[Food Review] Arossa Singapore

Arossa is located at Scotts Square, #02-01
Arossa is a grill and wine bar concept restaurant, helmed by a very passionate female Japanese Chef Chiaki Watanabe. Touted as "the new hotspot in culinary experience in the heart of Orchard Road", Chef Watanabe offers diners simplicity in her food without compromising on delectable tastes. As the restaurant name suggests, Arossa serves up classic grilled cuisine with fresh seasonal ingredients sourced from Australia and New Zealand.

Arossa's open concept kitchen.
Arossa offers diners a classy yet cosy and relaxing ambience. A wonderful place for a quiet intimate dinner date with your partner or chill with a small gathering of close friends. The view along Scotts Road is especially wonderful in the evening, to people watch as the day winds down.


We started off our evening with a thirst quenching cocktail, Moscow Mule. If you like a tangy and refreshing punch with your vodka - this one is a must-try. 1-for-1 at $15 or $18 ala carte.
Complimentary freshly made artisan bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar dip.
  ANTIPASTI (Appetizer)

An appetizer is not an appetizer without calamari! Deep fried squid lightly coated in flour and spicy aioli dip. Good for sharing, but always never enough. Very addictive! $21.

I am not a cheese lover but this appetizer left me quite speechless. Burrata cheese is fresh Italian cheese, made from mozeralla and cream - hardly any hint that it's cheese at all! It has a rich tasting and an unusual soft and slightly chewy texture, topped with basil pesto. If you love mozzarella, ricotta, or anything creamy, this cheese is for you. $34.

SECONDO (Main Course)

Tonno is an exceptional meaty blue fin tuna fish with a subtle flavor that has proven to be best eaten grilled. As with a person who wonders how this would taste, I will honestly say it tastes like chicken. It does! Except, the flesh is 3 times more tender and hardly a hint that you are having tuna. It is accompanied with caponata, a Sicilian style cooked vegetable salad. A very healthy option. $36.

The highlight of our dinner must be this succulent ribeye steak. Grilled to perfection, it is tender and juicy on the inside with an all natural flavor that we like. Go for medium rare for the best tasting steak! I couldn't get enough of it. 250g - $70.

Arossa prides itself for offering an amazingly extensive and exclusive wine menu, mostly from Australia and New Zealand. We were recommended to pair our ribeye steak with this soft, medium bodied red wine - '09 Cascina Bruni, Barolo Marialunga, Piedmont, Italy at $16/glass. If you are unsure about what kind of wine to consume, the restaurant managers would be more than happy to recommend suitable wines to pair them with your meals. (Last I heard, it's their expertise!)  
 
DESSERT

Rejoice! All you tiramisu lovers out there! This is probably one of the best tasting all time favorite desserts in town. This is Arossa's signature coffee flavored Italian dessert and truly deserves all the rave. $14.

Another must-try side dish in this restaurant which I didn't manage to take photo of :
Truffle mash potato - $12
Very smooth and creamy to perfection. I loved it to the moon and back.

Thank you, Arossa Singapore for having us over to dinner.
