10 Scotts at Grand Hyatt Singapore

As mentioned in our mooncake post, it was nice of Grand Hyatt Singapore to invite us to the hotel's residential-style lounge for an evening chill out.

Unlike most hotel lounges that adopts an open concept at hotel lobby, 10 Scotts comprises of different sections, with the theme of a home.

The main entrance of 10 Scotts brings one to the library with wireless internet access and rental of personal laptop computers and iPads (upon request). Furnished with sofas and a range of magazines within reach, this is definitely a nice place for a quiet read.

The main area of 10 Scotts is what the hotel calls the living and dining room. At the end of the dining room, one can enjoy a simplistic view of a waterfall and for more oriental feel, the collection room is just round the corner.

The main highlight of 10 Scotts would be the communal table at the dining room which also serves as an open kitchen, allowing guests to see the chefs in action.

The entire layout of 10 Scotts emits an intimate ambience and be it an afternoon tea or a leisure evening cocktail, we can't deny that it feels being in a luxurious home.

crab cakes, remoulade sauce

The following dishes are available every evening from 6pm till late on the à la carte menu.

Crab Cakes are a must-try for this is the signature of the hotel. Generous crab meat, fried to perfection, no doubt an all-time favourite. The accompanying remoulade sauce gives a nice tangy aftertaste. Addictive, I would say.

hand carved loch fyne scottish salmon, capers, shallots, dill, cream cheese

Hand-carved Loch Fyne Scottis Salmon would be something not to be missed for salmon lovers. This premium cut salmon are fresh and light on the palette to go with an evening cocktail.

duck rillette, gherkins

Duck Rillette is both Yuan's and my favourite for this is not overly salty and does remind us of the appetizers we had in Florence. Generous servings of the meat, with the moisture content just right. This is one where we cannot resist multiple helpings, especially when eaten with the in-house bread.

roasted chorizo sausage

Chorizo Sausage, might be salty to some but wows when it comes to its flavour.

Yuan and I are not frequent lounge goers and when it comes to snacks associated with cocktails, we are not familiar at all. However, the experience 10 Scotts provides is something very different from the previous few lounges we have visited.

Unlike the regular finger food such as potato wedges and chips, 10 Scotts aims to bring about a different selection of snackers, priced between $18++ to $24++ and are available daily from 6pm till late. To a certain extent, the dishes available on the evening à la carte menu does resemble the appetizers we have came across in Italy and the buffet lunch at Basilico, The Regent Singapore so thumbs up to the menu.

homemade fig tart, clotted cream

A meal would not be complete without sweets and the homemade tart is something we recommend. The fruits that comes with the tart varies from afternoon to evening and is made fresh daily.

With a nice thin crust filled with frangipani and fresh fig, the contrast of textures is splendid.

Executive Chef Lucas Glanville

We were also honoured to be able to chat with Executive Chef Lucas and it was interesting to hear his team of 180 chefs working together to bring about high quality food to the hotel guests.

It was of no doubt a beautiful evening spent at Grand Hyatt Singapore and we would like to express our biggest thank you to Marketing Communications Manager, Ms. Patricia Yong, Assistant Manager (Public Relations), Ms. Melissa Tan and Ms Sandee Goh for their time to host us, not forgetting Executive Chef Lucas Glanville to take his time off to chat with us.

Breakfast is available from 7am to 10:30am daily with an option of a continental buffet at $28++ per pax or from the à la carte menu.

Lunch is available from 11:30am to 2pm with a selection of appetisers, main courses and desserts. à la carte dishes are priced from S$14++ onwards, which includes a coffee or tea.

Priced at $38++ or $68++ (with free flowing champagne) from Mondays to Fridays and $48++ or $78++ (with free flowing champagne) on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays. The menu features a pleasing mix of both local and international favourites with homemade scones with raspberry jam, kaya and clotted cream a must-try.
