If you have missed the opportunity to ‘dine affordably’ at some of Singapore’s best dining eateries at the recent Restaurant Week, the upcoming Asian gastronomic event, Asian Masters, is one event that you might not want to miss. Returning for the third year, the one-month long event happening in November will be in partnership with some of the better dining establishments in Singapore such as the Tung Lok Group, The Fullerton Singapore and Grand Hyatt Singapore to highlight the best of Asian flavours and talents.
Here are three interesting events that you might want to check out:

The seven course menu, a first that is specially put together for Asian Masters includes an unusual line-up of dishes such as ‘Traditional braised crocodile tail in original jus’ and ‘Grilled red deer fillet with dangui and wolfberries reduction’.
