Where To Eat This Week: April 23-29
Midday feasts are a welcome treat at this restaurant-bar, especially now that executive chef Daniele Sperindio has introduced eight new Greek-inspired dishes to the executive lunch menu. Fall in love with the seafood dolmathakia, which is rice and amberjack fish rolled in vine leaf, as well as expertly charred octopus tentacles enhanced with feta goat cheese and fig sauce.
And with such an extensive range of gins and wines to choose from, it would be wrong not to indulge in a tipple or two. Let head sommelier Mason Ng curate the pairings for you.
2/6 25 Degrees
The Bae Watch burger combines our love for steak and seafood into one neat package. It’s a huge and juicy Angus beef that's lathered with crabmeat sriracha aioli and layered with caramelised onions, calamari and tobiko lemon dill sauce.
It’s even better when you pair this with an equally indulgent milkshake, which comes in vanilla, chocolate and strawberry flavours.

6/6 The Song of India
The only Michelin-starred Indian restaurant in Singapore turns 13 this year, and it's celebrating with a buffet extravaganza on April 29.

Head chef Ivan Yeo of The Brewing Co. will whip up a Northern Thailand smoked lamb Khao Suey curry.
