Beat the home quarantine blues with gourmet takeaway menus
From one-Michelin-starred Vianney Massot Restaurant, smoking meats from Burnt Ends to modern Peranakan eats; eating at home will never be the same.
Staying at home and social distancing during this Covid-19 situation doesn’t mean you have to now cook dinner every single night and forgo restaurant or bistro meals completely.
In fact, more and more F&B places are offering convenient takeaway options and deals to help you dine in the safety of home. So fret not, you will still be able to eat like a king with these amazing takeaway options – Michelin-starred options included.
Got a craving for Buah Keluak Fried Rice or any of Candlenut’s comforting Peranakan dishes? The MICHELIN-starred establishment is offering a new takeaway service for both lunch and dinner. The menu is pretty extensive, ranging from starters like Wing Bean Salad and Kueh Pie Tee to curries, braises and stir-fried dishes. Get your hands also on chef-owner Malcolm Lee’s famed Kueh Salat, available whole (800g) for $80. 17A Dempsey Road. Tel: 8121 0176
Vianney Massot Restaurant
The French fine dining restaurant’s L’Agneau de lait takeaway set ($200++, for 4-5 pax) features milk-fed lamb from Pyrenees, pan-seared then slow-roasted to juicy perfection and served on a bed of fragrant pilaf rice.
