Spago By Wolfgang Puck @ Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

Spago's 57th-level terrace lounge showcases the contemporary cuisine of American celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck - the food is accomplished; start with the signature stand-out of spicy tuna tartare cones ($36), a triumph of taste & texture, featuring luscious big eye tuna laced with chilli aioli & scallions in crunchy sesame-miso cones, a vividly memorable prelude to the meal.

Irresistibly nuanced recipes, made with top-flight ingredients - tarts topped with ultra-creamy foie gras mousse tinged with espresso, coconut-pandan kaya jam, soy & fleur de sel ($25), divinely decadent toast with sea urchin, Maryland blue crab, confit tomato marmalade & herb aioli ($44) & super-succulent grilled pork belly with gochujang aioli, jicama & nashi pear kimchi ($28); our sole order that misfired was the flat-tasting chicken laksa spring rolls ($22). Don't skip the exquisite Asian-accented cocktails, crafted with the likes of lapsang souchong-infused single malt, Fuji apples & Thai basils ($26 & above).
