Super sweet treats that will have you bouncing off the walls with delight.
East meets West
in eclectic fashion
at Ding Dong
HOT IN HERE
Its name might not say much, but Ding Dong is evolving into quite the modern Southeast Asian restaurant. “Eclectic Oriental” best sums up its new rainbow-bright interiors, reflected in its menu of Asianinspired culinary creations that are far from predictable.
Think little flavour bombs of Hamachi sashimi wrapped in betel leaf, green mango and chilli relish; and pan-fried foie gras with kimchi, served on freshly toasted banana bread—you get warm and sweet, creamy and savoury, and pickled and spicy all in one sumptuous bite.
For bigger appetites, the ocean trout is cured overnight then grilled over charcoal for better and pickled and spicy all in one sumptuous the ocean trout is cured overnight then grill depth of flavour; best paired with an Um interpretation of the Bloody depth of flavour; best paired with an Umami, Ding Dong’s interpretation of the Bloody Mary with vodka, tomato, tam chilli, on tomato, tamarind, Sichuan pepper, chilli, onion and salt.

Yuzu tarte from Patisserie Platine
Anyone who has dined at Waku Ghin will tell you that its 10-course omakase experience could change your life, and appreciation for Japanese gastronomy, forever.
The good news? Dessert ﬁends can now tuck into 16 types of intricate pastries and petit cakes by Waku Ghin’s chefs in a more walletfriendly environment—Patisserie Platine at RISE Lounge in the Marina Bay Sands Hotel.
If you have to pick just one, the Yuzu Tarte, with a crisp crust ﬁlled with olive oil sponge, smooth yuzu-infused curd, sweet meringue and candied yuzu, is to die for.
Dining in an urban jungle doesn’t get better than at Artemis, the city’s only contemporary Mediterranean dining spot that’s nestled between the clouds and a 15,000sqft Sky Forest on the 40th ﬂoor of eco-skyscraper, CapitaGreen.
Best known for wood-ﬁred meat and seafood, and organic vegetable dishes that arrive elegantly plated at the table, its dessert menu is highly recommended: Mouthfuls of the warm Apricot and Lavender Souffle drizzled with walnut crème anglaise make for an explosion of delicate, aromatic ﬂavours; while the Chocolate Praline bursts with bitter orange jam and chocolate mousse goodness, and is served with olive oil ice cream for some green, fruity relief.
