Do you seek adventure? Little did you know but it’s right near our doorstep, a Russian restaurant. A vintage $50000 bottle of 1841 wine lives somewhere in the premises that imagines itself in a far flung meadows and seas. Underneath the vintage European look, the menus are entirely modernized and presented on iPads (sadly they are not using Square payment system).
We chance upon the Singapore Restaurant Week special of lunch for $25++. What transpires is a melody of Borsch Soup followed by Herring in cream sauce and a Raspberry shortcake.
A real test of whether the premises are Russian would be whether they serve kvas ($8), a lightly alcoholic malt drink found commonly on the streets of ex-communist bloc countries, a drink of the common man. Heavily sedimented and freshly brewed on the premises. Water of life.
