Dinner at Symmetry Cafe

I had lunch here just slightly over a week ago, and now I'm back again with a different party to try their dinner menu.

The cafe is almost full house at 6.50pm on a weekday, we were lucky to have a confirmed reservation. Walk in customers were all seated at the bar table.

The complimentary Amuse Bouche (welcome appetizer), just simply grapes on crushed ice.

This place serves a premium french style dinner menu at night, that is pricier than lunch or brunch during the day. Dishes are updated every now and then.

After some contemplation, we decided to order one main course each and two sides to share. For drinks, I ordered my fave Hot Chocolate w/ Marshmallows $6.50++ again. This time round, I requested for latte art on my chocolate drink and the barista obliged, the marshmallows were served on the side. cute right?

My friend's cocktail Symmetric $22++, a concoction of fruity strawberry and passion fruit juices and vodka. Cool presentation! Taste not bad too.

Wakame Prawn Popcorn $17++, served with wasabi remoulade sauce. Although slightly different from the lunch menu ones, they are equally addictive to eat.

Asparagus & Bacon sticks $20++, served with perfectly poached egg and smokey hickory sauce. The snacks are basically asparagus and bacon strips wrapped in popiah skin and deep fried till crispy. Simple to prepare but full of wow factor! Whoever created this was quite a genius...highly recommended.

My Baby Barramundi $38++, a whole seabass fish deep fried till crispy and topped with lobster bisque sauce, seafood gazpacho and baby potatoes. While the fish meat was tender and the sauce was good, there's too little sauce to give enough flavor for the entire fish. I had to ask for chili sauce to dip the tasteless fish meat not covered by the sauce to make it palatable. Hmm...I wouldn't order this again.

My friend's Symmetry Hamburger $29++, served in sesame buns with beef cheek, chorizo, foie gras, caramelized onions and beetroot. It comes with truffle fries and mesclun salad. My friend was very happy with her tender beef cheek and creamy foie gras gourmet burger.

That sums up our pleasant dinner experience at Symmetry. We are already talking about a brunch outing to try out their popular weekend brunch menu, which is completely different from their lunch and dinner menus. I just have to eat that waffle again..
