Fusion pairing: a Nutmeg & Clove pop-up at Roketto

nutmeg & clove roketto - food and cocktails


Award-winning cocktail bar Nutmeg & Clove collaborates with Roketto Izakaya for a month-long bar pop-up offering a range of its signature and classic cocktails.

Unfortunately for cocktail punters, award-winning cocktail bar Nutmeg & Clove remains closed during this coronavirus pandemic period. But if you’ve missed their Singapore-themed cocktails, you’re in luck. Nutmeg & Clove has tied up with Roketto Izakaya for a pop-up experience for the month of July.

For the bar pop-up that runs from 1 to 31 July 2020, Nutmeg & Clove will be offering a curated selection of its current “Tasty Origins of Our Five Pillars” menu – which taps on the cuisines of Singapore ethnic groups for inspiration – as well as several classic cocktails. If you enjoyed, for example, the chicken rice-inspired Maxwell Martini or the bandung-like Roses & Lychee, they’re available at Roketto for the pop-up.

Aside from those fun cocktails, Nutmeg & Clove will smashing together various signature and classic cocktails. There’s the Chrissy Fizz, their chrysanthemum-spiked highball, and Matcha Highball, both of which are perfect to wash Roketto’s bar grub down with. For those who prefer a stronger tipple, classics such as the Negroni, Vieux Carre and Side Car will provide the punch. We’d also highly recommend the Martini – prepared table-side via a mini bar trolley – that’s concocted with a blend of Botanist and Ki No Bi gin.

If you’re not familiar with Roketto Izakaya at Frasers Tower, it’s actually Relish by Wild Rocket in the day owned and run by award-winning mod Sin chef Willin Low that converts into a drinking hole in the evenings. Its food menu consists of fusion bites such as their Krapow Prata Pizza (Thai-style basil and chicken mince atop a prata base), a fancy twist on rojak with the Aburaage Rojak Salad (complete with a shrimp paste sorbet that melts down to dress the salad), and the very moreish Tandoori Beef Papadum Nachos.

The Nutmeg & Clove pop-up at Roketto runs now till 31 July 2020. Reservations are highly recommended.
