1/5 Buona Terra
It’s now winter in Italy, so executive chef Denis Lucchi has updated his menu to showcase the season’s best—black truffles and white truffles, included. Bring an appetite so you can indulge masterful dishes: the seared scallop with artichoke, radicchio and sea asparagus comes with an umami ‘bagna cauda’ (anchovy sauce), while the dover sole is accented with celery root, girolles mushrooms as well as a generous shaving of winter black truffles. The three-, four- or five-course winter menu is available until the end of January 2021. Book here.
2/5 Brewerkz at One Fullerton
At the newest outlet of this homegrown gastropub, you’ll be able to enjoy craft beers (there are 22 beer flavours on tap), elevated Asian and Western fare amidst the spectacular views of One Fullerton. Park yourself in the alfresco area and begin the meal with a glass of Golden Ale or Bohemian Pilsner that’s paired with executive chef Seow Tzi Qin’s delicious dishes—exclusive to this outlet.
Some of the highlights are the 3 Cheese Truffle Foccaccina, baked with spent grains (a by-product of beer production), and the Shogun Burger, created with a beef patty that’s a blend of Japanese OHMI A5 Wagyu, beef chuck, short ribs and top sirloin. Book here.
