Justin Quek’s new concepts, plus what’s on at FHA and WGS
Since Sky on 57 and Flight Bar & Lounge shuttered their doors last June, diners and industry watchers have been anticipating Justin Quek’s next move. As it turns out, the Singaporean toque will still maintain a presence at Marina Bay Sands, albeit in two different guises: Justin – Flavours of Asia (slated to open this month) and Chinoiserie (opening in May).
At the former, fans can look forward to Quek’s take on local breakfast fare such as mee siam and prawn noodle soup to teatime treats like gula Java ice cream on brioche bread. Tuck into luxe dinner plates such as hamachi yu sheng with ginger flower dressing, wok-fried lobster Hokkien mee, and Quek’s famous foie gras xiao long bao. The space is also a late-night dining spot – it opens till 2am. Chinoiserie, on the other hand, presents a more refined take on Asian food, fusing Quek’s haute French cuisine foundation with the flavours of the continent. #01-83 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, 2 Bayfront Avenue.
