DAMN YOU SINGAPORE
Aperitif: Yuzu umeshu
This is an umeshu on the rocks that includes the juice of the yuzu fruit, which makes it more sour and have a dash of bitterness. Quite refreshing actually.
This is a simple but great tasting meal to make. Not really much prep work to be done.
First we start by slicing inch-thick slices of ciabatta bread.
Great omakase dinner at Nagomi, which is a small and hidden Japanese eatery at Cuppage Plaza. The chef Nada Satoru used to have a normal menu but he changed it into an omakase menu based on the fresh and seasonal ingredients from Japan.
The place is dimly lit and you have to remove your shoes when you enter. There aren’t many seats, just a counter table of about 8 seats and about 4 tables. The ambiance is definitely cozy and it feels very traditional.
There is this little Italian place called Cugini located at 87 Club Street which was highly recommended for its pasta so I decided to go and give it a try.
It was definitely the right choice because the pasta was amazing. Not surprised since it was made by 2 Italians called Mauro and Gerri.
For my birthday I went to have my dinner at the BLU which is located on the 24th floor of the Shangri-la Hotel. They gave me a table with a pretty good view!
The set which I had selected was the special “Experience” degustation menu. This was a 6 course menu that was decided by the chef. In this case, the chef was Kevin Cherkas who was nice enough to come out and talk to us at the table about our likes and dislikes.
From there he would customize a personal menu just for you, with some dishes from the existing a la carte menu and some of his own new creations not on the menu yet.
Today is the last day of Oktoberfest, a sixteen day festival to celebrate the marriage of Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. The first Oktoberfest was held in 1810, and was so awesome that it has been held every year since, except wasnt held in 1811 because Napoleon was a douchebag.
To celebrate how amazing this wedding was, the Germans get together every year, throw a massive party, drink lots of beer and eat lots of meat. Pretty much just an awesome time all around.
So to celebrate my German ancestry and my love of beer, I have decided to do a beer review of Warsteiner Dunkel.
