Elegantology's Grand Launch!
Fresh from the pot, I've just attended Elegantology Gallery & Restaurant's grand launch on Friday. It was amazing on how the whole event was put together as it was done so finely. Held at Publika Square, a good 900 invitees were there to celebrate the launch together
Elegantology Gallery & Restaurant brings the finest of things together in its food and fashion. Fine dining food is served in the restaurant, created by celebrity chefs Johnny Fua & Sherson Lian, while in the gallery, The creative director, Beatrice Looi showcases elegant men's fashion designed by established local fashion designers such as Daniel Chong, Hayden Koh, Ian Chang, Jason Zeck Lee, Joe Chia, Justin Yap, Michael Ong and Venie Tee.
We started off by having a tour in the restaurant and gallery itself, and a cocktail reception to wait till everyone has arrived

As the event began to start, we were brought into Publika Square where we were able to experience the launch. The main highlight for the night was a fashion show brought together by the local designers, while we indulge in awesome gastronomic cuisine and Martell VSOP
I am glad that I'm one of the VIP's which allowed me to sit and dine with the rest. Others had to stand outside and watch the show =P
Fine dining at its best

So of course as it started, We were served a 4 course fine dining experience which was really great on the palate. The food was distinctively crafted and made in such a way, it goes well with Martell itself, and has a great flavour to it
As for starters, I had:
Smoke muscovy duck with foie gras mousse, shitake mushroom terrine red onion jam, grilled korean "bae"
I'm really a big fan of foie gras (yes eventhough i know the process of how its made) and I would really say the foiegras mousse served just melted in my mouth and the smoke duck was great
Kelantanese laksa, hokkaido scallop, sambal twist, quail egg and ulam julliene
It had a really nice texture to the soup itself and with the scallop, it made everything better
24 hours at 77 degrees, beef rib with glazed carrots and shimeji mushrooms
The beef was so tender that you could even use a spoon to just slice it. the sauce really accommodated it well too
Sesame Sorbet with Compressed Melons, yogurt cream candied walnut macaroon, anjou pear
Tell me who can say no to macaroons? and the sesame sorbet was delightful
As the food was served, the fashion show started by showcasing some of the works from the local designers

After the fashion show was over, it wasn't the end of the event. DJ Nadine came on to stage where she spun great music for the invited guest that were happily socializing with awesome Martell VSOP

All in all, I definitely think Elegantology is a great place to be. Do take some time off and see their collections, or just dine in to a spectacular experience!
