Went for an invited tasting session yesterday at Blisshouse!
Have heard a lot about Blisshouse – food as well as the awesome decor! I missed the Blogger’s Party event held by StreetDirectory the other time, when I was having bad pregnancy symptoms. So I was quite ecstatic to have received the invite this time round 🙂
I didn’t get to pop by The Central very often, so I was a little worried about losing my way. Especially when I last remember that the layout of the mall is quite confusing. Thankfully, Blisshouse is quite easy to find!
The restaurant is located at the Yellow Zone on the 3rd floor. Just take the escalator up from the main entrance of the mall, and there is also a useful directory to help.
Ambience | There is an enchanting story of a pair of lovers behind the concept of Blisshouse. So they have this indoor garden and home concept in the restaurant. Simply a whimsical and romantic setting for dinner.
We were seated just outside the “Home”, at the “Garden”. And this is what we see from our table. I super appreciate the Christmas mood decor at the restaurant – since I probably will be spending this year’s Christmas at home haha!
Ace from Blisshouse came to introduce about the restaurant’s concept as well as suggest recommendations for us.
You would be happy to find that Blisshouse covers quite a wide range of food – starters, pizza, pasta, meats, fish, blended drinks, cocktails, mocktails, juice, soda, tea, coffee, alcohol and wine. I also realise that their wine menu is quite good. They have wine (glass/bot) from different countries like Australia, Argentina, France, Italy, Spain, Chile etc. I see they have my favourite Moscato d’Asti as well!
Blisshouse also has this Kids’ Menu. Items such as Ham & Cheese Sandwich with Fries, Nuggets with Fries, Fish & Chips, Ham & Cheese Penne, are priced at $5 – $6, which is really affordable.
We had Bliss’s Yogurt Passionfruit Perfume (hubby’s) and Bliss’s Vanilla Strawberry Happiness (mine). I can only say that their recommendation is really good, because hubby likes his drink better and I like mine better lol.
I expected something milky and heavy; but instead, it has a light berry ice blended taste.
Totally doesn’t fight tummy space with the yummy food to come haha!
It has a stronger yogurt/milky taste, which the hubby enjoyed better 🙂
For starters, we had Nachos and Baked Mushrooms.
I super love the Nachos! It just feels like pizza topping on the slightly salted, crispy Nachos! It’s not too cheesy – even the hubby who dislikes cheese enjoyed this so much. Great starter for sharing with friends. I only wished they had some salsa dip to go with hehe.
Smoked chicken, salsa, aioli, Jalapeno chilli, mozzarella and cheddar on crispy corn chips.
Mushroom lovers will love this! Juicy, succulent mushrooms that are really well-seasoned. The dark sauce on the plate is not chocolate sauce! Haha, it’s balsamic reduction cooked over a longer time to get a thicker mixture. I like the taste of the sauce with the mushrooms.
Duck leg bone in sous vide with orange and thyme, served with roasted potatoes and ratatouille with orange sauce.
Breaded pork loin stuffed with pesto & cheddar, fried to perfection, on roasted garlic white sauce.
Served with mashed potatoes and warm vegetables.
topped with mozzarella and cheddar and chilli.
The mascarpone part of the tiramisu is quite nice. But we didn’t particularly enjoy the overly soaked sponge fingers.
A little too soft and soggy for us.
