Hooga (pronounced hue-guh) is a concept of living derived from the Danish word “hygge”. But what is the meaning of hygge? The hygge concept cannot be translated to one single word but it encompasses a feeling of cosy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life. With so many cold, dark days during the winter month, the Danes incorporate hygge into their daily life to create a wonderfully warm and cosy atmosphere.
Hygge is the art form of creating intimacy in any given moment. It’s about sitting by the fire with a mug of cocoa, enjoying the company of your loved ones or waking up on a chilly morning, reading a book while you’re all wrapped up in a blanket.
When it comes to embracing the concept, it’s always about creating a warm and cosy atmosphere. Candles, lamps, and fireplaces are among the common uses of lighting. It is common in Scandinavian decor to find candles scattered throughout the space or fairy lights draped across the mantle. Colour palette that is neutral contributes to an atmosphere of harmony and peace. Soft and fluffy textures are some of the key elements in the hygge concept. Think: fluffy pillows and soft rugs. There’s nothing better than snuggling up on the couch with layers of blankets and pillows.
The Danish concept of hygge has spread its warmth across the world and has inspired and influenced their brand – Hooga.
Known for pioneering mixology in Singapore, renowned Maison Ikkoku celebrates the best of regional produce with the launch of new establishment Sling. Set to revive the internationally recognised Singapore Sling for a new generation, Sling introduces an all-natural craft cocktail menu that showcases innovative interpretations on this classic tipple alongside a mouth-watering array of artisanal local cuisine.
Singaporean Founder, mixologist and chef-extraordinaire of Maison Ikkoku - Mr Ethan Leslie Leong, saw a stagnancy with the national cocktail and decided to bring the Singapore Sling back into the limelight. “As palates get more refined, guests demand more options and styles of cocktails. At Sling, we are dedicated to finding you the perfect Singapore Sling that suits your character, taste preference or mood. Of course, food is an integral part of the Singaporean identity, and we have refined local dishes to showcase our cocktail offerings’”.
The new level-one space of Maison Ikkoku will be converted into Sling come 17 February 2020 while retaining its art gallery featuring Singaporean-inspired paintings.
Widely regarded as the national drink; the Singapore Sling was first created in 1915 by Hainanese bartender Ngiam Tong Boon. This national treasure among Singaporeans and discerning travellers has gained both local and international recognition through its historical significance. Using all-natural craft ingredients from the region, Ethan has curated five distinctive interpretations of this iconic cocktail that are ideal the modern palate.
For a traditional version that pays homage to its heritage, the Original SLING ($26) is crafted with the classic London Dry Gin with juniper-forward notes, Cherry Heering, Bénédictine D.O.M, Cointreau, Angostura Bitters, homemade fresh Grenadine with fresh pineapple and lemon foam for a perfectly balanced concoction.
Inspired by the kampong days in the early 1900s when coconut plantations covered Singapore’s land inthe East, Coco SLING ($28) is a playful interpretation on the classic that includes the addition of roasted coconut and young coconut foam.
The perfect complement to a locally-inspired cocktail, Sling’s food menu presents familiar Singaporean favourites with a decidedly Peranakan flair – a homage to Ethan's grandmother.
The curated menu at SLING features impactful and flavourful starters such as Classic Kueh Pie Tee ($19), homemade canapé cups filled with stewed turnip, long beans, tofu, shredded pomelo, coriander and eggs, and a quintessential local favourite Yu Sheng ($18) with thinly sliced raw fish tossed with Asian coriander, green chillis, ginger and calamansi juice.
Highlights from the sharing plate offerings include a traditional D.I.Y Popiah available in Vegetarian ($36), Sweet Pork ($39), and Crispy Prawn ($49). Presented in a traditional tingkat, each tier opens to reveal four homemade popiah skin, plant-based stewed turnip and carrots, long beans, eggs, coriander, shallots, beansprouts, tofu, roasted sesame seeds and other accoutrements depending on the choice. Sweet Pork features Chinese waxed sausages as a topping while the Crispy Prawn has deep-fried prawn fritters - both give additional fragrance and texture to this familiar dish. Innovative placards detailing the wrapping method comes with the dish, acting as the perfect conversation starter.
Sharing plates at Sling features heart-warming recipes from Ethan's childhood, updated with modern cooking techniques. "My best memories come from watching my grandmother cook a giant tureen of curry to feed our family of 12. My dishes are a tribute to her while sharing Singaporean cuisine on an elevated level."
Straight from Ethan's grandmother's cookbook, the Turmeric Chicken ($28) contains juicy pieces of chicken fillet simmered in ginger, lemongrass and turmeric, to form a flavourful curry best paired with Nasi Biru ($3) – Japanese pearl rice with bluepea flower and lemongrass. Other mains include star dishes such as Babi Hitam ($39) and Rendang ($45).
A not-to-be-missed dish is the Kambing Bakar ($39) – a tender frenched rack of lamb marinated in local herbs and fresh pandan leaves, and Ikan Asam ($32) – a beautifully poached, then grilled salmon fillet in an ambrosial assam, tomato and onion sauce atop a bed of chickpeas. Accoutrements such asTimun Pedas ($12) – cucumber pickles and Kampong Sayur ($19) – seasonal local vegetables stir- fried with anchovies complete the meal.
For a sweet finale, Sling's sole dessert of Kueh Dadar ($16) shows off a freshly made French-style pandan crêpe, homemade young coconut espuma, toasted coconut shavings and a shot glass filled with fragrant gula Malacca syrup.
Sling only accepts walk-ins and does not take any reservations.
