NEW Pasta Tasting Menu If you want to carb out in preposterous style, the new Pasta Tasting Menu at Spago has your name on it. It certainly had Burppler Jayne Tan and mine. Comprising of smaller portions of the four existing pastas from the a la carte menu, it is an ideal way to try them all at one sitting. Frankly speaking, I have only had the agnolotti (it’s pure magic, just ask everyone else I’ve introduced it to) and wasn’t quite aware of the other three pastas’ existence. Blame it on my usual must-haves that get first dibs on my belly’s real estate whenever I visit 😂😂 So thank you Executive Chef Greg Bess for insisting we leave it to you this time. The first to arrive was a pile of exquisite frilly Mafaldine prepared in a far-from-basic cacio e pepe style with prosciutto and asparagus. The former added meaty savouriness while the latter threw in not only in extra flavour but also succulent bites of juiciness. Second was a really appetising Rigatoni. The sauce of pork ragu, fennel seeds, Swiss chard, parmesan, parsley had a subtle kick of heat from chilli which paired beautifully with the big tubes of al dente #pasta. I am a fan of tripe but only if it is done well, and in the case of the Bucatini “Trippa ala Romana“, our third pasta, it hit the bullseye. Superbly soft and gently chewy, the pieces of tripe were saturated in the spicy tomato sauce it had been braised in. Ricotta, mint, parsley and pecorino rounded this off very nicely. Last but certainly not least was the handmade Agnolotti that had stolen my heart from day one. This season sees it filled with pumpkin with a hint of herbs, and served with a plate-lickably delicious sauce, as evidenced in my recent IGTV post starring @heyrozzz @dineshb and @iamkennethelee. We were feeling rotund by then and common sense would dictate refusing dessert. But did we do that? Of course not. A very fragrant deconstructed Apple Crumble landed on our table soon after and in we dug, munching on the freshly baked fruit and crunchy pecan streusel, accompanied by raspberry gel and a magnificent brown butter pecan ice-cream.

NEW Tacos On The Menu At Spago Bar & Lounge Making an appearance for the first time today at Spago Bar & Lounge on the 57th floor of Marina Bay Sands is this Wagyu Tongue Tacos. And what an interesting Mexican-Indian hybrid it is. Inspired by staff meals cooked by the Indian members of their international kitchen team, this features made-from-scratch tortillas and very tender cubes of Wagyu tongue cooked in masala spices, and then smoked with cloves and ghee. Fresh avocado, airy-light, crunchy pork crackling puffs and a side of creamy raita (yes, you read right, it’s the team’s take on the Indian yogurt with chopped onions and cucumber) amp things up further, elevating this exotic and very tasty taco to greater textural heights. We were besotted from first bite!

Taking Steak To Another Level. When an ordinary #steak is too ho-hum, there’s always this funkier option at #spagosingapore. Aged in bourbon whisky for 60 days, the Snake River Farm #AmericanWagyu was presented to us by Executive Chef @gregabess at the beginning of our dinner, looking utterly resplendent and paparazzi-worthy in its wooden box. After being grilled to a perfect medium-rare, it was transformed into a gorgeous thing all pink and juicy on the inside. The flavour was intense and complex with a subtle sweetness. And it seemed to get tastier the more I chewed on it. This is a steak you’ll want to take your time to savour. Due to its time-consuming preparation process, this piece of beef is only available about once a month. However, of late, it has been included as one of the courses in the Tasting Menu (we each paid $195++ for ours that night). If you are keen to try, please double check on its availability when you make a reservation.

Italia and Marinara Half-Half Pizza They have half-half options for the large 12-inch pizzas yay! 🍕 I think you just have to pay for the higher-priced ones, but both these pizzas were $23.50. The marinara is a simple seafood pizza with mussels, prawns and squid (olives too, but I asked them to take those out cause I hate olives). The Italia has mozzarella cheese, parma ham and mushrooms. According to the waiter, they make and knead the dough from scratch here, and it was served piping hot. I just wish they were a tad more generous with cheese and marinara sauce, and that the dough was a bit more less bread-like and slightly more crusty, but otherwise, it was really good. 7.5/10

Wholemeal Carbonara ($20.90++) Hearty Italian pasta @pastafrescadasalvatore served right beside the relaxing ambience of Boat Quay! So much variety with 18 different pastas and 23 different mouthwatering sauces to choose from. I had a hard time choosing - ended up with the carbonara with homemade wholemeal tagliatelle. Love this restaurant especially for their service and view😌

