Restaurant Andre situated off the foodie strip Keong Saik Road is a very special venue to celebrate a very special occasion. This occasion happened to be my 32nd birthday.
The restaurant is carefully hidden in a building that resembles the quaint chalk town houses off Georgetown in Washington DC. Elegant and matt and totally un-singaporean in style and feel, until you are greeted by the local staff. The restaurant seats 18 guests, its intimate and fine-dining in its true form. Service is above the usual Singaporean Fine-Dining level. A sommelier who actually knows his wine and bouncing at attention waiters.
The menu is set and takes 2 and half hours to complete. In usual fine dining manner we found our selves treated to many delightful pre-snacks which are full of pezazz and wow factor. Stand out dishes were the no salt round and charcoal fritters hidden within real coal logs!
We finished nicely with a bunch of tasty sweet bites, our favourites were the Sangria Lollipops and deconstructed Snickers bar. Chef Andre added some extra sweetness to the night as he made his rounds to the tables and conjured up quite pleasant conversation. Born in Taiwan, raised in France and Chef and restaurant owner in Singapore. He has achieved a stand out service with his place which provides the science and taste no other fine dining has delivered in Singapore to date. A well deserved spot on Asia’s top 50 restaurants. I would highly recommend if you are missing Heston’s innovative plates or true french fine dining service.
