See familiar dishes in a brand new light

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? As much as we love the spate of new F&B joints popping up everyday, there’s some respect to be had for a restaurant that has stood the test of time in Singapore, and continues to keep things fresh for its loyal fans. Every month, we scope out some of your best-loved places for the new menus they’re bringing to the table.
 

Botanico at The Garage
 


 

With a renewed focus on Southeast Asian flavours, Botanico at The Garage offers a revamped menu that brings together head chef Sujatha Asokan’s heritage and regional produce, taking things up a notch at the elegant Botanic Gardens restaurant. Here, look forward to heritage-inspired dishes like the refreshing Wing Bean Salad, a nod to a Malaysian-style dish consumed during a staff meal by the head chef herself; as well as the Corn Panipuri which serves up crisp sphere shells filled with curried corn foam. Then there’s the Herbal Chicken, a dish that mellows out the medicinal taste of the traditional Chinese dish with 'chicken rice' couscous, angelica sauce, cucamelons and kale to create a less divisive and more enjoyable main.

Being at The Garage also means you can always head down to its sister restaurant Bee’s Knees for a tipple or two; go ahead and end the night with easy drinking cocktails that include original creations like the fruity GrapeFruit Stardust and dark rum-infused Under The Sea.


 

LeVeL33
 


 

If you have not had the opportunity to explore LeVeL33 post-circuit breaker, now would be a good time to try the revamped menu available at the world’s highest urban microbrewery.

Spotlighting locally farmed ingredients, be enticed by eats such as the comforting Ah Hua Kelong Seafood Bouillabaisse comprising local mussels, prawns, clams and fish delivered fresh every single day from Ah Hua Kelong; as well as the Local Barramundi from Kuhlbarra inspired by the hawker favourite grilled stingray.

The restaurant, which participates in the Ugly Vegetable programme, also strives to reduce food wastage by featuring options like the addictive Grilled 'Ugly' French Beans that's grilled and powdered with a spice mix.

Finally, don’t forget to give LeVeL33's Beer Ice Cream a try, as the housemade stout coffee ice cream served on a bed of spent grain crumble is unique to the lounge and easily refreshes the palate for dessert.


 

Se7enth at Oakwood Premier AMTD Singapore
 


 

It’s a delightful harmony of East and West at Oakwood Premier AMTD Singapore’s Se7enth restaurant that introduces eight new mains as part of its new ala carte menu designed by Executive Chef Gary Lim. Go for the Alaskan King Crab Seafood Platter with Truffle Risotto and tuck into snow crab legs, mussels and prawns baked in garlic and herbs plus a luscious bowl of truffle risotto; or the Chicken Roulade with Apricot and Raisins to relish some tender chicken thigh meat rolled with minced meat, apricots and raisins.

The Wagyu Katsu sandwich featuring tender breaded wagyu striploin steak clasped between grilled brioche bread slices might satisfy those with a larger appetite and penchant for Japanese cuisine.

If that’s not enough, young families will be happy to know that the latest kids' menu also boasts bowls of udon, beef patties, grilled salmon and other nutritious options for the little ones. Now the whole family can readily dine at Se7enth without any qualms.
