District 10 Festive Menu

District 10 Bar & Restaurant and District 10 Bar & Grill are celebrating the festive season in a fiery fashion! What you will be seeing in this post will be available for the whole month of December and we are just weeks away from Christmas! smile

Available at Suntec City

We started the meal with some bar bites – Fried Soft Shell Crab with Chili Crab Sauce ($20++) which was not too oily with generous chunks of crab meat in it and Papadum with Foie Gras and Mango Chutney ($26++), probably the only foie gras I love, it had a good balance of fat it in and literally melts in your mouth.

Flavourful and satisfying, Portobello Mushrooms stuffed with Crabmeat and Prawn topped with Gorgonzola sauce and Flying Fish Roe ($28++) are plump, juicy and moist.

For carb lovers, Homemade Lobster Ravioli cooked in Light Butter Sage sauce and finished with Black Truffle ($38++) will be the perfect dish for you. Check out those generous strips of truffle, which added some aroma and visual appeal to the entire dish.

The highlight of the day is the Flaming Black Angus Tomahawk ($180) which is the first in Singapore. Sourced from Australia, the 200-day grain-fed Black Angus Tomahawk is a generous portion of up to 1.7kg which is good for 4-5 people. District 10 had nailed the perfect medium rare steak, where we were treated to a spectacular sight as the steak was flamed right in front of our eyes, leaving a nice, charred taste to the juicy meat.

Also up in flames is the Bourbon Flamed Cheese ($24++), where strips of bacon are wrapped around the the cheese to give it that extra oomph.

Available at UE Square

Cheese lovers, you are in for a treat! The Cheese Wheel promotion will be extended till end of the month due to its success and popular demand. Items like salad, pasta, risotto will be tossed in a huge wheel of Grana Padano Cheese before being served.

First dish on the cheese wheel menu is the Caesar Salad with D10 Classic dressing, Crouton and Smoked Chicken ($19++). I find this dish a tad too salty, probably due to the additional blob of anchovies paste added to the salad. However, the smoked chicken was tender and tastefully done.

Pasta dishes like the Spaghetti with Smoked Salmon in Light Cream Sauce ($28++) and Linguine with Mixed Seafood in a Spicy Tomato Basil sauce ($28++) are tossed in the cheese wheel as well which makes the sauce more creamy and rich. My personal favourite is the smoked salmon version, which has a silkier texture.

We also tried starters like Wagyu Beef Carpaccio, Rocket Lettuce and 24 Month Old Shaved Parmesan Cheese ($18++) and Over Baked Eggplant Alla Parmigiana Style ($17++). The latter was my favourite out of the two, as the eggplant was fork tender and blended extremely well with the tomato sauce and cheese.

Made with mushrooms, pancetta ham, zucchini and egg, the District 10 Pizza ($19++) has a light, thin crust, definitely a hit for carb-lovers.

We ended the meal with a cuppa Traditional Italian Tiramisu ($14++), one of my favourite Italian desserts.

Jamie’s Italian Christmas Menu

From now till 31 December, Jamie’s Italian will be celebrating the holiday season with a duo of Christmas menus, featuring festive Italian classics with a Jamie Oliver twist. We had a chance to savour on the delectable lunch and dinner festive menus which are available at S$49.90++ and S$65.90++ respectively. As part of a CSR initiative, the restaurant will also be giving back this Christmas, with donations from the proceeds of all kids’ meals going towards helping the Singapore Children’s Society.

Festive Italian Pate comes with toasted ciabatta topped with silky smooth free range chicken liver & vin santo pate (wine), grated parmesan cheese and cripsy sage. The chicken liver has a rich, velvety smooth flavor and has the right amount of fat in it.

Smoked Salmon Crostini is packed full of flavour with crunchy sourdough, topped with delicious smoked salmon, herby whipped ricotta and fresh grated horseradish.

Bresaola Salad is made with slices of cured beef bresaola that has been aged 2-3 months, creamy ricotta, sliced pears, garden leaves & toasted almonds with Parmesan & aged balsamic. This dish is a crowd-pleaser and is simple and nutritious enough to be eaten as a main dish.

With the pasta freshly made daily, the Wild Mushroom Pappardelle is tossed with pan-fried Paris brown and oyster mushrooms in a garlicky porcini mushroom sauce with fresh chilli and a lemony gremolata. It was my first time trying out this unique pasta which is extremely chewy and takes eating pasta to a whole new level.

For those who prefers white meat and seafood, Sea Bass is the best choice. Together with steamed mussels and saffron aioli, it is cooked in white wine, chilli, fennel and garlic broth. The sauce has a balance of spiciness and sweetness, probably from the seafood itself and has a nice and thick consistency.

Gennaro’s Porchetta is stuffed with their secret blend of chilli, fennel, orange zest, apricot, apple and herbs. The pork belly is slow cooked overnight and then crisped up to order. Served with braised red cabbage, pan juices and smashed crackling, it is bursting with flavor with every bite of the meat.

Succulent, tender and juicy, Roasted Baby Chicken has been marinated in herbs and roasted to perfection and served with pork sausage stuffing wrapped in pancetta, proper bread sauce and lots of gravy.

All main courses above come with a side of potatoes roasted with rosemary, brussels sprouts roasted and topped with parmesan and pangrattato (herby breadcrumbs), parsnips, celeriac and squash roasted with olive oil and rosemary.

Tangy Lemon Tart has a silky smooth texture, with a buttery biscuit base and topped with vanilla cream, fresh pomegranate and mint tips. I love anything with lemon and this is totally heaven to me! tongue

Tiramisu Pavlova is a slight twist on the classic tiramisu with additional crunchy meringue, topped with a scoop of tiramisu, chocolate ice cream, crushed toasted hazelnuts and hot chocolate sauce.

White Chocolate Cheesecake is made with mascarpone cheese which results in a smoother silkier cheesecake. Consists of a crunchy amaretti biscuit base, a silky smooth clementine curd, orange segments, mint and crushed honeycomb, every bite of the cheesecake is luxuriously smooth and dense.

Both menus come with a welcome glass of bubbly and guests can also supplement their menu with a glass of limoncello for an additional S$5.50++ and a cup of coffee or tea at S$3.50++ per person.
