TIPPLING CLUB | Where to eat: Tanjong Pagar is getting some serious clean-up, and Tippling Club has plenty to do with it. The move-in of this former Dempsey stalwart signals the herding in of a new crowd – those who will appreciate the slick, upmarket lines of this verdant-coloured bar and restaurant; those who will pay for quality cocktails and tasting menus that blows the traditional-centred mind. The concept has not changed: rules-subverting food (molecular gastronomy, mostly) in a modern space. Some of the original touches remain, like the jelly pillows the spoons rest on and the hanging bar, though chef-owner Ryan Clift has added more, including artisanal chandeliers. What to eat: Everything the eight-course classic tasting menu ($160++; $260++ with wine pairing) serves up. It's an experience – from the pillow-shaped "omelette" with smoked eel and caviar; the venison (shot from helicopters to ensure the deer does not tense up and produce sour-tasting acids) with stinging nettle puree, braised salsify, onion rings and burnt butter jus; to the cheesecake in the form of candy. You get more of a choice with the cocktails – some of the signatures have been ported over, as well as an entire page of eight new drinks. The new Jolly Green Giant (plymouth gin, luxardo maraschino, pea puree, citrus and agave, $18) was a little raw for us (pea-haters, stay away), but the Low Profile Fashion Choices (Tennesse whiskey, salt caramel, chocolate and Earl Grey, $18) sounds like it'd be a good nightcap.
