1/5 Tablescape Restaurant & Bar
A different kind of CNY celebration that brings together the east and west calls for a trip to Tablescape.

For a taste of Italy, you’ve got the likes of Lobster, a one-off pasta dish comprising al dente linguini coated with an umami-packed lobster ragu, as well as a juicy roast pork belly imbued with the flavours of garlic and rosemary. Heading back to Asia, you’ll enjoy dishes such as Hong Kong kai lan sautéed with garlic, soy sauce and XO sauce. Available until February 26. Book here.
