Located in The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Bread Street Kitchen introduces a relaxed drinking and dining experience. The restaurant and bar is styled mirroring the London edition - a lively warehouse design combining vintage and modern decor.
 
Bread Street Kitchen serves a British European menu with fresh seasonal produce; whilst the bar combines well known classics with some more innovative and fun cocktails, as well as a large collection of world wines. Bread Street Kitchen will be open daily for lunch, dinner and drinks until late.





Before the appetisers are served, we were offered with a bag of lukewarm breads. Spread with a thin slab of butter, the breads tasted ordinary. The best tasting bread/cracker was the above. A thin crust of bread topped with multi-grains. The multi-grains were fragrant and the crust was crackling crispy. (Food rating: 3/5)



A perfectly seared scallops is best when the outsides have a nice caramel-coloured crust and the insides remains tender and creamy. One of the secrets to ensuring that wonderful golden, caramelized color is to make sure that the scallops are perfectly dry before you start to sear them. If the scallops are wet, they won’t brown in the pan! At Bread Street Kitchen, the seared scallops were placed on top of carrot puree and then topped with treacle cured bacon, apple and celery cress (SGD24). Although the scallops were soft and creamy, they were not seared well. The outsides were still pale white and the taste was so-so. The scallops with the carrot puree, bacon and apple strips eaten together tasted ordinary. Nothing much to rave about. (Food rating: 2.5/5)



A combination of fruits, greens, nuts and cheese is an interesting salad. The salad, comprising Watermelon, avocado, feta, rocket, pumpkin seeds, balsamic (SGD18), was quite refreshing. The pumpkin seeds were fragrant during and after chewing. The salad with balsamic vinegar had a sweet and vinegary taste that will definitely whet your appetite. (Food rating: 2.5/5)



Risotto with girolle mushroom, peas, green asparagus, and aged parmesan (SGD32) was creamy and fragrant but the creamy became overwhelming that we become queasy after that. Risotto is a north Italian rice dish cooked in a broth to a creamy consistency. The broth is derived from vegetables - mushrooms. Texturally, the rice dish is saucy. (Food rating: 3/5)



The most infamous dish from Gordon Ramsay's Hell Kitchen has to be the Beef Wellington, a class British dish consisting of a seared filet mignon smothered in a whole-grained mustard and wrapped in layers of salty prosciutto (Italian ham), an herbed crepe, duxelles (mushrooms that have been pulverised into paste), and puff pastry. The whole package is then baked until the crust crisps up and the meat reaches medium-rare perfection. At SGD80, you will get a single serving of the British dish. However, it was a disappointment. The crust was soggy and soft, not crisp. The beef was cooked to medium well as per our request but the overall taste was too ordinary. The crust also lacked the fragrant and the presentation was normal. (Food rating: 2.5/5)



Came with Beef Wellington was a serving of spiced vegetables, carrots, radish and Choy Sum (Produces small yellow flowers, which gives it its other name of Chinese flowering cabbage. Its long, pale stalks and fragile leaves are suited to stir-frying and steaming). (Food rating: 2.5/5)



Even though we came without reservations, we were quite disappointed with the service. Most the servers were concentrated at the tables and did not attend to us, who sat at the long table opposite the bar counter. We waited at least 15 minutes before we were noticed. It took another 5 minutes before the server attended to us. We expected some level of service despite our casual attire.
