a welcome contrast.
The restaurant’s traditional fish & chips ($26) was decent, paired with crushed peas and tartar sauce. The batter was light yet substantial, without being the slightest bit greasy, whilst the fish was perfectly flaky and moist. On the side, we had a serving of macaroni cheese with garlic roasted crumbs ($16). The macaroni was soft and fulfilling, indulgently bathed in cheese and accentuated by punchy garlic roasted crumbs.
I also really enjoyed the roasted black cod with crushed potatoes, salted capers, artichoke, red wine and lemon sauce ($44), even though the price was slightly steep. The black cod was beautiful, delicate and light, whilst the sauce was moreish. Our table happily licked it clean between us!
From the grill section, savour dishes such as Dingley Dell Pork Chop ($44), Roasted Baby Chicken with chimichurri ($34) and Irish Angus Rib-Eye 28 days aged ($68), as well as the hearty Lamb Chops ($44). Tender meat with a nice gravy, all very well presented. You can also make your own surf and turf with any grill, half lobster or king crab at $25.
Sweet delights includes classic British desserts such as Chocolate fondant with salted caramel and mint chocolate chip ice cream ($20), Coffee and white chocolate parfait with poached blackberries ($18), Banana sticky toffee pudding ($18), Pineapple carpaccio with passion fruit ($15) and many more.
The “interactive” bar area features a communal table and allows for mixologists to offer a lively drinking experience, perfect for an after-work catch up, serving both classic and innovative cocktails with fresh ingredients and a selection of world wines.
It was interesting to see how quickly the restaurant filled up, even on a Tuesday evening, so there was no doubt that the pulling power of the Gordon Ramsay name was just as strong as ever. Why not, it has a decent menu, and a beautiful view of the waterfront and city skyline. Book your table fast, I heard seats are filling up very quickly.
