Its pronounced “uskewbah” and means ‘whisky’ or ‘water of life’ in Gaelic. UsQuBa at 1 Fullerton (a few doors down from Forlino and Saint Pierre) is a new Scottish restaurant in town. There are no men in kilts to greet you as you walk in, instead you are greeted with lovely views of Marina Bay and a dark sleek whisky bar. The Canadian Chef Guven Uyanik has worked in many a Michelin starred restaurant including Maze of Gordon Ramsey and works his French cooking techniques into the Scottish ingredients with visible elements of Asian flare. Dishes range from the comforting Ravioli of Pork Cheeks ($21) in a rich porcini sauce, to the light and refreshing Orkney Islands Scallop Ceviche ($25) – a stand out dish of sashimi scallops served with horseradish snow, sea urchin and compressed cucumber. UsQuBa Fish and Chips ($32) sees a very modern take on this classic dish (though there’s no batter nor chips in sight) – instead a tender soft sous vide cod with vibrant green minty mushy peas and in lieu of chips, pommes maxim – a pretty crown of crispy potatoes shavings. For the meat eaters, Duet of Aberdeen Angus Beef ($56) consisting of grilled tenderloin and a small portion of braised short ribs with plum jus. Executive lunches start $38/$48 for 2 or 3 courses.
