Montana Singapore and The Wine Anarchy @ POMO

Montana Singapore has recently launched a new menu and transformed its lower floor into a wine bar called The Wine Anarchy (many people do not know that you can actually enter from the main entrance at the first floor).

Armed with her expert knowledge and training in wine, wine connoisseur Ying will be there to discern your palate and recommend a glass of wine that reflects your personality. You will be able to sample craft whiskies, natural, organic and bio-dynamic wines as well as the world’s first V60 chocolate there.

The Wine Anarchy is opened from 6pm till late, from Tuesday to Sunday. Reservations need to be made in advance.

Montana Singapore is famous for its coconut cold brew. In fact, it is the first in the world to specialise in this form of cold brew. I tried the Gula Melaka ($6.80) version, which is a coconut cold brew with lush notes of caramel and toasted nuts. Unlike other cold brews, which I find sour, this was pleasantly sweet from the gula melaka and coconut water.

Our favourite dish was the Miso Brown Butter Linguine ($15.80). The pasta is served with shiitake, cherry tomatoes, furikake and sous vide free-range egg in miso brown butter sauce. I really loved the sauce (yes, even though this dish is vegetarian)! It was light, savoury and very appetising.

Rated as one of the best waffles in town, Montana Singapore surprises us with a Peking Chicken Confit Waffles ($16.50), which is also now their best seller! Five spice chicken confit, served with chive waffles, served with smoked ginger coleslaw and smoked ginger plum sauce. I am not a fan of ginger, but I enjoyed dipping the chicken into the sauce.

Among the four dishes we had, the one that we liked the least was the Crab Burger with Yuzu Coleslaw ($24). The burger comes with crab and seafood patty, yuzu coleslaw, raisin caper relish and thick cut fries. There was no distinct taste, just a burger that was hot and sour.

We were warned to have the Braised Beef Cheek with Carrot Kimchi ($20.80) last as it was very heavy. The beef cheek is served with sweet potato and potato mash, poached free-range egg and wholemeal toast on the side. It is a must to have a bit of everything with the toasted bread, especially the kimchi!

We ended our lunch with a Caramel Cookie Butter Freak Cake ($14.80). It comes with a vanilla sponge, cookie butter buttercream and salted caramel glaze. It was definitely fun to take pictures of this cake, but I found the buttercream too sweet that it masked the saltiness of the caramel.
