Besides revolving around the concept of local cuisine, Sky22 also ensures that their dishes are healthy and flavourful. Definitely guilt-free while feasting on these delicious food!
‘Nasi Ulam’ Wild Rice Salad
This was my first time trying Nasi Ulam and I like it a lot. There wasn’t really any distinct flavour but the whole combination was really impressive! The charred octopus was flavourful and chewy. Overall, a refreshing appetiser!
Oven-Baked Camembert Cheese
The Portobello mushroom was definitely well-seasoned. Sourdough was well-toasted (not too tough). Paired with the melty Camembert cheese, cheese-lovers will go really high!
Singapore Chilli Crab Pizza
Thin crusted Pizzas are my favourite! Chilli Crab sauce on the pizza was sweet and spicy and they were really generous with the chilli crab meat on the pizza. Highly recommended!
Prosciutto & Belgian Endive Salad
What attracted me the most in this bowl of salad was the roasted Japanese pumpkin. It was so sweet and I finished all of them.
The Iberico pork was well-marinated and well-cooked. It was flavourful and the meat was firm (but not too tough). Chinese spinach was really nice too.
Pan-seared Red-spotted Grouper
This was my favourite dish at Sky22! The fish was cooked to perfection, with a slight crisp on the skin and the meat very melty. Paired with the Sambal Olek and Tumeric Coconut Cream, I can eat two of this dish myself!
Purple Potato Gnocchi
My least favourite dish of all at Sky22. Didn’t quite like the combination. Only the purple potato works for me!
Tiger Prawn Laksa
The Laksa was so aromatic, could already smell it when it’s a distance away! Laksa was really flavourful, with strong coconut flavour. It wasn’t very spicy and they were really generous with the ingredients they served! Chilli padi was amazing!
Sky 22 Bubur Cha-Cha Cup
Ending the meal perfectly with this refreshing deconstructed Bubur Cha-Cha which blew everyone away. The dessert wasn’t overly sweet. By the way, the ice cream is really good!
So, dine with a view at Sky22 at the all-new Courtyard Marriott Singapore Novena today!
