At most of our meetups, we eat vegan food at moderately priced, vegetarian eateries. Just for a change, it might be nice to try vegan food at a more expensive, non-vegetarian eatery. Bacchanalia - http://bacchanalia.asia – is an award winning restaurant with a legendary lineage from Heston Blumenthal's highly-acclaimed The Fat Duck restaurant in London. Earlier this year, Bacchanalia won two prestigious award: New Restaurant of the Year at The Peak Magazine’s annual G Restaurant Awards, and the S. Pellegrino New Restaurant of the Year award at the 2014 World Gourmet Summit.
The vegetarians behind the ‘Chicks Eat Vegan in Singapore’ FB visited Bacchanalia earlier this year and came away raving about it. (Visit the Chicks’ FB to learn more - www.facebook.com/ChicksEatVegan - with plenty of photos). Based on their visit, we decided to try a meetup at Bacchanalia. Bacchanalia’s head chef, Chef Ivan Brehm, has put together a special, totally vegan menu for us, chock full of ingredients and combinations we have never tried but are keen to sample. During the dinner, Ivan and his vegetarian wife will be talking to us about the food and their food journeys. We will also be joined by other of Bacchanalia’s food experts, plus the restaurant’s co-director, Raj Datwani. If you are ready to try something different, please join us. Places are limited to the first 20 people who register and make payment via http://peatix.com/event/39371. Hope to see you there. --george
