[resto] Halia (Singapore)



Category : asian
Price : expensive $$$

Had dinner at Halia on Thursday night (18/10) with my DH & friends after looong walked at SBG. Halia berarti ginger, lokasinya juga di Ginger Garden, di dalam SBG. Menggunakan icon bunga ginger berwarna ungu untuk lambangnya.

Kami pilih lokasinya di alfresco sitting, engga pake AC dan be one with nature. Tidak panas, karena udara malam & kipas angin di ruangan. The ambience was cozy & romantic, enhanced by jazz music played almost the entire time we were there & the service was marvelous.

The food’s beyond expectation. Delicious!

We started off with Caesar Salad (SGD 11), Young Spinach Salad (SGD 12) and 2 of Soups.
Next up for the main course we had (1) Slow Roasted Fillet of Tasmanian Ocean Trout – in garden herbs emulsion, with fresh clams & potato puree (SGD 36) **** tender & juicy! (2) Hokkaido Scallop & Prawn Linguini – with basil leaf, oven-dried cherry tomato, asparagus and garnished with salmon roe in a light cream sauce (SGD 34) *** so-so (3) Fritto Mito Baby Vegetables and Cilantro Pesto Spaghettini – accompanied with ginger tomato chutney dip (SGD 28) ***** My favorite. The best one! (4) Aubergine & Tofu Tower – baked egg plant, portabello mushroom with tofu. **** mirip aegedashi tofu.
For the four of us, we ended up spending about SGD 297 with wine

All in all, it was an enjoyable dinner, the finest food in the area.
