SuperTree by IndoChine Review
As the only establishment atop the SuperTree Grove, SuperTree by IndoChine is situated perfectly on the tallest structure in Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, with unobstructed view of the cityscape. While more popular for drinks, we dropped by one evening for dinner.
The restaurant is built from rice husks and recyclable PET plastics instead of unsustainable timber. A heat exchange system that heats water used in the restaurant with the hot air by-product from air conditioning also ensures that the SuperTree stays true to its green roots.
Dishes served at SuperTree is a mixture of Indochinese, Western, and fusion dishes. The restaurant showcases a menu that is nutraceutical, serving food items containing health-giving additives. To keep to the promise of healthy tasty food, the dishes served at SuperTree consist of a large number of organic produce and absolutely no endangered species are served.
In the hope of visiting Tasmania some day, we had some Seasonal Oysters ($7/2pcs). Tasmanian shellfish are the finest in the Australian market. Their distinctive full-bodied flavour is complimented by lemon, asian spices and chilli lime dressing.
Supertree Platter includes beef roulade, rice paper hand rolls with minced chicken & roasted organic brown rice, Vietnamese fresh rice paper rolls with tiger prawn, lychee beignets and vietnamese scallop rolls in crispy silver threadskin. The most memorable side dish was Lychee Beignets. The gentle sweet flavour from the lychee pairs nicely with kurobuta pork loin and bacon.
Chef’s Special Grilled Fresh Squid ($22) is fresh and succulent with mixed garden greens and served with classic chilli lime sauce. I also ordered a pot of Fish Maw in Chicken Essence ($22) served with shredded bamboo shoots, shredded chicken, crab meat, black mushrooms and coriander.
My lemongrass cod & tiger prawn ($38) is immersed in aromatic medley of lemon juice, garlic, coriander and chilli, paired with poached tiger prawn. The fresh meat is drenched in a bed of tastebud tickling flavours combining spiciness from chillies, pungent from garlic and sourness from the lemon juice. The tangy soup base did not overpower the freshness of the fish meat.
It is a very pretty view at night. After dinner, we can enjoy a glass of cocktail in the alfresco rooftop bar with a 360-degree, unobstructed view of the entire Gardens by the Bay on one side and the Singapore Central Business District on the other.
However, prices here are on the steep side. So I guess I will only visit here if there are special occasions. Plus steps leading to the ladies toilet is very greasy.
