Halia Menu Oyster Bar - Freshly shucked tempura  ponzu  baby spinach with Pernod , nutmeg  parmesan gratin

Done in 3 ways, i tried the tempura and ponzu oyster first. Lighty battered, it is crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Next was the freshly shucked oyster, super fresh and succulent. Lastly, i tried the baby spinach with Pernod , nutmeg & parmesan gratin oyster. Baked till perfection, it is absolutely delicious.
  
Pan-seared Hokkaido scallop, micro cress, garlic and gelee of apple extract – Fresh, juicy and refreshing.

Taittinger Cuvée Brut Réserve NV Champagne - Delicate with flavours of fresh fruit and honey with floral and vanilla fragrance.

Wine Pairing  - Astoria Casa Vittorino Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, Veneto Italy -  Intense, clean-cut and fruity
 
 
Seafood - Black and white sesame seed crusted blue fin tuna tataki marinated in soy, sautéed baby spinach, saffron cream sauce.

The farmed blue fin tuna cooked tataki style with a dash of soy is well seasoned and is so good on its own that you could skip the saffron cream sauce. I have to try the saffron sauce as its worth its weight in gold. Light and fragrant, it compliments the seared tuna  with its crunchy black and white sesame seeds.

Wine Pairing - Mount Riley Savée Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc 2009, Marlborough, New Zealand - Fresh and vibrant with aromas of white fruit, elderflower, gooseberry and melon. Great as an aperitif or with seafood. 
Meat - 300 days grain-fed Rangers Valley Black Angus tenderloin, truffle celeriac mash, panache of baby vegetables and red wine jus.
The Black Angus Tenderloin in red wine jus and the terrific truffle celeriac creamy mash is out of the world. Seared lightly on both sides, the beef retains its natural juiciness and every bite is ultra delectable.

Wine Pairing - Taittinger Cuvée Prestige Rosé NV Champagne – Fresh,  lively and full bodied with fresh aroma of crushed wild raspberries, cherries and blackcurrants

  
Dessert - Fresh baked fig tart, bacon pear ice cream, almond date, brie cheese, sour cream sabayon, wild mountain honey.


A self confessed dessert lover, i like how this dish is presented with both sweet and savoury creations.

The freshly sliced figs on the fragrant crispy thin tart pastry topped with light fragrant pear ice cream with a dash of bacon bits and drizzled with wild honey is decadent. A unique combination, i will not dream of having bacon ice cream as it would be too salty but this is done just right with the fig tart and a dab of the sour cream sabayon sauce is simply divine.
Halia Restaurant Singapore Fresh baked fig tart, bacon pear ice cream, almond date, brie cheese, sour cream

Complimenting the sweet dessert is a date encompassed in dark chocolate and crushed almonds and sits on the savoury brie cheese. This is another love as i adore cheese and chocolate.

Wine Pairing - Angove Chalk Hill Blue Bubbles Sparkling, South Australia -festive sparkling wine with yeast and fruity aromas amid luscious, strawberry fruit sweetness.
