Equally if not more notable is Restaurant Andre by Singapore’s most feted chef, Andre Chiang. Restaurant Andre landed the fifth spot on San Pellegrino Asia 50 Best list in 2013 and was listed by New York Times as one of ten restaurants in the world that are worth a plane ride in 2011. Chiang’s 8-course Mediterranean-inspired French menu (S$298++), termed Octaphilosophy, is an expressions of his culinary inspirations interpreted as “pure”, “salt”, “artisan”, “South”, “texture”, “unique”, “memory” and “terroir” on the menu. While the dishes change seasonally, you can almost always expect to see the memory dish of foie gras jelly with black truffle coulis. Gear yourselves up for an epic meal: other than 8 mains, Chiang also serves up a parade of amuse bouche and numerous courses of sweets including an updated rendition of his now-famous Snicker bar dessert conceived during his 2-year stint with Jaan.
