When the greats of the culinary world descend upon Singapore for the S. Pellegrino Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants forum, it’s a safe bet a few of them will venture out for dinner at a certain Chinatown shophouse. Chef André Chiang’s namesake Restaurant André on Bukit Pasoh Road opened in 2010 and has already been the recipient of multiple Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant honors, most recently ranking the venue 5th in the region for dining. Chiang will team up with visiting chef Joan Roca i Fontané, a three Michelin star and top ranked chef in the World’s Best Restaurants 2013, for an intimate dinner to benefit the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Roca i Fontané hails from Girona, Spain where he serves as head chef of El Celler de Can Roca. On February 21, Chiang’s famed Octaphilosophy will fuse with the flavors of Catalan for “The Best”—an eight-course degustation menu inspired by Mediterranean terroir. The dinner start from US$785 exclusive of wine pairing, but inclusive of the bragging rights that you tasted the collaboration of these two culinary superstars.
