It starts with a aromatic mixture of sautéed onion carrots and bell peppers being mixed with squid and squid ink. Its reduced and moulded into round shapes before being frozen. The frozen rings are subsequently deep fried to golden brown leading to a intense unmade flavours with unbelievable melt-in-the-mouth texture. While it gets a bit rich and jelak after a while, this remains a must order for me, especially if you’re sharing.

Ron Zacapa 23 Rum, Lagavulin 16 Single Malt,
Amaretto, Cherry Syrup, Black Walnut Bitters.
A delicious mix of rum, whiskey, amaretto & black walnut bitters finished iff with smoke in a flask.
_
Complex tasting because of the smokiness and the tinge of bitter
But still palatable as it is sweet.
Sweetness always plays well with smoky and bitter.
The smoky flavours of the Lagavulin was further enhanced with the smoking in the flask.

Chimichangas are deep-fried burritos. That should seal the deal. Don't be fooled by the liberal salsa verde and crema though, they didn't add much. The main problem is the slightly small size.

Conceptualised by new head bartender Jorge Conde, the menu showcases various playful libations which often riff off classic cocktails and emphasize experience over visuals (the latter being quite the focal point in previous iterations of the menu).

While the agave-led "Smoke & Mirrors #4" updates the bar's signature cocktail, "Robbery At The Museum" reimagines the Singapore Sling as a foamy minx who's more pineapple tart than cherry sweet, and the "Le Paix 75" is a luxuriously botanical take on the classic Martini.

Fail. When the centrepiece tastes like it's fried with old oil, giving that off-putting sensation, it can't recover. The sriracha mayo barely helped.

This new establishment along Amoy Street opened by the Loco group brings you fast casual Mexican food that’s similar to their sister establishment, Super Loco.

The star is definitely their chicken. The birds are organically fed, antibiotics & hormone free and free range. Each bird is brined for 10 hours, in a secret blend that’s got a splash of agave nectar, then basted with herbs and spices like dried oregano, mustard powder, and achiote, and cooked over flames for an hour. What you get, is wonderfully tender and flavorful meat! Pair it with any of their sauces (extra charges apply for each sauce). Their habenero & mango sauce is recommended and gives a nice citrusy lift. Order their street corn too!

Price: from $9 for a quarter
👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Finally tried Antidote’s beautiful high tea set (~$50+ per pax) of sweets and savouries served in a chest of drawers together with an appetiser and a choice of TWG teas. ☕️
.
Had the 65 degree egg with truffle as the appetiser and the saltiness of the potato purée went well with the creaminess of the flowy egg yolk.
.
Savouries: personally liked the five spiced duck rilette with blueberry cream as I felt the textures really worked well as a whole | tobiko mayo with caviar on brioche bun had slightly too much mayo for me.
.
Sweets: Fav was probably the Apple tartin with almond frangipane on a millefeuille tart since it didn’t taste overly sweet unlike some others ( caramel fudge and passionfruit cone)
.
SCONES:!!! wow!!!! slightly moist and oh-so-crumbly, the spreads for the scones- lemon curd, clotted cream and raspberry jam done verY well, and I enjoyed having an original scone and an orange one !! MaJOR LUVS
.
Ended off with a matcha and earl grey cookie, with strong matcha and earl grey aftertaste- suPAAA enjoyable hehehe

My drink of choice - The Go(o)dfather ($24+). I didn't order this for the aesthetic, but it is pretty cute - look at the conical flask with a cork popped on top to keep the smoke in!

& smokey it is - one whiff & you can tell. Not just because of the peatiness of the Lagavulin 16 Single Malt 😍 A great tribute to its inspiration, The Godfather, it stays true to its roots with Amaretto, but also the excellent addition of Ron Zacapa 23 Rum.

With cherry syrup & an actual cherry inside, if you're not a fan of cherry flavours, you should obviously skip this. If you're not a fan of bitter drinks (this one has black walnut bitters, of which the taste is rather distinctive), you should also skip this.

But if you're like me & The Godfather is one of your favourite classics, & also holds a special meaning for you, then go for it, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks Jekyll & Hyde for the hospitality, & Burpple for the invite! 💕

Most of their new signature cocktails menu are self-explanatory, but Beauty in a Cup ($22+, foreground) required some explanation by friendly bartender, Mike. "An Ode to Chrysanthemum Tea", it says - the drink really does do this statement justice, alluding to the Chrysanthemum-infused gin. It is hella tasty & really reminiscent of Chrysanthemum tea.

What needed explanation was the "secret beauty syrup" - a concoction of lotus seeds, wolfberries, & snow fungus reduced to a gelatinous consistency. I hope I got that right 😂

This is a great cocktail that is fragrant but not sweet. I'm loving it 😍 I don't need beauty sleep after drinking this, I can sleep when I'm dead.

In the background: Spice My Monkey Up ($22+) is one of their more popular drinks, inspired by one of my favourites, the Whiskey Sour. Monkey Shoulder Blended Scotch, lemon & honey syrup. Topped off with a ginger foam that adds a nice spicyness to the drink.

There are options for those who wish to have something lighter & refreshing on the palate - Lady in Red ($20+) uses a base of raspberry-infused vodka with lychee liqueur; the sweetness of which, together with the rose syrup, is balanced with lemon juice. This goes down pretty easy, especially for those who love fruity & sweet drinks - so be careful.

Comes with a psychedelic "ice cube" that changes colours every second - fairly difficult to photograph 🤯

What swept me off my feet was the Kopi-O Fashioned ($22+). Coffee-infused scotch - sounds intriguing, tastes amazing.

This drink also has maple syrup for a very slight hint of sweetness (think "kopi siu siu dai"), & cardamom bitters. Topped off with stout-reduced foam for that added ooh & aah.

Totally agreeing with Amanda that we could drink this every morning 😛 One of my favourites of the night 👍🏻
