From classic steakhouses to contemporary restaurants, there are plenty of places to get your Australian food fix. Here’s our roundup of the top spots to try now. Osia Steak and Seafood Grill
Who’s cooking: Singaporean Chef de Cuisine Douglas Tay and his team, under the eye of celebrity Chef Scott Webster. Australian-born Scott’s repertoire spans 40 years, and includes notable events such as feeding an entire Olympic village in Calgary, Canada, plus stints at The Savoy in London and in glitzy Beverly Hills. Osia was recently awarded a Michelin star in the inaugural Michelin Guide Singapore 2016.
What’s cooking: With an emphasis on sharing and seasonal produce, Osia presents contemporary Australian cuisine, using mainly ingredients sourced from Australia and the Pacific Rim. The Sharing Set Menu ($108 per person) hits all the right spots, opening with deep fried mud crab cakes and tender, char-grilled Fremantle octopus that tastes fresh off the barbie. Then comes a grill platter that includes items from more far-flung shores: a trio of perfectly cooked Norwegian Lerøy fjord trout fillet, tender Fermin Ibérico bellota chuletero pork rack and then back to Aussie shores with a Murray Bridge signature beef hanger steak. Having gone almost carb-free so far, we have just enough room for the hot chocolate soup with black pepper ice cream – a curiously moreish concoction!
Osia offers other set dinner menu options, too, as well as an à la carte menu, a set lunch menu and a Sunday brunch.
