Lunch at Froth Cafe @ The Ascott Raffles Place

Moving and occupying the spot where The Royal Mail (review here) used to rest, is Froth Cafe, sitting above elegant staircase on level 2 of The Ascott @ Raffles Place.   Just for your information, Froth Cafe used to be located at the lobby of Big Hotel at Middle Road.

Helmed by a chef who used to work in high-end establishments such as Tippling Club etc, who boldly married Western and Asian cuisine into modern dishes such as Kimchi Risotto, Siobak Aglio Olio and Taro Waffles, scoring for the restaurant a reputation for creative, quality unique dishes.  We were excited to lunch here, to say the least.

Ambience was quiet, rustic and cozy in the spacious restaurant that has a character of its own. There is also an area that is suitable for events / private functions as well. Service was very excellent and the crew was attentive, enhancing the dining experience for us.

We both were immensely interested in the Sakura Tea (SGD$5.90), boosting of green sencha tea, green jasmine tea, cherries, rosehip, jasmine flowers, peonies and roses aroma all in one. It was a refreshing and pacifying floral respite at first sip.

*Fenella had the Siobak Aglio (SGD$25.90) - linguine served with slow-roasted pork belly crackling and pork jerky. The dish surprised us when it was served because it was decorated so prettily, with colorful petals and the items were thoughtfully-arranged. The pork belly - with its crispy skin and melty meat, was so tender and tasty, lending its flavour to the springy linguine pasta.

I chose the Squid Ink Lobster Roll (SGD$25.90) - squid ink brioche stuffed with lobster chunks, squid ink mayonnaise, pickled radish and tobiko, and served with truffle fries - another artfully arranged dish. The long, thin lobster roll was refreshing and distinctive in saccharine murkiness of squid ink essence as well as sweetness of springy lobster chunks.  The truffle fries were very aromatic and sapid in earthly notes, completing the meal beautifully.

We enjoyed our dining experience here tremendously, and I am keen to return to try the Kimchi Risotto and Taro Waffles for sure.
