“I’m not fussy – I just have a discerning palate …” so she says.
One’s only “eating clean”, another is suddenly “sensitive to gluten”, so where should you girls go for your next catch-up session? We have some pretty good ideas.
1. Pyxiemoss at 43 North Canal Road (Tel: 6532 2171)
Think “Sunday roasts” and most people would think, “Meat-heavy”. Well, not at Pyxiemoss. Taking inspiration from the classic Sunday roasts he grew up eating, Chef Tim Ross-Watson presents his own rendition, paying homage to his British-Indian roots.
Held every second Sunday of the month (the next is coming up 12 February), Chef Tim’s Sunday Roast features an imaginative use of ingredients, especially vegetables. A celiac himself, Tim made sure the menu features delicious vegetarian options. The Cauliflower is an entire cauliflower sous-vide in a special spice blend then roasted in a tandoor oven. The finished dish is covered in house-made Hollandaise and showered in battered corn. It’s so good, you’d be tempted to skip the meat offerings altogether.
2. Ola Beach Club at 46 Siloso Beach Walk, Sentosa (Tel: 6250 6978)
Singapore’s only all-encompassing Hawaiian-themed lifestyle club brings you not just a gamut of exciting watersports but also yummy Hawaiian-inspired eats! Led by Chef Liinson Heng, the menu at Ola uses a host of premium produce and seafood for healthy, satisfying dishes such as Ahi Poke Bowl (pictured above) and Saimin Salad, a cold Japanese somen tossed with fried fishcake and spam in a soy-based sauce.
But if you are looking for something with more oomph, go for the Loco Moco, a rice burger layered with Wagyu beef patty and panko-crusted egg. Be sure to burn off those calories with a spot of kayaking or stand-up paddling.
3. Open Farm Community at 130E Minden Road
If your friends are “big on local” (because this IS all the trend right now), you girls will love the offerings at Open Farm Community. Using local produce to create amazing dishes, the menu offers creative, yummy dishes like Tempura Jurong Frog Legs and Local Quail Breast & Crispy Confit Leg. Our favourite, however, has to be the OFC Fish Burger. A thick, firm red grouper patty is sandwiched in squid ink buns with pickled OFC cucumber and house-made chunky tartar sauce. The resulting dish is satisfying, appetising, and absolutely more-ish.
So, where will you girls be heading?
