On the 5th level of the National Gallery Singapore is a waiter-service restaurant which melds art and cuisine beautifully so that your senses are fully engaged after a meal and a viewing of museum exhibits.
This post shows what is included in the Weekend Lunch Menu. The food volume is for 2.
Note that the menu changes. For the a la carte menu, check their website.
After ordering, the waiter will offer some bread and olive oil with balsamic vinegar. If you easily get full, go easy on the bread.
Next is something that you did not order but will definitely appreciate, an amuse-bouche will be offered. It's how a chef introduces himself to you so if you liked it, then you will most likely enjoy the rest of the meal.
|amuse-bouche: Tapioca chop with truffle infused mousse. Each guest gets one of this tasty morsel.|
|Glass of red for him and prosecco for her, cost of each is not included in the set menu price.|
The weekend menu had a generous 5 different starters:
(1) Tuna Tartare and Avocado Crostinos
(2) Salt and Paprika Calamari
(3) Trofie with Crab Busara
(4) Caserecce with pesto and porcini
(5) Parma ham with burrata cheese
Except for the calamari, we were able to finish the rest of the starters. Was not able to ask if we can takeaway the leftover.

This set menu is all yours for 48 sgd ++ per person. I feel the pricing is fair for the quality and amount of food served us. Oh the waiter service is impressive as well.
Best to call ahead to reserve a table.
