Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass on a bed of Mushroom and Smoked Bacon Ragout with Truffle Uzu Butter Sauce

Restaurant Ember never fails to please and this meal was no different.

I’ve blogged about Restaurant Ember once before and have probably dined here at least 4 or 5 times since then.  Ember’s a relatively well-established restaurant run by husband and wife team of Sebastian and Sabrina continues to serve delicious dishes that tempt my taste buds on every visit.

Note: This visit took place a few months back and as such there might have been changes to the menu since.

Again, the execution was flawless and the scallops were fresh.

Homemade Crispy Tofu with Foie Gras Mirin Sauce

In my previous post on Ember, I said and I quote,

“Frankly, if the ordering was left up to me, I wouldn’t have ordered this dish. I mean how interesting can crispy tofu get? Tofus are tofus! But truth be told, the foie gras, mirin & white truffle sauce that accompanied the dish was nothing short of fantastic!”

Well, that opinion has not changed.

This was my first time having the chilean sea bass at Ember (I’ve since had a second go at it).

I’m pleased to report that on both occasions, the dish turned out nothing short of being stellar! The sea bass was fresh and not over cooked. The ragout of smoked bacon and mushrooms were simply irresistible and the Truffle Yuzu butter sauce, a fantastic choice.

Beef Tenderloin

Beef Tenderloin (S$38++)

At S$38++, it was definitely not one of the cheapest plates of beef available but you do get a decent portion and the dish was definitely above average! That said, it was certainly not one of the best beef tenderloins that I’ve had.

If memory serves, this was a special of the day and thus might not be available on your visit.

    This is one of the places still on my list to visit! I keep hearing so much good things about the food here.

    • You should go 🙂 The lunches are pretty affordable too! PLUS Sabrina and Lillian make such good hosts!

    You might want to change the header of this article as it says “They Never Fail To Dissapoint” which means they dissapoint you every single time??
    After reading the write up I guess you ment “they never fail to please”?

    • Done, Thanks!

    This doesn’t work for me if I copy and past a url into the browser. It udetaps the browser url fine if I start from the root and navigate around the site. However, if I try to deeplink to sub section e.g. mysite/subsection I get the following error:Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < vendor.js:1Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token < app.js:1Uncaught ReferenceError: require is not defined Do you have this issue at all?
