Been a while since we came back to this area at Keong Siak Road. Dong Ya is a great place to play the Pokemon game as it has 2 Pokemon stops very close to each other and you can recharge and enjoy your Pokemon Game have a lovely dinner all at the same time! Hahaha.. But this was not what we came here for.
Walking down to Hotel Ember with its unique chairs to reach Restaurant Ember – our chillax dinner place for tonight!
The cute terrarium sphere at the counter.
Love the cosy interior
Set Dinner Menu where you can have a 4 course set dinner at $78++ per person or 3 Course set dinner for $68++ per person.

We wasted no time in deciding that the 4 course is the way to go! 😛
House bread made of sun-dried tomatoes was served very pretty quickly after we placed out orders.
Close up of the crispy on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside.
We fancied another portion and was told it is chargeable at $2++. Ordered it but I think they forgot the order as our appetizers were served.
Light casting shadows on the ala carte menu on the table which explains why my photos are are taken at a certain angle 😛

The mini indulgence that PB never denied me!
Cannot remember what this was but you are supposed to eat it with the cheese dip

Tiny peek of the kitchen from where we were seated
Course 1: Soup – Market Pumpkin with Galanga and Pumpkin Seeds
Close up of the pumpkin seeds served on a pastry that is in between a cracker and a bread.
Love that the soup is served pipping hot and it was kinda interesting to get a hint of galanga in a pumpkin soup.
Course 1: Angelhair with Jicarna, Bonito and Shimeiji
Absolutely love it!
Another view of the Angel Hair.
It was so good that I think I can have 10 of this!
Course 2: Scallops with Cauliflower, Preserved Lemon and Cilantro
Another thumbs up dish!
Course 3: Ah Hua Kelong Seabass
Close up of the seabass served with tomato butter and wild fungus
Beautifully crisp and perfectly cooked!
It was so tender and juicy and such a great contrast to the last fish we had at another restaurant during Restaurant Week. 😛
Course 3: Vension with pea shoots, banana shallots and wild rice
Close up of the deer meat
Love the sweet crispy wild rice which gave a nice contrast to the the texture of the vension!
Close up of the pea shoots
Perfectly done vension and for the unknown, it tasted just like beef.
Course 3: Market Pork Belly with enoki, parsley and cashew
Close up of the pork belly topped with deep fried enoki mushrooms
The parley sauce helped to take away the saltiness of the pork belly sauce
Cross section of the pork belly.
Comparing the vension to the pork belly, the vension was way better though both were a tad too salty.
Pre-dessert palate cleanser
Very fine hibiscus ice sahvings on the very chilled jelly. Nice!
Course 4: Dessert – Kaffir Lime, Coconut, lemongrass
Looking at this transported me to those days when I was watching the Australian Masterchef! Every piece of dessert is an art and it tasted great too!
Love this dessert and I feel that it is a great dessert to wrap up the meal.
Course 4: Banana ,Vanilla, Dark Chocolate
Close up of the Brownie and Ice cream
The brownie was quite dense. Good on its own but not after so many courses.
Overall a very pleasant dining experience with intricately prepared food but parking in this area may be a bit tricky so do consider taking public transport.
