Kindly note that Roast at 1-Rochester has been replaced by UNA
W and I went to try the set lunch at Roast @1-rochester as there was a 1 for 1 promotion when the restaurant first launched the set lunch menu back in August. Yes, I know, my blog post is very, very late >_<.
One Rochester is romantic at night; during the day, the ambiance is serene. Perhaps it was because we visited on a weekday and there were only a few other tables occupied, the environment may feel different on a busy weekend.New furniture in the indoor dining area, I think it this design looks better!
The set lunch menu, so glad we came for the 1 for 1 promotion, super value for money. Our hearts were singing with joy when we saw the bill 🙂 🙂 🙂Tiger prawn salad with baby romaine lettuce, pomegranate and Persian Feta. I had the same salad (with couscous) served during my ROM and I love it so much I had to order it. The salad was refreshing, prawns were fresh and the pomegranate gave the salad a crunchy texture.
Half roast baby chicken wrapped in prosciutto with truffle, raisin and pine nut stuffing, rosemary potatoes and quince & pear compote. This certainly didn’t wow me, it was an average main course. I lamented I was dismayed by the small serving of meat to which W pointed out it was a BABY chicken. Oh well…definitely won’t be ordering this again next time, I am keen on the cheeseburger and pasta though…
Strawberry shortcake was enjoyable as well; the pastry flakes added on top of the cake was good enough for me to ignore the fact that the cake was a tad dry. I like strawberry shortcake moist with cream but W had no problems with the cake.An enjoyable dining experience and I look forward to trying more dishes from the set lunch menu 🙂
