Yes, our country’s famous for all things hawker. And we LOVE our local food.
Do you know that there’s another country out there who sets the bar high for their cuisine?

Fall in love with the vitello tonnato – it’s made out of organic veal and served with arugula, black truffle and a tuna espuma sauce.
Polish your meal off with the te’nero e ciliegia. This is not your usual take on chocolate mousse, as it’s been infused with Earl Grey tea. The dessert is paired with a cherry Morello sorbet and a pistachio crust.
