SELA restaurant Seah Street

Opened for business just few mouths and we are invited to evaluate the menu specially created and prepared by the head of chef Mohammad Shahrom, who is specialized in gourmet European cuisine. SELA is a modern European restaurant trying to establish the footage with its creative food menu. Flipping through the menu, you will probably realized there isn’t too many choices, it is really the idea by the restaurant of keeping the menu simple and just focus on quality.

Starter

Carpaccio of Scallops, Thai Fish Sauce Chilli Dressing $16.50

SELA 3

We are not the fan of eating raw seafood, however, the fresh scallops was surprisingly good with its sweetness and soft texture coupled with the Thai fish chilli sauce made it a real refreshing starter.

Grilled Asparagus, Poached Egg and Parma Ham $15.50

SELA 4

We definitely enjoyed the freshness of the green and the Parma Ham, regarded as the original and true prosciutto, the combination was pleasantly appetitisng.

Tapas

Salmon Skewers, Grape Relish $13.00

 SELA 6

The skewed Salmon was served on a heated Himalayan Salt Plates, the beautiful pinky slab is a gift of nature from Himalayas which is primordial sea deposits that once was an ocean. Leading chefs have discovered the creative way of using this pinky block to whip out unique delicacies. The sweetness of the onion and grapes perfectly naturalized the saltiness of the salt. A nice Tapas we all love.

Miso Squid, Sweet Peas, Salmon roes $10.00

SELA 5

Not easy to cook this cephalopod creature, it can be rubbery and bland if the chef doesn’t have the good culinary skills. The chef has not disappointed us with the perfectly grilled and nice charred aroma.

Mains

Baked Miso Chilean Seabass, Edamame & Sweet Peas $27.00

SELA 7

Chilean Seabass actually is cod fish by a layman term. Pan fried and sealed to perfection and allows you to enjoy the rich omega oil from the sweet Snow White meat.

Herb Crusted Lamb Rack, Braised Red Cabbage, Banana Shallots, Lamb $32.00

 SELA 8

We are not so much the red meat fanatic thought not the taboo of eating it. The lamb was tender but we still have some difficulties to slice it, the layer of fat seems to pose some challenges. Seasoning was good and flavourful.

Desserts 

Gula Melaka Creme Caramel

SELA 9 

We can appreciate the fragrance of the Gula Melaka and the silky soft Creme. A sweet dessert that hard to resist.

Lemon Cheese Tart

SELA 10

The sourness of the lemon and the cheese blended well to make another delectable dessert.

Our verdict, using fresh and quality ingredients with a good culinary skills are the biggest attraction by SELA, if you enjoy European delicacies, the fine food at SELA should be able to entice your palette.
