The Epicurean Market is back, and it looks better than before. There’s a farmers’ market featuring Croatian black truffle and a winning sheep’s cheese, and you have all your favourite celebrity restaurants huddled under one roof. Get ready to eat. Here are five dishes we believe are worth the calories.
Waku Ghin’s Poached Botan Shrimp with Egg and Caviar (pictured above)
Once in a while, it’s nice to treat yourself, like Waku Ghin and caviar. And this time, without having to wear your fancy pants. It’s a win-win.
The Bird Southern Table & Bar’s Crispy Chicken and Mama’s Biscuits
The Bird has landed. As John Kunkel’s first restaurant opening outside the United States, The Bird is everything if you’re one to appreciate fried chicken and all things Southern. The chicken, brined for an exact 27 hours, pairs perfectly with classic buttermilk biscuits. We loved it, even though we can never really get used to the idea of “biscuits”.
Spago’s Sweet Corn Agnolotti
Agnolotti, meaning “priests’ caps”, are stuffed with the sweetest corn in season and coupled with heavy cream and cheese. It’s Wolfgang Puck’s signature pasta, typically topped with shaved truffle. The picture above doesn’t do the dish justice but you definitely do not want to miss this.
Pizzeria Mozza’s Margherita
It’s one of the best we have had. Not because of what goes on, but the killer crust. The toppings aren’t too difficult to tackle, but the bread? That’s hard. Unlike cooking, everything has to be made to a tee, right to the last knead. If you like pizza, you can’t go wrong with Pizzeria Mozza. After all, the co-owner is Nancy Silverton, who incidentally has her own episode on Chef’s Table for her undying love for bread.
db Bistro & Oyster Bar’s Lobster Roll
Lobster and a creamy sauce tucked into a butter brioche, done the Daniel Boulud way? We’d kill for one of that any day.
The Epicurean Market lasts through the weekend. More information and tickets over here
