If you’re after uncomplicated Italian dishes that are light on the palate, The Lighthouse does not disappoint.
If you haven’t got the time to go through the rather extensive menu, opt for the fuss-free set lunch menus that often include classics like seafood linguine tossed in clear white wine sauce. Prepared in traditional Italian style, the dish is light and appetising, with the base flavours of garlic and olive oil lifting the natural sweetness of tomatoes and seafood.
Also impressive is the moist beef carpaccio – its natural smokiness has been amplified by arugula, aged Reggiano cheese and black truffle shavings. Layered over one another, the separate elements make up one pretty appetiser with complex flavours.
The main to order here is the Spartan’s pork chop. Named to reflect the restaurant’s past as a humble canteen for civil servants, the dish comprises crispy and juicy breaded pork chop drizzled in sweet and sour sauce and served with grilled tomatoes, potatoes and peas.
Though served in a European style, this combination brings to mind Singapore’s Hainanese pork chop dish, a clever local touch especially as we were, at the same time, enjoying views of the country’s icons – including the Singapore Flyer and the Marina Bay floating platform.
