Check out Moosehead Kitchen & Bar, Spuds & Aprons, Hotel Jen and Sand Bar’s new, lip-smackin’ menus.
Head up to Spuds & Aprons via cable car for one of the best natural green views on the island. The restaurant has refreshed its menu with new mains, sides and an entire tapas section. Dig into comforting dishes like their sweet potato fries with sea salt and Japanese curry mayo ($10), and the Quack and Go ($26), an Asian-inspired duck leg confit served with brown rice and mango salad. Their new tapas section also offers great food to go with a tipple, including mushroom and beef bulgogi served with pita ($18), and crispy fish skin with passion fruit ’bomb’ ($14).

Moosehead Kitchen-Bar’s first supper series kicks off on 4 Nov, 10pm onwards for one night only. The cheeky collaboration with Bib Gourmand-awarded A Noodle Story sees seven new inspired dishes such as char-grilled wanton wrapped in bacon ($8) to go with a lighter version of their thin, springy yellow noodles ($5) in a kelp broth. Standouts include the Inka-grilled thick cut char siew ($10) and char-grilled broccolini ($8) which are punchy with caramelised bits. “Iced Tea” and “Iced Milo” cocktails ($12 each) round out the offerings–both available while portions last. Look for regular collaborations in the supper series to come. 110 Telok Ayer Street. Tel: 6636 8055
That’s Hokkien for “tasty”, and it’s also the fun food programme taking place from 14 Nov-11 Dec at Hotel Jen Tanglin and Hotel Jen Orchardgateway. Both hotel’s restaurants, J65 at the former and Makan@Jen at the latter will be serving up a rotation of Asian-inspired treats such as chilli crab fondue, laksa lemak Singapura, laksa Johor slider, smoked pulled lamb pongteh and ginataang turon at their buffet spreads. The laksa Johor slider is made with a spaghetti ’bun’ and mouthwatering laksa marinated patty, while the ginataang turon is a combination of two irresistible Filipino sweet snacks: halo-halo and banana fritters. Hor jiak is one of the new initiatives from Hotel Jen’s #LeaveBoringBehind campaign–so look out for more quirky inspirations from both properties.
