Oscar’s – 55 Dishes for $55 [MEDIA INVITE]

Beef Bulgogi
In celebrations of Singapore 55th Birthday, Oscar’s at Conrad Centennial Singapore has prepared an epic line up of 55 dishes for $55++. You will be spoilt with choices from the combination of local and international flavours, unlimited and served to your table. 

Check out the full menu with the pictures here

The Menu
Highlights of the spread include (shown in the picture is portion for 1 person): 
Frutti Di Mare Platter. A crowd-pleaser for diners at Oscars. On the plate are oysters, prawns, mussels and snow carbs. The oysters were plump and juicy, while the prawns were sweet, solid and bouncy. The flesh snow crab is slightly salty from the brine.

Crab Kueh Pie Tee. The “Atas” Kueh Pai Tee. It has a crispy exterior, filled with braised turnip and topped crab meat and garlic aioli. The garlic flavour in the aioli is very subtle, making the sauce taste more like mayonnaise.

Shiso Leaf Taco is a must-try. The combination of shiso leaf, smoked duck, plum sauce, yellow aioli and togarashi feels like having party in your mouth. You got salty, savoury, creamy and slightly bitter flavour combine with a juicy and velvety texture. Absolutely Delightful!

Beef Bulgogi. Served with 63ºC Egg Don, pickles furikake and signature sauce. The beef is succulent beef and nicely marinated with bulgogi sauce. When you mix all the ingredients, the sous-vide egg gave the dish the extra creaminess and bind it all together. If they use the pearl rice instead of long-grain rice, this dish will be perfect.

Whipped Burrata, heirloom tomatoes, kalamata olives, caper berries and sea salt. Not a fan of olives, however, we fully appreciate the creaminess of the burrata and the sweetness from the heirloom tomatoes, plus the twist of saltiness that comes from sea salt at the bottom of the bowl. 

Whipped Burrata
Roast Rib Eye, cracked pepper jus, mashed potatoes and grilled broccoli. A juicy succulent rib eye, with thick mash potatoes and cracked pepper jus. The bitterness from grilled broccoli provided a balancing factor in this rich classic dish. We had a repeat for this dish, thus you kind of know that how yummy it was. 

Roast Rib Eye
Spaghetti and Lobster Aglio Olio. Al-dente spaghetti cooked with hot chilli peppers sauce, topped with lobster meat and tobiko. The spiciness in the pasta just hits the right spot, while the lobster and tobiko bursting sweet and umami combo. If you like cheese lover, don’t miss out on their Calamarata Cream Wild Mushroom Truffle Alfredo pasta.

For the taste of the Peranakan, the Ayam Buah Keluak with steam rice here worth your stomach space. The buah keluak sauce is thick, robust and loaded with buah keluak, while the slow cooking process infused the flavour nicely to the chicken. Even LD, a big fan of ayam buah keluak give her two thumbs up.

Sliders. While the Pulled Pork Slider is superb, don’t miss out on Oscar’s Mumbai Kheema Pav Slider. The slider version of iconic Mumbai street food. Kheema Pav is a spicy mutton mince, slow-cooked with spices. It is usually served with buttered Pav, however, in Oscar’s it is stuffed in between the slider brioche bun and topped with onion, coriander and lime foam. Yummy!!

Desserts. Make sure you leave some space for desserts. This round we tried their Signature Classic Crème Brûlée, Strawberry Short Cake in A Jar, Chendol Gula Melaka Mousse, Mini Macaroon and Chocolate Praline, Sorbet and Potong Ice Cream. 

Signature Classic Crème Brûlée

Strawberry Short Cake in A Jar
The crème brûlée is thick and creamy. The crusted sugar on top is very thin, lightly torched. I prefer it to be torched longer. I find the slight bitterness from the burnt part offset the rich creaminess in the pudding. Meanwhile, the strawberry shortcake is delightful and the mini macaroons and chocolate praline are intense in flavour. 

Mini Macaroon and Chocolate Praline
I also tried the Potong Ice Creams as it was in theme to celebrate Singapore National Day. I would give the durian potong ice cream a miss as the durian flavour is very artificial. The red bean flavour is decent. If you like durian, stick with the D24 durian puff.
