Food Review: Montreux Jazz Cafe Singapore

Montreux Jazz Cafe Singapore is a nice place to chill out with friends after work for a quality dinner or drinks alongside with great live band performance.

Montreux Jazz Cafe is the latest addition to Singapore’s bustling Orchard Road corridor, shinning a spotlight at Pan Pacific Orchard Hotel. The cafe offers both indoor as well as alfresco dining. It was raining really heavily the day I went, hence indoor dining was definitely my choice.

The indoor of the cafe has a spacious and elegant setting that ensure we dine comfortably in the cosy ambiance. 

Montreux Jazz Cafe was established by Claude Nobs with his passion for music and fine dining. The idea came from Montreux Jazz Festival, a yearly held music festival in Switzerland since 50 years ago, where the founder designed the cafe into a welcoming space where cuisine and music could combine in a way never seen before.

Montreux is the name of the town in Switzerland.

A quality meal and chill out session with friends is what I yearned after work.
Every night there will be live band performance too.

We started off our dinner with cocktails. 
Since I was feeling good that night, I decided to order Feeling Good ($18) with the lychee juice.

While waiting for our food, we were being served with complimentary bread.
The bread tasted so good with the accompanied spread.

Here's what we have for starter: Pan Seared Hokkaido Scallops ($38).

The pan seared scallop was my favourite. It was served with chicken crackling, edamame puree, lemon tarragon nage and fine herbs. The scallops tasted tender and moist. One is definitely not enough for me so I reached out for two. I love the combination of scallops and lemon tarragon together, giving it a savory flavour.
We also tried Montreux Jazz Salad ($22) which was served with Montreux Jazz Cafe prawns, avocado and sorbet.

This was my first time having the sorbet in a starter. The salad goes well with the sorbet, it has a little sour taste that added refreshing flavour to the plain salad. The prawn was fresh and tasted flavoursome when toppled sorbet on it.

For side, we had Yukon Gold Potato Mousseline ($8).

The potato mousseline was made using chopped chive, garlic confit and pure cream. The mousseline literally just melted in my mouth. It was creamy and moist. Though it looked simple, each bite taste savoury and satisfying.

For the main course, I had Quincy Jones Roast Chicken ($32)

This was one of the recommended signature dish by the staff. This dish was named after one of the American renowned music figures. Dip the roasted chicken into the marinated “A La Quincy Jones” for a bursting flavour. The chicken was tender and fell off easily from the bone. The roasted chicken tasted delicious just eating on its own without the sauce. The dish was accompanied with potato wavers. The potato wavers were not really to my liking because it was salty for my tastebuds. Other than that, everything was great.

Time to proceed for dessert after a hearty meal, we let the staff to help us decide on the dessert to be served so it's kinda like a mystery to us what we were having for dessert.

And one of it turned out to be Mont Blanc ($15).

Mont Blanc was served with chestnut custard, caramelized chestnut, dark chocolate crumble and lemon meringue.

With the first bite, I was sold away by the sweetness of the chestnut custard. It was pretty addictive and I kept scooping for more. Totally in love with this. The lemon meringue helped to balance the sweetness of the dessert with a tinge of sourness, resulting in a well mix of both taste. 

Last but not least, we ended our meal with Pavlova ($13) making up of assorted fruits, strawberry jelly and white chocolate cream. The main highlight of this dessert was definitely the crisp crust. This is yet another addictive dessert, the crisp crust was really crunchy and literally just melt in our mouth. 

The dessert was impressive, we cleared every bits of it.

We have an enjoyable dinner, thanks Montreux Jazz Cafe Singapore for hosting us.
Happy belated birthday, Steffi.
