The Weekly Grub: 5 Things To Eat & Drink In Singapore This Week

This week, it’s time to get a little adventurous with cuisine takeovers, fusion dishes, and travel exclusive whiskies. If you’re more partial to the familiarity of home, order in with Deliveroo or head for some good old Peranakan fare.

Japanese Nights At Monti

See another side of Monti as the Italian restaurant wears a Japanese chef’s hat for one special week. Created in collaboration with Chita Suntory Whisky, the four-course menu will see Japanese twists on crowd favourites, with dishes like Oyster (Fine de Claire No.2, ikura, lemon vinaigrette, olive caviar) and Tagliolini (housemade squid ink tagliolini, squid ink sauce, Hokkaido sea urchin, mullet bottarga, shiso). Taste these exciting dishes alone for $120++ per person, or have them paired with whisky for $150++ per person.

Blue Lotus Chinese Noodle Bar

Pull up a stool at Blue Lotus’ bar counter and call for the chef- not a bartender, as you’ll be getting noodles, not Negronis, at this bar. Focusing on Northern Chinese cuisine and flavours, expect your usual Chinese fare to come with a new age twist, with dishes such as Grilled Giant King Prawn La Mian, Truffle Mushroom & Beansprout La Mian, and their signature, Crispy Pork Lard Truffle La Mian.

Order up at Blue Lotus Chinese Noodle Bar, Monday – Friday, 11am – 3pm (lunch), 5pm – 10pm (dinner), at Savourworld, 2 Science Park Drive, #01-26, Singapore 118222, p +65 6988 0880.
