@ home with Aries (Private Dining)
Dinner tonight was at this old conservation shophouse in the Jalan Besar area. Unusual address made more interesting when I was told that it only had 1 table and we were the only guests.
Welcome to Singapore’s culinary underground – a small but growing number of self-taught chefs who are offering to cook in a private dining setup. Not a new concept in places like Cuba and Hong Kong, but very much in its infancy here.
We started with a light salad accompanied by a gorgeous basket of freshly baked bread and breadsticks. This was followed by a dish of angel hair pasta with fresh pesto with a sprinkling of sharp mimolette cheese. The combination was just superb. The sharpness of the cheese upped the ante on the dish.
