Epicurean Market by Marina Bay Sands

Managed to snag an invite to the Epicurean Market food fair. If you’ve always wanted to try all the Celebrity Restaurants but didn’t want to rob a bank, you might like to come down to the Epicurean Market, where you can sample the various restaurants like Cut, Waku Ghin, DB Moderne etc. The portions are bite sized so the prices are lowered accordingly. It isn’t cheap to dine here, but you are paying to get variety.

For the price of $59, you get $30 worth of vouchers to spend at the Epicurean Market, in addition to being able to attend all the Master Classes. For more information on ticketing or the masterclass and workshop schedule, visit the Epicurean Market Marina Bay Sands website.

Here are some pictures I took today! Spent FIVE hours there!!

Who’s the handsomest chef of them all? Is it just me and Mario Batalli, or do you also wanna hang some sausages around your neck?

I’d heard that the Epicurean Market was a dead town on Friday, but as you can see, the picture proves that it’s pretty lively, although definitely not jammed packed like the IT Show!

Covelli Italian Bistro at Orchard Central

*Media Invite*

Orchard Central is very much the quieter kid on the block as compared to the bustling 313 Somerset Mall. Or perhaps I should use “was”, as I’ve no doubt that people have been thronging the mall since the opening of Dean & Deluca on the 4th Floor? Do check out the 2 basement levels if you go to Orchard Central. There’s a whole row of shops selling quaint little trinkets. And did you know that there is an underpass that connects Centrepoint Mall to Orchard Central?

Apart from Medz Restaurant, where my friend held her daughter’s 1st birthday, there is also Covelli. Covelli Italian Bistro and Wine Bar is a pretty posh looking Italian Restaurant. It has a cosy stonewall entrance, and a black and white themed decor. When you see it for the 1st time, you might assume that it would cost a hefty penny to dine there, but the reality couldn’t be further. Most of their pizzas cost between $20 – $22, which is very reasonable price. The reason why I’m even mentioning pizza even though I didn’t get to try it for dinner is because the people at the next table ordered a pizza. It was so humongous, it was almost covered the entire table.

My dining companion and I got to sample a few signature dishes at Covelli. The pictures shown here are smaller than the size of the dishes you would get as a paying customer.

Antipasto Fruitti di Mare (Tataki Tuna, cured Salmon, Crabmeat and Avocado topped with Avruga Caviar & Balsamic Reduction) $18

For those of you who want a bit of everything, this might just be the dish for you. There was a lot going on in this dish, as you can see from the picture and the descriptive text. For my 1st mouthful, I made sure to get a bit of everything. It was a little overwhelming as the taste of the crab and the caviar were most prominent. Subsequently, I prised everything apart and enjoyed the layers individually, and found the dish to be more enjoyable. I could at least finally taste the lovely cured salmon, which is something I love very much.

Goodwood Park – L’Espresso

Me and my afternoon tea. Nothing puts me in a better mood than the idea of having some English afternoon tea. If I had my way, I would have it every day 🙂

I think the Goodwood Park serves one of the best value for money English Afternoon tea buffet in Singapore. It costs about $38 if I don’t remember wrongly, and they have it every single day of the week! There are very few places in Singapore that serves English Afternoon tea buffet on weekdays. Off the cuff, the only other one I can think of is Rose Verandah at Shangri-La. Fullerton Hotel has a refillable tiered set, and that’s pretty good as well.

There are many places that charge over $30 for a 3 tiered tea service, but it is not refillable. Unless you just want to munch a little or share 1 set between 2 people, don’t you think it’s much better to pay a few dollars more to get so much more?

Anyway, I shall leave you to enjoy these pictures i took at L’Espresso during my week long birthday celebration. The food is really as good as it looks 🙂 ! Oh and one reason why you really should try out L’Espresso is that they have free flow of Haagen Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream! How cool is that???? And I can load it with as much almond flakes as I want. Vanilla ice cream and almond flakes are a match made in heaven, trust me on that.
