Singapore, 13 September 2018 — Pan Pacific Singapore collaborates with the acclaimed Cuca, fine dining restaurant from Jimbaran, Bali, to bring their signature gastro tour Swig & Nibble to Singapore. As the inaugural event on our sunny island, Swig & Nibble will be held at Pan Pacific Singapore’s Atrium, the iconic lobby bar featuring an eclectic collection of floating pods and Poolside Bar, an urban tropical bar set amidst lush greenery in the hotel. Opened in 2013, Cuca is ranked top ten of Asia’s Best Fine Dining Restaurants by TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice 2017.
On 19 and 20 October 2018, Swig & Nibble showcases a theatrical line-up of whimsical creations curated by award-winning Chef Kevin Cherkas. Cuca is the brain child of Chef Kevin who has amassed culinary experience in Michelin restaurants such as El Bulli and Arzak in Spain and Daniel in New York.
Following Cuca’s concept of super casual meets fine dining and Chef Kevin’s philosophy of crafting globally inspired, locally sourced tapas (from Indonesia), guests may look forward to a convivial party where 20 quirky and innovative canapés are served in a non-stop, predetermined sequence.
Some of Cuca’s savoury highlights include Sambal Lolli, Foie Gras Cupcake, Scallop Gratin and Magic Mushroom. Not to be missed are attractive sweets such as Mango Yolk, where the soft core of liquid mango and citrus flavours is cradled in the delicate egg shell and Cinnamon French Toast, made with a medley of apple custard, plump raisins and cinnamon.
Apart from tantalising the eyes and taste buds, these canapés are meticulously paired with different cocktails and wines from Poolside Bar and Atrium at every interval to enhance the tapas experience. Cocktails include Gin Beer, Chocolate Old Fashioned and a selection of wines. Be prepared to immerse in an all-rounded sensory experience with a selection of upbeat music that will make this an unforgettable event.
“Singapore, a country with an evolving food scene, is the ideal home to welcome Cuca’s Gastro Tour. As a hotel with seven award-winning restaurants and bars, we are delighted to showcase Cuca’s unique dining concept paired with our extensive collection of wines and unique cocktails from Atrium and Poolside Bar. This is part of Pan Pacific Singapore’s efforts to continually provide guests with refreshing epicurean experiences in the comfort of the hotel,” said Steven Laine, Resident Manager at Pan Pacific Singapore.
