<Foie Gras Terrine With Strawberry & Miso Sauce>
Less is more always apply on French dining. Such dish is rich and well complimented with a hint of sourness from the strawberry and the miso sauce to give an extra kick to the creamy foie gras.
<Normandy Oyster With Shiso Marinade>
Decent size of Normandy oysters, briny yet beautifully meaty and juicy and well paired with the shiso Marinade.
<Beef Tartare, Burattina, Blueberry, Roasted Hazelnut>
A munchy and chewy texture on the palate from the small diced and well marinated beef tartare as well as the Burattina cheese that taste like Mozzarella cheese. The aroma of the hazelnut is the additional touch to the entire dish to complete the entire palate.
<Beetroot Salad With Smoked Eel, Raspberry & Parsley>
A rather juicy salad from the combination of fruits used that give you a balance ends from the sweetness of the beetroot and the sourness of the raspberry that complimenting the smokey flavour of the eel. The hint of bitterness of the parsley round of the 'Tastes of Life" comes from all different delights.
<Atlantic Cod, Black olive sauce, Cabbages, Lemon>
Another less is more creation to taste the ingredients of its best from origin. Beautifully cooked Atlantic cod.
<Racan Pigeon, Hazelnuts, Poivrade Artichokes, Choy Sum>
There is nothing will go wrong when you have gaming dish on the French menu. Here in Upper Modern Bistro is with no exception. The flawless Racan Pigeon is to dine for and you only would want for more. Hazelnuts reduction juice is the perfect match for gaming dishes without overpowering the taste of the bird.
The cheese plate is a must order with or without the dessert offered. The variety and quality of cheese is second to none There are three different sizes of plates to choose from, it is all depends on how many chesses you wish to enjoy. So many contrasting palates to be found with these cheeses such as Brillat Savarin, Buche de gers, Pave de la Ginstarie, Saint Marcellin, Melleux du Revard, Comte Exceptionelle, Soumaintrain and Roquefort and this cheese plate could be a meal in itself, with every cheese in peak condition and ready to be savoured with every crumbly bite.
As the brunch comes with a glass of champagne, we have to highlight the superb drop that is poured, under the label of Nicolas Deneux no less – the restaurant groups Chief Sommelier. This is a complex, medium-bodied champagne that punches way above its weight and is an absolute steal when compared to more famous labels. It is the best way to indulge for a lazy weekend especially with such superb menu pairing.
