Ikura features Myoga (Japanese Ginger) and smoked salmon on Blinis. The Bafun Uni features Jerusalem Artichoke, comice pear, and Truffle. Open up a brown paper bag and it reveals the signature Alma Foie Gras Toast. Almost resembles kaya toast out of Toast Box. Do not be fooled by its looks. It is nothing like kaya toast!
Start the experience with “Beurre Blanc”, a Chef Amador classic. The French butter sauce ice-cream starter bursts with sweetness from sous vide whole oyster. Russian caviar is added on top and presented on a bed of hazelnut foam and finished with an oyster leaf and a spritz of lime.
Swordfish ‘Toro’ is Chef Haikal’s creation. Chef Haikal ages swordfish belly sashimi for three days in salt, sugar, lemon and an orange mixture to yield umami slices with an iridescent shimmer. There is also Bafun uni, summer zucchini, Australian winter truffle, and a refreshing apple, cucumber, and fennel sauce, and a grated frozen wasabi granite.
Chef Amador’s star dish is the Mieral Pigeon. Tender juicy pigeon breast is cooked in hazelnut oil and served medium-rare. The aromatic purple curry crust is delightfully crunchy. Enjoy the pigeon with coconut puree, diced fresh mango, and dollops of pigeon jus. Pair the Garmon Continental Tempranillo Ribera Del Duero 2016 from Spain with this main.
Guests have a choice to replace this with the Kumamoto A4 Beef by topping up S$58++.
Chef Haikal uses a classic French technique to steam King Crab as a blanc manger, made with the reduction of crab shells and paired with yellow wine from the Jura region of Vin Jaune in Eastern France. The King Crab is served with a mousseline of Japanese spring onion, Thai sweet basil, Thai holy basil, lemon verbana, chervil, tarragon, and seaweed powder.
