Buko Nero Singapore
It takes a one month reservation to get a seat in this 20-seater restaurant. While the food was decent, it still left me somewhat disappointed. I would say it isn’t at all worth the same kind of trouble you go through to get a table at say, Pascal Barbot’s 25-seat L’Astrance, booking at least 1 month in advance . I wasn’t allowed to take any photos of the food—not that the presentation was particularly inspiring.
I had an uninspiring crab meat bisque, followed by an overcooked halibut sitting on a bed of tasty lentils and a delicious flourless white chocolate hazelnut cake. It is depressing eating dried out overcooked fish when you’ve set expectations high. It didn’t help that the lentils were delicious. It’s like having the most luxurious bed and a bad pillow.
To each his own, I have some friends who love this place, but I guess I either had really high expectations or the food just wasn’t for my palate.
