Bistro Soori - Good value set lunch

After looking at their lunch, dinner and brunch menu, I felt that the set lunch menu was the most value for money because essentially the food you're getting is similar but at a cheaper price! And lunch is from 11.30am-2.30pm, great for early eaters!!

The boy and I walked from Chinatown MRT station and the walk was quite fast! Umm about 10mins or so? If you need directions, I can help you! (:

2 kinds of bread
Mixed seed and wholemeal

Liked the seed one better! 

Butter with pepper bits! Note: they only have olive oil and not balsamic vinegar!

Karaage Fried Prawn, Cherry tomato, Kaffir Lime, Russian Dressing

This was good, light batter, not too oily, liked the Indian-ish tinge to this dish because it somehow tasted like lemongrass? Haha. Succulent juicy prawns!! 4.3/5

Scallop, pistachio, arugula, truffle, pear vinegar gelee

Scallops were a tad salty if eaten on its own with smothering it in the good truffle sauce! Loved the sour & sweet gelee! 3.5/5

Miso soup 

You cant choose the soup you want, it depends on the day! This was ok, lots of mushrooms though for such a small cup.

Fish of the day (butterfish), fennel, tamarind, thai basil

This was done pan-fried and boy was I glad to have ordered this instead of boring ol' salmon!! This was like cod fish, but less oily, flesh was definitely soft and super fresh!! The boy and I both loved it! Also liked the crunchy fennel and the yummy sauce! (: 4.7/5

Braised short ribs, polenta 

This somehow isnt in their menu on their website so I think the menu isnt updated? At first the boy was like "huh such a small piece ah *sad face*" but after he bit into one piece of the ribs, he gave a huge satisfied smile and went "mmmmm so soft!! THIS IS GOOD!" He happily ate the remaining piece of the ribs and yearned for more! He says he'll order it ala carte next time! (The ala carte lunch menu has the same items as the set lunch menu! Just that I guess, it has larger portions?) 5/5

Beautiful and relaxed interior of Bistro Soori. Makes me feel like I'm in a restaurant in Bali! Love how the sunlight illuminates the place so nicely and the clean minimalist feel of the place! The man there behind the counter is Chef Benjamin McBride! Quite friendly guy! The chefs really do prepare your food behind that counter so if you want to have a look, do ask for those seats!

Pandan Souffle, Strawberry

Look at that! Pretty & perfectttt. Dug into it like a happy kid and was glad it was airy, soft, quite strong pandan taste (reminded me of pandan waffles like those from prima deli haha), scrapped every last bit of it I could! The cookies were butter cookies, v crisp and light!! Evil because I could eat them all day. 4.3/5

Almond panna cotta, blueberry, lemongrass

This almond panna cotta isnt v strong unlike the chi desserts, firm but soft at the same time. Those nuts lend a nice crunch to this dessert! The boy was quite happy with this! 4/5

Service was definitely very good here, friendly, polite, water constantly refilled and nice atmosphere! (: Its quite near both Outram and Chinatown MRT! Nestled in the old shop house, wonderful neighbourhood to walk around after your meal (: Oh and set lunches are 39++!! Quite a few choices to choose from for appetisers, mains and desserts!
