Singapore may not have four seasons, but gourmands will still be able to taste the beautiful produce available in autumn thanks to local chefs who continuously spotlight these in their ever-changing menus.
At Pasta Bar, the culinary team has come up with a thoughtfully-curated repertoire of contemporary dishes showcasing Italy’s seasonal produce such as fennel, pumpkin and truffles. The delectable menu comprises starters, their signature pastas and mains, as well as desserts made using classic Italian recipes, but, of course, tweaked to suit the modern palate. Here are three dishes to order:
1. Sashimi Grade Hamachi Tuna Crudo
There’s no better way to whet the appetite than with this Italian take on sashimi. Jam-packed with bright and citrusy flavours, chef Darren’s rendition features pristine slices of sashimi-grade Hamachi (yellowtail) that have been marinated in a mixture of fennel, salt, sugar and blood orange zest to accentuate the ocean-fresh flavours. The acerbic notes are pared down with a sprinkle of blood orange oil and black sea salt, making for a well-rounded appetiser that prepares the palate for the heartier dishes to come.
