[Media Invite] Exclusive Lunch Screening of "HANNIBAL" SEASON 3 at Bacchanalia Singapore by AXN

It was such a nice experience joining the rest of the guests to Bacchanalia Singapore for the exclusive lunch screening with AXN having their world-first global premiere of HANNIBAL SEASON 3 episode 1 (Friday, June 5 at 1pm). This first episode was simulcast at the same time as the US premiere.




"Hannibal" Season 3, Episode 301 - Antipasto
Season 3 started off with a different scenery from the previous two seasons, in beautiful Italy, where Dr. Hannibal Lecter is out hunting openly. A series even darker than before with Bedelia "observing" and soon "participating" following Hannibal's act of killing. She mentioned, "It was reckless" and "I was curious", revealing much of Bedelia’s inner darkness. After the first episode, many of us are curious to find out more about their relationships and how their next move will be..
The dark and haunting series "Hannibal" returns for a third season, revealing the fates of characters hanging in the balance, and the continuing psychological cat and mouse games they face. 
After the shocking events of the season two finale, Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe - accompanied by his psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) - sporting a new identity, but servicing the same insatiable appetite. As the lives of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Jack (Laurence Fishburne) and Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) converge toward Hannibal again, each with their own motivations to catch him once and for all, their deadly dance turns in startling and unexpected way.

Modern European restaurant with comfortable seatings.
Loving the large space in-between tables.

Cauliflower Gratin
Tasty deep fried cauliflower florets, white truffle & cheese foam, gremolata.


Tahitian Vanilla Confit Salmon
Tahitian vanilla confit of scottish salmon, fennel, orange and black olive salad. Love the clean and smooth texture of the salmon.


Chicken & Cheese
Tender chicken breast, reconstructed cheese slice, mountain yam puree, tarragon infused whey.


Pineapple Tatin
Slow cooked pineapple in vanilla syrup, pistachio & white chocolate crumble, cardamom vanilla ice-cream. An interesting combination of pineapple with vanilla giving the palate a tropical adventure.


Thank you AXN for the wonderful lunch arrangement and all the lovely souvenirs!
Thank you Fif for coming along with me as well. i hope you did enjoy as much as i do! =)




We then had a short walk at the newly opened Capitol Piazza (near City Hall MRT station), and tried the waffle ice-cream from Dazzling Cafe. A beautiful place with beautiful food presentation (Picture-worthy) but their waffle with ice-cream tasted just average. Maybe we should order their popular Dazzling Classic Honey Toast the next time..
