An award-winning four hands chef collaboration, more croissants oozing goodness, and an excuse to head back to Maggie Joan’s – there’s much happening in our eat and drink scene this week.
Expanded Lunch Offerings at Maggie Joan’s
Hot on the heels of the opening of Gemmills, the familiar folks at Maggie Joan’s are set to up their CBD lunchtime game. Spice up your corporate lunch with new starters like tuna tartare, black olive, & red pepper ($17), while substantial mains like the 400g stockyard striploin, gremolata & anchovy butter ($82) and the housemade parpadelle pasta with lamb ragu ($28) will keep you fueled for the rest of the working day.

Antoinette Launches More Lava Croissants
Hot on the heels of the salted egg yolk lava croissants, then the chili crab croissants, Antoinette’s Chef Pang has launched three more variations ($6++ each) of the flaky pastry oozing delicious centres. The Charcoal Kaya Croissant uses their housemade Queen’s Kaya, while the other two are classic flavours of the East and the West – Matcha (green tea) and Quatre Fromages (four cheese – aged Cheddar, Gruyère, Parmesan and Mozzarella) respectively.
Antoinette is located at Penhas Road, Sofitel So, and Mandarin Gallery. The croissants are available at Penhas Road from 11am on weekdays and 10am on weekends. Available at Mandarin Gallery and Sofitel So from 12 noon daily.
Chir Chir Rolls Out New Dishes
Besides being able to get your Korean fried chicken fix at 2am in the morning at Chir Chir’s latest outlet at Chinatown Point, this KFC (get it?) chain has come up with another way to enjoy the chook – the Honey Butter Chicken ($28.90). More non-chicken alternatives making their debut on the menu include Spicy Seafood Soup ($26.90) and Spicy Topokki ($15.90).
