with head chef, Kentaro Torii
Capable of transforming even a simple luncheon into an extravagant affair, Executive Chef Kentaro Torii promises the most exciting dining experience at OChre.
Born in Kanagawa, Tokyo, Kentaro started training as a chef from the tender age of 18. He travelled through Europe for inspiration and took a particular interest in Italy – for its rich culture and diverse cuisines. Kentaro perfected his cuisine whilst based in the Lombardy region (Italy), including his signature risotto.
overall, it was amazing. it’s been awhile since i last had foie gras & it was very nicely done. we all left with happy tummies.. if i remember correctly it was $68++ per person, subject to additional charges for the choice of food, it was a +$10 for the foie gras as well as the beef steak. a tad pricey in general but for the quality of the food in addition to awesome company, it was well worth it. :)
and i fell in love with something that night…
amaretto ginger… i foresee this being a favourite for a long time to come :)OChre is located at Orchard Central. 181 Orchard Road #11-03/04, Singapore 238896
