Adrift

Adrift is a 4,000 sqft restaurant-bar located in the hotel Tower 2 lobby of Marina Bay Sands, offering a good range of dishes that incorporate Southeast Asian Flavours and Californian flair by Celebrity Chef David Myers, also, not forgetting the list of cocktails created by Sam Ross, a famous New York-based bartender.

With restaurant week, i managed to secure a booking slot for their 3 courses meal through the online system. Booking was a breeze and coupled with a few phone calls reminder from the restaurant nearing the date.

Interior
Interior was superb, comfortably arrange to suit the modern taste of diners, creating a unique dinning scene.

Dining Environment
On my table
Welcoming us, the chef had given every table a plate of rice crisp as a compliment to his guests. It was a kind gesture as it gave customers some time to settle down and feel comfortable in the environment while enjoying the rice crisp dipping into the Wasabi flavoured mayonnaise.

Something to Start

Kicking off our 3 courses meal with Edamame Soup which never failed to impress. We detected hints of pleasant  favour from the Edamame  and vanilla soy milk emulsion elevated the presentation among the pool of velvety soup. Despite its thickness, it was not too overwhelming and we managed to polish off everything including its tomato confit and peas from the edamame.

An intriguing dish with ginger seaweed vinaigrette & kinome. It packs a mouthful of flavour and both the citrus as well as sourly taste left my stomach welcoming more food.

Their Wagyu Cheeseburger is strongly advocate for! Medium done Wagyu beef patty was better than what I could ask for.With the just right fat marbling, its juiciness along with the melting gruyere cheese were such an awesome combination as well as with pickled jalapeno and rocket leaves topping up the taste of the cheeseburger.

Shaved cheese scattered all over the tomato jam that were generously spread on the toasted bun and were yummy!

On usual occasion, this burger would cost about $25.

Sake marinated salmon were topped with poached broccoli flowers. Despite having lemon vinaigrette on the seared salmon, the man who tasted my food still find it tasted a little on the fishy side and felt that the meat was with medium done-ness. Given a choice over the two mains, I would prefer the burger.

Dessert

Finally to the 3rd and also the last course of our lunch. We have both their desserts stated on the menu and Calamansi threw a surprise on the table. Dessert is cooling and made up of Creme Fraiche (meaning Fresh Cream) and also creamsicle.

Thinking about it now, it's making me drools. The seperate thin layer of sweet crisp was topped with shredded calamansi zest which gave a sweet, sour and bitter combination among the chilling dessert.

Not to mention their caramel french toast whereby Toast was thick, decorated with zig zag kopi syrup and topped with a scoop of coconut sorbet, giving both a warm and cold moments in this dish.

We had another round of complimentary items by Adrift as soon as we paid our bills and they were special packaged popcorns. It was a nice guesture to end our meal, also leaving a good impression to diners like me.

Talking about Professionalism in their service, that is definite, not mentioning their food that was never fail to amaze me throughout. This is a great place to hangout if you are looking for a better environment and have abit more to stretch on your wallets.
