This is the time of the year when we share a good meal, “sacrifice” some angry birds, and try in vain not to over-stuff ourselves. As we unwrapped the final present, let’s take a moment to sit back and remember to thank your mom/dad/colleague for the turkey.
And what a way to end a year of gluttony with a look at my Top 3 most memorable eats of this year.
3. CUTS by Wolfgang Puck (Marina Bay Sands)
Fantastic ambience, oak-wood fired grill and choice meat. NY Steakhouse this is not. Puck is the official caterer for Oscars nights, so expect a flare in food presentation. This fine example is a 2-kg Bone-in Waygu that was carved by your table and presented in the shape of the 3 towers of MBS complete with the Sky Park.
Tapas, Paella, Cochinillo – the Holy Trinity of Spanish cuisine. So much for the Tapas, they are very pricey here. No amount of Sangria hid the fact. Paellas are so-so, but the saving grace is the Cochinillo. Roast Suckling Pig so crispy you cut with a plate. And as the final gusto after cutting the pig, you get to vent your pent-up frustrations built over the year by breaking the plate. Of course the pig is tasty. Read the full post here.
1. Sky@57 (Marina Bay Sands)
Chef Justin Quek’s fine dining adventure on the SkyPark features Asian food presented in the Haute Cuisine style. But nothing hides the fact that this is still an overpriced Hokkien Mee, even though it has lobster (3 pieces) and is one of the best I ever had. No joke, much better than the one at Chomp Chomp or Geylang. Another must-try there is the truffle-infused XiaoLongBao. And the view is to die-for, so go with your love ones.
And my Christmas wish? More good food next year.
