There’s nothing we love more than Singapore’s ever-changing foodscape, and this week’s line up is the perfect exemplification. New menus and dishes are aplenty this week, including Strangers’ Reunion‘s brunch offerings at Outram and Uni Tsukemen at Boat Quay‘s Menya Sakura, as well as wine and burgers at Ginett and Wolfgang Steakhouse. And if you’re looking to get through the painful wait before the Season eight in April, you may be interested in the new Game of Thrones Single Malt Scotch Whisky Collection.

Available till 31 March 2019, the three-course menu starts at $55++. Pair it with Justine’s wine curation at $80++.

Uni Tsukemen at Menya Sakura
Speaking of carbohydrates, they are sometimes near impossible to avoid, especially when they taste as good as Menya Sakura’s dipping-style tsukemen. Head Chef Sho Naganuma dives into a new flavour this month — uni (sea urchin) fresh from the sea. From 9 March onwards, try out their all-new Uni Tsukemen ($16.90), for a salty umami-packed broth alternative to dip their signature thick noodles in. And even if uni isn’t to your liking, don’t forget their classic intense pork broth in Tonkutsu Tsukemen ($12.90). For a lighter option, get the Chuka Soba ($10.90), and finish the meal with a high-ball or two.

Game of Thrones Whisky in Singapore
If you say you’ve never imagined yourself gazing out your bedroom window sipping away at a glass of wine with the same look of scathing superiority as Cersei Lannister, I wouldn’t believe you. But now your fantasies can become (almost) reality, with limited-edition Single Malt Scotch Whiskies borne out of a collaboration between HBO and spirit maker Diageo, taking inspiration from the Seven Kingdoms and their inhabitants. Show off your support for the Starks with Game of Thrones House Stark – a honey-sweet Dalwhinnie Winter’s Frost (70cl, ABV 43%), or bend the knee to Game of Thrones House Targaryen – a Cardhu Gold Reserve (70cl, ABV 40%). Each bottle comes labelled with beautiful crests from each house, and true diehards should get the entire set of eight for $1188.
