This place is wonderfully far removed from the crowd. The glass-paneled building, which is actually a refurbished monorail station—very L.A. chic. With a verdant alfresco setting and its historical building, this place has a nice ambiance. Expect dishes such as foie gras and confit duck terrine; lobster bisque; and rack of lamb provencal from the modern European menu. Related to Wine Network, #01-03A Tanglin Village, 13 Dempsey Rd., 6479-2280.

This place is far removed from the crowd and also a bit difficult to find if you don’t know where it is. The glass-paneled building looks like something out of Toploader’s “Dancing In The Moonlight” music video—very L.A. chic. We also liked the lush, open concept and the minimalist décor.

However, the staff were a little frazzled—they forgot our soup (but made up for it by giving us dessert on the house). So we had a prawn mango salad with pomelo and lime vinaigrette instead, and the crab linguine for a main. The salad was light and healthy, but nothing spectacular. There was a hint of sweetness in the crab meat simmered in tomato sauce which we thought was odd at first, but then grew to like gradually.

For dessert, the double brandy chocolate fudge cake with rich brandied milk chocolate and dark bitter sweet choc frosting was delicious, but too decadent for us to finish. The New Zealand fig and manuka honey ice cream would be a lighter dessert option. Over time, there is a good chance that the service here will improve, which would greatly help the experience one gets here.
