Chef Daniel’s Kitchen – CLOSED
THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED.
2 years ago, the boy and I came to Chef Daniel Kitchen for our second date. It was a casual dining then. I remembered he had a bowl of unagi bento while I had fried fish with pasta. 2 years later, we are back here again with our friends and were delighted about the menu’s revamp.
One of the must try dishes here is non other than the Six Sense Mushroom Soup ($18) which is a flavourful mushroom broth with herbs. It contains herbs like Qian Shi, Huai Shan, Xiang Lian, Bai He, Yu Zhu and Dried Longan which gave it a nice herbal tint. When eaten with crunchy chinese cabbage and bread, it was a lovely dish.
Sashimi Grade Tuna ($30) is like tuna tataki. Fresh tuna was used, the surface was slightly seared with cracked pepper and cumin while still pink on the inside. Pair it with green asparagus and white wine butter sauce, my friend love it very much.
For something lighter, go for Braised Somen with Coloso Crabmeat ($28). The very thin noodles absorb the essence from the homemade superior broth and you can eat it with fresh seared scallop, prawn and fish medallion every mouthful.
Another recommended dish is the Stewed Lamb Shank in Rose Wine ($30). We really like this dish because the meat is very soft and tender, combining with red rice, pearl onions in lamb jus, herb crusted potatoes, it was a good combination.
Aromatic herbs were used to grill the Summer Snapper ($32) before adding julienned vegetables, cherry tomato confit and braised garlic. I find that it was mediocre and the price was too steep.
The boy ordered from the “Best Cut” section which was first served with Chef Daniel’s Salad. It was similar to Lawry’s Spinning Bowl Salad. The salad is made tableside in a bowl set into a large bucket of ice. The salad bowl is spun while they add the signature dressing, tossed to perfection.
His Angus Sirloin (200g, $40) was served with Asian inspried sauce with red wine reduction and roasted vegetables. Very lovely, in fact the steak by itself already tasted great and super tender.
Dessert of the day was mango mousse cake.
Chef Daniel’s Kitchen also serve set lunches at $16.80 (2 course) or $23.80 (3 course). Lovely food and pleasant atmosphere, we had a long chat in the restaurant sharing each others’ travel experiences.
