[FT] - Sunrise Bistro & Bar

*Food Tasting*

Right by the bustling beaches of East Coast Park, There is a place laidback eatery for you to chill and relax your weekend away. Sunrise Bistro serves more than just morning meals, you can expect Bar Bites and Delicious Mains. Chef Vincent Teng experiments with all types of cooking, and he has a particular loving for Sous Vide cooking, creating tender mains and juicy grills. You can also expect Asian twists on modern European cuisine, along with pastas and pizzas galore. It's really an experience!

From the Bar, this beautiful cocktail - Pink Lady sure is as a lady's drink. All pink & bubbly, I enjoyed it! The accompanying Strawberry slices were a little tangy and slight alcoholic but very addictive!

To start the night - We've got Seafood Chowder Soup , Luncheon Chips - $8, Truffle Fries - $9 & Seared Foie Gras! I am not going to deny that the Seared Foie Gras - $19 stole the limelight. It is seared goose liver on brioche bread layered with mango. Absolute Bliss in my mouth and I would gladly enjoy another piece. The Seafood Chowder Soup - $12 is nothing like the usual chowders that we see, this one looks & taste more like a bisque. Chef Vincent wanted to make this starter light so that it prepares the stomach for more food later on!

Chef Vincent was very generous and he sliced open a Red Snapper and Fry it till crisp for the Sunrise Fish & Chips - $26! I felt that the flesh was a little on the dry side, but i love the crispiness of the skin and the mango salsa went so well together. 

The Cereal Crusted Cod Fish - $28. This dish had a very asian touch to it. It was served with seasonal vegetables braised in sesame oil and Ginger Shoyu Broth. I prefer this dish over the former and I personally love Cod fish plus the ginger shoyu broth made it taste rather homely. I love it!
Duck Confit - $28 is getting really common nowadays, but Chef vincent did his duck confit with Asian Spices! Now that's something new! Skin crispy flesh tender duck confit was really good, because the duck leg was sous vide for 8 hours, infused with asian spices. It is not like many others that I've had which were dry and unappealing.

This Marmite Canadian Pork Shoulder - $26 was really tender despite it being such a big chunk! I was really looking forward to the marmite flavour but it wasn't very strong, but the meat is very tender la!

Lastly is the BBQ Beef Short Ribs - $32, it is sous vide for 24 hours so it is really Tender and it is accompanied with their Homemade BBQ sauce, It taste to me like Char Siew Sauce, I dont know why. Haha! But you see ah, the Beef rib was sous vide for 24Hours and cooked further before it was being served to us and Yet the inside is still Pink and the meat was so tender. How does Chef Vincent do it? OMG!

Then it was dessert time, Haha. Yes, After so many mains! Now this dessert is very special! Can you tell what this is? This is Chef Vincent's Tiramisu Semi Freddo - $12, yes I understand your concern as well, Where got Tiramisu like this one? Well, Chef Vincent Semi Froze the Mascarpone Cheese layered with coffee liqueur jelly sponge topped with milo crunch with tuile biscuit and garnished with brandy soaked raisins. Very special right? Haha. 

Next up is the crowd favourite which is also very instagram worthy. It is the Salted Egg Yolk Custard Molten Chocolate Cake - $14. Yes, the name itself already very tempting. When you are getting this dessert, please get ready your phone to take video if you want to post to your social media because it is definitely very #foodporn worthy! Haha. I love how it is not Gelat and goes well with the Vanilla Ice cream! 

Overall my experience at Sunrise Bistro & Bar was really fun and the dishes have the power to pull me back. Please visit them as well, because there is live band on weekends! It would be a great place to chill with your friends or to catch the live streaming of soccer matches courtesy of Sunrise Bistro! Haha.
