Forget run-of-the-mill children’s meal options such as chicken nuggets, fish and chips and spaghetti Bolognese. Fine-dining restaurants and casual eateries here are making an effort to wow kids by serving beautifully plated, uncommon dishes for the little ones. Think four-course meals, build- your-own burgers, deconstructed Caesar salads and more…

THE PEAK

Who doesn’t like dessert? That finale of your meal, the sweet flavour that lingers on after you’re done with the main course? Of course you do.

The current menu is the most confident yet, with almost every dish delivering in terms of flavour, execution and concept. I don’t know if restaurants can be existentialist, but if they could, Saint Pierre must have been asking “Who am I?” ever since it moved from Central Mall to Sentosa and now to its Singapore River-facing dining room at One Fullerton…

Jonathan Allaert’s sweet calling came through an actual accident. An accident not caused by him but rather by his mother. When she was a child, she had forgotten to turn off a gas stove that nearly caused the family house to be burned down. This developed a phobia in her and ever since then, she forbade using fire in the house unless really necessary…

This miniscule seed is a nutritional powerhouse loaded with fibre, protein (complete with amino acid lysine), calcium, iron, magnesium, and uncommonly, Vitamin C…

ROBB REPORT SINGAPORE
September 2016

Emmanuel Stroobant is known as the Chef in Black, but his latest venture should see him rebadging his colours to green. When Stroobant debuted Saint Pierre in 2000, his brand of classic French cuisine set the benchmark for fine dining in Singapore, before he decided to relocate in favour of a slightly more casual approach at Quayside Isle, Sentosa, in 2013…

HER WORLD
September 2016

When done right, a vegetarian dish can be just as hearty and moreish as its meaty counterparts. Inspired by the clean-tasting, fresh-tune-like flesh of an organic Japanese winter melon from Okinawa, chef-owner Emmanuel Stroobant built a tartare-like dish around it, and topped it off with pickled radish and locally-grown cress…
