2am: dessertbar’s Strawberry Sakura High Tea

Fresh hanami sakura flowers specially flown in from Nagoya, Japan is the highlight of 2am: dessertbar’s new Strawberry Sakura high tea. Available from March 6 onwards, the high tea is a celebration of springtime with sweet treats like strawberry yuzu opera cake, strawberry caprese with Roku gin, compressed Korean strawberries with sweet milk, as well as strawberry sakura and sakura caramel chocolate bonbons. Fun textures and flavours abound with strawberry-themed kakigori, tarts, michis, daifuku, and even gyozas. Guests can complete their tea experience with either coffee or tea.

Cure X Man Man

Can’t decide what to order on GrabFood? Check out the new four-hands collaboration between two unlikely partners—CURE, a specialist in “Nua” Irish cuisine and Man Man, which serves unagi from Aichi Prefecture in Japan. The latter was first awarded the MICHELIN Bib Gourmand in 2017. Available for preorder from now until February 20 and for delivery between February 22 and 23 during lunch only, the meals feed two generously. Great for a quick lunch date in the comfort of home, the three-course menu comes with an appetiser of Silverhill Farm Duck Takoyaki served with unagi glaze and katsuobushi, followed by a main course of BBQ unagi and Irish corned beef porridge. For dessert, there’s the light yet flavourful Avonmore matcha Cheesecake with Irish oats and shiso.
