The Market Grill is helmed by Executive Chef Colin West, who used to work with the Les Amis Group. Now, orchestrating a menu of tantalizing grill dishes using premium to standard cuts, as well as an array of poultry or seafood dishes, quality is associated with the creations.
The decor of the restaurant is comfortable, with industrial touches of traditional butcheries and whimsical diners; one could even spot aquariums of seafood right by the front counter. Service was superior from start to finish, ensuring a delightful dining experience.
I started with a glass of White Wine (SGD$9.00) just because it is April - I allow everyday to be a celebration - whether business lunch, catching up with friends or merely casual meals at home. After all, I was having seafood, so the pairing worked.
*Mel went for the Lobster Roll (SGD$48.00) - chunks of a whole 500g lobster with herb mayonnaise mounted on crispy toasted Brioche roll, served with salad and fries on the side. She was full of praises for the lobster roll, citing deliciousness. My goal for next visit.
I had the CW Cod Fish Burger (SGD$28.00) - if I was expecting some sub-standard deep-fried cod patty, I was in for a surprise. Toasted parmesan bun clasped a generous fillet of grilled pommery-marinated buttery Atlantic cod - all flakey and tender and freshness. Other ingredients flanked together by the buns were vine cherry tomatoes, romaine lettuce and lemony herb mayonnaise. Every bite was a palate adventure and discovery of how good tastes come together.
Strange how I passed by The Market Grill umpteen times but never thought of visiting them. This visit was an excellent discovery, and I will definitely be back - thanks *Mei for the awesome recommendation.
