Even though the opportunity to travel overseas still can’t quite take full effect yet, there are still plenty of other ways to get a taste of the other side without having to leave the country.
Known for offering their experiential dining aboard the Singapore Cable Car, Mount Faber Leisure Group has partnered with Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) to bring you the second edition of their sky dining experience with Fly Me to Japan, to celebrate the 55th anniversary of Singapore-Japan relations as part of the SJ55 campaign.
From 1 July to 30 December 2021, you are invited to embark on a culinary journey to Japan with a four-course dinner menu set that you can enjoy in the intimacy of your own private cable car cabin.
Priced from $385 per couple, your 90-minute trip will take you to and from Mount Faber Park and Sentosa, where you can taste the authentic flavor of Japan while soaking in the panoramic views of the lush rainforest and Harbourfront.
The menu, created by Executive Chef Kenny Yeo of Mount Faber Leisure Group, features a unique take on Japanese cuisine using the finest seasonal produce specially sourced from Okinawa, Hokkaido, and Shiga. The meal kicks off with appetizers and soup at the pre-dining lounge followed by the main course and dessert aboard the cable car.
Each four-course menu comes with a choice of two mains — the Grilled Japanese Omi Wagyu with mashed purple sweet potatoes and braised daikon or the Pan-grilled Eel with Cabbage and Soba — as well as a serving of Yuzu Panna Cotta and a cup of premium Sakura Leaves tea for dessert.
A full vegetarian menu is also available for advanced booking featuring Lightly Boiled Baby Spinach with Toasted Sesame Seeds, and Char-grilled King Abalone Mushrooms & Aubergine with a side of sea grapes.
Safe Dining Measures
A series of safe dining measures have been implemented for the experience which includes the provision of hand sanitisers at the cable car station, and disposable mask bags for you to store your masks while dining. All staff members are also required to wear masks, gloves, and face shields respectively when handling food.
