Japanese-American chef Bouk Cebula’s light-drenched, warehouse-like restaurant, bar and lounge is seductively hidden in a corner of Robertson Walk’s second floor. Notable dishes include the quesadilla with smoked duck and the tarte a roon, vanilla ice cream and stewed apples served on a macaroon base. The Montreal poutine is a curved plate of thick, self-cut fries layered with roasted mushrooms, pan-seared foie gras and grated Emmental cheese, doused with beef gravy and decorated with fresh herbs.

Intimate Setting but a Little Pricey
Hummerstons is hidden on the second floor of Robertson Walk. It was a little difficult to find initially, but thankfully we saw the sign from the ground floor, near No Signboard Seafood.
The ambience of Hummerstons is very comforting, and the slightly dark interior makes for a very intimate setting.
As I am a pescetarian, I immediately zoomed in for the Portobello mushroom steak. It’s a vegetarian dish, and it caught my eye right from the get go. The dish didn’t disappoint as the portion was big, and it was really flavourful. I must say, it was a bit rich for my liking, but overall, the Portobello was cooked perfectly, and the accompanying salad was flavourful as well.
This nice, quiet restaurant is great for catching up with friends over a nice meal. The prices aren’t cheap but it’s well worth it given the quality of ingredients and size of serving.
