Nutmeg and Clove shares its best and creative drinks and bites with a twist of luscious flavours. Residing in the heritage enclave of Ann Siang Hill it has taken its historical perspective with its cocktail offerings. Embracing the progresssion from colonial to modern metropolis, they incorporate familiar elements of the diverse cultural and culinary heritage to create a list of avant garde cocktails featuring classic reinterpreted with a Singaporean inflection.
A new favorite of mine. Impeccable decoration, an atmosphere of its own and pleasing staff.
And to spoil nothing, the cocktails are creations defying sense yet pleasing the senses.
The nasi lemak inspired cocktail is a particularly daring one (that comes with a cornucopia of ikan bilis) but many of their mixtures marry an Asian inspiration with more traditional recipes without ever departing of a certain elegance.
Must try and try again and again. Before midnight though, as they close early.
Housed in the premises of 1924-founded Cantonese clan, Ching Yoon Wooi Kwoon, the first floor space is now open to more than just the (descendants and) migrants from Ching Yuen (Qingyuan), Guangdong. On our preview visit to Nutmeg & Clove, we were treated to a chrysanthemum- and osmanthus-infused Tanqueray Ten gin with St Germain elderflower liqueur, Suze and citrus juice cocktail. They've named this floral concoction the No. 17 Jade Springs ($20), and added edible gold dust so your lips will shimmer after you've taken a sip. How Hollywood-movie-opium-den-esque.
