Sorry it was so good that I only remembered halfway to take a picture for posterity. Find this at Airy's Inlet along the Great Ocean Road, Melbourne. It's at the little cafe right by the light house.
Great weather, best scones on the road and good Melbourne coffee - bliss.
Sorry it's been an age - things have just gotten a wee bit out of hand! I'm back now, and hopefully for good. Thing's seem to be more exciting on the food front in Singapore over the last year, not least with the opening of the various celebrity restaurants at Marina Bay Sands. More fodder for the blogger :)
Anyhow, back to business - db Bistro Moderne. As of today, I've been there a couple of times now and I must say I've enjoyed both occasions. The first was a late girl's night out and the second, a lunch with a couple of colleagues. Fairly different occasions I'd say, but I had a lovely time both times.
The Grilled Foie Gras (pictured above) was divine. The trademark Original db Burger, not so. While definitely flavourful, the patty, stuffed with foie gras and shredded braised short-ribby goodness, was a tad on the dry side. I'm not saying it was bad, it just that it might have been a victim of the hype. The Traditional Coq Au Vin, so very rich and strong on taste, tempered nicely by the spaetzle that was just nicely done. One of my favourite coq au vin's thus far.
For entrees, you can consider the Assiette Lyonnaise, a platter of house made terrines and cured meats. It made for a lovely start to the second meal I had there.
Of course, given the location and celebrity restaurant status, be ready to part with a fair amount of moolah for a meal at db Bistro Moderne. Having also had a chance to visit Mozza just next door (more on this later), I must say however, that I've had a better time at db Bistro Moderne. It is a lovely restaurant.
now to try more of those restaurants at MBS.
