My friend saw the adv on the newspaper that the Aspasia will close on 24 October. So we went there for lunch.
The waitress introduced two menus to us. One is the normal Executive Set Lunch menu and another is the FINDS menu. She said that FINDS will take over Aspasia and opens in Nov.
FINDS means Finland, Iceland, Normay, Denmark and Sweden. So the resturant sells northern europe food. The FINDS lunch is much cheaper than the Executive Lunch, from $108 with soup and salad, to $188 with soup, salad, main and dessert. The Executive Lunch was from $218, with appentiser, Secondi (soup or pasta) and dessert.
We had one Executive Set Lunch and one FINDS lunch set to share.Executive Lunch
Appentiser: Carpaccio of Wagyu Eyeround
Carpaccio of Wagyu Eyeround
: the beef was cut very thin. the fat melted in the mouth. however, there was some 渣. Not perfect.
Secondi: Spaghettini with Tuna Belly Tartare
Spaghetti with Tuna Belly Tartare
The spaghetti was very al denta. slight taste of white wine was mixed with the strong taste of garlic. the tomato gave a sweet taste in between. however, where was the tuna?? I nearly forgot that. There was only very very very little tuna at the bottom. Was tuna so expensive??
Dessert: Riccotta cannoel
the ricotta was not smooth and creamy enough. the pastry was not very crispy. the one in Angelini was much better.
FINDS set lunch
Appentiser: Autumn Salad with Duck Pastrami
The salad was very good. Plenty of differnt kinds of vegetable such as aspargus, beans, and lettuce. the vinegar sauce was yummy. The Duck Pastrami tasted like liver. we do not quite like it.
Main: Singature House-smoked Samon
I think we should have salmon is a restraunt selling Scandinavian food. The salmon was just cooked with strong smoke flavour. The salmon was still very tender. Delicious.
Dessert: Baileys Cheesecake
the cheese cake is very normal itself. however, it became very delicious after adding the baileys sauce. The crust was too thick. it will be perfect if the crust is thinner.
Overall speaking, the food in the Executive Set Lunch and the new FINDS set lunch was good. The new FINDS will be cheaper than the existing Aspasia. We will come again.
Some free vouchers (e.g. buy 5 lunch get 1 free, free wine for set dinner) of FINDS were given. See whether we will come to enjoy the discount?
