In Singapore, there are few better places to stop in for an afternoon meal, a day of shopping or a weekend of luxury than the Marina Bay Sands.
Since opening in April 2010, Marina Bay Sands has clinched a host of awards for both its excellent facilities and excellence in service. This state-of-the-art luxury hotel and marina offer more than 60 exceptional dining choices for guests to enjoy, including restaurants owned by celebrity chefs such as Mario Batali, Daniel Boulud, Wolfgang Puck, Tetsuya Wakuda, David Thompson, Gordon Ramsay and Singapore’s own Justin Quek.
For some of the best local Singaporean cuisine, Chef Justin Quek presents Sky on 57. The highest spot at Marina Bay Sands, Sky on 57 is located on the 57th floor of the Sands SkyPark Tower 1, which offers guests incredible views as they enjoy their meals. The ambiance is laidback, contemporary chic; you can spend a full day here enjoying the amenities. Open from 7 a.m.to midnight daily, Sky on 57 serves everything from breakfast to lunch to high tea and dinner.
Joshua Zinder Architecture + Design created the flowing, modern, dynamic space, which provides uninhibited views of the Singapore skyline and beyond. Upon entering the 12,000-square-foot restaurant, guests are greeted in a bar/lounge zone. The main dining space seats 150 and has four private areas for guests to enjoy. Ninety additional seats for alfresco dining are located on the terrace, which offers both ocean and city views.
The keystone to Sky on 57, despite its incredible views and impressive ambiance, is the cuisine. From a young age, Chef Justin Quek tickled his palate with his favorite flavors: hot, sour, salty and sweet — the quintessential qualities of the local fare. Quek has meticulously crafted the menus of Sky on 57 around these flavors, reinterpreting them in modern and exciting ways. The contemporary Asian menu highlights traditional Singaporean favorites, such as Maine Lobster Hokkien Mee, Grilled Kagoshima Wagyu Beef, Wok-fried Asian Black Pepper Lobster and Baked Miso Cod with Ginger and Lime Butter and delivers the dishes with a flair all their own. Quek is known for adding Singapore to a foodie’s must-visit list. This award-winning chef showcases creative and tantalizingly unique dishes that you won’t soon forget. Other menu-must-haves include Justin Quek’s signature Foie Gras Xiao Long Bao, the Lobster “Marco Polo,” complete with a homemade XO sauce, and Asian Dumplings with Goose Liver. Finish your delightful meal with the restaurant’s signature Macaroons, which are made with Pandan and Gula Java.
