After six months of work in the making, Chef Richard Ekkebus' Amber 2.0 was finally unveiled in May. Apart from a new and exciting menu that's staying completely away from dairy and gluten, the dining room was also revamped into a more casual space. There's more.

For someone like me who doesn't like to waste time studying the a la carte menu, the "Weekend Sommeliers' Lunch" menu was perfect (3 courses $538 - starter, main+dessert or 4 courses $608 - snack, starter, main+dessert). I was a little full after my breakfast at The Mandarin Cake Shop so I went with the 3-course set without the snack.

Taking a page out of our local cha chaan teng (traditional tea restaurants), all the cutlery and napkins are hidden inside a drawer underneath the table. How cool is that?

Judging from the sweetness of the scallops and razor clams, they have to be top notch ingredients so something versatile like kombu was the perfect catalyst (along with some lemon juice) to bring out the sweetness of our shellfish even more.

Tasmanian salmon confit, Ikura and vinegared rice cream - I have seen pictures of this dish everywhere from online magazine to SOMM's official website so I'm guessing it's some sort of house specialty!? 

Again the seasoning of the dish was very very light and it came primarily from the umami-rich salmon roes. The vinegared rice cream was a nice touch. I had a similar dish in Kyoto where they used vinegared sushi rice to make some kind of puree or cream as a dipping sauce. The concept was very similar yielding equally great results.

Madai, green flat bean coulis, pickled onions and horseradish - My main course was pan-fried madai fish which was slightly overcooked. The green flat bean coulis was a surprise addition providing the dish with some clean flavors to work with while the pickled onions and horseradish generated some extra kick. Very decent (except the overcook).

Veal “Wiener Schnitzel”, baked new potatoes - We were told that this was a very popular dish with very high demand at SOMM. From what we've seen from our neighbors, I could tell it's of high demand too.

The deep-fried veal cutlet was pretty tender and juicy but I actually enjoyed the baked new potatoes which have been dusted with onions, bacon and garden herbs even more.

Raspberry 1000-Feuilles and whipped pepperberry ganache - Mille feuille is always a crowd pleaser. This was topped with fresh raspberries, strawberry sorbet and whipped pepperberry ganache.

Abinao chocolate soufflé with cacao sorbet - I can't recall how long it's been since I last had a traditional soufflé but it had to be ages.

I was so happy that I picked this over the mille feuille. It was light and airy, almost like marshmallow with deep chocolate flavors (thanks to the layer of chocolate ganache and cocoa nibs on top). If there's ever a perfect chocolate soufflé, you're looking at it now.

For a restaurant dubbed as Amber's sister restaurant, I was certainly expecting more than what I've seen this afternoon. While all the dishes tasted reasonably good, they lacked the refinement, sophistication and artistry I was anticipating from a Neo-French bistro (something along the line of Belon perhaps?), especially for a MO establishment.
