Enjoy Reimagined British Favourites at JAAN

Classic British fare gets a modern makeover in JAAN by Kirk Westaway’s new summer menu. With Fish and Chips, Chef Kirk reinterprets this beloved staple as a crisp tartlet filled with cod fish brandade and served with tartar sauce. The humble English potato is jazzed up with truffle juice in Roast Potato Soup, while the Majestic Irish Oyster sits pretty on a decadent bed of artichoke custard and Kristal caviar. The menu will be available for both lunch (from S$98++/4-course set lunch) and dinner (S$268++/8-course set dinner).
