At a recent press lunch at the Water Library Chamchuri, chef de cuisine Mirco Keller previewed some of his latest culinary creations and they are indeed worth the journey to this chic eatery’s flagship location—tucked away on Level 2 of Chamchuri Square (near the Sam Yan MRT Station). The restaurant is notable for its floor-to-ceiling display of bottled water brands, as well as it’s extensive drink menu—which includes inventive Aperitif and Digestif cocktails—but the newly revamped set lunch menu is truly extraordinary. Highlights include: Gazpacho Adaluz, with mango and prawn; a Pulled Pork gourmet burger with spicy lobster mayo; Beef cheek with dashi, daikon, and jus; Onsen egg with Canadian scallop and parmesan; Pan seared foie gras with mango, miso, and balsamico caviar; Scottish salmon with chive veloute, and pickled cucumber; and Duck confit with spinach, soy, and brown butter. Desserts also get ramped up, so save room for the exquisite Passion Fruit Pudding with raspberries, gianduja chocolate, and caramel corn and/or the Apple tarte tatin with vanilla bean ice cream.
The price for the set lunches is B890 (2 courses), and B990 (3 courses). Lunches also include Water Library’s coffee and fine selection of teas.
