Celebrate Esquina’s fifth anniversary with a line-up of treats. Up 'til April 2017, head chef Carlos Montobbio will be joined by five guest chefs in the kitchen to present a series of five dinners titled Amigos de Esquina. The feasts feature a selection of dishes made independently by chef Montobbio and each of the guest chefs, as well as dishes made jointly. For $148, enjoy classic local delights like nasi lemak chwee kueh coupled with the likes of the Norwegian king crab and fusion fare like laksa paella. Chef personalities include Nacho Baucells (of the world’s leading Spanish restaurant El Celler de Can Roca) plating out a menu in January, and Sun Kim (of Korean restaurant Meta) serving in March. Only 48 seats are available across the two seatings for each of the dinners, so make your reservations early to avoid disappointment.
In addition to the Amigos de Esquina collaborative dinners, Esquina has collated its signature dishes and is offering them as a five-course tasting menu for just $55 until January 31, 2017. Have the grilled Spanish octopus, chorizo croquet and grilled sucrine lettuce all in one meal.
