9 things to eat, see and do this weekend (Aug 21-23)

To eat

1. Indulge in special cocktails and burgers 


Hip casual diner, Potato Head Folk is bringing in iconic Japanese streetwear fashion label, Neighborhood, for a month-long pop up. To mark the occasion, there’ll be two specially concocted gin-based cocktails affectionately called ‘Neighbourhood shake’ and ‘Barrio Cooler’. But what we’re more excited about is the ‘Neighborhood burger’ — a Mexican-themed burger consisting of a beef patty, topped with triple jalapeño cheese, deconstructed tomato salsa, pickled chili, and a mole mayonnaise, all sandwiched between a delicious cornmeal brioche bun.

2. Taste the cuisine of world-renowned chefs


When famous chefs like Luke Burgess from Tasmania, Australia jet sets into town to collaborate with local chefs, Rene Knudsen from Opus at Hilton Singapore and Diego Jacquet of BoCHINche; foodies have all the reasons to celebrate. You can expect a six-course menu at the two restaurants, including delectable eats like the 36 Hours Slow Cooked Pork Belly with celeriac, apple, sage salad and chorizo as well as Darling’s Downs Wagyu Rump Cap with black garlic, fermented chinese mustard, creamed lettuce hearts.

Don’t say we didn’t share this with you! The newly-opened Japanese restaurant, Cho Omakase, offers omakase sets starting at a very affordable $50 and going up to $120. With a casual vibe, the 30-seater restaurant offers a dining experience that includes sashimi, sushi, and mains like Hida wagyu, stewed pork belly, Alaskan king crab and oysters. We hear the menu offerings rotate often, so keep a look out on their Facebook page.
