Dinner at Terra

今日は久しぶりに「Terra」でディナーをいただきました。ミシュランの星を獲得されて以来なかなか予約が取れず、仕方ないので数週間前に予約を入れていました。

We went to Terra for dinner today. It’s been a while since we’d been there because it’s become very hard to get a reservation since they received a Michelin Star.  I had to book a table a few weeks in advance.

いつもの3つあるおまかせコースの真ん中のコース。

As usual, we took the middle one of their 3 Omakase menu options.

1皿目は、日本からの和牛の千本すじという部位を使ったカルパッチョ。千本すじというのは、1頭の牛から600gしか取れない希少な部位だそうです。北海道のアスパラガスやトリュフ入りチーズなどと。とても美味しかったです。

The 1st dish was Capaccio.   The beef is from Japan and is a part called “Senbon” – it means 1000 lines.  Apparently there is only 600 g or so of this part out of a whole cow.  It was served with Hokkaido asparagus, cheese with truffle etc.  It was delicious.

2皿目は、ヨルサレムアーティチョークのスープ。これも、とっても美味しかったです。

The 2nd dish was Jerusalem Artichoke soup, which was also delicious.

3品目は、イタリアのトスカーナから生のポルチーニと日本からのオーガニックの卵。

The 3rd dish was fresh porcini from Tuscany in Italy and organic egg from Japan.  Very nice.

4品目は、黒豚のラグーのパスタ。わたしには少し癖があるのですが、夫はこちらこ黒豚のラグーが大好き、唸りながら食べていました。

The 4th dish was pasta with Kurobuta ragu.  To me this is a little gamy but my husband really loves it.

メインは、日本からの和牛にサービスのホワイトトリュフ。カリッと香ばしく焼けた牛肉も表面がカリカリのポテトグラタンもセロリアックのピューレも美味しかったです。

The main was Japanese beef with potato gratine and puree of celeriac.  The beef was caramelised and crispy outside and tender inside, the potato was crispy on top and creamy inside.  The celeriac puree was lovely and sweet.

デザートは、日本の黒イチジクのグラニータとゼリー、カラマンシーのシャーベットなど。さっぱりしたデザートでした。

The dessert was Japanese black fig granita & jello, calamansy sorbet.  Very light.

150ドルほどのワイン1本とガス入りのお水をシェアーして、夫は最後にエスプレッソを飲んで、600ドル弱でした。やっぱり高いな〜と思いますが、今日は特に美味しかったので満足。ただ、日によってボリュームが違い、今日は少し足りない感じがしました。暫くすると良い具合に膨れたので、この方が体には良いのですけどね。

We ordered a bottle of wine (about S$150), a bottle of sparkling water and my husband had espresso after the meal and the bill was about S$600.  It is very expensive but we feel OK because we really enjoyed the dinner.  In terms of volume, it seems to be different every time and today it was on the lighter side, we felt we could have had another dish or a larger size of the pasta.  Still, after a while we felt full enough so it was good for us, I suppose.
