WOOD Restaurant & Bar @ VivoCity

PRESENTING TO YOU HUNGRY “FOODNWINELOVERS”……
WOOD Restaurant & Bar

One of the hippest dining enclaves to hit Singapore, WOOD Restaurant & Bar, a newly adapted concept of incorporating cooking over wood is definitely here in TOWN to bring the art of cooking to a greater height!

With compliments from Wood Restaurant & Bar, we were treated to a 4 course tasting Menu prepared by Celestine and her team of Chefs!


Tasting Menu…

Starters
Wood Smoked Scallops, Leek Puree & Salted Black Beans $19

The best thing about this dish was that the scallops were really thick and juicy, and the portion was generous, so stop worrying if you can ever have enough! The scent of wood was distinctive with each bite of the scallop, overall it was a good dish in opening one’s appetite.

Yummy Scale: 3.5/ 5

Wood Roasted Asparagus Soup $14

To me it felt like a soup that has all the ingredients in the exact right amount, no more no less. It was not too thick yet had a strong focus on the flavor itself. Definitely a healthy choice!

Yummy scale: 3.5/5


Smoked Foie Gras Pizza with Grape $25

A MUST TRY! this was my favorite dish of the night. My first time trying such a pizza and I really enjoyed it very much. Though the foie gras was limited, its flavor was really intense, might possibly bring you to a state of euphoria! a perfect match with the thin and crunchy pizza crust with a hint of “charred” wood infused through the coking process.

Yummy scale: 4/5


Main Course
Stone Grilled Rice with Clams, Prawns, Fresh Tomato and Ginger $28

It definitely looks like an interesting dish when the stone pot arrived at our table, i would say just by the presentation, it already won my heart over! Just by tasting it, one could easily sense the aromatic flavors by the mingling of tomato and seafood juice, if you like a little spiciness to it, just inform the friendly staff to add some chili in for you:)
Yummy Scale: 3.5/ 5


Cardamom Coffee 12 Hours Smoked Wagyu Beef Brisket $32

Personally, i feel that the beef is quite a lackluster compared to the previous dish, the beef was a little over- cooked, thus causing the meat to be a little too tough for a Wagyu Beef. However, the sauce did make quite a difference, one could taste the ingredients used in the sauce, one prominent ingredient is definitely COFFEE!

Yummy scale: 3/5

Sides
Ginger Salt Baked Sri Lankan Mud Crab *Market Price

A very unique way of cooking a crab. I mean, how many times have you seen a crab covered in salt crystals and Ginger, wood baked in the oven. I guess that must be the reason why the crab had such a homogeneous taste. Maintaining its moisture and freshness of the crab, one could not miss the chunky flesh of the crab…. Slurps!!

Yummy scale: 4/5

Oaxacan Style Grilled Hokkaido Corn on the Cob $9

Pleasantly surprised by the sweetness of the corn. These Hokkaido corns really made me a happy girl all over again! Not forgetting the mozzarella cheese shavings which are not only visually pleasurable but also further highlighted the sweetness of the corns. Indeed a good blend of ingredients.

Yummy scale: 3.5/5


Desserts

Lychee Mint Granite with Framboise Jelly $10

Honestly, I was never a mint lover. The only mint I eat is probably “Clorets” (if they are mint at all). I was very surprised by how well the lychee and mint blended as one, and how their flavors complemented one another. It tasted genuinely refreshing after a long and heavy, not forgetting carbo-intensive dinner.

Yummy scale: 4/5

Food aside, the great ambience (with the view into Sentosa!) and the friendly service staffs were definitely another plus point to Woods. It was definitely a delightful dining experience we have had. Personally this is not my 1st time dining in Woods, however, it just seems that whenever i come, it’s always another new experience for me. I was truthfully impressed by not only the food itself, but also the thoughts and efforts put into the many small details which recurrently triggered the “ooooooo”s, the ‘ahhhhhhhhh”s and the “wow!” from us.

Just a little bit more info…
Walking into Wood is just like entering a 5 star hotel, be entertained by the young and friendly host who’ll head you through the narrow and subtly lit passage to WOOD and be awaited by a 3 meter high wine tower that impressively stores 500 bottles of wines waiting for you to choose from.

Once you enter main dining area, one could easily feel a sense of classiness and coziness while you are seated by the host. Not a second will you not be entertained by the whole layout and design of the restaurant with a full view of the open glass concept kitchen while overlooking the Cruise Bay separating Singapore from Sentosa….

Most importantly, if you’re in for some romantic dinner or a simple lunch for the weekly bestie dates, check out the PRIVATE DINING area in WOOD Restaurant! Give them a ring and I’m sure you’re in for something INTERESTING:)

*Indeed the perfect setting for couples!
