Hi there

As my plan during the staycation at Wangz hotel was to check out some new restaurants, we managed to try out some new places.

One of them is at Cafe L’ Operetta at Duxton Road. A new restaurant that serve Japanese inspired European cuisine by the L’ Opera group. It is located at the ground floor of Berjaya Hotel,and they are run by a team of Japanese chefs from their main courses down to their desserts.

Hiding among the shophouses, you will be able to find it at Berjaya Singapore Hotel Lobby.  That evening, there were only a couple of tables occupied, I only saw a few customers and all were Japanese.

The decor of the restaurant is make up of European pieces with artworks and furnitures. Seatings were comfy and the ambience is rather cosy, great for some romantic dinner, or just some close friends gathering.

They have an extensive menu of wine and they also arrange wine events in their restaurant.

Once seated, we were served with sliced plain and multi grain bread with butter. Bread was lightly toasted with melted butter, great start to the evening.

That evening for drinks, I opted for a white sangria ($16++) as I usually only see red one in the menu at other restaurants. The white sangria comes with longan, pineapple and grapes with the right amount of alcohol in it. Tangy and fruity, with a hint of tart, great to drink this at the start of the meal.

For our mains, we ordered one Australia Wagyu Rump Steak & one Beef Burger to settle our cravings for some juicy meat.

The Australian Beef Burger ($30++) comes in a thick aromatic charred beef patty with tomato, pickles and onions in between toasted buns with a garlic spread. It comes with a side salad and fries. The crispy fries were surprisingly fluffy and is the perfect companion to the juicy burger.

While the wagyu rump steak or croupe wagyu ($48++) comes with long beans, asparagus, carrot, half a grilled onion with melted cheese and also sautéed wild forest mushrooms. The earthiness of the mushrooms compliment the robust flavor of the succulent beef. Together with the sweet aromatic onions, it gives the dish an instant boost. How I wish they also have some baked baby potatoes or even mashed potatoes to go with the sauce, the sauce was fantastic.

Service was prompt and attentive, both waiter and waitress make small talks to the customers to make sure we are okay with the dishes.

As we heard they serve great desserts, we were really excited when they brought out a whole plate of colorful macaroons, chocolate cake, tiramisu and opera cake. Too bad, the waitress told us that they usually have more varieties but were sold out during the day.

However by then, we were really stuffed, so we decided to buy back couple of slices to the hotel. So home sweet home with a slice of L’Operetta which is Biscuit Dacquoise with Expresso, layered with Feuilantine, Coffee & Chocolate Cream and also Tiramisu.

Once we settled down, we brought out the cakes & were very excited to try out their creations. For the L’Operetta, it has an intense flavor of expresso, the bottom layer of chocolate crunch provides a nice contrast to the Chocolate cream and sponge, visually it is captivating.

However, I feel the cake was rather mediocre, may be is the over expectation or may be it was already in the evening, so the cake did not taste as fresh, as the whole cake tasted very soggy. At $9++ a piece, I think I expect it to be much better, but perhaps there might be other flavours that they are really good at, but was sold out, so couldn’t get to try it.

They do have a list of cakes available :

The restaurant manager and chef are also very friendly and come out to greet the customers. The manager is very courteous and friendly and make you feel very welcome. She even said goodbye to every table for the night before she left for the night.

They also have semi-buffet during lunch time, which is very popular with the Japanese community, you can get to choose one main which is either vegetarian, meat or fish, the buffet spread is all the rest like salad & soup. It will still set you back around $40++ per pax.

Overall, it is a very nice place especially if you are going to splurge a little to celebrate the special occasion. Right now, they also have promotion on 50% off their Japanese Menu, they will decide on one dish out of the Japanese menu at 50% off, that night it was the omelette rice, this promotion was as at 22 Oct, while the menu lasts.
