Dining for a good cause – L’Espresso’s signature English afternoon tea buffet

La Brasserie’s La Cuisine Naturelle

Here’s another option for Singapore foodies – more food. Malaysian chef Kim Hock, owner of Penang’s Au Jardin fine-dining restaurant, is taking over the kitchen at La Brasserie in Fullerton Bay Hotel this weekend to present a taste of his own restaurant’s cuisine.

Diners can choose between two-, three-, and four-course meals, with starters such as the savoury Angus Beef Tartare, and mains like an Iberian Pork Jowl. End your meal on a sweet note with desserts like the La Foret Noire au Jardin chocolate mousse, made with Malaysia’s Seniman Batang Kali cocoa.
