Tippling Club has been on the cutting edge of modern gastronomy in Singapore and its food continues to astound and delight diners, including our very own Makan Kaki Aun Koh. Helming this exciting, innovative restaurant is this week’s studio guest chef/ owner Ryan Clift, who is representing Singapore this very weekend at the Margaret River Gourmet Escape, creating a dinner at gorgeous winery Vasse Felix.
I had to ask, when Chef Ryan’s not jetting about, what and where he likes to eat in Singapore. Here’s what he had to say…
His current favourites include Burnt Ends just off Keong Saik Street for Modern Australian Barbeque. Chef David Pynt is a friend and an amazing cook and the flavours you get at his restaurant from his oven and charcoal are incredible. He always uses what’s in season and the menu changes regularly. So with great produce and great charcoal, your dining experience is always something pretty special. It’s the kind of place you go and just let Chef David take care of you and you can go nuts getting full on all the delicious morsels he puts in front of you. For more on Burnt Ends, check this out!
There’s also FOC on Hong Kong Street, which in Chef Ryan’s opinion, gives us the best representation of Spanish tapas in Singapore, they’ve managed to capture a very authentic Catalan vibe and there are two distinct menus you can choose from – a classic selection of tapas or a more avant garde, modern take on tapas.
