Bistro One Zero Three sounds quite interesting right?Being the inquisitive me, i was naturally attracted to the name, andhence the visit to the place. Located at Pasir Panjang, its not a placewhere you’ll imagine a restaurant like Bistro One Zero Three will besituated. Nevertheless, the ‘ulu’ place makes it fun to go to, asthough like we are on a food-hunting trait.
Initially we thought it was near the Haw Par Villa area, so we startedlooking for it there, but then how wrong we were, Bistro One Zero Threeis at the other end of Pasir Panjang Road, quite near to PSA Building.If you are going there by train, i suggest stopping at HarbourFront andtake a bus there, its only a couple of bus-stops away fromHarbourFront.
The cosy 52 seater bistro is into its tenth-month, and started by theowner Eric, together with his sister and his sister-in-law as the chef.Stepping into Bistro One Zero Three, we felt totally at home, thehomely-wood furniture plays a part, but it is the friendly service ofthe owners who welcomed us enthusiastically, and serving us ice-waterwhile we were going through the menu, that impressed us.
The Menu comprises of sandwiches, gourmet salads, some sides, spaghettiand the mains. They are actually in the midst of introducing more itemsto the menu, but meanwhile, this are the options available.
Besides dining, Bistro One Zero Three also provides services forbirthday-party events, company functions. The previous night they justhad a event where guests let their hairs down and party till late nightat the bistro. The bistro is a draw for the working crowd duringweekdays, and on fridays & saturdays there are people like you andme who specially visit the place.
Well, i like the early-bird feeling, when we got there for a earlylunch, we had the whole place to ourselves, totally like what iexperienced in Sweet Indulgence!Being hungry people, we went through the menu and didn’t have muchproblem ordering the food. My dining companion being a Salmon-lover,naturally she’ll order Pan-fried Salmon. My two other mates had Cajunchicken wrap and Salmon & crab meat spaghetti, while i had thebacon, ham, mushroom spaghetti.
Salmon & Crab Meat Spaghetti ($14.50)
We began our meal at Bistro One Zero Three with the Salmon & Crabmeat Spaghetti. With two generous piece of salmon on the tomato-basedspaghetti, it got our salivary gland working even before we startedeating! While slurping down the pasta, we can also taste the crab meatwhich goes quite well together.
Bacon, Ham & Mushroom Spaghetti ($13.50)
There are tomato, carbonara style and aglio olio options to choosefrom, I chose carbonara style since the other spaghetti istomato-based. The carbonara Bacon, Mushroom Spaghetti here at BistroOne Zero Three is slightly different from the usual one you’ll find inother restaurants.
Usually the egg in carbonara style will be mixed together and cook withthe heat of the pasta itself, but in this case, the chef put on histhinking cap and played with his creativity by leaving the egg yolk ontop of the pasta. This is a pleasant surprise for us knowing the chefactually put in his heart & soul into making something differentfrom the norm.
Well, i’ll preferred the salmon spaghetti to this one, not that this isnot good, but after trying both pasta, we come to a consensus that thetomato-based spaghetti here taste better!
Pan-fried Salmon ($16.50)
With Balsamic glaze & acompanied with seasonal vegetables, thePan-fried salmon is a must-have for all the salmon-lovers out there.Balsamic dressing is a traditional flavoured vinegar commonly used inItalian cuisine, the Balsamic glaze here added a slight twist ofItaliano to the salmon.
Cajun Chicken Wrap ($15.90)
Tomato herb Tortilla & Mesclun mix are found inside the CajunChicken Wrap. The chicken wrap does give me an oddly feeling of‘popiah’. The two Cajun chicken wrap serving is rather small, anddefinitely not enough to serve a grown-up (well depending on theappetite also). My mate wasn’t full after he finished it.
Warm Brownie w/ French Vanilla ice cream ($5)
Who can resist the temptation of desserts after a meal? Not me, thereis always room in my stomach for them! For the record, i love mydesserts more than my main.
The warm brownie together with a scoop of the cold ice cream seems to match nicely together. The brownie is not too sweet also.
Panna cotta with Mocha ($5)
One thing about Bistro One Zero Three is that they currently havelimited desserts selection, only two! So we ordered both the brownieand this one to share. The owners are looking for new additions to thedesserts section, so we had to make do with this two for now.
At first glance, we thought that the dessert was a soup, but on secondnote, it was not! Panna Cotta is actually an Italian Dessert made bysimmering together cream, milk and sugar, mixing this with gelatin, andletting it cool until set.
Panna Cotta is usually eaten plained or sweetened with vanilla,chocolate or fruits. But the one we had at Bistro One Zero Three gave adifferent twist by adding Mocha to flavoured the dessert.
Total bill for 4 person (4 mains & 2 desserts)adds up to $82.86 (including GST & service charge). Overall theexperience at Bistro One Zero Three is a positive one, and its a goodplace to chill out & dine with your friends. The place isn’t reallyinaccessible if you know where it is, just a few bus-stops away fromHarbourfront. And the cozy environment and friendly service from theboss definitely makes it a plus for a revisit, but they need to work ontheir desserts selections if they are to satisfy my desserts-demand.
