很新穎的新加坡料理 店內氣氛也很棒不會有被干擾的感覺 非常享受的用餐體驗
Food was amazing at JL Studio!!! Driving down from Taipei for JL was worth it. We couldn't stop thinking about the food the next day, and we will definitely visit JL again soon. Just a few comments for future improvement. 1) For the play on 惹娘糕, the only taste we got was the marinated radish. As a scallop lover, it was a little disappointing that I couldn't taste the scallop. 2) Wine pairing was almost perfect except for the champagne, which had almost no sparkle. 3) We were supposed to get Valli Gibbston Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 for our final pairing, but we got Sato Pinor Noir 2017. We appreciated for the upgrade, but it would be nice to inform us ahead to avoid confusion.
Overall dinning experience was nice and joyful and will revisit if time allows
以下為個人觀點 以米其林二星這個等級來看 只有甜點及開胃菜有符合個人心目中的水準 缺點是以這個價格來說份量太少，沒有飽足感 前菜跟主菜都各只有兩道，風味也不夠堆疊有層次 跟國外水準有一段落差
I remember telling the person, who called to confirm my reservation, that I do not eat animal’s internal organs, but I still for a bowl of rice with beef stripes, etc.
個人11:20AM到現場,不得其門而入,打電話去餐廳,卻因為非上班時間無人接聽,苦等許久無法解除心中疑惑,或者應該在訂位資料裡就先跟顧客提一下,2樓的本餐廳入口是和1樓的它餐廳同一個,1樓的它餐廳會在11:30AM開始帶位,而2樓的本餐廳會在11:50AM座右才有人帶位,問1樓餐廳帶位服務生,也只是要我在旁邊等,完全沒有更進一步的說明.............這樣子我一個台北來的外地客很難知道入門技巧 !!!!! 一開始的用餐情緒就不好了~
All the soups are wonderful! Others are also good or excellent. A joyful night.
Excellent service and food, thank you. The environment was a little noisy and the interior decoration needs improvement.
米其林二星名副其實 作為東南亞菜系 師傅對香料的使用既大膽又令人眼前一亮 貫徹整個course的辛辣開胃 其中包括甜品冰沙中的胡椒 此外 牡丹蝦蝦醬在腥與鮮的邊緣取得平衡 入口略腥臭 但是回味後感覺得到蝦的鮮味 很有水平的餐廳
I had the pleasure of dining here on 4/4, we were met by a courteous staff at the front door and led to our table on the second floor. Besides the wait time until our reservation, we were escorted at every turn until we were seated, which was a nice touch and something that demonstrated the attention to detail that JL Studio offers. Upon being seated we were then greeted by our hostess for the meal, Sharon. She was exceptionally knowledgable and answered each of our inquiries with patience and professionalism. She was thorough and asked us if we had any dietary restrictions or preferences which she was able to accommodate, even halfway through the meal when I noticed on the tasting menu that there was something I didn't like. Sharon exhibited outstanding attention to detail, knowing exactly when during a conversation to set plates and when to refill our glasses, which I noticed since I saw her in a holding pattern with our refills while my companion and I were engaged in a conversation. The tasting menu was exquisite and even more exciting than anticipated, drawing from inspiration from Singapore, Jimmy crafted a delicate and elaborate menu which truly combined all aspects of Singaporean cuisine: elements that swirled you though the ocean and brought the flavorful freshness of the sea paired with lush greens that delivered you back to land, with reduction crafted from all aspects of the food itself, nothing was let to waste, a true virtuous art that encompasses Asian home cooking. Jimmy also demonstrated the complexity of Singapore with different elements from cultural cuisines found sprinkled across Singapore, with Indian spices and curry coupled with pumpkin bread showcasing the sharpness of the spices gently eased in with the depth of the loaf. The sous vide Wagyu with a sear finish was to die for, perfectly capturing the full range of taste from the beautiful cut partnered with traditional Singaporean seasoning, bringing this French technique home with a brilliant touch of cheekiness with green Samba hidden underneath perfectly touched zucchini. The coconut rice that accompanied was as delightful as it was essential to balance flavoring. No Singaporean chef worth their salt would forget to put Bak Kut Teh on the menu, and Jimmy did not only that but also exceeded expectations when he put a twist on a traditionally heavier dish: the core elements were all present and accounted for, while the traditional sides exchanged for a playful combination of mushrooms that provided the texture while keeping the dish light. The desserts proved to be not only Instagrammable but also irresistible, the plating and presentation showed color and warmth, even with the nitrogen flash frozen coconut which was a genius stroke(or spoonful if you will). The meal which was out of this world, could not have been complete without Sharon, who provided top notch service, and expert knowledge on the wine parings. Our experience at JL Studio has been an absolute delight, thanks to you. To Jimmy, Sharon and the whole staff at JL Studio, thank you for allowing us to be part of such a monumental culinary journey; I am certain my partner and I will be back for more, insatiably waiting for Jimmy Lin's next season menu.
Felt kind of chaos during queue at first floor.
