This is not to be confused with Lola’s Cafe at Kovan; Lolla is an atas, quaint, and pretty restaurant at Ann Siang area.

LollaThe basement seating were in “The Last Supper” style, which we didn’t really fancy. Awkward to be hearing everyone’s conversations unintentionally. I think it’s much more interesting to sit at the bar counter where you can watch the chefs in action.

Sea Urchin Pudding

S$19 (half portion)

Highly recommended, mind blowing. The delicious black pudding at the bottom was made up of squid ink, egg yolk, cream, tomato paste then topped with fresh creamy sea urchin. The full portion ($36) will give you double the amount of sea urchin. This first dish quickly raised our expectations for the rest of the food.

Scrambled Eggs with Bottarga di Muggine

S$22

Once known as the poor man’s caviar, Bottarga is the salted, pressed and dried roe of Muggine (gray mullet). To be honest, all I tasted was super salty scrambled eggs, and $22 for that is an expensive price to pay.

Tuna Belly Chutoro Tartare

S$39

Nice, but not out-of-this-world.

Grass-fed ribeye steak

S$52

The plating was disappointing for a S$52 steak, which made the one at The Royal Mail seemed even more outstanding. To be fair, the 300g cut was done right and extremely filling, but it just felt like one whole chunk of meat down your throat with no sides to go along. Forget about that lump of horseradish – it was way too sweet.

The only thing worth going back for is their ‘Sea Urchin Pudding.’ I’d definitely get the full portion next time.
