Food and Travel (Singapore) - - Drink -

Tucked away on the sec­ond floor of Or­chard Shop­ping Cen­tre is, KUVO, a multi-con­cept restau­rant and bar that serves lunches and af­ter­noon tea in the day and trans­forms into an “in­ti­mate sanc­tu­ary” at night. And this is where it gets ex­cit­ing. Yu­taka Nakashima, the helms­man at the bar, will shake up (or stir) a be­spoke cock­tail (S$21) at your re­quest. Ex­pect a drink that is cre­ative, bold and per­haps quirky.

Also avail­able, are be­spoke cock­tails that have been cre­ated as a pair­ing to cer­tain dishes of­fered on the menu. Tales of Shu (S$21), com­pris­ing freshly pre­pared gen­mai tea, saké, Lil­let Blanc, and fresh or­ange peel, is made to com­ple­ment the heav­ier tex­tures and flavours of spiced Kurobuta Yakiniku Don­buri (S$16). Green Ice­land (S$21) – a blend of Ja­panese umeshu and Ital­ian An­tica Fratta sparkling wine – is a cock­tail that draws par­al­lels with the ‘East­meets-West’ el­e­ments of the Wagyu & Camem­bert Slid­ers (S$17). Most in­trigu­ing is Yu­taka’s beer be­spoke cock­tail – Brewski Yen (S$21) – that is a com­bi­na­tion of Kirin beer, a tang of Suze, le­mon, and gin­ger ale. And if you don’t have any feels for a cock­tail, there’s plenty of scotch, Ja­panese whiskeys, and wine to suit your ev­ery mood.
