Made fresh in-house, the pasta is tossed in a seaweed better and Parmesan cheese before topping with freshly shaved black truffles. Absolutely comforting and indulging all at the same time with every bite giving you joy.

Exclusive to the Dining Room is a nine-course degustation menu and Chef ArChan has incorporated the beer brewing processing and even unique ingredients into the preparation of such dishes. Take for example the Squid Noodles, which is served with a clear consommé, a reminiscent of the beer’s clarification process, and further amplified with the lager-pickled enoki. Another entrée of the Kingfish Sashimi is also lager cured and served with cucumber and tapioca.

The base on the soup is made from a roasted tomato broth with flamed corn tortilla, avocado and Guajillo in it. For mains, there’s the vegetarian option, the Gordita ($28) that is made with a medley off heirloom vegetables and frijoles and the meaty El Mero Mero Fajita ($38), thick cuts of oyster blade beef in a Pobalno shishito crema served with flour tortillas. Last but not least, you have to get the Braised Pineapple ($14) to round off the meal as the pineapples have been caramelized in cane sugar and served with vanilla ice cream that will surely send you to dessert heaven.

To cater to the many dietary preferences, there is surely something for everyone if you are looking for fish or beef, or just have dietary preferences such as vegetarian. The top pick for me has got to be the Baja Fish Tacos ($14 for 2 tacos), as the tempura tooth fish is crispy on the outside while buttery flaky on the inside. This version comes wrapped with the flour tortilla and the fish fillet is joined by the Pico de Gallo, pickled shallots and chipotle mayo, giving it a complex flavour but yet super delicious. If you are looking for more indulgence, there’s the Wagyu Tacos ($15 for 2 tacos) that comes in a corn tortilla with Molcajete sauce and burnt onion petals. Last but not least, vegetarians can opt for the Avocado Tacos ($11 for 2 tacos) whereby a generous serving of freshly sliced and smashed avocado and smoked sea salt is layered onto a crispy corn tortilla.

From the small plates such as the Guacamole ($12/$18) and Corn Sampler ($15) to their appetizing Hamachi & Coconut Ceviche ($21) and Toastades de Atun ($17), you will get an instant taste of the Mexican hospitality and flavours from each bite.

Start off with the botanas (small plates) where you get to mix in the smashed avocados with diced tomatoes, onions, Serrano, coriander and lime mixture before give it a good spread on the charred tostadas. Next, the corn sampler is something that amazes me as someone who does not like those canned baby corns; these char-grilled baby corns had a bittersweet flavour while paired perfectly with the smoked Huitlacoche donuts and chilli mayo.

The ceviche and tostadas totally hit the spot as the Hamachi is tossed in a coconut milk that’s infused with the hibiscus flower, served with trout roe and avocado puree while the tostadas play a lot of the texture with the crispy of the crispy corn tortilla shell that contains tuna tartar, avocado puree, chipotle mayo and banana shallots.

These creations that are unique to the Hawaiian culture are sweet treats that you cannot find elsewhere and you have to try them. My two outstanding desserts have got to be the Lilikoi Crème Brulee and Hawaiian Vintage Chocolate Crunch Bar. The former is essentially a passionfruit crème brulee and the chefs managed to make it so masterfully that the inside is creamy texture while you get the tanginess of the passionfruit and sweetness of the sugar at the top. The balance of flavours truly wowed many of us during the media tasting. The latter of the chocolate crunch bar speaks volume as each bite brings the chocolate decadent that you will keep going for more.

Take out those Hawaiiwan shirts, grab a Tiki cocktail and be immersed in the Hawaiian heritage as Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore is bringing back the Hawaii Luau this year for dinner from 1 to 3 August and brunch on 4 August. Expect a buffet spread of Polynesian flavours and cultures at the Dutch Pavilion and Garden Terrace room as you feast on the luau banquet while enjoying the music by Hawaiian musician Jeff Peterson and vocalist Lea Almanza, with dance performances by Hālau Hula `O Nāpunaheleonāpua.

Start the meal with a KoHana Rum inspired cocktails before diving straight into the food. In terms of food-wise, there are lots to look forward to from the appetizer section of such as my picks of the Alaskan crab with Manila clams and Sunomono Salad and the Kalua Pig Caesar Salad in crispy cheese baskets served with Poi vinaigrette and anchovy dressing. For the main course that’s communal sharing, the ones that stood out include the Hawaiian salted crust baked salmon with black rice risotto and grilled lobsters before finishing it off with a delectable spread of desserts.

Prices for the dinner (1-3 August) are at $188++ per adult with two drink choices of cocktail or wine and for the brunch (4 August), it is at $148++ per adult with soft drinks and juices.

The pre dessert of Pina Colada is a work of art as you can see the intricacy and details that Chef puts into each plate. Served with the seasonal fruit of mango with coconut and a basil sorbet, it’s a great refreshing dessert after the entrees.

For the lunch degustation menu, you will get the Catch of the Day (pictured), which was a sea bream served with Brittany mussels and a crab & lobster soup. However, if you wish to pamper yourself further that day, there’s an $80++ top up for the Yonezawa A5 wagyu that comes with freshly shaved black truffles.

On Saturdays, the restaurant serves a 7 courses Dégustation lunch menu at $128 per pax, and you will start off with the appetisers of Hokkaido corn bisque with zuwai crab & egg, followed by the skipjack tuna with red shiso and a soup made with a quartet of mushrooms and truffle royale, finished with argan oil. Both the soups were fantastic; creamy and appetising with a balance of flavours. However, the sashimi dish was a bit too overpowering as each ingredients was competing head strong with one another for the limelight. Nonetheless, the start of the meal was an excellent one before the entrees.

The entrees, in my opinion, stole the show for the savoury item, especially the Catch of the Day which happens to be the sea bream that’s served with Brittany mussels and a crab & lobster soup that is poured into it. The harmony of flavours and the umami-ness of the broth is so addictive that one bowl is not enough.

Priced at $58++ per pax, it’s really value-for-money for a hotel buffet that has a decent range of local favourites to western selections.

What’s great about this dish is that its so family and kid-friendly as the wings have been deboned and all you need to do is to pick up the wing tip and start biting though the meat and pork. In terms of the taste, you will get the umami flavour of the prawn paste while complementing perfectly with the stuffed pork.

Other dishes that you can look forward to in the revamped menu includes the salted egg molten lava cheese tart ($10), stuffed scallops with prawns that’s served with broccoli, cooked in a crabmeat sauce and topped with fish roe ($24) and finally the crispy Pu-er tea smoked chicken ($20) that’s so aromatic and the aroma hits you instantly as this dish is being served to the table. The best end to a meal is always dessert and what better than the Pandan-infused black glutinous rice with mango ($6).
