Lunch at a Nice and Quiet Restaurant at Orchard Road

Have you noticed that ‘revenge dining’ in SIngapore is on the rise? Popular restaurants are crowded, that is if you manage to even get a seat. Which is why we made our way to a nice and quiet restaurant at Orchard Road recently.

We are finding it harder and harder to get a table for lunch at the last minute, even on midweek weekdays. Especially so for popular dining spots like Dempsey and Orchard Road. The best solution is to plan in advance and book your tables well ahead of time. But for disorganised folks like us, we seem to be unprepared until the day itself. Fortunately there are some lesser known restaurants that we can head to on such occasions. V-Dining, a nice and quiet restaurant at Orchard Road is one such place.

V-Dining Restaurant is located on level 3 of Scotts Square. It is a high-end mall with a calm and pleasing ambience. The restaurant is tucked away in a corner and is hard to notice unless you are looking for it. We have written about it a few times before, the first being when it first opened in 2018. You can find more restaurant information and pictures of it in our posts here and here. As we had experienced at previous visits, less than half the restaurant was occupied at lunch. We are glad that there is still such a nice and quiet restaurant at the Orchard Road area.

Lunch and Express Lunch Menus

Here are pictures of the lunch and express lunch menus at V Dining. We chose the most affordable express lunch option that cost $52. It seems that the price had increased slightly since our visit earlier this year. For those with deeper pockets, the $88 Lunch and $168 Tasting Menu are available.

We thought that the wine list was relatively more wallet-friendly. The featured wines were attractively priced at $8 per glass.

Our Express Lunch at V Dining

Lunch started with a pretty amuse bouche. The light and uncomplicated wine was served with the the brioche bread and porcini butter. It was an enjoyable start to our lunch.

The starter was described very plainly as “crudo, buratta, tomato, tomato water”. “Tomato water” did not sound very appetising. We were glad that it turned out nicer that as written.

The two choices of main courses of the day were Atlantic salmon and Wagyu short rib. We tried one of each.

Both dishes were immaculately prepared and presented beautifully.

The dessert was the most uninteresting part of our meal at Scotts Square – baked orange custard with macademia crumbs. It was not bad but not as good as the rest of the dishes. That was our lunch at a quiet restaurant in Orchard Road to an end.
