From Margaret River Wagyu to Fremantle octopus, Dorper lamb to Blue Ridge marron, Western Australia’s finest flavours take centre stage through the month of June with the inaugural Plating Up WA: Singapore Edition.
An initiative by the Government of Western Australia Office, Plating Up WA: Singapore Edition gives discerning diners a chance to enjoy Western Australia-inspired dishes, made-in-Western Australia wines, and craft beers prepared by some of the best names in the F&B industry.
Running in tandem with its sister edition in Western Australia, this Singapore edition marks the first time the dining festival has expanded across the Australian shores.
Now in its fifth iteration, the campaign has seen a plethora of participating restaurants present new dishes that bring attention to Western Australia’s quality ingredients, as well as the state’s artisan producers and growers.
Since its inception, they’ve been all about encouraging diners to embrace homegrown goodness and placing seasonal ingredients in the spotlight.
Throughout June, 21 venues across Singapore will be putting up their own Plating Up WA creations, including Brewerkz Orchard Rendezvous, the Michelin-starred Burnt Ends, new Australian restaurant KAARLA, both Meatsmith restaurants, Open Farm Community, Prego, and Publico Ristorante. The exclusive dishes are either featured on their respective venue’s à la carte menu or as part of a degustation offering.
Amongst those taking part is Executive Chef Peter Rollinson of FLUTES Restaurant. Situated in the National Museum, the Modern European restaurant presents a degustation menu featuring Exmouth Spanish Mackerel, Western King Prawns, Blue Ridge Marron and Margaret River Wagyu.
Diners also stand a chance to win a trip for two (flight and accommodation) to Perth in the Plating Up WA: Singapore Edition Passport Competition lucky draw by simply dining and collecting stamps across 5 of the festival’s venues in June.
