Restaurant Week 2015 – Adrift by David Myers @ Marina Bay Sands (MBS)

Restaurant Week is coming to an end this season and my meals are getting better and better! Am really looking forward to Adrift after looking at its menu for Restaurant Week!

Stepping into MBS after we got the car to the valet. Love the high ceiling and the grandeur of the place.

In case you are interested to know the valet charges, it is $12 per entry from 7pm to 7am and from 7am to 7pm, it is chargeable at $12 for the 1st hour and $1 for subsequent 1/2 hour block.

Adrift is located at Tower 2 of the hotel lobby. It may be easy to miss it if you were approaching from a different direction like us and may miss the entrance.

Adrift – FOR THE DREAMERS & EXPLORERS by David Myers.

I guess, we are both! 😉

Upon entering, you will see the bar and the main dining area.

View of the Bar Area

We were ushered into the library which is open up for special functions as well as occasions like this when the main dining area is full.

Love this library but it was too dark for my iphone6 to capture a nice picture of it. 🙁

Lovely flowers on the table

Complimentary Rice Crisps from the chef to start our meal.

Our orders from Something to Start

Alaskan King Crab Melt with bread and butter, pickles and jalapenos

Pushing it apart and you can see generous shreds of the alaskan king crab between the bread

Close up of the lovely crab. Love it!

Duck Confit Wontons with mizuna, nam jim dip

Crispy wanton skins filled with duck meat on top a bed of Japanese greens accompanied by a Thai dipping sauce. The fusion of so many countries in just one dish!

Fully stuffed dumplings that tasted even better dipped in the nam jin dip.

The very refreshing nam jin dip that is sweet, salty and lemon-y at the same time.

Our Larger plates to share.


Sake Marinated Salmon with broccoli flowers, lemon vinaigrette

There are two slices of perfectly cooked salmon that is perfect for sharing too.

I did not like it as there was a bitter taste at the end.

My portion of salmon the pretty side plate

Crispy skin and beautifully cooked salmon. Thumbs up from a fatty fish foe – me 😛

 

Hanger Steak – Australian Wagyu, Red Chilli, Citrus Gremolata

Love the slightly crisps green on top

Perfectly cooked steak, juicy and yummy to the last bite! We just could not get enough of it!

PB’s order of a Coffee, $8++ to end his meal.

Love the saucer that looks like a huge inverted chawanmushi bowl cover 😛

Our Desserts!

Calamansi Creme, Fraiche, Creamsicle

This is the most popular item and the mention of calamansi is enough to cause my salivate to trickle!

It is simply delicious!!!! I did not know that calamansi can be made into such a delicious dessert other than the calamansi drink that we are familiar with! Definitely recommended!

Vietnamese Spiced Chocolate Pot de Creme with burnt marshmallow

Rich but not overly rich..LOL. I know I am contradicting myself but that is just how this dessert tastes like!

Eat it with the burnt marshmallows for the extra texture and flavour. 🙂

PB and I love the desserts so much that he wanted to order the other dessert on the Restaurant Week menu or get another calamansi. He is not a calamansi fan and for him to want to order it again, you should know how good it is!

We ended up getting the desserts menu.

There were 5 sweets items available and I decided on the Mango, shiso sorbet. And while ordering, PB ordered what caught his eye – Caramel French Toast! So we ended up tasting almost all the desserts available and they were all good!

Our additional desserts! Yes we have a sweet tooth and the desserts and portions here are just too good to resist. 😛

Caramel french toast, $8++  came topped with the coconut sorbet but undressed with the kopi syrup

It was drizzled right in front of us. A special touch of service 🙂

The remaining coffee syrup was left by the side for you to drizzle on as you wish!

Warm, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Coupled with the melting ice cream and coffee syrup, every mouthful was a delight!

Mango, shiso sorbet, almond brittle, vanilla ice cream, $10++

The shiso sorbet was amazingly fragrant and light, with the occasion saltiness from the few specks of sea salt buried within. A check with the service staff revealed that the fragrance came from Japanese parsley. Nice! An interesting and refreshing dessert that you should try though the mango word should be put last cos there was not much in it 😛

We were given Spiced Popcorn to take away after paying the bill. Nice gesture and great way to get people talking about the restaurant when they are sharing the popcorns!

Our bill came up to $160.07, a damage that we felt was pretty reasonable for the location and quality of food. The service staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of what they were serving and service was prompt and professional. Highly recommended if you want fine food that does not burst your budget, wanna impress a date or just chill at the bar where cocktails are reinvented by award-winning bar consultant, Sam Ross.
