This week, the world of guilt-free eating just got bigger and brighter. Carbon-neutral beef is coming to Singapore, and our very first fully-keto bakery just popped up on Seah Street. Of course, we’ve also got oodles of sinfully good nosh − a hearty English fry-up for your lazy weekend brunch, experimental cocktails from IB HQ, and some indulgent bar bites at LAVO.
Explore Asian Flavours at IB HQ – Bartender’s Table
Shake up your happy hour with IB HQ‘s new cocktail tasting program. The Kampong Glam hotspot is known for its bold play with Asian ingredients (some of their mad mixologist’s creations involve curry gin, jackfruit bitters, even pandan whisky), and Bartender’s Table promises more of the same. Every four months, the Bartender’s Table will showcase five unique cocktails exploring a single ingredient or theme. The first run kicks off with a foray into Japanese tea culture − think tea-based tipples made with genmaicha, sencha, matcha, and more. Choose between the three- or five-cocktail tasting menus (S$58++ and S$88 respectively), or opt for the omakase menu and let the bartenders swirl you on an adventure.
Bartender’s Table by IB HQ is available from Tuesdays to Saturdays at 774A North Bridge Rd, Singapore 198742, p. +65 9152 4550.

Feast Guilt-Free On Australia’s First Carbon-Neutral Beef
We love our beef, but it comes with a hefty carbon footprint. Did you know raising cattle produces up to 20 times more greenhouse emissions than growing crops? But if you’re loath to give up your steak, there’s hope − Australia’s first carbon-neutral beef, Five Founders Natural Australian Beef. From paddock to plate, Five Founders has taken pains to offset all carbon emissions from beef production, through initiatives such as forest-friendly grazing and testing of legume-based pastures. No hormones are added, and no part of the beef is wasted. Thanks to Singapore distributor Alternative Selection, this eco-friendly beef is now available on Redmart, Ryan’s Grocery, and at various restaurants! Snag a cut from Redmart between 3 to 30 September 2019, and enjoy 15% off on selected Five Founders beef products.
Five Founders Natural Australian Beef is available for purchase on Redmart and at Ryan’s Grocery. It is also served in restaurants across Singapore including Kitchen by Food Rebel, Outback Steakhouse, and The Market Grill.
