Homegrown Terry’s Selection Makes Its Way To Singapore

September 28, 2019

Even with all the Spanish restaurants in the metro, the 15 year old Terry’s has remained one of the most beloved bastions of the cuisine in our city. The food of Juan Carlos de Terry has become the gold standard, with its simplicity, authenticity, and consistently delicious cooking. The chef is widely seen as one of the more important figures in our culinary scene, with two locations in Metro Manila.

On the 1st of October, Terry’s first international branch opened in Singapore in the Shaw Centre. The Les Amis group, responsible for many of Singapore’s culinary institutions including San Pellegrino fixture Bistro du Vin, brought the famed Terry’s to the country. The partnership looks to be a formidable one, since both establishments have solid reputations in their respective countries. Hopefully this is just the beginning, and other restaurants in Manila will start to get the international recognition they deserve.

    Nice! Hope their selection (see what I did there?) of ingredients remains as comprehensive as the ones here.
