Eggslut (#01-12, Scotts Square) turns one, and it's celebrating with two limited items.
The Rhubarb’s Sandwich - created by chef Paul Longworth from Michelin-starred Rhubarb Le Restaurant - is only available on Sep 4, and in limited quantities.
It is his take on the Fairfax sandwich, with a base of soft scrambled eggs, a layer of beetroot-cured salmon trout, topped with pickled red onion, fresh arugula, and a gently spiced horseradish sauce.
He is also offering the Popcorn Mousse Slut, with slow-cooked egg atop an earthy carrot pulp, topped with smoky chorizo bits and popcorn mousse.
From Sep 9 to Oct 31, The Avocado & Prawn Sandwich and the Panna Cotta Slut will be available.
The former is grilled tiger prawns in a garlic chili lime glaze, paired with an over-medium egg, slices of avocado, cheddar cheese, and sweet chili mayo in the classic brioche bun. The latter looks like a coddled egg, with a mango passionfruit sphere on a bed of vanilla and hazelnut panna cotta.
Chef Nancy Silverton’s 120-seat Cal-Italian restaurant Osteria Mozza at Hilton Singapore Orchard is now serving a menu of pizzas for lunch only.
The menu features Pizzeria Mozza’s most famous pizzas created with a new dough recipe now used in all Mozza restaurants.
