5 must eats at Marina Bay Sands’ Epicurean Market 2017

If you’ve been following my Instagram, you would have realised that the annual Epicurean Market at Marina Bay Sands is currently on until 13 August Sunday. This is already the 5th year and the event is bigger than ever before! If you’ve always wanted to check out the Celebrity Restaurants, now’s the time to do so because many of their signature dishes can be sampled for a fraction of the price it would cost at the restaurants.

This year, aside from Celebrity Restaurants, enjoy the Singapore Street Food experience by trying local dishes/hawker fare presented by the newly refreshed RISE Restaurant. And of course not forgetting over 30 masterclasses, tasting sessions, special appearances, bespoke cocktails. And before you leave, take home some fresh gourmet produce from the Farmer’s Market.

Each $39 per ticket gives you unlimited entry plus a $15 signature dish of your choice. OK with so many celebrity and signature restaurants to choose from, how do you decide where to spend your money? After sampling each of the restaurants during the media preview on Friday, here are my top 5 picks based on taste, value-for-money and uniqueness. Enjoy!

Epicurean Market - Lobster Roll $25 from DB Bistro and Oyster Bar

Lobster Roll $25 from DB Bistro and Oyster Bar

If you love lobster rolls, you will know that they cost a pretty penny in Singapore. I know of some restaurants/cafes to be charging in excess of $40 per roll! So this $25 lobster roll from DB Bistro is great value considering the size of it and considering that it’s from DB Bistro. It’s big enough to actually be sufficient as a meal too, if you are on cost-savings mode.

Epicurean Market - Sweet Corn Agnolotti $20 from Spago

Sweet Corn Agnolotti with truffle shavings $20 from Spago

With practically every restaurant offering dishes boasting premium ingredients like crab, lobster and carviar, it’s hard to choose a favourite because they were all good. This sweet corn agnolotti with truffle shavings might just be my favourite dish from Epicurean Market. It’s so different from the other dishes. I really like the pillowy soft pasta parcels bursting with sweetness, and the earthy contrast of the truffles. I won’t lie about the portion size though, it’s as small as it looks… but tasted so good! I really want to return to Spago again for the full-sized portion!

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!
