Kuvo Ambrosia & Elixirs @ Orchard Shopping Centre

Category : Afternoon Tea, European, French, Modern Asian, Seafood, Western

The food & ambience at Kuvo @ Orchard Shopping Centre is amazing!

Kuvo is a lifestyle concept by TCC and its secret location is on the 2nd floor of Orchard Shopping Centre, where Lei Garden used to occupy.

Stepping into Kuvo is like entering into a different world, away from the bustling crowd of Orchard road and old façade of Orchard Shopping Centre.

I would never have guess that there’s such an exquisite restaurant here if not for the recommendation of my old friend 😀

We are here today to go through the wedding details of our groom-to-be while tucking into the gorgeous food of Kuvo by TCC.

I always enjoy myself in the company of my classmates and the good food @ Kuvo is just icing on the cake 🙂

Kuvo recently changed their menu from all day breakfast to small plates aka tapas. I love tapas!

And Kuvo’s tapas received raves from the class. They’re amazing albeit pricey.

Our evening started with Kuvo Portobello with Asparagus & Jalapeno @ S$12++. It’s sautéed portobello mushroom and green asparagus with jalapeno peppers and cherry tomato. Nicely seasoned, perfect texture.

And as declared, this is the best Grilled Octopus @ S$16++ we’ve ever eaten. Kuvo’s sous-vide octopus leg with slow-cooked potato and smoked paprika is perfect.Nice flavour and perfect texture. Highly recommended.

Here’s the dish of the night, Kuvo English Scotch Egg @ S$14 with melted edam cheese and red wine onion au jus (choice of wagyu beef, veal or tuna). The choice made here is wagyu beef & we had 2 orders of it! *Thumbs up*

I heard that this dish is not commonly available at restaurants because of the difficulty to achieve a nicely done egg with runny yolk within the meat. This is a must have when dining at Kuvo!

This is a very different Calamari @ S$16++ sautéed in garlic and extra virgin olive oil with pork charizo. This also received positive reviews while I’m partial to it.

Kuvo @ Orchard Shopping Centre 22

Another dish which we had 2 orders of is Kuvo Coffee Hot Wings @ S$14++ with baby carrot crudités and blue cheese dip.

Crispy, spicy, yummy with a nice twist of blue cheese dip. *Thumbs up*

 Kuvo @ Orchard Shopping Centre 23

Amidst all the positive reviews, we were served Kuvo Atlantic Cod Meuniere @ S$20++ with sweet pea-crusted fresh cod medallion with pearl barley fricassee and citrus nutty-brown butter.

I’m not a fan of pea so nothing much to comment here, but the texture of the Atlantic Cod is…yes, you guessed it, perfect. Very nice 🙂

Kuvo @ Orchard Shopping Centre 24

As for carbs, we had Kuvo Slipper Lobster Laksa Lemak @ S$14++ with half slipper lobster and thick vermicelli in spicy assam coconut broth. Compared to the earlier dishes, this is a little lacklustre.

Kuvo @ Orchard Shopping Centre 25

Ending our lovely meal on a healthy note is Kuvo Caesar 63°C @ S$12++ with premium italian prosciutto, 63°C slow-cooked egg, housemade casesar dressing and delectable parmigiano-reggiano shaves, with added smoked salmon @ S$3++.

It’s not bad though its egg is nothing compared to The Missing Pan @ Bt Timah 62 Degree Eggs.

Kuvo @ Orchard Shopping Centre 28

All in all, I highly recommend Kuvo Ambrosia & Elixirs @ Orchard Shopping Centre *Thumbs up* 😉

Skyve Wine Bistro @ Winstedt Rd

Category : Afternoon Tea, Breakfast, European, Food Glorious Food

I’m very excited to finally have the chance to dine at Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar @ Winstedt Rd! I’ve often looked longingly at the restaurant while waiting for my husband to finish his work at the real estate property office. And it looks like a really nice place to chill & hang out.

I’ve read somewhere that Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar was known as Table 66 previously, and I’ve read glowing reviews about Table 66 in Facebook previously so I definitely have a high expectation of Skyve Wine Bistro.

Entering the restaurant, the interior is very nicely decorated (can you spot the rocking chair in the background?) with fresh orchids on every table and interesting table mats to keep us entertained while waiting for our food.

We have a mushroom lover in our group so when she says that the mushroom soup is nice, guarantee plus chop that Skyve Wine Bistro’s Mixed Wild Mushroom Soup is a must drink for mushroom soup lovers.

Next up is Ricotta Hot Cakes which is very nice when you 1st sink your teeth into the dish. Greeted with the aroma of maple syrup, the passion fruit butter also adds an interesting twist to it.

However, towards the end of the hot cakes, there’s a risk of feeling “sick” as it all taste the same. Suggestion will be to order this for sharing instead. Too much of a good thing is not so good afterall~

Skyve Wine Bistro’s Minute Beef Steak Sandwich has a similar story line. The beef is very tender and it earned a *nod of approval* at the start. Its descend in stars is mainly attributed to the fact that the portion is too huge. Too much fries. Maybe it’ll be ok for diners with a bigger appetite?

Check out the gorgeous eggs benedict! This is the Skyve Sous Vide Eggs Benedict. Where and how to start eating this? No problem for my skillful colleague who gave this dish *thumbs up*. She commented that she’ll like to try Wild Honey’s Eggs Benedict one of these days to see whether Skyve Wine Bistro’s better or Wild Honey’s better.

Skyve Wine Bistro’s Kurobuta Pork Cheeks Burger was finished in a flash! What’s delightful about this Pork Burger is its super crispy bun. The downside is the accompanying Sweet & Spicy Korean sauce which didn’t sit too well with my colleague. The description given was “Weird”. The Sweet & Spicy Korean sauce was hardly touched.

Last but not least, my Norwegian Salmon Fillet with Citrus Butter Sauce. My 1st thought was “So small only?” Anyway I started to dissect the dish and started with the sides. The mushrooms were very tender and nicely seasoned, as were the carrot, broccoli & fake corn. I was a little disappointed that real corn wasn’t used instead as I love sweet corn.

I’ll like to give a special mention to the potatoes. The potatoes were nicely baked with the skin on. The texture was just nice with a hint of garlic. I finished all of it! Which I usually don’t cause of the carbo.

And finally the salmon. Woooooo~ This must be one of the nicest Norwegian Salmon Fillet I’ve eaten! The salmon skin is very crispy *thumbs up* and the salmon was done just right. The outer layer is cooked while the inner layer was left slightly raw so there’s a variety of texture & taste for that 1 thick slice of salmon. And yes it’s not that small afterall. I was very full after finishing Skyve Wine Bistro’s Norwegian Salmon Fillet. Yummy~

Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar @ Winstedt Rd’s “The Loafing Breakfast” & “The Sluggish Lunch” Menus are only available on weekdays at 10am to 4pm & noon to 4pm respectively.

If you’re looking for a place to hang out with friends e.g. the tai tai lifestyle or to organize team lunches & gatherings, why not check out Skyve Elementary Bistro & Bar that’s nicely tucked away @ Winstedt Rd, away from the hustle & bustle of the busy main road.

It may be livelier at night as I noticed a live band setup in a corner of the restaurant. Plus there’s a full fledged bar. If the weather is cool enough, there’s always the alfresco option in their garden 😉
