CATCH has always been a brunch staple, so when we heard about the brand new dinner menu, we were more than keen to check it out. Each dish is stocked with fresh flavours, and the menu is bursting with pops of colour and unique twists. Think: burnt octopus with chorizo and beetroot mayo, spicy sea bass laksa with crispy enoki mushrooms, halloumi and hazelnut quinoa – and much more. Our favourites included salmon tartare with avo cream; and the tobiko mayo and crab fries, topped with a runny egg and a generous scoop of truffle caviar. For dessert, pair the hot cinnamon doughnut balls with any of the loose-leaf teas for a warm, decadent finish. And as a bonus, if you head over on a Monday, starters come free with every main, and happy hour runs until 8pm!
