Gobo Upstairs Lounge & Grill
Gobo Upstairs Lounge &Grill introduces a new dinner menu by Chef Fun Keng Mun, a former Junior Sous Chef who rose through the ranks and now helms its kitchen. The new menu features a range of dishes that showcases Chef Fun’s skill on the grill, while delivering a refined touch to popular favourites. Standout starters include a light but flavourful honey beetroot salad, a rich lobster bisque, and crispy prawns served with durian mayonnaise (trust us, the combination works). The mains comprise a meaty selection of Australian Black Angus beef and Australian Wagyu cuts that are perfectly seasoned and grilled just the way you want it. If it’s variety you crave, order the Crispy and Tender mix platter of sirloin steak, crispy soft-shell crab, fondant potatoes and glazed asparagus, while those dining in a group can order the 1.5kg grilled Tomahawk served with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.

enfin by James Won
Treat yourself to a fine lunch at enfin by James Won, which introduced a seafood-focused three-course degustation menu that allows diners to experience some of Chef James’s best dishes at reasonable prices. For entrées, try the Fisherman’s stew pot made with tuak – think of it as a more mellow bouillabaisse, which is traditionally made with white wine – or enfin’s elevated take on the prawn cocktail salad with heirloom tomatoes, prawns and beetroot. The mains include a selection of seafood like North Sea white cod, Norwegian salmon, lobster, king crab and yabbies that can be pan seared, poached, steamed, fried in batter or char grilled. Round off your meal with gelato or a selection of cakes before heading back to the office.
