Bringing its own brand of shiny sophistication to Dempsey Hill, Moonbow’s Modern European cuisine with Asian influences looks just the ticket for smart locals in search of a little refinement. It’s a romantic place best experienced at night when tall ceilings, muted tones and flattering lighting are all seen to best effect.
A passionate ceramist, triathlete and celebrated local chef, Heman Tan, has got together with Dylan Soh with this new 2021 operation and locals seem to approve.
For starters you may decide between fine de Claire oysters with yuzu gel, cucumber pearl and, for a bit of added texture, yuzu granita, or seared wagyu beef with purple mustard and truffle shoyu.
Looking for some artistry from humble everyday ingredients? Look no further than a dish that incorporates fresh heirloom tomatoes, marinated heirloom tomatoes, heirloom tomato paper, with an aged 3 years balsamico pipette and balsamic foam. The same trick is performed with beetroot: golden, pickled baby, beetroot cream, gel and powder, topped off with beetroot chips.
There's seafood paella of an elevated kind as well as filet of Norwegian salmon with the lightest of batter, mashed edamame, and potato 'rocks' pepped up with honey mustard and tartar dips. Stay on trend with 'Heman-zing' meatless, plant-based chic-ken roulade or opt for the real thing with grilled beef flat iron steak, served with a foie gras port wine jus and a tian of tomatoes.
Nice bar and a patio dining area add further plus points.
