SAVOUR: L’ESPRESSO, PUBLICO, THE OLD MAN

Each week, we shortlist the best spots in a city to satisfy your food and drink cravings. With Singapore easing into phase two of the circuit breaker, restaurants and bars have been rolling out new menus to attract diners. Here are three to try.

English afternoon with the Legacy Blend 120 tea.

L’Espresso at Goodwood Park Hotel

Catch up with your loved ones at Goodwood Park Hotel’s L’Espresso, now serving a classic English afternoon tea that pays homage to the hotel’s 120 years of rich history.

Available for dine-in from now until August 10, the menu features a repertoire of sweet and savoury treats including the ever-popular scones—best enjoyed with Devonshire clotted cream and strawberry jam; Irish beef and Guinness stew; mini shepherd’s pie, and sticky toffee pudding. Then, sip on the Legacy Blend 120, a commemorative black tea with a hint of ciutrusy bergamot, to seal the afternoon tea tradition.

Torrents of Spring.

The Old Man Singapore

Ranking number 22 on Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2020 list, The Old Man Singapore looks set to jazz things up with its “v2” menu, which now features new tipple like an old-fashioned amber lager created together with The 1925 Brewing Co.

Building upon the debut menu, which is inspired by novelist Ernest Hemmingway’s favourite libations, the new line-up includes literary-sounding cocktails like Torrents of Spring and For Whom the Bell Tolls. The former packs a serious punch with glutinous rice cooked mezcal, grain Wild Turkey whiskey, amaro nonino, Campari, pom-beet shrub and charcoal. Easy on the palette, the latter comprises cocoa nibs sous-vide batavia arrack, sour strawberry, rotovap burnt butter Appleton rum and avocado burst. For those who prefer drinking at home, delivery and takeaway are available as well.
