After a tumultuous 2020, the F&B scene showed signs of recovering, as evinced by the number of restaurants that opened their doors this year. Despite the ever-changing dine-in restrictions, these chefs continued to feed our appetite for delicious foods spanning various cuisines. Here are our favourite meals in 2021.
Pollen at Flower Dome has been rebranded to Marguerite. Chef-owner Michael Wilson presents his own brand of ‘contemporary cuisine’, where his creations are a “culmination of our life experiences, working and eating across the globe”.
His seven-course tasting menu is a celebration of craft, provenance and produce, as you will taste in the likes of heirloom carrot and Scottish langoustine. The aforementioned dish presents the humble vegetable in various ways—slow-cooked and coated with carrot pulp and muscovado sugar, pickled and paired with crisp shards of yeast and almonds; and made into a sauce using juiced sand carrots and Valencia oranges.
