Wondering where to eat in Singapore? Every month we bring you the scoop on what’s hot and buzzing across town – from the latest brunch spot to new menus at old favourites, as well as new restaurants and bars.
A British Affair
Tuck into an exciting menu of British classics and more at the seasonal Casual British by Kirk Westaway popup at modern cocktail bar Antidote. Start with the Farmhouse Duck & Lentil Terrine ($15): luxurious confit duck leg with hearty green lentils and date purée. Moving onto mains, Chef Kirk’s Berkshire Pork Belly ($35) shines a spotlight on Dingley Dell Pork from the East Coast of Suffolk, England. Brined and slowly braised for 24 hours, the pork belly is served with creamy potato mash, red onion marmalade, and a punchy green peppercorn sauce – delish! Another must-try is the newly added Kirk’s Fish n’ Chips ($35), made with prime cod fillet in London Pride ale batter and served with chips.
For something sweet and very classic, the Casual Bread & Butter Pudding ($14) will not disappoint. It features buttered soft bread that’s soaked in sweet eggwash overnight, and then baked to perfection. Level 1, Fairmont Singapore. 6431 6156 | fairmont.com/singapore/dining/antidote
If you’re hosting a small party at home, check out Island Kitchen Collective. The latest “cloud kitchen” concept offers a well-curated food menu of close to 80 Mediterranean and Japanese dishes that can be delivered; that means you can get your sushi fix along with a sumptuous spread of seafood grilled to perfection. We recommend the Best of Both Worlds combo for four (from $165), which features a mix of signatures from both cuisines. You get to customise the combo by selecting your dishes from each section (grain bowls, pastas, small plates and more). That means you can cover as wide a range as you like, instead of getting a repeat of flavours. It also means picky eaters won’t be stuck with something they won’t eat! islandkitchencollective.sg
