Free the Robot is like a transformer. You know, like the type that fights for Cybertron but doesn’t actually mange to hit anything with its laser. During the days the venue functions as a quirky cafe; at nights it turns into Bitter and Love, a fun cocktail bar.
Our lunch at Tippling Club, a serial Asia’s Best 50 restaurant, was stellar. It was a creative, innovative and tasty journey that lasted 3 hours. Chef Ryan Clift has made sure every step of the way was filled with fun, playful and surprising elements.
Salted egg yolk: what started as a gravy for a common Singaporean crab dish caught on like fire to become a nation-wide craze in the form of, well, everything edible! Salted egg yolk fish and chips, salted egg yolk burgers, salted egg yolk prata, salted egg yolk chicken wings, salted egg yolk udon and the list goes on and on and on. No eatery in Singapore could stand idle and even Mcdonalds joined the trend, launching a fried chicken burger with salted egg yolk gravy in June to ridiculously long queues of eager customers. Shortly after, many restaurants in Singapore made sure to include at least one salted egg yolk item in their menu.
Sometimes the timing works out just right. We’re really excited to share this post with you, since our lunch at JAAN under chef Kirk Westaway last month was one of our best ever, and only a few days ago have they received their first star in Singapore’s debut Michelin guide. If it were up to us, we would give them ten of those, and we’re about to tell you just why!
