Travel & Taste: Singapore Restaurant Week 2015 in NYC @SingaporeUSA @stb_sg
Festivities kicked off in Beijing and London earlier in the year, and have now landed in NYC. Meander through Madison Square Park, which has been transformed into a colorful corner of Singapore, filled with unique art and sculptures from Singapore: Inside Out , along with Singaporean storytelling, live music, DJ sessions and audiovisual showcases. SG50’s aromatic highlight is Singapore Restaurant Week (through Sept. 27), where participating restaurants are showcasing Singaporean delicacies. Try the frothy Onde Onde Shake, flavored with sweet rice dumplings, at Shake Shack; coconut curry laksa at Andaz 5th Avenue; and sizzling black-pepper soft shell crab at Laut. One of the festival’s most popular pours? The Singapore Sling, naturally. Many bars and restaurants, including Gotham Bar and Grill and Market Table, are serving this potent gin-fueled cocktail. Cheers!
