Plum and Toro is a modern Japanese dining and cocktail restaurant and bar located at level 2 of Intercontinental Singapore Robertson Quay. The restaurant is quite new around the area. And if you can find Wolfgang Steakhouse, you will find Plum & Toro because it is right opposite it.
It was my first visit to Plum & Toro with my friend last week courtesy of ChopeSG. The restaurant and bar offers bincho charcoal grilled, teppanyaki items and also seasonal items depending on sources what are shipped directly from Japan. They also offer a list of Japanese cocktails, rare sakes and fine wines.
Diners can sit at the bar counter to enjoy the cocktails before proceeding to the dining area. You can opt to sit at the counter seat to watch chef in action as well.
We started off with their signature cocktails- P&T and Kyoto 75 – S$22.00++ per glass. P&T cocktail is a combination of Umeshu (plum wine ), Shiso Liquer, Cointreau and Lemon while Kyoto 75 cocktail is a modern Japanese twist from the classic French 75, focusing on Kinobi Gin & Yuzu liquor and Prosecco. This is lighter in taste as compared with P&T.
Yaki Buta S$9.00++
Their signature pork belly wrapped with fluffy tamago (egg). The pork belly meat is cut into pieces in the inside and nicely wrapped over with tamago and drizzled with chef’s special sauce and Japanese chilli pepper to complete the flavour.
Wagyu Truffle Don S$40.00++
Grilled wagyu beef kiriotoshi served with onsen egg and topped with distinctive fresh truffle slices. Mix everything together and indulged the rich and tasty flavours. Umami!
Sakura Ebi Somen S$20.00++
Stir-fried cherry blossom shrimp packed with savoury flavour served with thin noodles (somen) tossed with scampi oil. This is one of the signature dishes here in Plum & Toro and we loved it.
Sakura Ebi S$18.00++
Teppanyaki fried rice with cherry blossom shrimp and aonori.
Satsuma IMO S$15.00++
Oven-baked Japanese sweet potato served with a scope of vanilla ice-cream topped with snow salt to end a sweet note for the night.
It was a cosy Wednesday night and the staffs are quite attentive to customers’ needs. They greeted everyone with a smile. If you are planning for a date, check out this place for a cosy, romantic night. They also offer affordable lunch menu if you are working nearby.
