Osia Bar and Restaurant at Resorts World Sentosa

‘Cooking with Friends’ makes a comeback to Osia and have invited Australian Chef Tim Montgomery to represent his signature dishes to his guests at the restaurant, for a limited time from today till this Saturday 19th July 2014


Chef Tim Montgomery was singled out as the South Australian Chef of the Year and recently taken on the Executive Chef roles at Berardo’s Restaurant and the Noosa International Food & Wine Festival.

Diners can look forward to the exquisite set dinner menu put up together by Chef Tim and Osia restaurant. Prices of the 3, 4, 5 courses dinner start from $90++ onwards.

This was my first visit to Osia, and I had the pleasure to attend this special tasting with my fiancee.

We were welcomed by the warm hospitality of Yun Kai, the restaurant manager and his team at Osia

Yun Kai walked us both to our table and thoughtfully explained what we would be expecting for the evening’s dinner. 

The first few photos above showcases the restaurant interiors of the Osia. As we arrived at the restaurant early, there were no other guests around so I grabbed the opportunity to “tour around” and took pictures of the restaurant.

Osia Signature drink – Ginger Beer 

We decided not to have any wine or cocktails, the restaurant manager told us that he will come up with something special for us. He came back with two tall glasses of freshly grated Ginger Beer, and sweetened with granulated sugar. This bold drink was well chilled and refreshing, a wholesome and healthy alternative. Thank you Yun Kai for the great recommendation. 

Cauliflower Soup – Quail Scotch Egg, Pickled Mushroom, Truffle

We started our first 3-course with a soup and it was really magical seeing how things were beautifully presented to our table. 

When I first read cauliflower soup on the menu, in my mind I was thinking about the plain Chinese version of cauliflower soup which my dad used to cook for me when I was a kid. 

I had doubts on how different and special the cauliflower soup could be, and I was proven wrong. 

This recipe is an oldie but a goodie, Chef Tim worked it great by using simple recipe with some fine twist. On this very night, I never complained about cauliflower soup, because this soup was really so good. 

Stone Hearth Flat Bread with Macadamia Pesto, Truffled Kalamanta Olive – Served with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Butter, Dip ($11 Ala Carte)

Osia’s stone hearth flatbreads are free form loaves that are freshly baked upon order using a wood fired oven. The bread has a delightfully crisp crust, airy and chewy bite. 


You can choose from a variety of toppings, and a number of accompaniments from butter, extra virgin olive oil or Bush Tomato, one of Osia’s signature “toothpaste” tube dips.
Sea Bass – Brandade, Organic Egg, Smoked Potato Espuma, Avruga


Eggs and Potatoes played a big part in this dish as they were Chef’s Tim favourite comfort food, and he told us that he got his inspiration from his mom. 

Being a big fan of eggs and potatoes, this dish will never go wrong. Chef Tim cleverly turned a sea bass into a cod fish; from it’s firm looking appearance to it’s succulent and tender texture, you can never tell this was actually a sea bass. There were exciting moments of “Oh my god that glorious flow of yolk” when we broke the egg apart, enough said. 

Cherry Ripe – Chocolate, Cherry, Coconut

Cherry Ripe Chocolate, a decadent mousse based dessert reinvented from the classic Australian chocolate bar “Cherry Ripe”. 

Rich chocolate mousse, covered with layers of chocolate dust, desiccated coconut, brandied cherries and jelly, topping off with a lump of coconut sorbet and chocolate twigs. This no bake dessert is such a big hit to me, I would not mind having another serving.



VERDICT
Excellent hospitality with superb culinary dishes and menu curated by Chef Tim Montgomery and Osia.

For a limited time only and a Not-to-be-missed special dining experience at Osia, I strongly recommend you call up for reservations.

Thank you Cheryl for the invite and team Osia for the wonderful efforts.
