Where to find tapas, cocktails, and killer views
Restaurants that attempt to serve up too many cuisines at once often lose the plot. But for Me@OUE, where diners can choose to have Japanese, Chinese, and French cuisine in one sitting, this triple offering forms a key ingredient to the restaurant's recipe for success. It's an approach that plays out especially well when the sun sets and cocktail hour rolls around. Here, bar snacks aren't just a cursory menu-filler of truffle fries and greasy sliders. Instead, you'll find such elegant bites as slivers of jamón ibérico served with toast, alongside moreish plates of wok-fried black pepper beef and pristine rolls of California maki stuffed with crab. Served in tapas portions, these delicious bites are perfect for sharing and made even better when enjoyed against a stunning backdrop of Singapore's Central Business District.
If you're looking to venture beyond lychee martinis, you'll find a handsome list of cocktails to choose from. Whisky lovers can opt for the Old Embury, a punchy mix of Scotch whisky shaken with Apple Jack, Carpano Blanco, and a dash of Angostura Bitters. A lighter, brighter libation comes in the form of the Old Tom, a gin-based cocktail shaken with Thym liqueur, passionfruit, and mint leaves. For a burst of the tropics in a glass, go with Looking Sharp, which melds gin with raspberries and peaches.
Enjoy tapas and cocktails at Me@OUE from Mondays to Saturdays, 6pm onwards. OUE Bayfront Rooftop. 50 Collyer Quay. Tel: 6634 4555
