Finally I get to try Glass Brasserie for dinner! I've only previously eaten here for the decadent breakfast buffet (one of the best I've had) and have been dying to try this place after rave reviews from numerous people I know. So on this Wednesday night we decided to try and avoid the peak period rush and dine here for dinner. It was surprisingly full for a Wednesday night and I was glad I made a booking.
The service here was impeccable and very deserving of its one chefs hat. From table sitting, menu explanation, timing of dishes, re-filling of table water and Luke Mangan himself was doing the rounds and chatting to the guests! Only gripe was a small error on the bill but it was very promptly rectified.
We went with 2 entrees, 2 mains, 1 dessert and 2 cocktails and this was way more than enough for the two of us. Especially with awesome housemade bread we got to start.
Fresh housemade bread with olive oil - two types of bread to start with, both equally tasty. Warm and fluffy on the inside and nice and crusty on the outside. We smashed these down before any of the entrees arrived.
Pimm's fruit cup - Pimms with fresh fruit, Cointreau and ginger ale - $16 - A pretty decent chicks drink. Light, refreshign and very fruity with little alochol taste. Basically tastes like fruit punch :D
Free range egg omelette of snow crab, enoki, mushroom and herb salad, miso mustard broth - $29 - First dish of the night and it was a freaking stunner! Recommended by Luke when he walked past our table, it definitely set the bar very very high for the rest of the night! The miso mustand broth was simply amazing. The only problem is there wasn't enough of it! The dish had an Asian feel to it with coriander, chili, enoki and other herbs. Inside the omelette it was choc full of crab meat.
Parmesan and truffle fries - $13 - you cannot go wrong with parmesan and truffle fries- nuff said
Coconut panacotta, pineapple, mango, rasberries, blueberries, fennel ~20 - By the time we ordered desserts, we were well and truly stuffed. Nonetheless, we just had to try one of the desserts. We chose the lightest sounding one and luckily this one was perfect. Kind of like a fruit salad with the different berries, mango and coconut flavours. It was very refreshing and a perfect end to the meal.
