Food Review: Froth

I had the privilege of attending a food tasting at Froth Cafe (or maybe a restaurant now) where they had a revamped menu in conjunction with their shift in location from BIG Hotel to Ascott in Raffles Place.


Like their previous location, the space here is also big, with a sleek white and black theme to go with their classy image at this upscale apartment.



There is a side of the restaurant that can double up as a private function room with the doors you see above.


As you can see from their new menu above, the chef incorporates the Asian elements into what we usually know as traditional Western fares. We tried a few of them and let's see the verdict below...



Speculoos Milkshake ($14.90++) and Iced Lychee Tea ($4.90++)
We ordered our own drinks and were recommended the Iced Lychee Tea, which was refreshing but a bit too sweet. As a speculoos lover, I decided to try their milkshake which was good! Creamy and milky and rich in speculoos flavour. A tad on the sweet side once again, and so diabetes inducing oh gosh.

Lobster Jelly ($22.90++) 

Chilled lobster chunks with tomato jelly, marinated vine cherry tomatoes, wasabi and ginger powder, edible flowers and cresses. The lobster meat was fresh and full of bite, while it was interesting to eat it in a cold jelly.

Hot and Cold Foie Gras ($23.90++)

Pan seared foie gras on toasted brioche with pomegranate and truffle honey apple reduction; chilled foie gras on crushed sable with kiwi, cherry and granny smith slaw. To be honest I've only eaten foie gras once before this so I'm not in a good position to judge this dish! Hahaha. But the foie gras was soft, chewy and tasty, and I preferred the hot one to the cold one.


Five Spice Wagyu Beef Burger ($34.90++) 

Homemade five spice wagyu patty wrapped in crispy beancurd skin, with baby arugula and tomatoes on a soft brioche burger bun. This burger is very interesting - the chef combined our local ngoh hiang ingredients into the wagyu beef patty! So you can taste the water chestnut and the spices of the ngoh hiang are distinct too. The beef patty was thick and is definitely the star of the dish. The brioche buns were soft and fluffy too.

Siobak Aglio ($25.90++)

Another intriguing dish is this one, where the combination of roast pork belly actually fits very well with the Aglio Olio-style linguine pasta! The pork was tender and nicely roasted, while the linguine itself was very flavourful I could just eat it on its own! Thumbs up for creativity and execution of this dish!

Seafood Tom Yum Risotto ($29.90++) 

Not a fan of risotto but this was good and the texture was just right, while the tom yum taste was distinct but not overpowering. The seafood was fresh too. Extra points for the beautiful presentation! Haha.


Ponzu Soya Cod ($35.90++)

Glazed cod with wasabi edamame puree, smoked mash, baby peaches and bak choy. This is another of my favourite dish here! I love cod fish and this was very tender and soft! However, for the price I pay, I'd prefer the serving to be larger.

French Toast Waffles ($16.90++) 

It's dessert time! Now while the idea of french toast waffles isn't new, I love this rendition of the already-creative dish. The waffles turned out crispy as they're half baked in the waffle maker then dipped into egg custard and deep fried likka french toast. Plus it's served with goreng pisang and cereal oat crumbles, topped with a scoop of ice cream (which is toasted marshmallows for this). Mmm the whole combination was sinfully good!

The food here definitely has quality and I admire the chef for such innovative Asian-Western fusion food. The ambience is lovely too, so I guess all these justifies the price you're paying? It's a good place for a couple dinner or catch up with friends, so you may wanna check out this place next time. :) Thank you Froth for hosting us and Justin for extending the invite to me!
