Presenting a new bistro in Singapore where you can enjoy gourmet delicacies such
as caviar and ebiko (shrimp roe) at accessible prices. Ta-Da! The Bistro has recently
opened at Bras Basah and boasts gourmet dishes such as Seaweed & Caviar Cold
Pasta ($16), Iberico Pork ($23.90), and Wagyu Striploin ($24.90).
The man behind the cuisine, Mr Ta Da, has been trained in France and hails from the
kitchen of Joël Robuchon. He brings his vast culinary experience to create a menu
with dishes featuring his unique spin on classic bistro flavours.
All the dishes are prepared in-house even bar grubs such as the Triple J Wings
($12) accompanied with a blue cheese dip. The Basilic Chips ($10) are a clear
winner with their fluffy texture and gnocchi-like shape, and can only be found at TaDa!
The Bistro. Pair these starters with the Happy Hour drink promotions and you’ve
got the perfect after-work hangout spot.
Casual date nights have never been easier. The chilled ambience is welcoming to
anyone who loves a gourmet meal without having to worry about fine dining
To add to the atmosphere, The Bistro is surrounded with black chalkboard walls that
have been decorated with hand drawings by their very own friendly staff. In one
corner you’ll find the menu and sights of Singapore, while on the other side, you’ll
find funny quotes and anecdotes from the owners, explaining the story of the cafe.
Bacon n Egg 10” Pizza $9.90, probably a hit with the kids, according to the cafe. They held a private birthday party for a 10 year old girl and this was the crowd favourite. Which leads me to wonder, if this is a casual dining cafe that offers alcohol, and also wants to captivate parents to hold children’s birthday parties here?
The Salmon & Ebiko Pasta ($18) is made with a homemade sauce and topped with
tobiko. Highly recommended, the al-dente pasta, served with my favourite tobiko and salmon was just so good! The pasta were evenly tossed to provide each mouthful, a flavourful and aromatic experience. The salmon was sizeable but a tad too sweet for my liking.
Nevertheless, substantial portion and a flavourful note was definitely worth the indulgence. The combination of tobiko, seaweed and salmon was a wining factor and pleasant sensation to my taste buds.
Served with broccoli purée, edamame (green soybeans) and spice-infused tomatoes, this huge serving of salmon ($21.90) is sure to satisfy your salmon cravings. The end result of pan frying this salmon, crispy, thin salmon skin along with tender, melt in your mouth salmon. The flavour from the homemade edamame (green soybeans) sauce.
Corn Fed Chicken $17.90, glistering brown chicken leg skin is what made this dish look so irresistible. The chicken was so tender, that even the breast meat did not taste dry! A dish worth recommending!
Wagyu Striploin $24.90, served with whipped Potato, Grilled Onions and Beef Jus. Melt in your mouth texture is guaranteed here!
Poke You $16.00
– Truffled Salmon, flavoured Mix Rice, Pineapple cubes, Salad, Corn, Pumpkin seeds and Ebiko. Additional Cherry tomatos at $1.00 per portion.
With all the hype with numerous poke bowl shops, Tada offers this menu item to cater to the working crowd and students in the vicinity. The truffle salmon was ingenious and delicious, I was abit confused with the pineapple cubes and lack of other substantial ingredients for a price tag of $16.
Happy hours from 3pm-7pm
$8 wine glass
$35 Beer bucket
Check out their on-going set lunch promotion! They look so delicious and wallet friendly too!
Overall : Ta-Da is trying hard to offer gourmet delicacies at reasonable prices. Their Roasted Chicken and Pan-Fried Salmon are definitely worth coming for! I’ll be back, and I was told they would be serving over the top milkshakes soon!! 🙂 YAY!
