Alt pizza is a favourite hangover food choice amongst my friends, and it’s easy to see why. Great crust, coupled with very moreish toppings make every bite extremely satisfying. Pie of choice for me would be the Beefy Affair – moist chopped Australian beef meatballs and squidgy roasted mushrooms heaped onto a layer of stringy mozarella and cheddar cheese over a base of vine-ripened tomato sauce. The sharpness of parmesan and subtle pungency of black pepper really lifts the other flavours.

I found my pork tough and gristly, but the mains play second fiddle to the generous larder laid upon the Ploughmans Table for Level33’s Executive Set Lunch. Feast upon a free flow of good cheeses, whole prawns, mussels, charcuterie and Level33’s amazing bread with creamy yeast beer butter, amongst other things. And definitely don’t miss out on their shockingly good nduja paste –
best eaten slathered on aforementioned bread.

Cuba Libre has come a long way since their first bar at Clarke Quay all those years ago. The latest outlet at spanking new Frasers Tower has a Cuban executive chef whipping up authentic bites such as these sauteed shrimp skewers in a zingy lemon and chilli sauce that we mopped clean with bread.

Introducing rice and salad bowls is a smart way to entice the health conscious CBD lunch crowd at the newly opened Cuba Libre in Frasers Tower. The Latino inspired flavours are fresh yet punchy, with ingredients such as a moerish Arroz Moro(black beans and rice), crisp plantain chips and guacamole. In particular, I liked the Cuban Bowl with a well-seasoned roast chicken quarter, as well as the savoury fish Escabeche smartly paired with tart pickled onions, roast capsicum and corn chips in the Peruvian Bowl. The vegetarian options are substantial too, with the Verduras bowl laden with avocados, chickpeas, pilaf rice and butternut squash.

Cuba [email protected] Tower has some intriguing Latino inflected rice and salad bowls on offer. The Cuban bowl allows you a choice of 2 proteins - chicken or pork - and I have to say my preference is for the chicken. Their Cuban chef Alex brings a taste of his home to this rice bowl, featuring a well-seasoned and tender roast chicken quarter, Arroz Moro – a traditional Cuban side dish of black beans and rice – and plantain chips. Clean eating yet still tasty.

This is an authentic taste of European home cooking – from the rustic-style mashed potatoes to the cut and flavour of the sauerkraut, and of course it goes without saying, the huge chunks of tender pork, gelatinous fat and salty, crunchy crackling. Make sure to ask for mustard and mayo to swathe your meaty delights in.

A satisfactory if nondescript cheese burger. If you only have space for one thing, get the pork knuckles instead. We rather enjoyed the fries though.

In my excitement at seeing herring on the menu of a restaurant in Singapore, I overlooked the fact that it was salted and not pickled, herring. The in-your-face fishiness and saltiness is definitely an acquired taste.

Tasting exactly like the patty in a Zinger burger, these crunchy wings and drumettes are the ideal accompaniment to Beerfest Brewery’s range of refreshing craft beers. I couldn’t stop at just one.

Your choice of grilled or salt-baked trout and we went with the latter. The benefits of salt baking are twofold – it simultaneously seasons the meat as well as seals in the juices whilst the fish cooks, ensuring moist, flaky flesh that’s brimming with flavour. Sometimes simple is best.

Quite looked forward to this as I love ceviche. There were generous slices of red snapper and the chilli coconut milk packed a spicy kick, but the absence of any discernible citrus whatsoever and overt sweetness of the papaya did not work for me.

What do you know about dumplings? Next level wanton game with moreish pulled pork and cream cheese encased in crunchy, deep-fried wrappers, served with a tangy sweet and sour dip. This, coming up soon at the future [email protected] Glutton’s Bay.
