[Media Invitation] The Royal Mail Unveils New Menu Featuring Contemporary British Cuisine

Was invited to a media tasting: New Menu Featuring Contemporary British Cuisine at The Royal Mail Restaurant & Bar Street! The layout was posh and classic with dim lighting presented.

The Royal Mail Restaurant & Bar is a 60-seater establishment housed within the historical and culturally rich Ascott Raffles Place and serves modern interpretations of Classic British Cuisine where Roasts and Prime Rib take centre stage.

Scallop Carpaccio and Tuna
It consist of Hokkaido Scallop Carpaccio and Lightly-seared Tuna accompanied by capers, olive, and fresh vegetables ribbon to up the indulgence level.

I liked the combination and how each complement as a whole to make this dish a pleasant one to indulged. The tuna was fresh and its texture was pretty good as well!

Seafood Bouillabaisse
A  bright  tangy  broth  brimming  with  seafood  goodness.

I liked its gravy that was not too flavourful and goes pretty well with its Red  Malabar Snapper, Langoustine and Blue Mussel! The fish bones in the snapper may appear to be a hassle for some so please be careful while eating it.

Porcini and Bacon Risotto

This dish was pretty creamy and rich. However, I felt that it tasted quite good as it was not too flavourful. It may appear rather heavy for some so you may consider sharing it with your loved ones.

Black Cod Miso

This dish was certainly one of the highlight during the tasting session. I liked its tender texture of the fish and the gravy that goes so well with it! The sesame biscuit was crunchy and serves a good sides as well.

Kurobuta Pork

The pork was thick and juicy though it could have been slightly more tender for better taste. The apple butter sauce was appetizing and goes well with the nicely done pork. 

Yellow Sea Bream

If you enjoy grilled fish, you will certainly adore this dish more! Not to forget, the roasted garlic that tasted good!

Peanut Butter Jelly
It comes with toasted brioche, cranberry jelly, caramelised 
banana and deftly topped off with chocolate ganache.

Luvin' the caramelized banana that was nicely done!

Sticky Date Pudding
A date-studded offering capped off with vanilla brandy sauce, vanilla 
ice cream and walnut crumble.

Eton Mess

If you have a sweet tooth, you will certainly adore this dessert! This was okay for me but I felt that it tasted rather sweet for me. 

Enhanced Bergamot Earl Grey Jelly
Enlivening this dessert is frozen yoghurt, passion fruit coulis and macerated berries.

This was definitely one of the best dessert of the night! It was refreshing with a blend of sourness and sweetness which left a deeper impression for me. 

From now till 31st May, enjoy 20% off the revamped dinner menu at 
The Royal Mail in celebration of their 3rd Anniversary!
