Maison Marie

Maison Marie is a new European bistro cum marketplace that’s located at Upper Bukit Timah Road. The new venture, founded by Singaporean entrepreneurs, Charles Ng (ex-Culina Founder), Brandon Tan and Evelyn Chua, is conceptualized from the markets and restaurants of Europe’s streets.

The menu includes Mediterranean-inspired dishes such as the Whole Mediterranean Seabream, a surf-and-turf take with the Octopus Bolognese, and a European classic, charcoal-grilled prawns in homemade parsley and garlic oil that’s best dipped in freshly baked baguette. The same culinary ingredients can be found in the adjacent marketplace that’s stocked with premium products directly from European exports.

Should you fancy recreating the main course you just had, pop by next door and order your favorite cuts from the butcher, and top up on oils, cheeses, spreads and the like.

PONY

PONY by Jigger & Pony is a series of bottled cocktails that’s handcrafted from among Asia’s best bartenders. The concept was developed to allow consumers to enjoy their favorite cocktails at home, and could arguably become the new BYOB for house parties.

The lineup comprises the Classic and Signature series, and have each introduced new flavors. The Classic Martini mix is crafted with Roku Gin, Mancino Secco, orange bitters, Amalfi lemon essence, and Buddha’s Hand essence, that adds up to be a refreshing drink best served ice cold.

The Cassis and Rose cocktail uses Suntory Chita whiskey as a base, and is added with Merlet Creme de Cassis, Haku Vodka, rose water, and Bowmore 12 Scotch Whisky, among others. One can expect berry-tasting notes and a surprisingly smokey finish.
