Take three of London’s best restaurants, three of the world’s most renowned chefs, three of the world’s most celebrated mixologists, and add in three DJs for good measure. What do you get? The Singapore Supperclub.
At Bluebird Chelsea
(all D&D institutions) from 4-6 October, the innovative flavours of Singapore will be showcased. The Michelin-starred Singapore-based chefs Julien Royer (Odette), Jason Tan (Corner House) and Malcolm Lee (Candlenut) will all create their own bespoke set menus. These will be paired with cocktails made by mixologists working at bars featured in The World’s 50 Best Bars list.
Royer and mixologist Vijay Mudaliar from Singapore’s Native (47th on the top 50 list) will present a six-course tasting menu at Angler
in Moorgate. Marrying the classic British cuisine of Angler and Royer’s distinct Asian influences, dishes include Dorset crab with nashi pear, Orkney scallops with potimarron and hay-smoked pigeons. Our top pick for the paired cocktails would be the Trigona of stingless bee mead, kampot pepper and smoked hay.
Meanwhile at Bluebird
, Jason Tan and Sasha Wijidessa from Operation Dagger (24th on the list) will deliver three courses of Asian magic. Expect Carabinero prawn with yuzu, kosho, fennel, mint and shiso; Kristal de Chine caviar and Kaya toast (pandan, coconut, gula Melaka, muscovado and pineapple). Cocktails will include the Salty Dog (sea buckthorn sake, kelp vermouth, yuzu, lemon verbena and fig leaf).
Heading over to St James, Malcolm Lee and cocktail specialist Philip Bishoff from Manahatten at The Regent Hotel Singapore (7th on the list) will be showing off at Avenue Restaurant
. Nyonya Tok Penjang of beef cheek and tongue, salted duck egg turmeric coconut curry, and lobster masak titek papaya soup are some of the highlights on the menu. Opt for the Candlenut’s signature cocktail, the Chendol Cream.
