Award-winning dishes to tempt the palate

CUT at Marina Bay Sands Singapore is one of celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck's four restaurants under the same name and the first in Asia. The steakhouse is where the who's who of Singapore can be seen slicing prime beef over grand cru Bordeaux. The interior is sleek, masculine and fashionably dark.

Sweet and versatile

Mangoes are very popular in sweet Asian dishes - think mango pudding, lassi and yeung chi kam lo. But their sweetness can also act as a counterpoint to savoury dishes. Salads are the obvious idea - chop the mangoes up and chuck them into green salads, or salads with roast chicken or cold, cooked prawns.

Turning the tables

Do we foodies have a secret dirt fetish? I've met many foodies given to the idea that the smarter the front room of the restaurant, the dirtier the kitchen must be.

A prehistoric treat from the deep

Soft and slimy, the sea cucumber couldn't be further from the cool vegetable it's named after - apart from its shape. The bottom dweller, of which there are more than 1,000 species, ranges in size from 2cm to a few metres long and has been around for 400 million years.

Hooked on quack: a blessed Bali high

The duck is revered in Bali. For the duck, that's unfortunate. Unlike India's sacred cow, which often roams the chaotic streets unchecked, the Balinese duck is venerated only after it's dead and on the dining table.
