NileGuide Expert tip:
Save room for the Chocolate and Pistachio Souffle!
The Tippling Club's Ryan Clift, famous for his innovative molecular gastronomy cuisine has chosen the up and coming Tiong Bahru area of Singapore for his latest venture - Open Door Policy. This long narrow open-plan restaurant with its show kitchen is creating a buzz in the city for its modern bistro fare and industrial-chic setting. Although created by Clift, the food is mercifully void of test tubes and foam and instead promises hearty offerings such as Confit Duck Leg with puy lentils, sage and smoked bacon, and Pork Belly with parsnip puree, braised quinoa and celery. Desserts such as the Chocolate and Pistachio Souffle with crème anglaise and the White Chocolate Mousse with raspberry headache are sure to be crowd pleasers. The short wine list focuses on boutique wines from around the world, many exclusive to ODP, while the bar offers a list of classic cocktails and specialty coffees.
