ToTT Bistro Is Now Five Senses Bistro with New Dishes

At a time when some other "cafeteria" types of eateries are declining (IKEA, I'm looking at you), ToTT Store has significantly improved its offering. Its revamped bistro at Dunearn Road is now Five Senses Bistro, in collaboration with new F&B Director and Chef Andrea Lim.

Andrea blends Asian and European flavours based on Nordic cuisine principles of simplicity and freshness. He honed his French cooking techniques at Institute Paul Bocuse and cut his teeth at establishments like Raffles Grill and Les Amis. One thing you definitely notice is his passion for food, but what's great is he believes in making fine dining more affordable.

The Pan-Seared Pink Norwegian Salmon above (S$15.90) comes with a generous helping of vegetables and mash.

The Carbonara (S$8.90) is topped with a gently poached egg and lots of wispily shaved parmesan cheese. The 62-degree sous vide egg is a little more comforting (for me) than a raw egg.

Smoked Duck Breast Salad
The Smoked Duck Breast Salad (S$10.90) has honey mustard dressing, dried cranberries and chopped walnuts.

Oven Roast Holland Crackling Pork Belly
The Oven Roast Holland Crackling Pork Belly (S$15.90) is really tender but with crispy skin. The meat is recognisably sous vide treated, but it works here without making the meat mushy.

150 Days Grain-Fed Angus Braised Beef Cheek

The beef cheek has also been sous vide cooked, so it's really moist and tender.

Semi House Smoked Chicken Breast (Bacon-wrapped!)
The Semi House Smoked Chicken Breast (S$12.90) comes wrapped in bacon! It's a really hearty portion too.

Furikake Fries
But what we loved to nibble on most was the Furikake Fries (S$6.90) - crispy shoestring fries tossed with seaweed and bonito flakes as well as sesame seeds. We tried it with the spring onion dip that comes with drumlets, and it was even more sensational.

Chocolate Lava Cake
Chocolate Lava Cake (S$6.90)
I'm betting this is going to be the most popular dessert here. The lava cake does ooze generously when cut into.

Head Chef Chang Kar Fai (standing, centre) and F&B Director Andrea (background) are both amiably approachable. Andrea has his own restaurant Five Senses at Bedok Point, so you might be able to get some of the same dishes there too.
