The Royal Mail is a quiet, hidden gem, tucked away on the second floor of the non-descript Ascott Raffles Place serviced apartment building. It is conveniently located in the CBD, but hidden from sight.
I was invited for a tasting sometime back and thoroughly enjoyed the items served. The Royal Mail specialises in contemporary British cuisine, with an emphasis on roasts.
What is contemporary British cuisine? I was thinking about Gordon Ramsay and was probably close.
Here are the items I tried:
My recommendation is to go for the Honey Glazed Kurobuta Pork and the Seafood Bouillabaisse. Both were crowd-pleasers, especially the Kurobuta pork which I can do with a second or even a third helping!
I am not much of a dessert person as I am not fond of sweet food, but I like the creative take on some of the traditional British desserts like Eton Mess and Sticky Date Pudding. Not bad in taste and they are really pretty to look at.
As you can see, prices are on the steep side at The Royal Mail. However, you are paying for quality – just look at the ingredients used. The chef seems to have a penchant for top notch Japanese ingredients btw.
This is a nice little restaurant for a romantic date or a quiet business meal.
Definitely worth another visit. 🙂
