Neon Pigeon is an Eating Drinking Social house that embodies the culture of urban living fused with underground vibes. The name pays tribute to two main influences:
NEON: after Tokyo, which is commonly referred to as the “Neon City”
PIGEON: the constant seen in all urban cities
We dropped by 1 evening after work to check it out. The kitchen was helmed by Dutch Master Chef Dennis Smit.
We tried the Avocado with ginger, lotus root and pickled eggplant first.
Next up was the Hamachi Tartare with quail egg. The Hamachi was pretty fresh and refreshing on the palette.
This spicy baby corn with spicy miso dressing topped with corn crumble was not too bad. Quite a healthy dish to round off the warm appetizers.
The main course of Grilled Barramundi was pretty well executed. Light and easy flavour without being too overpowering on the senses.
Tonkatsu Duck Breast topped with Ponzu and Yuzu sauce was served next. Not many eateries serve duck tonkatsu but Neon Pigeon’s intepretation was pretty well executed and we will be back for return visits.
To round off the evening, we had sea berry sour Hokkaido crispy meringue. A simple and no-frills dessert executed quite delicately and perfectly.
