Mouth Restaurant : Abalone, Lobster, Bird Nest at only $36.80 !!!

I have always been amazed by how Mouth Restaurant could constantly introduce new set menu at jaw-dropping my prices without compromising on the quality. And once again, my recent visit for their 6-Course Gourmet Set Menu testified this. Abalone, lobster, sea cucumber, birdnest, crab....all these included for just $36.80. 

Unlike traditional abalones that are steamed and drowned in brown sauce, the Chilled Abalone took on a refreshing twist by being served like sashimi on a bed of sizzling dry ice. The pristine white 4-head abalone tastes very sweet on its own with a dab of wasabi and soy sauce. 

The Lobster and Mixed Seafood Soup stays rooted in the familiar starchy form of soup but it is light and slurpy. I wish more Chinese restaurants could serve this instead of sharksfin soup during weddings as this is so much tastier and choked full of premium ingredients from lobster, prawns to scallops. 
The Deep Fried Fish Fillet with Mushroom Sauce Topping looks deceivingly like any western dish but it isn't. This dish is really delicious, with a crisp golden batter insulating the moist piping hot flesh that tasted even better with the unique mushroom sauce that is made with dried mushrooms. 
This Crab Meat Fried Rice with Fish Roe reminded me of the exact same version at Grand Mandarin Restaurant. The grains were light and fluffy but taste wise, the Seafood XO Fried Rice, which I had during my last visit to Mouth, is still unbeatable. 
The Braised Stuffed Sea Cucumber is so unctuously tender that you don't actually need a knife and fork to eat that. The minced meat paste binds together excellently and is flavorful without being too salty.
The Bird Nest Caramel Custard Pudding kept my faith in the restaurant for its pursuit of creativity and originality. You will think this is a typical wobbly eggy custard pudding until you spoon a bite into your mouth. It's dense, sweet yet not cloyingly rich that would kill your interest after a while.

I'm pretty sure this is the only Chinese restaurant, or even the only place in Singapore where you can encounter such a strange yet satisfying custard pud. And that touch of bird nest, albeit in scarcity, is no more than an indulgent bonus.
