9 things to eat, see and do this New Year weekend (Dec 31 – Jan 3)


Start off 2016 on a high note with these finds going on in Singapore!

To eat/drink

1. Bubbly cocktails


Revel in great company and clink your glasses at Oxwell & Co this New Year’s Eve. The gastropub has created two bubbly-centric cocktails, Countdown Club ($19) and Spiced Pear Fizz ($18) for you to end the year on a high.

The former is a refreshing tipple, with campari and grapefruit bitters while the latter comes with a touch of spice-infused honey.

2. Korean BBQ (with a unique cut of meat)

Can’t get enough of the K-wave? Seorae, a charcoal barbecue concept restaurant from Korea has landed in Singapore at Plaza Singapura.

Time to sit up and take notice because the restaurant is the first Korean BBQ here to offer the premium Galmaegisal — a pork skirt meat found between the ribs and the belly of the pig. It is a unique cut that forms only 250 grams of every full-grown pig.

3. Gourmet eats at a farmer’s market
