I visited Skyve Wine Bistro way back in 2011/2012 when they first started dishing out lazy brunches. I admit, I got distracted by the slew of cafes and restaurants that followed in the year and didn’t return. But restaurants like Skyve deserve a return visit for its food, peaceful setting and languid ambience.
I’m happy to say that I enjoyed my dinner at Skyve, and I have 3 dishes you absolutely must try from their new Spring Menu.
1. Beef Tartare ($18++)
This serving of ground up raw beef is more than just that. Take for instance, that beautiful egg topping. While most restaurants just go with the raw egg, it’s great to know that Chef Jachin has decided to put just a little spin on things with a Miso Cured Truffle Egg. Truffle aside, I enjoyed how mixing in the egg imparted the flavour of the miso into the meat to give it just the right amount of saltiness.
2. Lobster Sang Mee ($32++)
If you only have 1 item from the entire menu, this is it. The magic, for me at least, is in the egg drop soup that the crispy noodles end up absorbing to flavour fullness. It is only when the noodles are completely laden with the thick soup, that you should heave one mouthful of it into your waiting mouth. Follow up with a chunky bite of that lobster that’s swimming in the soup, and you have the perfect combination of texture. Bonus points to the kitchen for that lobster claw!
3. Molten Chocolate ($12++)
Thick, flowy chocolate encased in a sufficiently soft cake of sorts. This is the kind of simple pleasure that everyone should be able to enjoy without going into a state of sugar overload, and Skyve’s version is precisely that. There’s just enough resistance from the cake layer that holds the chocolate lava, and the chocolate itself isn’t saccharine sweet. When taken with the accompanying salted caramel ice cream, it’s an absolute winner.
