Tucked away in a shophouse along Jln Besar is a new hidden gem – Subrosa which is essentially a farm-to-table private dining restaurant that values bringing in the freshest ingredients straight from the source right to their kitchen within 48 hours, such as their locally-grown lobsters and their in-house herb garden. Don’t belittle this new private dining space because many high profile individuals (from the royal family in Britain to the local celebrities at Mediacorp) have already #triedandtestedandapproved the creations by the very experienced Executive Chef! If you want the very best for your partner, then you have to treat him/her to an impressive five or seven course experience set based on the season’s freshest produce.

Since Mother’s Day is just around the corner, you can definitely consider treating your mum to a lavish dinner at Subrosa! To avoid disappointment, it’s best to make a reservation with them soon!

Artisan Bread Selection
Breads are all baked in house and the Garlic Bread was so good! Garlic flavour wasn’t too overpowering and the bread was really moist. Paired it with the truffle butter for maximum pleasure! Already so impressed with their artisan breads!

Fresh is Best
I’m so amazed at the plating of this dish! So pretty I couldn’t bear myself to eat it. Scallop was really fresh and I really liked the sauce which has a nice citrusy alongside a hint of spice! I was literally licking the sauce away! #sorrybutnotsorry

The Cocktail
The aerated shrimp has a bold/strong flavour which some of you might not be used to it, thus the bloody Mary tomatoes on the side to neutralise it. But I thought I really liked the strong flavour of the shrimp and yes, they were really generous with the crabmeat at the bottom!

Quaking Cod That
Cod fish was well-cooked – not too fishy or oily. Texture was really nice and the fried onions brought an extra crunch to the overall dish! Oh yes! the duck consommé was really flavourful!

Lychee & Peppermint Sorbet
This must be the tastiest palate cleanser I’ve ever come across before our mains! Sorbet was really light and refreshing! So tempted to ask for more! haha!

Whats up Duck
Cured Duck was amazing! Tender and not gamey at all! Really nothing to complain about this dish!

Remember Mee
A creative and delicious twist to our favourite local food – Hokkien Mee. The rendition at Subrosa is really refreshing and for once, I’m willing to finish the entire plate of noodles even though I usually skip carbs! Noodles had a nice texture and the broth was AMAZING! Also, so generous with the lobster meats! Trust me, your eyes will sparkle once you take a bite!

Tropical Passion
When you have all your favourite fruits in a plate! This desserts really represents Singapore well – tropical and thus you need a refreshing dessert to beat the heat. You have a balanced flavour of coconut (my fav), mango, lime and passionfruit!
