Cook & Brew at The Westin introduces refreshed menu based on Executive Chef’s family recipes

[Media Invite]

Sometimes change is a good thing. A couple of years back when I first visited Cook & Brew, located on the 33rd floor of The Westin Singapore, the ambience looked really promising but the food was just average. This time round, I am glad to report that Cook & Brew’s refreshed menu is much more appetising and exciting. The following are some of the dishes that are worth checking out.

Whipped Buffalo Milk Ricotta Cheese

Whipped Buffalo Milk Ricotta Cheese $15

Before you do anything else, order this appetiser first. This was seriously so good. Who knew that a slab of Buffalo milk ricotta with truffle honey on a slice of grilled bread could be this good? I think I single-handedly finished half a pot of that ricotta cheese.

The BOILER opens 2nd outlet at Esplanade– Roll up your sleeves and eat seafood with your hands here.

[Media Invite]

If you love seafood, especially the seafood-in-a bag kind where all dining etiquette goes out the window and everyone gets stuck in with their hands, you’ll be glad to know that The Boiler has opened a second outlet in town at the Esplanade Mall. This expansion comes with an al-fresco bar in addition to the air-conditioned main dining area. Their original outlet is in Tai Seng, and this is in fact their 4th year of operations.

The Boiler takes pride in its sauces to set it apart from similar seafood boil concepts. The seafood boil concept is Louisiana-inspired, but The Boiler has developed seasonal sauces with local twists, such as sambal and laksa which customers may choose to have with their seafood.

Antoinette’s new menu for 2018 scores again with its savoury dishes.

[Media Invite]

Dining at Antoinette is always a very pleasant affair. In this Instagram era where F&B’s pop-up and close down as fast as you can count, Antoinette gives you the feeling that it is here to stay. I’ve personally visited at least 10 or so times over the last few years? What amazes me is that Chef-Owner Pang Kok Keong seems to show no limits when it comes to introducing new dishes to his menu. All restaurants have to do that from time to time, but Chef Pang comes up with numerous dishes that are not only pretty to the eye (or camera), but taste good as well. Simply put, these are dishes I would return again to have.

This time round, I thought the new appetisers and main dishes stood out. My favourites from this lot has got to be the double prawn linguine, the wagyu beef tagliatelle, the baked rigatoni and the black bait. I’m quite sad to see last year’s Hakka inspired dishes go, but at least we have these new ones to look forward to.

Dian Xiao Er - Chilli Soft Shell Crab   Fried Mantou $42.80

Chilli Soft Shell Crab and Fried Mantou $42.80 (M)

Celebrate Singapore’s birthday month at Dian Xiao Er with Chilli crab, one of Singapore’s beloved and iconic dishes. But what’s special about this chilli crab is that soft-shell crab is used, so for once, we can all just dive right in with our mantous in hand, slurping up the luxurious sweet and spicy chilli crab sauce, without having to fiddle with hard shells and cracked nails. It’s a wonder this dish is not more commonly found! And alas, you have only up to 2 September to enjoy this!

Edge - Revamped Dinner Buffet

I think the double-boiled soups and Teh Tarik in particular would appeal to the older generation, so if you are looking for a dinner buffet venue for multi-generational families, this might just be the place.
