Corner House, the 1-Michelin-starred fine dining outpost in Singapore’s Botanical Gardens, is esconced in the former home of late botanist/mycologist, Edred John Henry Corner, hence its name. One of the restaurant’s main attractions is actually the greenery and abundance of foliage around it - an oasis in the middle of an urban jungle that is Singapore.
Amuse bouche - Salty fish crackers with tobiko and Pickled cucumber with mustard seed jelly
Hokkaido Scallops with mango, fennel, buckwheat and Ikura roes
New Zealand Blue Cod with “Crispy Scales”, with Hokkaido scallop, celery, tomato, laksa & crustacean sauce
Iberico Pork Jowl, with white asparagus, black garlic sauce and garlic leaves
My Favourite Childhood Memory, with peanut butter, pandan kaya and toasted "bread"
Petit Fours - Milo Dinosaur and Madeleines
Jason Tan’s dishes have pretty well-balanced flavours, with gentle handling of good quality ingredients. I rather enjoyed my meal here more than the one at Bangkok’s 1-Michelin-starred GAA early this year.
