[SG Food] Flutes at Guoco Midtown House: A Culinary Journey Through Heritage and Innovation

Flutes, renowned for its long-standing presence at the National Museum of Singapore, has recently relocated to a historic heritage site at Guoco Midtown House, formerly a police station. Although the restaurant has been a fixture in Singapore’s dining scene for years, my first visit was an eye-opening experience.

The evening began with an array of snacks – BBQ Yumbah Abalone with Kombu Butter and Truffle, Potato Croquette with Bafun Uni and Oscietra Caviar, and Kangaroo Tartare with Beetroot and Goat’s Cheese. These offerings showcased Flutes’ adept fusion of Australian ingredients.

Opting for the dinner degustation menu at S$178+, we embarked on a journey of nine meticulously crafted courses. Each course was meticulously crafted, reflecting Chef’s dedication to harmonizing flavors and textures.

The meal concluded with a Petit Fours- Kaya Soy Bon Bon, Yuzu Jube, and Rojak Flower Macaron, each a tiny bite for a sweet ending.

For those looking to enhance their dining experience, an additional beverage pairing option is available for S$108++ per person, allowing guests to savor a selection of wines expertly chosen to complement each course.
