[Singapore] Odette Restaurant - Impressive 2* Modern French
Named after Chef Julien Royer's grandmother, Odette is a 2 Michelin star modern French restaurant in Singapore that has also been recently awarded as the Highest New Entry on Asia's 50 Best Restaurant at #9! The restaurant is located inside the National Gallery Singapore and has a romantic and elegant decor that reminds of me Tate Dining Room in Hong Kong. I came here for dinner where you can choose the 6 course for SGD$228 or the 8 course for SGD$268, and we ended up going for the full degustation. For long meals like this you'd almost expect a few misses here and there, but I can honestly say that every single dish we had at Odette was strong and impressive - I definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for fine dining in Singapore.
While we were still perusing the menu, we were each given a plate of 3 delicate amuse bouche including a Comte sponge with black truffle shavings, pita bread with anchovy and aubergine, and seaweed tart with petite peas.
You can pretty much tell that you'll have a great time at the start of the meal and this flavorful and aromatic Mushroom Tea with cep sabayon and walnut brioche proved just that. The mushroom tea had so much umami flavors and complex textures - it was just heavenly to drink!
Pigeon Fabien Deneour 3 Services:
BBQ Breast with root vegetables, chestnut and parsley
Confit Leg with barley, mushroom and black truffle shavings
Liver & Heart Parfait
We got a preview of our pigeon main dish before it arrived, and it reminded us of the pigeon we had at Azurmendi which was also served in a few different forms. While the version at Azurmendi was still superior, Odette's interpretation was still fantastic especially the tender chicken breast and creamy liver parfait.
Our refreshing pre-dessert of earl grey granita, pumpkin sorbet and matcha ice cream.
Lastly, we ended the meal as strong as we had started it with these beautiful petit fours - grapefruit and lime meringe lollipop, canele, passionfruit tart and salted caramel.
As we were about to leave, we received a souvenir from the restaurant - a beautiful paper box containing a jar of redcurrant jam made by the chef. It was a nice touch so that we can take a piece of our wonderful experience back with us and I can't wait to try the jam at home.
