Tasting Aura's Weekend Lunch Set Menu1 Saint Andrew's Road, 05-03 and 06-02 National Gallery Singapore, Singapore 178957
+65 6866 1977
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.
|Trofie with Crab Busara|
|Caserecce with Pesto and Porcini|
|Parma ham with burrata cheese|
|For him: Kagoshima beef (medium) with Green asparagus and potato mousseline (need to add 22 SGD for this)|
|For her: Smoked Duck Supreme with Celeriac and Lemon Spinach (includes a slab of foie gras)|
|tea for him and coffee for her|
|Passion fruit and lemon tart with almond crumble and yuzu jelly|
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.

The Michelin Guides are a series of guide books published by French tire manufacturer, Michelin. No idea on how a tire company began rating food establishments but it is what it is now. In 2016, Michelin deemed Singapore as a dining destination and a guide specific to Singapore has been launched. In that inaugural guide, Liao Fan Hong Kong Soya Sauce Chicken Rice & Noodle was included making it the world's cheapest Michelin-Starred meal. That is if you don't consider the dollar equivalent of the time used to queue for a plate or 2.
|Insane queue at 12 noon|
|after 2.5 hours, almost there|
|chef-owner Chan Hon Meng hard at work|
|2.50 sgd - soya chicken with noodle|
The chicken is so tender and flavorful. Worth queueing for for 3 hours? Not sure but it was mighty tasty.
|3.00 sgd pork ribs with rice|

The Yellow Cab Pizza 1st in Singapore
B1-01/02 CityLink Mall
The Yellow Cab Pizza Co. Story
Yellow Cab Pizza Co. opened its first branch in Makati Avenue back in April 2001 with a simple mission: to share a slice of New York to the Filipino people.
Yellow Cab serves New York-style pizza with premium ingredients and generous toppings. But wait, what is New York-style pizza anyway? Unlike the pizza you’re used to, New York-style pizza is crisp and slightly charred in the bottom, dense and chewy in the middle, and slightly gooey on top. And that’s just the crust. Top it off with a generous serving of the freshest, highest-quality ingredients, and you get—simply put—great New York-style pizza.
But the New York experience doesn’t just stop with the pizza.
Step into one of Yellow Cab’s 130 branches nationwide and be greeted with an energy and passion that matches one of the world’s favorite cities. With an open kitchen, exposed pipes, grafitti and concrete walls, you get a taste of the lifestyle of a true New Yorker.
Want a bite of New York in your home or office? Yellow Cab delivers the good stuff wherever you are in its iconic yellow Vespa scooters.
With ingredients that fit perfectly together, Yellow Cab Pizza Co. serves products that people from all generations keep coming back to. No matter what the occasion is, pizza, pasta and other stuff will always be a good idea.
Chicken wings tossed with special garlic butter sauce sprinkled with parmesan cheese and dried basil.
Rich and hearty pasta with two giant meatballs - baked and simmered in chunky red wine tomato sauce.
