Racines situated at fifth level of Sofitel Singapore City Centre introduced a weekday semi-buffet dinner thoughtfully crafted by Executive Chef Eric Seow. Diners can indulge in their choice of main course along with a curated spread of salads, soups, appetizers, and desserts.
We kick start with a selection of French cheeses, cold cuts, assorted sashimi, and hors d’oeuvre including Whole Salmon Confit and Country Pâté. Racines offers quite a range of fine French Cheeses and Charcuterie and the housemade Country Pate with cognac, dried fruits and pistachios wrapped in bacon. Do not miss the Honey-smoked Duck Breast too! What a good way to start the dinner!
Next, there is well-curated chilled seafood station for seafood lovers.
For main courses, Chef Eric features a balance of western and Asian delights. We were served creamy Arborio Risotto first. Arborio is prized for its creamy texture and absorbs the flavours well especially with the sauteed morel mushrooms. And the best part is shaving of truffle to add on the touch of the dish.
Then, we tried Wagyu Flank Steak. The cut is lean but robust in flavour and a nice touch of umami dashi soy glaze. It has the trademark beefy flavour and tender in texture.
For Asian selection, we had the Sambal Seafood Rice. Stir-fried seafood with sambal paste, turmeric rice and calamansi. The cistrusy sambal paste gives a punch in spicy flavour and it goes well with the turmeric rice. It is more of a comforting Asian delights dish.
Other Asian main course selections include Bak Kut Teh, Kolo Mee, Sweet and Sour Pork and Truffle Fried Rice.
Lastly, we end the meal on a sweet note with dessert selections like Paris-Brest, Fraisier Cake, Belgian Waffles and more. The Belgian Waffles are served a la minute with Chantilly cream and berry compote from the live station.
