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.

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*

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 🙂

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.

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

Two Wings @ Bukit Merah

Category : Western

Since I’m on it – blogging about not-so-nice food, let me just do a quick mention on Two Wings as well.

This is another disappointing long wait despite all the rage in social media.

We ordered their signature chicken wings along with some other dishes, with high expectations, only to end up struggling to clear the food.

Frankly speaking, it has been a while back since we first visited Two Wings and concluded that we won’t be returning again, so everything is kind of vague now.

If I recall correctly, their chicken wings are big, crispy & maybe juicy? In fact we were pretty impressed when the chicken wings were first served. But that’s about it.

There wasn’t much seasoning and they were quite bland. Plus the greasiness starts to get to us after a while. The feeling is quite different from the $1 coffee shop chicken wings I used to eat with my comrades where we could go on all night.

Their chilli is also reputed to be good as well. The darker one on the right is just a normal chilli sauce, like Heinz. The other chili arrived later and is the special chilli.

Personally I find the latter’s spice overpowering. When I dip the chicken wings in it, I don’t taste anything except spicy. So I stopped dipping the chicken wings after a while.

Not sure what else can I add…save your calories?
