Media Tasting at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel
In the midst of the uncertainty of coronavirus COVID-19, glad to see that Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel has taken practical measures and observed the utmost standard in the preparation of our food.

We were recommended to try this poke bowl if we want something more unique. The chef focuses on seasoning the ingredients over the sauces. The poke bowl is healthily filled with conscous with raisins and mint leaves, shredded cabbage, corn, kidney bean, orange and walnut. Unfortunately, we couldn’t taste much of the seasoning except the natural taste of the ingredients. The poke bowl is great for light options.

Paper-thin, tender slices of rare beef fillet, with a delicious dressing and salad like parmesan, hazelnut and capers. The combination of flavours is amazing and definitely opens our appetite.
Beef Carpaccio (Grissini Restaurant) at S$20++.
We were extremely lucky to try the last portion of Grissini Josper Grill Octopus. The Grissini Josper Grill Octopus are first char-grilled in the Josper grill oven. It is then plated with Mediterranean octopus tentacle, potatoes, kalamata, heirloom tomatoes and finally drizzled with pinzimonio sauce. The char-grilled octopus imparts a nice, smoky flavour and tender to bite. Glad that they’re not rubbery at all. The pinzimonio sauce leaves the same clean and refreshed taste in the mouth.

Another impressive dish from Grissini Restaurant will be Black Ink Tonnaralli. The wild Mediterranean langoustines are set on a pool of prawns, tomato sauce, lemon zest, cherry tomato and white wine. We were impressed with the homemade pasta sauce made from scratch using ripe tomatoes. It makes a flavourful yet light pasta sauce with the assorted seafood like wild Mediterranean langoustine, prawns cooked to perfection. Pssst, did I mention? These pasta are homemade too!

We chose a citrusy dessert to end off the meal. The Lemon cream and cherry dessert is filled with lemon custard cream, amarena cherry jam and finally a scoop of vanilla gelato. The lemon taste was kept to a minimum, cherry jam was good, appetising and vanilla pods were spotted in the vanilla gelato.
Lemon cream and cherry at S$15.
Even if you’re not a fan of coffee, you’ll grow to enjoy this (like myself). Very fragrance bittersweet espresso with coffee liqueur and rich and thick mascarpone cream.
Chef’s Signature coffee tiramisu at S$15.
