Annual Singapore trip day 3: celebrity restaurant 2

Pin It

Lunchtime at the day of the conference, and the boss and I had no interest to sit through a 2-hour long lunch while listening to some guy drone on about the economy.  So we decided to stroll along the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and see what strikes his fancy.  There was a line of people waiting to get into Pizzeria Mozza, so we walked into db Bistro and Oyster Bar next door.

We didn't want to eat too much, so a two-course set lunch seemed to be the way to go.  Maybe.

Pâté "de campagne" - simple country pork terrine, served with slices of toasted baguette on the side.  I expected the cornichons but the pickled radish was a surprise.

The original db burger - yes, I'm a country bumpkin.  I have been away from New York City for a long, long time... and haven't been back much since Daniel Boulud first invented his burger with foie gras, even thought that was created ages ago.  Since I'm here, I figured I owed it to myself to check out this crowd favorite.

I asked for medium-rare, and it was pretty much done that way.  Gotta say this was pretty good, with a chunk of foie as well as short rib encased in minced sirloin.  The only problem was the amount of grease here.  After I finished the first half, the grease in the patty had dripped down and soaked through the bottom half of the bun.  That makes for some greasy fingers, but they sure smelled nice afterwards!

The fries were pretty good, but I decided that since the burger itself was so big, I'd better take it easy on the fries...

Pretty good for a simple lunch, and probably more enjoyable than the default lunch option.  The burger did sit in my stomach for a while, though...
