SPIRAL REOPENS ITS DOORS
After a two-month hiatus, Spiral made a much-anticipated return as it reopened its doors in May earlier this year. Asia Pacific’s interactive gastronomic destination reacquaints epicures to its 21 dining ateliers and international specialties prepared à la minute by expert culinary artisans.
Opening the gastronomic journey, the Asian section presents delicacies that highlight the contemporary food cultures of Filipino, Thai, Korean, Chinese, Singaporean, and Vietnamese cuisines, reflecting the resurgence of its regional specialties. Over at the North Indian section, signature dishes are enhanced with new additions to the line-up including a chaat corner and live roti station. The fiery grills of the churrasco station are also back at work with crowd-favourite premium meats and sausages, while the quintessential French Stove presents an elevated menu on weekends with delightful indulgences like caviar, pasta and risotto finished on a cheese wheel alongside a newly-added crudo bar.
Crossing over to L’Epicerie you will see all-time favourites including creamy raclette, cheese and charcuterie platter du jour curated from the metro’s widest fromage selection.
The Japanese atelier offers savoury items that take diners to the Land of the Rising Sun with staples like donburi, nabemono, and men ya. Leading up to a sweet ending, the Patisserie, Boulangerie, and Chocolaterie are also revamped with a refreshed take on local ingredients, seasonal items, and dynamic dessert trends.
