Singapore’s dining scene continues to push boundaries and we’re so excited about this New Middle Eastern Supper Club which was unveiled last week! Cocktail trolley, elegant décor and outstanding personalised service with an incredible menu from Chef Nic Phillip – it’s a must for Singapore’s sophisticated diners! Hidden away in the back of a heritage shophouse on Peck Seah Street, the Ottomani is truly a venue for those in the know.
The restaurant effortlessly blends cutting edge culinary experience with personal touches, creating a unique and authentic venue. Executive Chef Nic Philip has a love of fresh, light cuisine and a passion for spice. He works with traditional culinary concepts and views them through the lens of his own memories, transorming them into unique, elevated interpretations, and something distinctly “Ottomani”.
The key element to everything at The Ottomani, from the design to the food, is fire. The intrigue and intimacy of oil lanterns in the space and food cooked with natural flame are central tenets to the guest experience. In the kitchen, Chef Nic utilises a one of a kind, custom designed wood-fired earth pit.
Driven by passion, every night before going home he builds a fire and burns it down to embers, burying the next night’s menu inside to slow roast overnight, providing a texture and depth of flavour unable to be replicated with more modern, less labour intensive, equipment. These unique items are served for two or more and the nightly selection includes Sticky Pork Belly with a rub of Turkish Coffee, Palm Sugar and Szechuan Pepper; and a slow roasted Lamb Shoulder with Spiced Molasses and Sumac Gremolata.
Capturing the service experience of days gone by, everything comes with a personal touch and a genuine approach at The Ottomani. With no bar in the space, the bartenders bring the bar to you by preparing drinks on a mobile trolley. The wine list and cocktail programme have been painstakingly selected by local rising star Symphony Loo and feature a mix of exclusive regional wines as well as upscale old & new world bottles, all chosen for their flavour profiles.
At the end of the night, there is always more than expected with a little piece of the experience to take home.
