Oso Ristorante - Bukit Pasoh, Singapore

Add: 46 Bukit Pasoh Road, Singapore
Tel: +65 6327 8378
Opening hours: Mon-Fri @ 12pm - 2.30pm, 6.30pm - 10.30pm , Sat: 6.30pm - 10.30pm , closed on Sundays.
Oso is located in a 2 storey shop house along Bukit Pasoh Road, at the end nearer to New Bridge Road. The first floor is the Cigar Room where guests can linger for some drinks and to puff their favourite cigars. The main dining area is on the second floor. There's a choice of dining in the comforts of the main dining area, or at the Balcony, where there's full view of the street downstairs. No air conditioning here though. Oso provides private dining for various sizes to cater for the special occasion.

Starters weren't particularly impressive, except for the Cold Cuts Parma Ham. Looked deeeelicious! Parma ham “prosciutto” 18 months served with rock melon - SGD$38

My Foie gras starter, which was good, but not spectacular!

200 Gr. Roasted beef tenderloin “filetto” with sabayon, asparagus and shaved truffle - SGD$48 ... LT loved this, and would recommend it prepared "blue" (Yes, raw-er then rare!)

8 hours oven baked lamb rack “agnello” with black onions and green beans - SGD$34 ... WM's choice, really enjoyable with its melt-in-mouth texture.

Other mains we chose include the pesto pasta, which was a wee bit too rich!

Slowly braised veal shank “Ossobuco” with lemon gremolata and potato puree - SGD$34 ... My choice. Again, really delicious especially the MARROW which Sumo thought me to enjoy. However, the serving was hardly generous I reckon!

A good choice by LT, an Argentinian red.

The signature Chocolate Tart "Crostata" with Milk Ice Cream was well enjoyed! Forget the cheesecake, it was rather forgettable. LT chose the "strong" cheese platter, hmmm...

I wasn't particularly impressed by the waiting staff, but the maitre'd and the chef were pleasant! At SGD$110 per person, this was definitely not a cheap meal. There were hits and misses, but overall, this is a good restaurant.

Actually, that's not an argentinian red... it's an ARGENINA chianti classico, from Tuscany. Not an argy, but delicious for the price and not too shabby with osso buco!
