Italian Pizzeria Cicheti Revamps Menu

With restaurants like Bar Cicheti and Caffe Cicheti under his belt, Chef Aun is well-known for delicious Italian food. Now, his O.G trattoria, Cicheti is launching a new menu this month, revamping traditional Italian fare. Dig into classic appetizers like the addictive Sea Prawns (MP), grilled with smoked herb butter and chilli. New offerings include Whole Wheat Stracci (S$28), hand-torn pasta with house-made ‘nduja, garlic, and scallions, and Zuppa de Pesce (S$46), a flavourful stew with the bounty of the sea. Finish off with a twist on dessert, gluten free Tiramisu (S$14) spiked with butterscotch and topped with an icy coffee granita.

Cicheti is located at 52 Kandahar Street, Singapore 198901. Open from Mon – Sun, 12pm – 2.30pm, 6pm – 10.30pm.

Marina Bay Sands Launches Gourmet Takeaway Platform

Now that we can dine in again, why not head to Marina Bay Sands for a treat? The iconic integrated resort is re-opening in batches, with five of its signature restaurants up and running. But if you rather avoid the crowd, Marina Bay Sands is also launching their very own Gourmet Takeaway platform on Saturday, 4 July 2020. Whether its classic British fare from Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay to juicy steaks by Wolfgang Puck’s CUT, there’s much to choose from. Get a milkshake from Black Tap or one of Yardbird’s desserts for a sinful treat.
