Ten for 10: Inside Nutmeg & Clove's New Menu to Mark A Decade of Slinging Cocktails


It's hard to believe Nutmeg & Clove has been around for a decade now. Ten years on, the Singapore bar continues to pull a crowd and bag numerous accolades, including its most recent titles of #7 of Asia's 50 Best Bars 2023. To celebrate it's tenth birthday, Nutmeg & Clove is launching a brand new cocktail and food menu, aptly called TEN. Here's what to expect...

In commemorating its colourful decade-long journey, Nutmeg & Clove is kickstarting its celebrations by unveiling a brand new look, along with a new cocktail and food menu. It proudly sports an updated logo, fresh interiors and redesigned uniforms for everyone on its team.

25 Brand New Cocktails: Inspired by a Decade of Memories

Simply and aptly called TEN, Nutmeg & Clove's new cocktail menu will feature 25 cocktails crafted by Head Bartender Gavin Teravasan. Priced at $25++ per glass, each cocktail pays tribute to key events of a particular year over the past ten years, and crowd-favourites over the years. There will also be a selection of Bartender’s Choice to add to the fun.

 

 

New Signatures include the Agnes’ Requiem, a floral, dry and fruity mix, shaken up from Monkey 47 Gin, Raspberry Eau De Vie, Rhubarb, Galangal, Orchid, Jasmine, Lemon and Saline.

 

 

A true ode to Singapore comes with the Don’t Chicken Out, a savoury, spicy and complex mix reminiscent of the Singapore staple chicken rice. The drinkable version is shaken up from Bacardi Anejo Cuatro 4YO Rum, Tio Pepe Fino, Sherry, cucumber, Hainanese chilli, lime and a dash of MSG.
 

 

If you're a Ramos Fizz fan (and who amongst Nutmeg & Clove's frequent patrons are not?), don't miss the Yam Seng, a tropical, creamy and refreshing concoction made from Montelobos Espadin Joven Mezcal, lemongrass, pandan, taro, lemon and cream, silkened with egg white for an extra smooth finish.

What's Cooking: A New Food Menu with Elevated Local Cuisine

 

Look forward to brand new dishes like The Lor Bak Sandwich, which takes a Vietnamese classic of crispy ciabatta roll and stuffs it with sliced braised pork belly before loading on a braised peanut spread, pickled mustard green aioli, cilantro and cucumber for a refreshing and crispy banh mi treat.

 

 

Meatless options are not forgotten with options like Suan Pan Zi, bite-sized handmade yam abacus seeds stir-fried to fragrant deliciousness with wood ear, shiitake mushrooms, shallot dust, toasted buckwheat and crowned with generous chives and an onsen egg. 

 

 

Sweet endings do not disappoint with the Kaya Crème Toast, a new iteration of the classic French toast, bruleed with pain perdu, kaya crème and finished off with a sprinkle of flaky salt.

A New Interior for Nutmeg & Clove

The uplifted interior has a rejuvenated colour palette to share the illumination of a new chapter with the brand. The lighting and décor provide a cozy and homely space to evoke feelings of warmth and comfort.

 

 

New glassware and crockery proudly display the new logo, all embellished with playful accents of pink. They match the new collared white shirts and pink jackets donned by the staff and menu covers, ringing home the new rebrand into a livelier, more energetic decade.
