Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar's second outlet in Singapore will be opening on 16 October, bringing to the lively Katong neighbourhood the restaurant’s signature fresh, quality lobsters at incomparable prices.
Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar takes pride in serving the finest live lobsters. Wild caught lobsters are air-flown direct weekly from the Atlantic Coast and stored in Pince & Pint’s very own cutting edge deep sea tanks. A curated range of beverages and impeccable service complement the superstars on its menu: The Lobster Roll, light and crispy rolls stuffed with hearty chunks of sweet lobster and seasoned with a house speciality mix of condiments, and the inimitable Live Whole Lobster, served with choice of either grilled or steamed versions and accompanied with sides of chef’s salad, straight cut fries and butter sauce.
The 60-seater restaurant is nestled along the charming, heritage-rich streets of Katong. Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar Katong brings with its grand opening two new additions to its communal-friendly menu.
Chomp on a different take of everyone’s favourite meat-and- patty combination, The Lobster Burger with its juicy, lip-smacking lobster patty in the middle. Or slurp away on a dish closer to the local’s palate, The Lobster Noodles.
d’Good Café was established in 2012 at a 2-storey shophouse in Holland Village. They have now branched out to Ngee Ann City too.
On their menu, you will see poached fresh lobster pasta ($26 for half lobster, $48 for whole), D'Lobster Roll ($22, above), slow-braised cider pork cheek ($16), pan-roasted chicken breast ($16) and more.
Indulge in the perfect combination of sparkling wines and seafood at their contemporary European-Japanese Seafood Wine Bar. Relish freshly shucked oysters, their signature chilled seafood platters or savour the preserved natural flavours of fresh seafood done A La Plancha style on a hot grill.
Along Prinsep Street amidst the buzzing activities of the various restaurants, cafeterias, offices and schools is Captain K Seafood Tower, a new Korean Seafood concept that will surely delight seafood and shellfish lovers.
Captain K, a name cleverly coined by the founder to signify the captain of the steam-boat, steering and pioneering new culinary creations for food lovers. K implies anything Korean, and we can expect that after Captain K Seafood Tower, there will be other Captain K food outlets adding to the multitude of Korean inspired food choices in Singapore.
Conceptualized by the team and presenting Korea’s latest culinary sensation is this visually exciting Korean Seafood Tower, or Nine Layers of Steamed Shells as it may be known in other parts of Asia. It is the latest steamboat craze that is bound to take Singapore by storm.
Buttergrill is a new restaurant created by a few food enthusiasts who wanted to bring the best recipes to everyone.
Their concept team believed in finding the best ingredient, which are meticulously sourced from producers that share their ethos and the same satisfaction in what they do.
Their menu is all about creating butters that are tried and tested in their recipes. Butter is one of the oldest and most natural foods on the planet that has been a delicious part of the human diet for many years. With their special recipes, butters are now combined with current, innovative ideas and a twist to the taste, creating flavorful butters, which they take enormous pride in.
Admittedly, they are little obsessed. They spend their time researching and experimenting different cooking methods to bring out the most exquisite characteristics in their butters. Finally after many challenges and trial, grilling is the best for savoring the flavor and essence of butter. They serve their food, grilled using chosen butter to enhance the palate and want to get people as excited about food as they are.
The latest, salubrious addition to the Craig Road stretch is PerBacco — an elegant Italian wine bar and restaurant helmed by chef-owner Marco Violano. In Italian, the word ‘PerBacco’ refers to Bacchus, the god of wine and good times and is also used as an expression of pleasure and surprise. It is, indeed, an apt name for an establishment that prides itself on offering an authentic, top-notch Italian bar and dining experience.
The long, spacious bar overlooks the charming street and offers an al fresco feel thanks to high chairs and tables arranged right by its large windows. Here, amid brick-lined walls and dark wood furnishings, Chef Marco offers an impressive range of whiskeys, rums, unpasteurised beers, Italian wines and other spirits, and a list of six classic cocktails including the Manhattan, Negroni, and Spritz. The cocktails are always made to perfection with premium spirits such as Fords London Dry Gin, High West Rye Whiskey and Bottega Gold Prosecco.
To accompany the drinks is a list of premium Ciccheti (Italian bar bites to share) that Chef Marco imports from Italy and stores in a beautiful cold room that forms part of the restaurant’s décor. There are cold cuts like Parma ham aged between 12, 24 and 36 months; mild and sweet small-batch salamenostrano; pure pork salame from Felino, a small town located in the Baganza valley; unctuous salame Milano; and soppressata, a dry salami native to Tuscany and Liguria. These are cut using a beautiful, traditional Tamagnini ham hand slicer brought in from Parma, Italy.
