When I first heard the name Open Door Policy my first thought was – it was too hot for Al Fresco. But no, it was refreshingly cool when we entered the restaurant and no doors left open, thank goodness. There was a scent of rose water when we entered and I loved that. Open Door Policy also reminds me of what an ex-boss used to say – that you could consult him at any time – one of my better bosses.
We had a lovely experience here. First the cosy yet chic decor impressed us and the gourmet food was wonderful too. I don’t know much about describing good food, but I can say that I recommend the chicken confit – the meat was so tender, it fell off the bone. Had to have the strong coffee here too. D liked the souffle. It was supposed to be pistachio but it tasted a lot like pandan to me. Prices are pretty steep though. We almost could not get a table as you need to make a reservation. From the lunch hour crowd you can tell that this place is extremely popular even though it’s relatively new on the scene.
The ambience here is lovely and I think I’ll just let my photos do the talking. A sky light seems to be a must in all new hip restaurants. Personally I love it. Also loved the unique gold lamps.
The piccolo latte, hot chocolate and the pistachio souffle. Wanted pancakes but it’s only available on the weekends.
I can never resist over-photographing coffee.
