As May draws to a close, we take a look at some of the new eats that have just launched and have impressed us.
1. Steamroom with The Pillar and Stones (SPRS)
An artistic concept nestled in Orchard Central, SPRS fuses art, fine dining, and retail into a relaxed setting.
At The Pillar, taste an elegant twist to the classic Peruvian dish. The Japanese Hamachi Ceviche is made up of Japanese yellowtail cured with citrus juices served with puffed tapioca, pea shoots, and picked radish. Lightly drizzled with parsley oil, this appetiser is light on the flavour, leaving you wanting more.
In the Steamroom, sip brews at their optimum taste. Also, not forgetting the Stones, where you can appreciate artworks by aspiring artists.
Headed by Chef Takashi, this is one of the few places in Singapore that you can get Italian pizza made in authentic pizza ovens.
If you have never been much of a fan of pizza, yet curious to taste authentic pizza in Singapore, opt for the Margherita woodfire pizza.
This no-fills pizza is made up of mainly dough, tomato paste, basil, and cheese. As it is served, notice the blisters on the crust— a tell-tale sign that the pizza was made in a pizza oven. Additionally, as you sink your teeth into a slice, note the smoky aroma that is not present in pizzas made in regular ovens.
Audace, short for “audacity”, is an invitation to explore tastes and discover flavors that push boundaries. Helmed by Michelin star-awarded chef Jeremy Gillon, this bar/restaurant aims to serve sensational French bistro fare with a modern twist.
If you ask me, a dish that best represents this place is the cucumber ice cream basil. Served with Brittany sable, strawberry fruit bell pepper, and passion jus, this dessert is a mix of flavors that is unique and refreshing.
From experience, I found out that the best way to enjoy this dessert? Have a little bit of everything with the ice cream!
Located along Robertson Quay, this haunt is the perfect spot to unwind after a long day. Bask in the casual Mediterranean beach-vibe environment, as the staff serve dishes with fresh ingredients and new flavours.
Enhance your beach experience with their selection of seafood. Their oysters are a favourite, and they are going for $6 a piece, no minimum order required.
Meaning “nest” in Japanese, this themed patisserie café revolves around the concept of nests and the use of eggs. Offering Japanese- French inspired creations, the desserts are light in texture and are not too heavy on the stomach.
For you first visit, I recommend trying their Yuzu Raspberry Cake. With a pillowy and fluffy texture, this Japanese sponge cake combines the sweetness of fresh raspberry slices with yuzu to form the perfect afternoon treat.
These are the places that we have discovered this month. If we have missed anything out, do let us know in the comments below!