On the menu are refined classics from the Mediterranean, including Chef Marco’s signature homemade spaghetti chitarre (guitar spaghetti, in reference to the guitar-like tool used to make the noodles) with scampi and clay pot fregola (pasta made from semolina, similar to Israeli couscous) with fresh lobster.
Chef Marco makes it a point to import the finest ingredients from around the world, including beef from Kobe, Japan and lamb from New Zealand, which he cooks to deft perfection in his mixed grill. He also brings in seasonal vegetable, fruit and seafood such as mussels and clams from Italy twice weekly.
Hot on the heels of the popular halal-certified FIX Cafe, The Food Explorer F&B Group has just released the newest addition to their brand of casual eateries. Here comes FIX Grill, a casual mediterranean grill concept.
Built on the same promise as FIX Cafe, FIX Grill offers “Original Handmade Goods” of the edible kind and sets itself apart with a few choice touches.
The kitchen’s attention to detail can be seen in its range of creative appetisers, each component carefully put together to achieve a harmony of flavours in each dish. One such appetiser is the Watermelon and Prawn Salad. The watermelon cubes in the salad are first compressed, concentrating and enhancing the sweetness of each morsel, before being topped with contrasting flavours of crumbled feta, crunchy almonds and poached prawns and finished with a honey lemon verbena dressing.
Another appetiser not to be missed is the Hokkaido Scallops on Quinoa. These plump scallops are sweet & juicy and lend a delicious flavour to the bed of quinoa and grilled corn it sits on, perfectly complemented with a homemade romesco sauce.
Coming with a group of friends? The Assorted FIX Grill Platter of Skewers makes a great dish for sharing. This is no ordinary platter of meat cubes, expect creative items like Greek Beef Keftedes skewers, Lamb Moussaka skewers, Chicken Tsukune Yakitori skewers and Homemade Prawn & Fish Cake skewers, all grilled to perfection and served with a delicious homemade pumpkin mash and potato crisps.
There is a good selection of mains with sufficient variety to suit any palate. Pasta lovers can choose between the vegetarian Primavera Pasta, Seafood Pasta in a light broth or a hearty Homemade Beef Lasagna.
Meat lovers will delight in the Bone-in Beef Shortribs, slow-cooked for 24 hours to achieve a succulent texture and delicious beefy flavour. Or the Slow-Roasted Half Chicken which is tender, juicy and served with a porcini cream sauce.
Seafood lovers have not been missed with a FIX Lobster Roll featuring chunks of meat from a whole lobster tail in a creamy mayonnaise in a buttery soft homemade brioche bun. The Pan-seared Salmon on Wild Rice also makes for a great kid-friendly dish.
A perfect accompaniment to the dishes from the grill, FIX Grill also offers a range of Handcrafted Sodas made from fresh fruits and herbs. Take your pick from Strawberry & Sweet Basil, Pineapple & Passionfruit, Ginger & Lime or Kiwi & Mint, all refreshing in taste and delightfully colourful.
You will be pleased to discover new dishes to tease palate, particularly the Miso Lobster, an incredibly delightful burger of lobster chunks in tobiko and miso mayo, topped with cucumber and red radish and clasped between sesame buns, with shoestring fries on the side. For a lighter sandwich option, the Caprese pleases with a generous serving of mozzarella, air-dried cherry tomato spread, basil and roma tomatoes on focaccia toast, served with fries.
For a heartier meal, the Beef Cheek Pappardelle is most satisfying with tender braised beef cheek, confit tomato and parsley sitting atop broad flat pasta noodles. Interestingly,“papparedelle” is derived from the Italian verb “pappare” which means “to gobble up”,a definition fitting of this irresistible new dish.
Designed by Hui Designs, it showcases painted wooden wall panels in coastal blue, brightly coloured tiles, oak wood and ‘old-world’ checkered vinyl tiles flooring, juxtaposed with cane furniture, baskets, bamboo blinds, nautical-themed artwork and palm trees.
The new space is modern and enticing and highlights how coastal touches can meet "old-world" tropical charm to compliment the natural setting. The Waterfront Bar now takes on a more seafood-focused menu with oysters and succulent seafood at the helm.
During the day, it is the perfect spot to escape the heat and refresh with a cold flute of champagne as you admire the yachts, while at night it transforms into a breezy alfresco bar complete with a starry canopy perfect for chilling out pre or post-dinner. Enjoy only the freshest and most in-season oysters sourced from France all the way to New Zealand.
With an eye on always exciting the palate and broadening horizons, Waterfront Bar will also bring in seasonal oysters with unique flavour profiles from all over the world so you will always have something new to look forward to. Aside from oysters, the menu showcases lobsters, crabs, calamari and fish as well as other nonseafood delights and desserts. Special seafood platters featuring the freshest catch are also available during weekend brunch.
To complement the seafood, Waterfront Bar also offers an extensive selection of boutique champagnes as well as classic cocktails, wines, beers and spirits.
