Muse @ Jaya One


A low-profile outlet at Jaya One, but its wide-ranging menu makes it worth a visit.


Lamb meatballs in Guinness-infused sauce. Hearty and tender, but only enjoyable if you're game for gamy meat and can bear the potent taste of beer.


Giant squid stuffed with anchovies, garlic, rosemary & tomato, served with mushroom risotto. The squid was flavour-packed and not rubbery at all, but the risotto was bland.


Roasted quail with sage leaves. Well-marinated, juicy and less bony than expected.


Sea bass baked with bread crust, served with alfalfa sprouts & sauteed potatoes. Fresh-tasting, succulent fish; the crust provided an interesting texture, though the alfalfa seemed like a pointless addition.


Haagen Dazs strawberry sorbet with champagne. A fun concoction, full of fizz.


Apple pie with strawberry gelato. Mediocre pastry that we should have skipped.


Mojito & Yellow Bird cocktails.


Redhill Chardonnay & Cabernet Sauvignon (Australia).


Muse,
Jaya One.

  2. Tng: heh, maybe there's no such thing as a good Guinness dish for those of us who aren't really into beer :D give me some red wine-marinated lamb instead!

  12. Oh this looks fabulous for a place like Jaya One. Almost too high end for it. In any case it's good to add to the variety of places to eat here. What's the price range like?

  15. babe_kl: oooh, maybe they're not too good at dealing with crowds? they tend to be less packed compared to many of the other outlets at jaya one...
