Ex­ec­u­tive chef Alvin Leong of Baba Chews Bar and Eatery ups the ante for Na­tional Day with a de­lec­ta­ble seafood feast that show­cases oceanic gems with lo­cal flavours. For the month of Au­gust, the restau­rant has launched a spe­cial menu with high­lights such as Sri Lankan Crab in salted egg yolk ($8/100g); brightly-hued Herbal Drunken Tiger Prawns boiled in Leong’s sig­na­ture Chi­nese herbal broth ($25/300g); whole Nonya-style Baked Aus­tralian Lob­ster with Nonya sabayon ($48/450g); and our favourite, the creamy Soon Hock Clay­pot Laksa fea­tur­ing poached mar­ble goby with Korean wheat noo­dles ($52/600g).
