Restaurant Nouri has unveiled a new face in celebration of its fifth anniversary. The Michelin-starred establishment has been dazzling us with innovative explorations of what food can be, and this new menu is no different.

Available for a six-course lunch ($228++) and nine-course dinner ($328), enjoy the humble prawn two ways with The Raw and The Cooked - think carabinero crudo and spiced prawn floss - and revel in the decadence of A5 Yamaguchi wagyu ribeye in Boeuf à la Presse.

Wine and sake pairings start from $90++ and $105++ respectively.

Restaurant Nouri is located at 72 Amoy St, Singapore 069891, p. +65 9230 2477. Open Wed-Thu 6pm-9.30pm, Fri-Sun 12pm-2.30pm, 6pm-9.30pm. Closed Mon-Tue.

A twist on Mid-Autumn traditions


Want to celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival but not a fan of mooncakes?

Paul Singapore's new moon tarts are just what you need. At S$40 ($50 for orders after Aug 20), each box sees eight french entremet in buttery sable tart shells.

Go "Nuts" Over Coconuts with their luxurious chestnut coconut mousse and dig into Asian flavours of black tea and yuzu in Fit To The Tea. Chocolate lovers won't go wrong with Chocolate Caramel Fantasy, where a sensational lava explosion awaits.

Paul's moon tarts are available for pre-order online with free delivery with a minimum spend of $120 (except for restricted postal codes). Self-collection is available at selected outlets.

Don't miss the cheeky gin-based Deflowered with banana flower and pandan-infused Campari or Hit the Road Jack, a meeting of cognac, champagne, jackfruit, and coconut vinegar. With just one night to experience Paris, there's no reason to say no. All cocktails are priced at $24++.
