The Exchange

Situated in the CBD, the Exchange is a place where many working crowds will gather especially during their Wednesdays ladies night. All ladies get free martinis every Wednesday from 6 - 9pm. It is very crowded whenever that time of the week comes.

We settled our last minute Valentine's Day dinner here and I was lucky enough to be able to reserve a seat for 2 on the day itself during lunch time. I guess it is due to the location, thus it was not pack during dinner time.

We decided to try out their Valentine's day set meal since the price is really reasonable and it is to our liking.

Ice cappacino

Oysters with tobiko

The oysters are really fresh and it goes well with the tobiko topped on it as it gives it a natural salty flavour.

Yellow fin tuna

My favorite for the entire meal has got to be this. I'm a fan of tuna and these 3 thick chunks of tuna has a burnt taste on the outside and the fresh tuna taste on the inside. I can have a plateful of them.

Roasted prawns and hand made pasta

The texture of the pasta is just nice for my liking. It is not too soft and yet not as hard as those we tasted in Italy. The langoustine broth that the pasta are soaked in is really good. However the bad side is that the pasta tasted way too salty.

Duo of chocolate for two

The molten lava cake was a disappointment. This is probably the driest lava cake I have ever eaten. The texture of the cake is as dry as a normal sponge cake. Although the chocolate in the cake is still melted, the rest of the cake is really dry. We know that for molten lava cake, the cake is usually moist. There is nothing to shout about for the whole dessert platter. The chocolate square is just some chocolate moose served in a different shape.

Truffle Fries

We ordered this separately and it tasted pretty good when served piping hot. I also realized that many tables ordered their truffle fries too. This is still not the best that I have tasted. But I wouldn't mind paying $12 for them again.
