A way overdue post considering Arteastiq at Plaza Singapura launched last year, but it’s still relevant and I’ll be highlighting which are the dishes I’d recommend and have gone back for since it’s opening! 😉
Arteastiq started out at Mandarin Gallery and it’s known to be a place where you can spend hours painting and/or having tea with friends, so it’s also only appropriate to dress up a little for it (not that I need any excuse to dress up, really). 😉
Promotion boards and a space for painting just in front of the store. During the weekdays when I’ve passed by, they also exhibit artworks there.
Already loving the very French-esque (read: style) shop front with the black and white canopy and old school bike prop. Have I mentioned how much I love an updated, modern yet classic interior? Loving the gold accents amidst the black and white colours.The interior decor and furnishing is eclectic yet classy and comfortable.
Green plants and candles set a cosy ambience.You could also choose to lounge in these green sofas.
You’re getting a very soothing open skies and greenery view if you’re seating by the windows. Longan tea is an Arteastiq special and many have asked where to get the tea from but it’s a trade secret! My friends and I love it iced as it’s refreshing and perfect for Singapore’s sunny weather.You can opt for biscuits and biscotti to go with the tea too!
We had a lot of dishes to share at the food tasting, but here are my top 3 dish picks! 🙂
Aphrodiate Crabmeat Benedict ($25) is a store recommended dish, the crabmeat was a little dry.
I super love this Tuscan Sun Porcine et Polenta ($20) which is eggs over mashed potatos and mushrooms, basically all my favourites on a plate!
I have yet to try Summer in Provence – Foiegras ($28) which is seared foie gras with lightly baked eggs but it’s definitely next on my list when I’m back.
This Boston Love Boat Ciponi ($29) is a highly recommended dish for sharing. Everything about this dish from the seafood to soup, is perfect.
We were basically too full to properly appreciate the desserts…
Mount Etna’s Peak ($13) Crisp chocolate triangle filled with Valrhona chocolate mousse, yuzu gelato and berries coulis – I don’t know about you, but this is basically all my favourite desserts on a platter!
Airy Fairy ($13) pairing Valrhona Chocolate Mousse with Vanilla Cream Parfait and Mixed Berries.
With fellow ladies at our table, Karen the founder and Agnes!
