5 Senses Bistro with the freshest ingredients

What is your first impression of 5 senses? You might have thought it’s some biology class topic but no, it is actually the name of a restaurant! Isn’t it interesting? 5 Senses literally means your taste, smell, hearing, sight and touch which the restaurant wants you to feel when dining in.

5 Senses Bistro is helmed by Andrea Lim and Alina Har, this couple is full of passion and are food enthusiast. They are one of the most hardworking and talented people I know. Located at the Bedok Point Mall serves the freshest ingredients prepared on that day. They are well known to only provide the available fresh products to customers without keeping them overnight. Once sold, you have to come back another day. If you are looking for something out of the menu they can specially prepare it for you too if you inform them in advance!

I was invited to try their signature items such as the Smoked Chicken Breast, Pan-Seared Salmon, Furikake Fries and Chocolate Lava Cake. In summary, it is so delicious I finished everything without leaving one bit!

Pan-Seared Pink Norwegian Salmon
You can practically get salmon anywhere, but a good salmon has to be soft and moist on the inside and slightly crispy on the outer layer of skin. Most importantly is the freshness of the fish that makes the whole dish stands out. What impressed me is that there is no trace of fishy smell at all!Not only is the salmon heavenly, the healthy vegetable serves as a perfect side complementing with the main item. Bravo!

Semi-House Smoked Chicken Breast
Don’t expect frozen items here because you will never find it. They are quite daring to use chicken breast because if not cooked properly the meat would be tough to consume. To my surprise, it is succulent and soft, wrapped with bacon and grilled to to a nice texture. Absolutely delectable, the chicken taste is undoubtedly fresh.

Furikake Fries
There are several flavoured fries in different places, but 5 Senses Bistro has something that I like because it is super addictive! Garnished with Furikake, a delicious Japanese seasoning that is fragrant and sweet. Not too overwhelming and just nice to eat it as a snack.

Chocolate Lava Cake
You can’t imagine how hard it is to produce a perfect chocolate lava cake. You need to have the right skill and time control is essential. Over here it has scored high points for the outer skin that is not too thick and there is over-flowing thick chocolate ‘lava’ oozing out when sliced. Another amazing dish as the rest.
