The restaurant had undergone some transformation along the way. In addition to the main dining area, there is now an Iggy’s Gastrobar (picture above) located adjacent to it. It showcases “accessible and innovative plates” to go with the wide range of Burgundy wines in the cellar. There are apparently 25,000 bottles in the cellar.

The Iggy’s main dining area is a squarish, windowless room. There is a large glass panel that provides a view into the spacious kitchen. The glass appears to be fitted with one of those electronic shutters that can change it from clear glass to opaque at selected times. There are a couple of small private dining rooms at Iggy’s Singapore.

For lunch, there are two options in the Iggy’s lunch menu: a $105++ Table d’Hote menu and a $150++ Tasting menu. We selected the latter which was a five course meal with a choice of cod or prime rib for the main course.

Once the ordering and drinks have been selected, the preliminaries started arriving. The was no over-flowing basket of bread at Iggy’s but each person received a couple of slices of bread. We were told it was made with Guinness Stout but its taste was quite imperceptible. A series of small snacks followed. I can’t remember their descriptions but they were delightful.
