Tis’ the season of chef collaborations and new restaurants indeed. Just last week, the chefs from Taipei’s Mume restaurant were in town for a joint dinner at Pollen, where diners were treated to an eight-course meal featuring signature dishes from both restaurants. If you missed out on that, fret not, as there’s more to come: On 7 September, chef Roberto Terradillos of Spain’s one-Michelin-starred El Serbal will step into the kitchen of La Ventana for a special six-course dinner showcasing dishes such as bonito tuna and lamb loin.
Following that, André Chiang of two-Michelin-starred Restaurant André will team up with Danish chef Esben Holmboe Bang of three-starred Maaemo on 8 and 9 September, on lunch and dinner collaborations. We can’t wait to see how that turns out; we’re certain it’ll be a blast.
On the new restaurants front, September brings with it many interesting venues that come armed with a diversity of cuisines ranging from Mexican to Spanish and Japanese. Highlights include a small yakitori joint tucked away in Circular Road, PS.Cafe’s largest (and possibly the most scenic) outlet yet, and Butcher Boy — an Asian-inspired grill and bar by Cure’s chef-owner Andrew Walsh. Read on for our pick of 10 new restaurants that are worth checking out.
