Masterchef Asia 2015 win­ner Woo Wai Leong has launched his maiden restau­rant ven­ture, Restau­rant Ibid, in a beau­ti­fully re­stored shop­house. Ibid, an ab­bre­vi­ated Latin word mean­ing ‘from the same source’, is an apt de­scrip­tion of Woo’s menu that re­flects Sin­ga­porean or rather, ‘Nanyang-style, Con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese’ cui­sine, and the search for one’s roots. Savour a beau­ti­ful sous­vide Tea Egg steeped in a broth made from man­darin peel and pu-erh tea; a suc­cu­lent Short Rib that goes ex­cel­lently with pick­led black fun­gus, Chi­nese pears and a jus made of chicken stock and An­gel­ica root; and home­made Soy Milk Ice Cream ac­com­pa­nied by al­mond es­puma, sesame cake and Sarawak pep­per. While lunch ser­vice is not avail­able yet, din­ner fea­tures a choice of four-, six- or eight-course menus ($78/$88/$118). 18 North Canal Road. Tel: 9151 8698
