Located in the busy Central Business District, Froth is a restaurant that serves Asian Fusion dishes. The restaurant is on the second level of Ascott and has a really warm and calm ambience, perfect for a date or a place to celebrate one’s birthday. On level one is the Froth Bar, which serves wines, spirits and beers.
One of the special things here at Froth is that they refresh their lunch menu every quarter. I love how they continue to develop new dishes to intrigue new customers.
I know this is like unhealthy because it’s basically luncheon meat but, who cares? Indulge once a while in the Spam Fries that really stood out from others with the truffle mayonnaise dip at the side. It was so fragrant and allows for 2 flavours in one dish, I honestly couldn’t find any fault with this dish.
Price: $8.90 (small, this size)/ $13.90 (large)
Who doesn’t love anything bacon? This Bacon Chowder was just a bowl of perfection. The soup was thick with bits of bacon in every bite, finished with a drizzle of herb oil and a poached egg that is to be stirred into the soup. It was savoury and filling, which is why I recommend for it to be shared amongst 2. Trust me, you won’t regret getting this soup for an appetiser.
This dish might sound a lil peculiar, but it will remind you of a very familiar taste. That’s because the Doritos Crust Chicken was coated with Spicy Doritos! First things first, I love Doritos like L O V E. However, the confit chicken itself was pretty dry and if not for the Doritos, it was rather bland too. It was also a lil spicy because of the fact that used spicy Doritos, so I wished they used normal cheese Doritos instead. Still, the concept of the dish was really interesting and it worked.
A Singaporean twist on a familiar Italian dish is the Seafood Tom Yum Risotto which may sound odd but still held the creamy texture of a risotto. The risotto was slightly sour and spicy, compared to usual savoury risottos, but not too overpowering with tom yum. Topped with grilled tiger prawns, flower clams and squid, this dish is not only gonna fill you up but also give your taste buds an interesting experience. I appreciated how they peeled the prawns for lazy me too. Even though I do prefer having my usual type of risotto, this is really worth the try especially in the spirit of our Singapore National Day!
The Siobak Aglio was my winning dish like wow which one of us doesn’t love a good ol’ crispy skin, slow roasted pork belly? They also used my favourite type of pasta, linguine, for the base of this pasta dish. The pasta was springy and flavourful despite it being light. The aglio olio was the perfect option to go with the siobak. One thing I would change about this dish was the pork jerky on top which was a pretty weird element to the dish. It tasted like a caramelised bacon that was slightly burnt, but maybe it’s acquired? Despite that, the flavours in the 6 generous portions of siobak was on point.
End of your meal with a Taro Waffle which I also recommend sharing as it has a huge portion. The batter itself was taro flavoured as you can tell from the colour of the waffle. As it was drizzled with taro sauce, the waffles became soggy really quickly so do eat it fast too. It is served with a scoop of gourmet ice cream of your choice. We had ours with Earl Grey Ice Cream which had an amazing flavour on its own but didn’t compliment the taste of the taro waffle.
Price: $14.90 (+$4.90 for additional scoop)
Nothing beats a cup of Iced Chocolate (right) and it was the kind of Iced Chocolate you would expect.
If you’re a matcha lover, the Matcha Frappuccino Ice Blend (left) was a pretty okay choice but not the strongest of matcha taste, hence I didn’t feel it was really worth its price.
Price: $8.90 (left), $6.90 (right)
Taste: 4/5 (left), 5/5 (right)
