Formula 1 Grand Prix: A 2018 food guide for all your gastronomic needs
You're standing amidst the crowds, sweating like a maniac and had just about enough contracting excess body heat from random strangers. The roaring engines from the nearby pits are already starting to get on your last nerve, although not any louder than your rumbling stomach. Turns out, watching The Killers live didn't sate your appetite after all.
Where to hunt for a hearty bite at this year's Formula 1? Peruse the gastronomical highlights we're making room for this year.
Look for: Franceschetta 58
You don't need to travel too far to experience the genius of Massimo Bottura. Franceschetta 58 (the sister restaurant of three-Michelin-starred Osteria Francescana) will serve up some of their signatures. We're talking the Modena eatery's famous Emilia Burger, an anchovy pasta dish inspired by the South, and a Venetian salt cod masterpiece.
Look for: Five Light Pavilion
Our city's very own Blue Lotus Chinese Grill House teams up with Albert Tse's China Blue restaurant in Tokyo to serve up tantalising creations at Five Light Pavilion. Dig into offerings like green lip mussels with garlic, angus beef brisket noodles, and pickled chilli atlantic octopus with a special tofu barley risotto.
A SPECIAL MASH-UP
Look for: Le Charlemagne
Those up for a night of indulgence, allow one-Michelin restaurant Le Charlemagne to whip up something you've probably never had before. Known for marrying Asian and Burundian flavours, acclaimed chef Laurent Peugeot might just be able to alter your misconceptions about fusion food.
LOCO FOR LOCAL
Where: Makan Boulevard
When the heart wants what it wants — whether it being a bowl of mee siam, satay sticks and Indian tandoori, the alfresco space will always be here to serve up a line-up of food for the soul. Let's hope the night gets cooler then.
Look for: Saga
His online moniker, @andybowdy, might strike a familiar chord in dessert fanatics. The Australian pastry chef will be displaying his legendary creations at a 10-metre long dessert bar. With Bowden, you either go big or go home. We're definitely down for the former.
