Audace at Wanderlust Hotel– Fine dining in a fun dining way!

[Media Invite]

Did you know you can get Michelin star quality food in the heart of Little India? Opened since May 2017, Audace, short for “Audacity” is helmed by Chef Jeremy Gillon, who led L’Epicurien in the French Alps to receive its first ever Michelin star in 2015. He has also worked for numerous famed restaurants in France, including 2 Michelin Star restaurants Alexandre in Garons and Le Chabichou in Courchevel. But it’s not a prim and proper restaurant that you will find in Audace, instead, the atmosphere is casual and relaxed. The food however is what you would associate with fine-dining restaurants.

One thing you should look out for when you dine at Audace is Chef Jeremy’s use of alpine herbs in his cooking. The wild herbs are collected and dried before being brought into Singapore where the nuances of each herb is brought out by turning them into syrups, vinegars, candying, frying or simply being used as garnish.

Audace Sunday Brunch

Pictured above is food portioned out for 2 pax per dish

I was at Audace recently to check out their Sunday Brunch set menu. For $68++ you are served 6 appetisers, 5 main courses & sides and 5 desserts (single person portion)! That’s a lot of variety of food! If you want some “fine-dining” food in a “fun dining” setting, you might just want to check out Audace. Depending on the number of diners you have at the table, the food will be portioned out accordingly. Scroll down to read more about my favourite dishes! The menu changes frequently so you may not get the same dishes I did, but the style and substance would probably be similar.

FiSK Seafoodbar & Market–The place to get your fill of Norwegian seafood

Was recently invited to attend a Norwegian seafood dinner organised by the Norwegian Seafood Council, held at the newly opened FiSK Seafoodbar & Market. I’ve always had an extra keen interest on things related to Norway simply because years ago, I used to work for a shipping company with strong Norwegian links. And I’ve also been to Norway, most expensive trip of my life so far, even though air tickets were only $400 on Qatar Airways. Yes.

When the Norwegian Seafood Council invites you to a seafood dinner, you’d be an idiot to say no. Because you know that the seafood that they are going to serve is going to be one of the best and freshest you can possibly get in Singapore. I mean or else why host a dinner right? But not just that, if the venue is at the restaurant whose owner, Frank Næsheim, is also in the business of importing Norwegian seafood into Singapore (Snorre Food), you make sure to cancel all other appointments on that day specially to attend this dinner. No-brainer right?

Fisk Seafoodbar & Market

Apparently Norway is a very good place for seafood to grow. Because of the ice-cold and crystal clear waters, all Norwegian seafood grows slowly and develops a taste and texture that is sought after by chefs and connoisseurs. The story does make sense, because why do people live in such harshly cold conditions, if not for the fact that they can obtain a good product from the land, or sea in this case?
