The Continental – British Crystal House

This spacious and elegant crystal house is located at the Pacific Place. It runs all day from breakfast to lunch, brunch on the weekend, and dinner with an intimate ambience. The restaurant serves British classic food, but also you’ll find inspirations of some French and Italian cuisines on their menu.

The 3 course lunch set starts off with a fresh tomato salad with salted anchovies and a simple olive oil vinaigrette dressing, amazing plating and very delightful.

We followed with a steamed fillet of hake, similar to white cod, has perfect flakiness, served over a bed of sea-salted crispy samphire. It is also topped with a piece of batter-fried oyster and citrus sauce.

For a hot starter, the possibly 3-egg omelette is delectably fluffy, with the inside wobbly cooked and stuffed with morel mushrooms.

A Chef’s signature griddled scallops are exceptionally sweet, with chestnut puree and zesty lemon rinds, both have given the plumpy scallops an extra lift and refreshment.

We complete our set lunch with an unfussy banana caramel tart tatin, which comes with a jar of vanilla custard.

To be completely indulgenced, the decadent paris brest has been filled with generous creamy praline cream. The chocolate souffle is also remarkable in term of its texture, which is instantly perfected with a dollop of pistachio ice cream and the pouring of rich gooey chocolate sauce. It is so satisfying!
