Available for lunch and dinner, the à la carte menu has tons of delicious options such as the moreish lobster and prawn toast blanketed with a spicy tobiko sauce, and a refreshing mix of avocado and baby cress in a miso dressing.
Entrées are made for sharing, especially the smoky Westholme wagyu striploin enlivened with tarragon emulsion, and the snapper bouillabaisse. John’s version is lighter but tangier, thanks to his use of spicy daikon and lemongrass.
It’s easy to kickstart your meatless diet here, now that the restaurant's offering an à la carte vegan menu that spans appetisers, entrées and desserts. Start the meal than with the mock crab meatball, an aromatic deep-fried Gardien crabless cake that you need to dip into the zingy vegan wasabi sauce for extra flavour.