Ravioli di Burrata e Tartufo Nero This is homemade ravioli stuffed with burrata cheese (a super mild tasting buffalo cheese which I am absolutely adoring at the moment) and black truffle, bathed in a porcini mushroom cream sauce and topped with crispy parma ham and caviar. ($29.90) I really like the fact that the sauce is on the light side and neither the truffle or the creaminess is too heavy or overpowering. It's just very well balanced, with the parma adding a crispy crunch and the caviar adding a touch of umami and saltiness. Spam the parmesan cheese they provide on the side if you like an additional cheesy kick. Food aside, the best thing this place has is the amazeballs view and ambience. Plonked by the riverside with a lovely cool breeze and the lights reflecting off the surface of the river, the whole place just encapsulates romance. 7.5/10

Since we cannot be enjoying the Bali life now, we let the Bali life come to us instead. Fortunately, there is such a place in Singapore for fresh draft, good food and most importantly, damn good music with all the 80s and 90s rock and ballads playing in the background. Despite it being in an ulu location, this is actually a perfect setting for a mini adventure out from the high-rise buildings and shopping malls. You can either sit inside the restaurant or outside alfresco style, which I highly recommend as it was breezy on that night. As the name suggests, this is literally a little island on its own as you can order food such as pizza, burgers that are freshly prepared upon order and what’s their unique selling point is that they brew their own draught from the large tanks inside the restaurant. You get for yourself a pre-paid card from the counter, head over to the various taps and get your own beer, at a cost that’s relative to the type of draught and flavours. In that instance, you can try out a single bit from everything so long your card has sufficient funds in it to go through the various taps. I was surprised to see that there are even cocktails, ranging from $5 per 100ml, to non-alcoholic options such as spritzers and kombucha, all available from taps that you take by yourself. The food that we got, goes perfectly with an IPA, with deep fried goodness such as fish and chips, or freshly out of the oven Hawaiian pizza and cheese nachos. •••••••••••••••••••• 📍Little Island Brewing Co 6 Changi Village Road, Unit 01-01/02, Singapore 509907

Amuse Bouche (one per person) The best thing about this place is the location and the view. Maybe it’s not fair to judge a restaurant just by referring to the Valentine’s Day set menu ($178++ for non-front row tables) and dining experience, but based on that, it doesn’t rank among the top 15 Italians in Singapore. Portions are Lilliputian, none of the dishes is a wow, and the dessert is too dry. The menu said “lobster risotto”, but it’s really crayfish!!?! I remained hungry and was tempted by the idea of buying French fries at OverEasy downstairs. Service is not terribly proactive - one must ask for water refills several times during the meal. After opening the wine, the waiter asked “would you like to test, or should I just pour?” In a restaurant of this calibre, you don’t ask this kind of question - more training is called for! Cheaper restaurants would present a flower to lady guests, but not here! Forlino is a case of marble pricing but linoleum food and service. Chef Osvaldo Forlino’s No Menu restaurant is not great, but better than Forlino! Shame!

When you step inside Vue, you’ll probably go Wow! And when you look outside, you’ll go Wowwwwww. It is stunning! And now that Vue is open for lunch, you can get a daytime version of Wow! It’s as impressive, just with sunlight. Vue’s 3-course set menu would be the perfect excuse to head up OUE Bayfront. From $68 a person, you’ll get a variety of choices (some items you’ll have to pay a top up for, because beauty doesn’t come cheap). My pick from the set is the Norwegian Red King Crab toast. It’s a visual treat that tastes just as good. The main of grilled Fremantle octopus is good too, as well as the Red Hill House veal shank. Be sure to order the French Toast for dessert too. That’s worth the calories too.

NEWLY LAUNCHED: Executive Set Lunch (3-course: $68++) My choice of main course was what’s possibly the tastiest cooked salmon I‘ve eaten in recent memory. It starred the sustainable, high-end farmed Ōra King Salmon from New Zealand, known as the “Wagyu of the Sea” because of its markings which resembles the fat-laced beef. Head Chef Sam prepared it flawlessly, delivering an unbelievably moist flesh under perfectly crisped skin. And served the big slab of fish with a creamy morel mushroom and clams sauce that was downright magnificent. Highly recommended!

The Norwegian Red King Crab Toast Appetiser Is Huge And Very Good! I met a friend for lunch on Monday this week and coincidentally, it was @vuesingapore’s Executive Set Lunch ($68++ for the 3-course menu) official launch. Having been awestruck by the spectacular views from the restaurant during my evening visits, I was curious to see what it would be like in bright daylight. The sky was hazy that afternoon unfortunately but I am sure it would be stunning otherwise. We decided to share the food in order to try more things, and it started with the appetisers, both of which were surprisingly massive in portion. I must admit, as much as I enjoyed my Grilled Argentinean Red Shrimp Salad in saffron vinegar dressing, it was his Norwegian Red King Crab Toast (shown above) that hit a home run. Recommended by General Manager Ben, we both found the open-faced sandwiches superb as the plentiful chilled crab meat was fresh and sweet, and came tossed in an ideal amount of yuzu mayo with finely-cut avocado, cucumber and shallots. It was worth the $8++ top-up for sure.
