[Media Invite] Wine Bonanza

Albert court, I am not sure if it sounds familiar to you. I used to reside in the area of Little India. Each time I made my way back from Orchard, the bus route would definately pass by Selegie and just slightly further down the road, will be where Albert Court is located (On the right). To be exact, it's in the same area where Village Hotel Albert Court by Far East Hospitality is. If you are taking public transport, apart from the public buses, Albert Court is a stone's throw away from Rochor Mrt (DT13 Exit A)

Regardless if you are a local or a tourist, Wine Bonanza, located right in the heart of the bustling town, is perfect for the after-work unwind, chilling over glasses of wine and a selection of gourmet food within it's rustic, laidback ambience piped in with relaxing music. From the exterior, it looks like it only sells wine but nope! Do step in and ask for their menu! Have a look at their menu on their selection of modern fusion cuisine.

The restaurant seats indoor up to 60 guests and there is one dedicated private room that seats up to 10 guests or 20 guests mix stading and an alfresco dininig which seats up to 30 guests or 60 pax standing. Sounds great for a cosy group for any celebrations!

These are some of the gourmet dishes we tasted, for the appetizer, fresh and juicy Irish Oysters, slurped them down with a dash of tabasco!

Irish Gallagher Premium Oysters
Hendricks Gin Cucumber Relish, $21 (Half dozen) 

The lobster bisque was flavourful based on a strained broth of crustaceans but would be even better if the consistency is thicker.   

Lobster Bisque, $18 

I have never liked to eat octopus and totally dislike the chewiness and the terrifying sight of those tentacles. This restuarant is the only place as far as I know, I will return for it, Octopus Carpacio.

Octopus Carpacio, $17 

The tender octopus legs were from Spain, thinly sliced  and topped with cress and radish. Homemade balsamic reduction is drizzled to add a smoky flavour to it. It was so tender and it tasted like the texture of chicken meat. I will be back for it ! 

If you are a vegetarian, Aged Italian Bean Puree Beignet with Truffle Mayo is recommended. The bean beignet were covered with breadcrumbs, deep fried with a perfect golden brown crus and topped with specially made truffle mayo. I find the taste pretty unique and will stimulate your appetite, asking for more.

Aged Italian Bean Puree Beignet with Truffle Mayo, $15

If you love truffle, you will love this simple yet satisfying linguine pasta. Another excellent choice for vegetarians. I am loving the creamy truffle sauce to bits! The smell of truffle was heavenly! The linguine pasta is cooked in creamy truffle sauce, topped with a medley of shitake and button mushrooms. Perfect !

Truffle Mushroom Cream Pasta, $24  

This is pretty delectable too and I think children will love this. 

Four Seasons Pasta

Grilled Halibut to go for if you are looking at a lighter meal.  This dish is just like a plate of art, I love how it was being presented. It was tender and succulent, smeared it with Arrabiata sauce. However, I hope it was just for this tasting, I gave this a thumbsdown for its fishy smell.

Grilled Halibut, $26

Next was Beef Stew. Presented in a nice plating, with mini carrots and garlic confit puree by the sides. Ask the staff for recommendation and pair this dish with a glass of red wine. This palatable brisket is braised for 8 hours with carrots, bacon, mushrooms in red wine sauce. The meat was really tender after the hours of braising.

Beef Stew, $26 
I would prefer a minty + baileys cocktail over wine as I am not a wine person. They called this a cocktail milkshake which captures a balanced blend of liquor and ice-cream. With the minty taste in it, it certainly delighted me. We were warned one glass may not get us knock-out but no one will guarantee after a second cup. Go for this if you are giving wine a miss! 

We completed the meal with a serving of Bread and Butter Pudding. Heh, I have a weakness for Cinnomon ! The cinnamon flavoured pudding mixed with Brioche Bread, topped with a dollop of ice-cream is one of the best dessert one can have. This is another drawing factor for a next visit. 

Bread and Butter Pudding, $9
