This week, there’s a whole lot of dude food at Loof and The Carvery, lunch sets with a fine dining flourish on Keong Saik, and new dishes at Gallery & Co.
Weekday Set Lunches at Cure
If your week has been a doozy, head over to Cure for a great meal at (more) affordable prices. One of our favourite spots on Keong Saik Road, this modern European bistro helmed by Chef Andrew Walsh is offering customisable two- and three-course set lunches for $38++ and $48++ respectively. With three choices per course, look forward a lunch menu consisting of favourites and monthly changing dishes like Wagyu Beef Dumpling and Pumpkin Granola with burrata curd for starters and Flame Grilled Mackerel and Iberico Pork Loin with smoked Mussels for mains. A five-vourse lunch tasting menu is also available at $58++ per person.
Cure is located at 21 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089128, p. 6221 2189. Open for lunch Wed-Fri 12-2.30pm.
Dude-Sin Food at Loof by Bjorn Shen
Everyone loves a great rooftop bar, and Loof has been an icon of Singapore’s nightlife over the last ten years. In ushering in the next decade of local lovin’ and good vibes, they’ve collaborated with Chef Bjorn Shen (aka the dude behind Artichoke and Bird Bird) to develop a new food menu that goes oh-so-well with Asian-influenced cockails by Lo & Behold’s Group Bar Mentor Julian Serna. You’ll find substantial plates like the B.C.M Grilled Cheese ($18) – inspired by bak chor mee and cheese toasties and bites like the Cheeseburger Yakitori ($18, think Wagyu cheeseburger on a stick) and Chilli Crab Fries ($15).
Loof is located at #03-07 Odeon Towers Extension Rooftop, 331 North Bridge Road, Singapore 188720, p. 6337 9416. Open Mon-Thu 5pm-1am, Fri-Sat 5pm-2am. Closed on Sun.
The Great Meat Feast at The Carvery
Beef lovers, you should definitely make it down to this one. From now till 22 October 2016, The Carvery has assembled a line-up of premium beef cuts for their daily dinner buffet (6.30pm-10pm). Priced at $78++ per adult on weekdays (Sun-Thu) and $88++ on weekends (Fri-Sat), diners can expect a rotating selection of beef on top of The Carvery’s usual roasts, such as grass-fed beef from Cape Grim, 500-day chocolate and grain fed Mayura full-blood wagyu, and Japanese Aomori rice beef (only available during weekends). Also look out for the buffet’s wine pairing, starting from $14++ per glass and $68++ per bottle.
The Carvery is located at Level 7, Park Hotel Alexandra, 323 Alexandra Road, Singapore 159972, p. 6828 8880.
Culinary Refresh at Gallery & Co.
Housed within National Gallery Singapore, Gallery & Co. (also one of our much-loved retail stores in Singapore) gets a menu revamp by Restaurant Cocotte’s Head Chef Anthony Yeoh. Focused on celebrating Singapore’s multiculturalism, museum visitors and folks who work in the area can look forward to hearty dishes like the Otak Otak Taco ($17) and Spiced Roast Chicken Leg ($17) with coriander-garlic pesto and eggplant salad. Otherwise, head down during tea-time for a slice of Ondeh-Ondeh Cake ($9.50) or Sweet Potato & Yam Tart ($7.50) with Papa Pahelta coffee.
Gallery & Co. is located at National Gallery Singapore, 1 St Andrew’s Road, Singapore 178957. Open Sun-Thu 11am-7pm, Fri-Sat 11am-10pm.
Lolla Turns 4
Having opened to critical success in Ann Siang almost four years ago, Lolla has survived the fickle local dining scene…just to offer you a glass of champagne on the house with every Sunday brunched booked online per adult in October and November 2016! Aside from the usual favourites like the uni pudding and grilled avocado, expect brunch-only menu items like san Marzano tomato and smoked applewood cheese loaf, beef tongue hash, and baked Shropshire blue cheese omelette alongside Mimosas at $4++ per glass.
Lolla is located at 22 Ann Siang Road, Singapore 069702, p. 6423 1228. Open for Sunday brunch 10.30am-3pm. Use promo code “LOLLALOVESME” for the free glass of champagne.
