Itchin' for Iggy's

i have been itching to try Iggy's for ages ... correction ... DYING to try Iggy's ... heard so much hype about the place ... refer to this article (and here too) which states claim that it is one of the world's top 100 restaurants (kicking Les Amis out of the usual league) ...

"Iggy's comes in at number 98. It is, it must be noted, the only restaurant in Southeast Asia in the world's top 100"

it is also ranked as the 4th best restaurant in Asia ...

with such accolades ... who can resist not trying it out when its in Singapore and a just phone call away to making a reservation?

since the wedding was held at The Regent and i needed to take half a day off ... decided to seize the opportunity to finally try out Iggy's with Wilson + Yingkai as lunchmates in tow ...

set lunches are a cheaper alternative to dinner ... a 3-course meal costs $45+++ (if wagyu beef is selected, it will set you back an additional $30) while a 5-course meal costs $75+++

overall, THUMBS UP for Iggy's ... service was great ... from making the reservation, accommodating to my changes, confirmation of reservation ... everything was well handled ...

being a cosy 28 seater restaurant (reservations are a must!), actual service was excellent too ... we were always well attended to ... and another plus : i love the warm bread served before the actual meal ... soft bread stuffed with olives (my fav!) ... fantastic!

don't expect chi chi ambience ... setting is simple, nice and casual ... come for the food!

:: appetizers .. but prior to that we had sesame tofu under a layer of soft pumpkin puree served in a shot glass ::

:: i had the squid ink pasta ... which was a tad too salty but still nice nevertheless,

tuna carpaccio was excellent as was the the juicy prawn croquette ::

:: mains (top) ::

:: i had the Schnitzel ... was a lil too tough for my liking ...

the boys had the Seabass with mashed aubergine ... very well done ... absolutely tasty ::

:: dessert (bottom) ::

:: Panna Cotta with dried tomatoes + basil ice-cream ...

i liked this cos its a very interesting concoction of PC using herbs ... which is really rare,

but YK didn't really enjoy it tho ..

Wilson's Bellini (champagne ice-cream) was more like a sorbet ... very nice and smooth ::
