A Dining Experience
Words & Pictures by Joyce
Before I start I should probably have one of those disclaimer thing-y about how I'm not a food professional and neither do I have an award-wining-refined-*Michelin starred*-palette. I just enjoy food and I do appreciate dishes that are well thought out and properly executed. So all of these are my two cents...
Last week, my sister and I went to KULTURE for dinner. It was of those sister bonding nights and we were feeling fancier than usual. My family has been to KULTURE quite a few times and we usually order the JOM MAKAN (It's like a 6-8 course set, highly highly HIGHLY recommend ordering this if it's your first time visiting the place)
We started off with a salad. My personal favourite would be the Scallop Ceviche but we hadn't tried the Umai Sashimi, plus lots of people were raving about it so we ordered that instead. I would say this comes in at a close second for me, still love the scallops.
TANGY + REFRESHING
Thats probably the best way to describe this dish. For the price, you definitely get a fair portion of fish. I think it really was a perfect way to start off the night. KULTURE serves their food according to courses, so you should probably bear that in mind if you plan to dine here. There needs to be some time allocated, not the place to go if you're rushing.
However, it's not too long a wait. Perfect for chats, catch ups and *hint hint* dates. (Valentine's is just around the corner)
There are a couple of memorable mains, the beef char siew is probably the most popular but I love the beef check curry. The sauce is super balanced, it's like creamy with a tinge of spice. I really don't have the grammar to explain food...
It's nice okay.
For all the fish lovers, you can't go wrong with this dish. I have to admit though, the consistency of the sauce is thicker than it used to be and I do prefer when it was lighter. However, overall it's a great dish. It's a little pricey considering the options for the other meats but I feel like because all the dishes are so 'heavy flavoured' (is that even a term?), this one sort of is the lightness you need.
I've tried the Ayam Masak Merah prior to this and found it to be pretty good too, the chicken is tender but I'd still pick the beef as the winning meat. K-Pop lambs are a good choice too though it's not as meaty, but the flavours are out of this world.
Moving on to my favourite part of the meal.
I wasn't expecting to love the coconut dessert as much as I actually did, it has 5 different textures of coconut. (Coconut foam, coconut ice cream, coconut shavings, coconut santan and coconut meringue. It's really rich, I'd recommend sharing this dessert to avoid getting coconut out.
Pris and I found that the Milo Tiramisu paired really well with the Textures of Coconut because the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate really cuts through all that coconut sweetness. The Milo Tiramisu is definitely hands down my favourite thing at Kulture. If you like chocolate, this is definitely the dish for you.
Also, make sure you try the Cendol 2.0!
