5 Must-Try Dishes at the Epicurean Market
The fourth edition of Marina Bay Sands’ Epicurean Market is back from today until Sunday, and it’s definitely bigger and better than before. There are more restaurants participating, which only means a lot more dishes to savour. If you don’t mind queuing, here are the ones you should go for:
Lewellyn’s Fried Chicken
Yardbird Southern Table & Bar
Opening next year at the Marina Bay Sands, Yardbird Southern Table & Bar gives us a peek of what you can expect from its upcoming outlet. It’s all about hearty and classic fare Southern fare like this signature fried chicken, marinated for 27 hours and fried to crisp perfection. It comes with addictive waffle and bourbon honey. It’s oh-so-good.
Jhinga Avocado Raj Chaat
One of the guest restaurants this year is Michelin-starred Indian restaurant from Macau, Golden Peacock. The menu is quite limited with only three signatures, but each one is so memorable. One dish that piques the palate is the jhinga avocado raj chaat, made with fresh avocados and onions. It’s topped with meaty shrimp, and for visual appeal, summer greens and flowers.
db Bistro & Oyster Bar
If you can’t get enough lobster roll, try out db Bistro & Oyster Bar’s own take on this famous dish. It’s packed with fresh lobster meat, celery and tomatoes and avocado sandwiched between homemade and buttery brioche bun. It’s so delicious that one bun may not be ebough.
Big Eye Tuna Tartare Cones

Who can resist these mini cones from chef Wolfgang Puck’s Spago? It’s always been a signature since day one, and it’s not hard to understand why. These crispy mini cones with sesame seeds are packed with tuna flakes spiced with chilli aioli and ginger.
Marinated Botan Shrimp with Sea Urchin & Oscietra Caviar

The mere mention of the name Waku Ghin, and we immediately think of the appetising (not to mention, totally instagrammable) marinated botan shrimp with sea urchin and oscietra caviar. Good news, you can also savour it at the event. Though it’s not served in the spiky sea urchin body, you still get the same rich uni and decadent caviar in every bite.
