Osia Part II - Our 3rd Visit

No it's not a typo in the header. I was just too lazy busy to do up a post on our second visit so yes, it's our third visit to the one Michelin starred Osia (you can read about our first visit here).

Stone Hearth Flat Bread

We started off with our favourite garlic butter flat bread but on this occasion, it was a wee bit under-cooked. Still good nonetheless, especially when paired with the mildly zesty tomato basil paste. Definitely worth the $11++ price tag.

Foie Gras

Perfectly crisp on the outside but less than quivery on the inside, presumably due to the tiny portion. What I did like about this dish was the pineapple textures served alongside; pineapple jam, mousse, puree providing varying textures and injecting a nice acidity and sweetness to counteract the richness of the foie gras. Can't say this was worth the $12++ top up though.

Capellini with Mud Crab

A right amount of zest in the tomato base coupled with al dente capellini and reasonably plentiful shreds of mud crab made for a simple yet well done dish. I also liked the copious amounts of pine nuts in the mix, which imbued this dish with a lovely nutty flavour.

Bill

Lunch (with complimentary tea/coffee) came up to almost $110 for the both of us. For the quality and quantity of food, I'm inclined to say that it's relatively overpriced. Our service staff, Melissa, was great but the manager seemed a little too stiff for my liking. And I hold my previous view that though respectably proficient, Osia unfortunately isn't really worthy of a Michelin star.
