Lovely place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon

Garlic chickpea purée with truffle oil, olive oil and pomegranate molasses and beetroot tapenade

We’d been to LeVel33 before for their Sunday roast, and this time round we didn’t have the stomach to handle that amount of food again, so we thought we would sample dishes from their beer dining menu – essentially their snack menu.

Tender cubes of tenderloin beef worked surprisingly well with a wasabi and soy dipping sauce. Two of the three dips that accompanied a herbed focaccia and crusty olive bread were delicious – a garlic chickpea purée with truffle oil and a vibrant beetroot tapenade. The third, an olive oil with pomegranate molasses was packed with such a sweet tangy punch that was even stronger than an aged balsamic vinegar, a little too strong for me. I like tasting the olive oil and the molasses overpowered the oil completely.

Awesome cold cut platter

The crispy whitebait came out a little over battered and were a touch greasy, which was disappointing given it’s now pretty much a standard gastropub dish, but luckily the last dish to arrive – the cold cuts – saved the day. Various thinly sliced salamis were delicate and soft with a subtle heat from flecks of chilli..

Pair these nibbles with the brewed- on-premise beers and a good range of wines with that spectacular view and LeVel33 makes a pretty great place to spend a long lady Sunday afternoon with friends.

LeVeL33 @ Marina Bay Financial Centre

Roast fillet of salmon in puff pastry with asparagus spears and hollandaise sauce

The Marina Bay area is simply buzzing with bars and restaurants all eager to take advantage of the views of the Bay. Admittedly, it’s pretty spectacular, and it’s nice to see slight variations of the view from the different locations.

LeVeL33 is a microbrewery on the 33rd floor of the Marina Bay Financial Centre, that is full of natural light that brings the dark timber interior to life. Add chilled beats piped throughout and the nice ambient buzz of other diners as they enjoy their meals with friends and it’s a lovely place to be on a lazy Sunday afternoon.  You can also choose to eat al fresco next to the balcony, closer to the view – although to be avoided for those with vertigo. On the menu was an all-day breakfast, three types of roasts, along with some bigger portions for sharing.

Roast beef with roasted vegetables and Yorkshire pudding

Portions are enormous and I guess that’s them trying to justify the cost of $40 for a roast lunch. Having said that, the food there is good, hearty fare. The roast beef came thickly sliced, piled on top of roasted vegetables, with a yorkshire pudding and lashings of gravy over the entire plate.

My dish was a lovely and light choice – salmon fillet, wrapped in puff pastry on thick asparagus spears with hollandaise sauce.

We’re keen to check out what the menu is like when there’s more choice, apparently the dinner menu is more extensive, and I’d like to see how they transform into a funky bar at night as well.
