Duck Duck Goose…

Duck Duck Goose…a charming name for a restaurant that has been in the works for longer than it takes to play 100 rounds of its namesake childhood game.

The space is ambitious with a multiple personality. Designed in two halves; the luxurious higher-end dining room and a budget-friendly modern Asian eatery I note both sides serves more than these main functions. There’s the chic champagne bar with white leather lounges and blooms by Flower Temple; the main dining room which is large in itself with pendant lighting, a wine-bottle lined wall and a central water bath feature; casually intimate rooms dotted with bonsai that are partitioned off by transformable pale wood slats; a nook with more tea varieties than you can poke a spoon at plus another informal bar. Phew! If the team can balance all of these spinning plates it could be quite a fantastic experience no matter what occasion or mood you are in.

I looked forward to sampling some French (apt for Bastille Day) and Chinese cuisine but the former’s influence in particular was surprisingly absent. Tasty five-spiced meatballs, tender scallops and gingered wontons hint at things to come. Peeking at the menu for the more casual portion of the restaurant I spy excellently priced congee, noodles and sharing dishes. Again the finer dining options are still a bit of a mystery. I particularly look forward to visiting the restaurant when both the duck and the goose are in full flight.
