Winter menu at AVA Restaurant Slash Bar

It was my first time at AVA hence I was mesmerized by the beautiful views of the harbour.
Went there for the winter menu which costs $628 per person or an extra $250 with wine pairing which I did not opt for.

Started with bread and the famous tricolour butter made by AVA.
There was pesto, garlic and tomato butter.

Quinoa with avocado mousse wrapped in eggplant mixed salad:

The salad was good especially the greens because the salt in it made it tasty.
As for the eggplant, they had a smokey charred taste and aroma.

Cream of morel mushrooms soup with fresh cream:
Wine: Casa Lapostolle Chardonnay 2011


The soup was good but I found it a bit too creamy.

Risotto with shrimps & Saffron topped with caviar
Wine: Casa Mentelle Sauvignon blanc semillon

The risotto was nicely done because the grains of rice were al-dente covered in rich creamy sauce which was balanced by the saltiness of the caviar.

Slow cooked beef wagyu cheek
With herbs and white wine , mash, veg
Wine: Chateau gemeillan medoc cru bourgeois 2011

The beef cheek was a bit dry for my liking and not gelatinous.

Granny apple & rum raisin crumble with vanilla sauce
Wine: bottega prosecco DOC NV

For dessert, we finished with this apple crumble which was jazzed up by rum.
