mezza9 at Grand Hyatt Singapore has recently launched its new set lunches, and fans of the prized restaurant will be delighted to know that new options are aplenty, including a healthier four-course set menu consisting of just 600kcal. It is always lovely to dine at a familiar outlet, and even better when the chefs are always pushing their boundaries to introduce new creations to excite your palate.
On top of the introduction of new set lunches, mezza9 also wows its crowd once again with many new ala carte dishes, all of which are true to their philosophy of dishing out earnest cuisine with sustainable ingredients to please the soul.
For so many years, mezza9 has been a perennial favourite, and with this wave of new introductions, it gives us many more reasons to go back. Regulars will share our joy, but if you aren’t already a fan, here are some temptations:
To kickstart, we shall start with the grand Lobster Set (S$50), a comforting indulgence of wok-fried chilli lobster with Chinese noodles accompanied by Steamed Prawn Dumpling and Seaweed Soup. Nothing too fanciful, nothing too complicated; just good, hearty Chinese food prepared in simple ways that do not mask the pureness of the premium ingredient.
And because we are such fans of the commendable Thai chef of mezza9 and how he has won the hearts of many loyal diners with his culinary skills, we were particularly excited about what he had to impress this time round. Indeed, his Thai Green Chicken Curry Set (S$35) lived up to our expectations. A superb rendition of our favourite Thai Green Chicken Curry is really what you need for lunch, alongside homemade crispy Thai Fish Cakes and a sweet ending of Thai Jelly in Coconut Cream.
Other set lunches include a Lamb Set that comes with a main of shepherd’s pie, a healthy set of minestrone and salad and char-grilled sustainable New Zealand salmon, and of course, a representative from everyone’s favourite Japanese kitchen – the yakitori set with seaweed salad and daily sashimi.
Among the ala carte dishes, we recommend the Chicken Liver Pate plated with pickled chaneterelle mushrooms, onion confit and toasted brioche; a 300g Kurobuta Pork Belly perfectly matched with granny smith apple stew, as well as the Nicoise Salad.
The Nicoise Salad, in particular, deserves a special mention. While it is not an option that particularly excites the majority, mezza9′s Nicoise Salad is the best that we have ever sampled in Singapore. What we love so strongly about mezza9 is its emphasis on quality – and in particular for the salad, the use of seared sustainable yellow fin tuna is a brilliant way to elevate the dish’s sweetness. Coupled with free range eggs, the freshest vine tomatoes in pretty reds and yellows, and leafy greens, this is one filling portion that makes an ideal lunch. We foresee many ladies falling in love.
And nobody, we repeat, nobody should ever leave mezza9 without having the Dessert Platter (S$32). Grand Marnier soufflé, Grand Cru Chocolate Mousse with warm chocolate sauce, pavlova, three scoops of homemade gelato and the stunning Flower pot dessert that comes with chocolate soil, mint leaves, flowers berries and caramel sea salt ice cream. Who says you can’t have the best of all worlds?
