Modern Indian open-fire grill restaurant Revolver unveils an omakase dinner experience featuring a chef’s selection of spice-forward, technique-driven dishes exploding with flavour.
We love Revolver for many reasons – the progressive Indian restaurant’s inventive fire-driven dishes that combine top-notch produce with both classic South Asian and contemporary European culinary techniques, for one.
And the spice. Oh, the clever use of spice! As befitting a restaurant named for a firearm, its open kitchen – home to a modern custom charcoal grill as well as a traditional tandoor – issues forth dishes loaded with fiery spice that are sure to tease and tantalise palates.
Revolver normally offers one S$99++ six-course tasting menu at lunch, and three during dinner – the S$169++ six-course ‘Discovery’, a more premium S$229++ eight-course ‘Experience’, as well as a S$159++ eight-course ‘Vegetarian’ one for herbivore types. But earlier this month Revolver unveiled a new indulgent S$299++ ‘Omakase’ menu, offering a chef’s selection of what it promises will be a showcase of the season’s finest produce while sticking to their rapid-fire culinary guns.
With Revolver running Bullet 8 – its eighth rotating menu since the restaurant opened in end-2021 – this not only allows the chefs to tap their creative juices but also draw on favourites from previous menus. So you may see its signature paneer dish – flown in fresh from Delhi on a regular basis – served in a myriad of fiery ways. Or any kind of fresh premium ocean catch that will come spiced and flame-kissed from grill to plate, like grilled Australian rock lobster smothered with a spice paste that may just include smoky Naga chilli from its fifth menu.
It’s all up to Chef Saurabh Udinia and his team.
But if the new Revolver ‘Omakase’ menu sounds too excessive or random, Bullet 8 can suffice. Its ‘Experience’ menu, for example, offers the likes of a delectable Japanese hamachi (yellowtail) collar that’s been marinated in garam masala and grilled, or fresh Australian marron served with a moreish coriander and mint butter. Its signature fresh paneer this time comes stuffed with cashew nuts and pickled mango, and served atop a mango and habanero salsa.
And not to forget their kulchette – their own mini version of kulcha flatbread – which for this season is stuffed with parmesan and then covered in shaved black truffle.
Whichever you choose, you’re in for an explosive, fiery time.
Revolver’s Bullet 8 menu runs from now till 31 March 2023.
