Iggy's @ Hilton Singapore

Well-known by local foodies as one of the best restaurants in the Singapore fine dining scene, Iggy’s is located in Hilton Singapore along Orchard Road and is in the 1* Michelin Guide Singapore, since 2017. The food served is primarily focused on seasonal Japanese ingredients they procure.

Dinner started with some bite-sized Snacks. A visual treat on your senses with mini sushi like potato cream balls with green curry and creamy uni (sea urchin)

First course is Cold Smoked Bonito - dashi jelly, crispy leek, ginger oroshi. A very refreshing and appropriate cold dish to whet your appetite for the dishes to come.

The Takenoko - 8 gems oscietra caviar, sweet corn velouté, chive oil is pleasant with a hint of earthy sweetness.

Next up is Risotto - winter black truffles, parmigiano-reggiano, duxelle. They absolutely nailed the balance in this one, the truffles did not overpower the dish, it melded perfectly with the cheese, mushrooms and rice.

Amadai - kabura, chijimi horensou, plankton foam. A modern Japanese inspired dish which I felt is a tad sharp in fishy flavours and less balanced than the other dishes.

Soup before the mains came in the form of Consomme Royale - sudachi, razor clam, superior iberico broth. It is a visual delight as the broth is poured in front of you and the flower blossoms while bringing forth the aroma of the broth. It had a familiar comforting taste which is light on the palate.

One of the options for mains is the Yamaguchi Wagyu - koji cauliflower puree, shishito, jus. Althought Yamaguchi is more well known for their Fugu (Blowfish), the wagyu cut served is tender and bursting with umami that I really wished the portion is bigger.

The other choice for mains is Duck Breast - sansho, coriander, sunchoke purée, wild rice, pommery mustard. Although I preferred the wagyu, the pairing of the duck meat and the sides elevated the flavour profile of the dish, adding more complex layers and goodness in the mouth.<

Pre-dessert palate cleanser dish is soursop and yuzu ice shavings. Well executed and assisted to flushed down the jelak-nous of the main courses.

Starwberry Shortcake - mascarpone, lemons sponge, strawberry sorbet - is served for dessert. The flavours were very balanced on refreshing on the palate which I throughly enjoyed.

To end of the dinner, guests are offered a selection of petit desserts comprising macarons, madeleine, parline and jelly.

Overall, the food is exceptional albeit the price point. Service is impeccable and coupled with the cosy setting, is prefect for a romantic dinner date. If you have a Citi Prestige card and snag the Haute Dining deal, it is definitely worth the experience.
