Bistro Soori

We have always wanted to visit here and have been talking about it for the longest time for the PANDAN SOUFFLE! And finally.... here we are!!!

We came during lunch time and ordered the set lunch just like what almost everybody did. The set is going at $39.90 each and I feel that it is good value for money. Cost of dinner can be a little steep though.They didn't have alot of seats in the restaurant, so I strongly suggest reservations to be make.

Starters: Scallops, Pistachio Pesto, Arugula, Vinegar Pear Gelee, Truffle Vinaigrette 

Though the colour of the sauce doesn't look quite appetizing, the taste of the whole dish is actually fabulous. I can eat many more plates of this. The pistachio flavored sauce goes well with the not so strong truffle taste.

Starters: Pan Grilled Miso Scallops, Mango Miso Puree, Mixed Green, Balsamic Reduction

The other starter that we ordered for the 2nd set is another scallop dish. The scallops are grilled just nice. It is soft on the inside and a little burnt on the outside. The mango miso puree taste pretty refreshing but I can't remember tasting at miso.

Espresso cup of soup

I like the soup. I usually prefer clear soup like this than those creamy ones. This mushroom soup is served in a small espresso cup and it comes together in the set.

Main Course: Cured Roasted Pork Tenderloin, Red Cabbage, Grain Mustard, Raisin, Pear

The both of us had the pork tenderloin and we didn't regret the choice at all. As you can see from the picture, the tenderloin still has a little redness in the center. That's what we usually see when steak are serve since people don't usually like their steak to be fully cooked. Since I don't eat beef, this is definitely a great substitute. The pork is so soft and juicy. It goes perfectly well with the red cabbage which tasted just fine by itself too.

Dessert: Caramelized Banana Puff, Rum Syrup, Vanilla Ice Cream

I find that the pastry is a little rich in taste, a little buttery. But the caramelized banana taste great.

Dessert: Pandan Souffle, Cookie, Strawberry Compote

We love souffle and I think many people do. It is always good to taste different flavor of souffle. Pandan was definitely good and this was also properly prepared, raising to a height just nice.
