Edge is a theatrical and interactive dining space. Enjoy a variety of delectable Asian and Pacific cuisines – including Chinese, Malay, Indian, Singaporean, Thai, Japanese and Pan Pacific’s signature “Pacific Cuisines" from the 7 open kitchens. The restaurant is very big, occupied the whole row.
I'm a super dessert lover so I really have to say, this is the first hotel that i encountered with disappointing desserts in terms of taste, variety and X'mas deco display.. especially on such an important day - X'mas Eve. I cannot imagine, the desserts on X'mas Eve were already like this, don't even mention on normal days...
The Crunchy Hazelnut Log Cake tastes very normal until you reach the middle crunchy part which is slightly nicer.
The Creme Brulee & Durian Pengat were not bad..
There were only 2 types of shooter glass (Oh My God..)
Too many berry desserts - Berry Shortcake + Blueberry Cake + Red Velvet + Cherry Tart (Again, Oh My God...) Too many similar taste of dessert will make people get sick of it.. The chef should have thought of this...
I would suggest to the chef that he can try to have more variety of different tastes; like the hot favourite Tiramisu, Mango, Durian, Earl Grey Chocolate, Pandan, Green Tea, Mocha or Coconut in cake style or in shooter glass.. Maybe can add popular tarts like Lemon Meringue.. Perhaps having 2 types of Log Cake as well? Hope the chef can improve the quality of the dessert and can be more creative by having different tastes in more variety.
Ok enough of the dessert review... Let's look at the Good Quality Food below!
A la Minute Grilled Items
Black Pepper Crab & Chilli Crayfish
Love the chicken satay so much! A simple chicken satay can cook until so nice!!
Grilled Sea Perch + Slow Cooked Salmon FilletI would like to strongly recommend this dish - Grilled Sea Perch! The taste was very good and quite tender, it would be excellent if i can be more tender!
Beef + Duck Leg Confit
BBQ Pork Ribs + Turkey Burger + Turkey Chestnut Stuffing
Clam Chowder + Cream of Pumpkin
Tradional Chawanmushi - Light and super super smooth!
Other than the above food, they still have Thai, Indonesian, Japanese and Indian food kitchen.
Overall the food quality here was really good except the desserts! The service here was not very good initially. We were neglected maybe due to outside seating.. No one clear our plates and offer us any drink until we feedback to the manager when he asked us how was the food. From there on, the service became very good! The staff kept refilled our champagne and cleared our plates regularly. Haha!
The X'mas atmosphere here was not strong, quite boring actually. No X'mas door gift given.. Santa Claus only gave each one a lollipop... Hope they can have more X'mas activity here!
