A 100 Pointer, no Less!
Saturday at 2 Star Miichelin Restaurant Alma, with Chef ? Owner Henrique Da Pessoa.
Th revolution of a Chef can be measured by revisiting his Culinary Craft, and here is where Michelin got it right, totally, a most Pleasant Restaurant in a 300 year old Building, with loads of Character, An amazing Team behind the stove and a Portuguese Wine selection to makes your want this visit never to end.
What really impressed its a reflection of dining trends today, no fussy make up, no table cloth, perfect for dining with family or friends, perfect for sharing, and no stiff over the t5op Service Philosophy. From Manager to Sommelier to the rest of the Team, Hospitality par excellence exudes this team, it’s for me as close to perfection as one can get.
Off all the dishes I was able to savour, the Tomato Essence (true nothing really that new) but if its perfect, and for Lunch, its the predominant Dish to enjoy on a warm Summer Day, I loved the Dark Roasted Chili, a homage to Ryan Clifft, with its dip, but what truly stood out, (and all dishes were exceptional) was the Large Prawn, which was not only cooked to perfection, but the Rice (almost a risotto) an d the crunch textures added, which made this a dish, where you wish the meal would never end.
From Amuse Geuile, to the Cod’s Tongues, the Best ever Mackerel I have ever had the pleasure to consume, and Octopus, that was so Tender with its composition of various drops, to the unusual Beer Pairing, (a Local Craft Beer) with the Monk Fish, which I never ever had this tender, to the pre-dessert, this was a Gastronomic experience that was out of this world.
Unfortunately, didn’t have time for more, but as short and sweet, (still 100 mMinutes, this dining experience was, it was simply sensational.
Henriqure, you must come back to Singapore and share this, it’s simply brilliance on the plate.
