White Dog Cafe

Finally get a chance to dine at the "White Dog Cafe" at Vivo on Fri nite after the zoo outing .... w/o the kids. (Why I say finally get a chance bcos my sis has been telling me many mths back that they have tried the restaurant & thought that their food is worth trying.) We quickly sneak out of the house while they are still sleeping. It is really good to have a helper at home. Occasionally, we also need to have some freedom to enjoy a good meal, shop & movie ... *smile*
As it was still early (abt 6pm), we managed to get the window seats. This give us beautiful scenery of the iconic Merlion, cable car, sea & the cruises...
I did not bring along my camera, else would be able to show you how nice the scene is.

Took the photo using our HP though.....

We ordered the mushroom soup, crispy duck confit & crispy salmon with roe. We were told that the restaurant do not serve set dinner, so all ala carte please.
We were starving & forgotten to take a pic of the mushroom soup. haha
The soup has plenty of mushroom bits, the taste is not too bad. The portion is big enough to be shared by 2.

The crispy duck is fantastic. I am those who don't usually take duck meat bcos I cannot stand the "duck smell". This duck meat is wonderfully tender & panfried to a crispy skin which sets it apart from other duck meat. The skin is crispy yet not oily and the meat has got enough spice. The overall taste when chew together somehow resemble our familiar KFC original recipe. This dish has change my perspective of duck meat ... I am surprised that it can turned out to be so tantalising.


This salmon smells fishy when it was served. I duno why....
But after a while the smell is gone. The meat is soft & easily sliced apart. The roe is fresh & crunchy. It goes well with the sauce.
However, I am feeling rather full half way through the dish. This makes me ponder if the starchy mushroom soup could be the "culprit".

As such, we did not order any dessert.

Overall, it was a good & relaxing meal after a tired day. The dinner cost S$50+. Try it @ White Dog Cafe, 1 Harbourfront Walk, #02-131/132 VivoCity Singapore 098585. (65) 6376 9970
