On the look out for restaurant promotions? We’ve picked out a few for the month of June.
1. Menya Musashi for your ramen fix
This June, enjoy your favourite ramen with a twist at Menya Musashi. The restaurant, which is known for its delicious, creative twists to traditional ramen in its hometown of Tokyo, is partnering with popular Japanese brand ITO EN to bring you slurpworthy matcha latte ramen.
Available in both soup and dry versions ($15.90 for a la carte and $18.90 for set) from now till end of June, the dish features matcha in the springy ramen noodles, in the milky savoury pork bone broth studded with briny baby clams and showered with chopped spring onions, and some delectable and moreish matcha-laced cream on the side. We highly recommend the dry version, where you can tip the cream over the noodles, give it a good stir, and slurp up the bitter-sweet cream-coated ramen. This is pleasantly similar to a cream-based pasta dish. According to head chef Tsutomu Koga, the cream is a rift on the popular kombu matcha pairing, bolstered with whipping cream.
Another inspired creation at Menya Musashi is the chawanmushi ramen ($14.90)—ramen noodles steamed in a savoury egg custard and dotted with pork and crabstick. Oishii!

2. Carousel at Royal Plaza on Scotts for a taste of Thailand
Until 24 June, enjoy the best of Thai at Carousel buffet restaurant at Royal Plaza on Scotts. A culinary team from luxury hotel The Dhara Dhevi, Chiang Mai, led by head chef Chanin Jakkased will be taking over the dinner buffet during this time.
Expect favourites like spicy soft shell crab salad with green mango and mint leaves; red curry with roasted duck and lychee; and rice dumplings in coconut soup. Priced at $83 and $49 for adults and children respectively.
Lobby Level, Royal Plaza on Scotts, 25 Scotts Road. Tel: 6589 7799
3. Spice Brasserie for endless crab feasts
Crab fiends will love this: Spice Brasserie at Parkroyal on Kitchener Road is having an ‘Endless Crabs Party’ dinner buffet promotion ($79 for adults; $35 for children) until the end of July. You can enjoy 12 styles of crab including wok-fried crab in Wu Jia Pi wine, stir-fried crab with Asian spices, and salted egg crab with curry leaves.
Our favourite was executive chef Low Hoe Kiat’s signature bee hoon crab, which was full of flavour and ‘wok hei’.
Lobby level, Parkroyal on Kitchener Road, 181 Kitchener Road. Tel: 6428 3000
4. Nude Seafood for fresh food
This contemporary European restaurant with strong Asian influences began with a mission to put up (nu)tritious, (de)licious seafood, hence its name, Nude Seafood. These days, the name signifies its commitment to using fresh ingredients which they cook “simply, transparently, nude”.
Apart from its cafeteria-style lunch menu built around one-dish meals, it has upped its game with a four-course communal dining dinner menu ($49 per person). Think generously portioned mains like barramundi with duck sausage, eggplant, tempura French beans and asparagus ($25), and flower grouper in a smoked mushroom duck broth ($24).
#01-02 MBFC Tower 3, 12 Marina Boulevard. Tel: 6443 1167
