Located in the National Museum of Singapore, fine dining Flutes is one of the most delightful yet underrated restaurants along Orchard Road. It stuns with a gorgeously elegant setting that cleverly combines contemporary touches with colonial architecture. The contemporary European fare here is consistently good, with pretty presentation to boot. Service is prompt and personable, and pricing is keen, especially for weekday set lunches and Sunday brunch on an a la carte basis.
From the a la carte menu, have the pan fried foie gras delectably paired with pineapple and chocolate, and the ravioli filled with wagyu oxtail and foie gras. For mains, the pan-roasted barramundi fillet is gently crisp outside, firm yet juicy within, and nicely paired with chargrilled octopus and jamon Iberico. The wagyu striploin with artichokes, mushrooms and potato mille feuille is perfectly done with classic autumnal flavours, while the Spanish suckling pig with scallop and white beans is flawless technically, if a little gamey.
DonÂt miss the truffle shoestring fries on the side. For desserts, the lemon meringue and chocolate mousse with peanut butter caramel mousse and peanut praline is a lovely indulgence.
*Good to note: Flutes offers a wide range of wines andcocktails. Go for the bottles, many of which are under $100.
