This week, we have excellent French breads and home-style dishes, a delicious buffet with Peranakan specialties, and a newly launched supper club event to share. So, here’s what to eat in Singapore:
Edge Launches Makan Makan
In commemoration of #SG50, the folks at Edge, Pan Pacific Singapore’s signature buffet restaurant with seven live food kitchens, have launched a Saturday lunch enhanced with new Peranakan dishes on the buffet line. Tuck into a bowl of steaming Homemade Laksa or Penang Prawn Noodle Soup before sampling the Babi Pongteh (stewed pork trotters in sweet vinegar and ginger) and a luxed-up lobster and prawn Ngo Hiang. And of course, there will be a pretty extensive selection of local treats to conclude your meal – think Ice Kachang, Durian Puff, Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts, and a variety of Nonya kueh.
Available every Saturday from 12 noon to 2.30pm, the lunch buffet is priced at $48++ per adult and $24++ per child (below 12 years), inclusive of free-flow local beverages, coffee, and tea.
New Savoury Items at Do.Main Bakery
Do.Main Bakery‘s Chef Frederic Deshayes has collaborated with Chef Stephane Istel of Bar-Roque Bar & Grill and Christophe Megel (founder of F&B consultancy A-munition) to create a new savoury menu. Innovated with the same classic French flair as the breads and pastries, the new menu features dishes such as the Tartiflette ($16), the ultimate French comfort food that combines potatoes with Reblochon cheese and bacon, and the flavourful Braised Beef Stew with Cheese Gratin ($16). When you head down, don’t miss out on the sweets like the Choux Cream Puff ($5) and the Salted Caramel Éclair ($5), my favourites of the lot!
Saint Pierre Launches Champagne Brunch
On the first Sunday of every month – starting 3 May 2015 – head down to Saint Pierre at Quayside Isle for an indulgent semi-buffet lunch. For $148++, you get free flow starters (think hickory smoke salmon, dashi poached prawns, and 36-month aged Parmesan cheese), Roasted Organic Beef with béarnaise, wild herb salad, and veal jus reduction for the main, a choice of dessert, and unlimited Duval Leroy champagne. If you wish to linger over the remnants of lunch and more bubbly, each bottle of Duval Leroy is going at a special rate of $68++ after 2.30pm. For those who’d rather not have champage, the brunch is priced at $88++.
(6/6/2016) Saint Pierre has relocated to 1 Fullerton Road, #02-02B One Fullerton, Singapore 049213.
‘After 10’ Supperclub Series at Mitzo
Park Hotel Orchard’s glitzy new restaurant and bar is introducing their monthly, themed supper club event starting this Thursday, 30 April 2015, 10.30pm-4am. Aptly themed ‘Wicked Spring Awakening‘ in celebration of the spring equinox, guests can expect to party into the wee hours accompanied by unlimited Cantonese morsels (like handcrafted dim sum, honey glazed bbq pork, and roasted pork belly) till 2.30am and live music till 4am.
Priced at $50++, the cover charge includes a glass of Veuve Clicquot rose champagne, and there’ll be $20nett Veuve Clicquot champagne, Magic Potion Shots at $10nett, and more than 30 types of wine at $15nett per glass.
