Italian fine dining at Osteria Mozza just got a lot larger as they introduce large-format dishes to their menus. Best for sharing with a group of friends and family, dig into plates such as the Dry-Aged Porterhouse (from $130++) of 150-day grass-fed Black Angus beef from Queensland, Australia, and the Beef Cheek & Bone Marrow Pie ($65++) where thick portions of veal come encased in pastry for diners to slice open and reveal the juicy meat within. A series of 14 handmade pastas are also available for the necessary carbs, so if you’re in a mood for a feast, grab some folks and head over, stat.

Feast at Osteria Mozza, 2 Bayfront Avenue, B1-42-46 Galleria Level, The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore 018956, p. +65 6688 8522. Opens Mon-Fri 5pm – 11pm, Sat-Sun 12pm – 2.30pm, 5pm – 11pm.

Three Buns x Bird Bird Two-Sunday Special: The Bird Bun

The quest for the best burger place in Singapore is never-ending, but we’d say Three Buns at Potato Head Singapore in Keong Saik comes pretty close. Now, a two-week special created in collaboration with Chef Bjorn Shen of Bird Bird takes the dish to yet another level. The Bird Bun ($16) features Thai-fried Sakura chicken thigh, nam jin slaw and coconut mayo, encased in a toasted rice bun to soak up the goodness. This meeting of culinary minds will be available at Bird Bird on Sunday, 5 November 2017 from 3pm to closing, and at Potato Head Singapore on Sunday, 12 November 2017 from 12pm to 6pm.

Try the burger at Bird Bird, 97 Frankel Avenue, Singapore 458222, +65 6694 8270, on Sunday, 5 November 2017, 3pm – 11pm; and at Potato Head Singapore, 36 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089143, p. +65 6327 1939, on Sunday, 12 November 2017, 12pm – 6pm.

Pair them with Ginett’s special citrus-forward drinks like the Gin Fizz ($16++), the Grapefruit Sour ($16++) and the Orange Lemon mocktail ($10++).

When not downing frappes during her writing spiels, Megan can be found catching up on her favourite franchises or cajoling friends and family out for yet another Japanese dinner. An insane need to stay connected means you can reach her anytime – except on alternate weekends, when she’s found next to a TV screen, watching F1 cars go ‘round in circles.
