Pleasant dinner with W during Restaurant week a few months back. I had dinner at Boathouse and lunch at Galribaldi, I felt Novus served the best meal and had the best service.
Novus is located at the National Museum of Singapore, serving modern European Cuisine with premium ingredients from around the world.A long bar greeted me upon arrival; a staff was quick to direct me to the adjourning classy restaurant. The food was delectable, portions were satisfying and service was attentive. Novus dessert, Valrhona Chocolate Test was simply divine, creative and a must try!
Lobster Risotto: Carnaroli risotto, Canadian lobster, shellfish stock, oven cheery tomatoes, fennel. I expected a few pieces of lobster and was pleasantly surprised by the generous serving lobster meat.
Valrhona Chocolate Test. When I first saw this dessert, I though it looked complicated and didn’t know where to start. The staff explained that we should consume it from left to right, starting from the lighter 33% aerated mousse to the stronger flavoured 85% dehydrated chocolate. W and I were so fascinated with this dessert we kept taking pictures of it before we began eating it, by the time we came to the 66% sorbet, it was half melted =_=
At the end of the dinner, we were presented with a gift, a cupcake! This was the first time i encountered this and thought the gesture was very thoughtful. Saved me from walking all the way to Plaza Singapura to buy breakfast for work the next day.
