Strait up

Epicure - - EPICURE NEWS -

Get ready for one of the most ex­cit­ing F&B open­ings this year: Straits Clan. Chefs Jeremy Nguee and David Thien head up the Clan Café and Bar, and Din­ing Room re­spec­tively. At the for­mer, a laid­back salon with arm­chairs to sink into, Nguee’s in­ven­tive ap­proach to Asian fare has pro­duced in­trigu­ing dishes such as Kaki­age with Gen­maicha Broth as well as Grilled An­gus Rib­eye with car­rot lo­tus kin­pira and Asian mushrooms on a bed of mixed grains. The Din­ing Room is, on the other hand, a more el­e­gant space where Thien im­presses with un­fussy, com­fort­ing clas­sics like Yel­lowfin Tuna Tartare with dashi jelly and av­o­cado, and Stingray Me­u­nière with tomato sam­bal.

Stroll up to the sec­ond-floor The Bar to sip cock­tails and tuck into lo­cal hawker de­lights such as turmeric-sea­soned Mak­cik Chicken and Lob­ster Pie Tee. Con­nois­seurs will ap­pre­ci­ate the pri­vate Tast­ing Room, where mem­bers can en­joy the club’s col­lec­tion of se­lect spir­its and wines, and even take part in mas­ter­classes and work­shops. 31 Bukit Pa­soh Road.
