TATLER TIPS

While the ba­sics hit the spot, the Pig­pen X Cu­ra­tor cock­tails, are par­tic­u­larly spec­tac­u­lar. ( Yes, Cu­ra­tor). Brace up with a plate of the beef shank, mush­room, and bone mar­row. Curb the rich fac­tor with the tomato and salted egg salad, chef Car­los Gar­cia’s health­ier al­beit tasty ver­sion with black rice, tofu, and sesame dress­ing. Grilled whole to flaky, fall-apart per­fec­tion is the salt-crusted sea bass (to share) with its grat­i­fy­ingly sub­tle flavours of cilantro, cala­mansi, fish sauce, chill­ies, and gar­lic. For dessert, it’s a tan­ta­lis­ing toss up between the sin­ful dulce de leche pra­line and the unique black rice with mango— a twist on Thai­land’s mango with sticky rice.
