The restaurant has declared its goal to serve unpretentious good food prepared in the special Mexican way. And it is food that is both great to look at and taste. How about starting off with a cheese fondue with taco chips? Then follow this with main courses such as roasted sweet potato and chilli japaleño, baked crab enchiladas or a “kitchen sink” burrito. @margaritasdempsey, 11 Dempsey Rd., +65 6471 3228 Exuberant Chingay Parade Singapore’s Chingay procession is the largest street performance and float parade in the whole of Asia and is an extravaganza which epitomises the dynamism of Singapore’s vibrant and multicultural society. February 10-11, chingay.org.sg/chingay-2017 SPOTLIGHT Breathtaking CÉ LA VI Elevated above the SkyPark Observation Deck of Marina Bay Sands, CÉ LA VI offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city skyline and the Singapore Straits to enhance a truly fine dining experience.

The Middle Eastern-inspired cuisine at artichoke restaurant most certainly does not fail to disappoint. In addition to a wide range of “mezze” plates (such as figs with goat cheese), hungry diners should try delicacies like slow-roasted lamb shoulder, Wagyu beef with a chilli harissa dip, hot skillet prawns and duck kebab tacos with innovative avocado hummus. artichoke.com.sg, +65 6336 6949 Soaring Success of Symphony In recent years, through its performances in Singapore and around the world — not to mention a growing portfolio of recordings — the Singapore Symphony Orchestra has been garnering a well-earned reputation for excellence. Now the orchestra teams up with the charistmatic Venezuelan maestro Gustavo Dudamel for a gala concert in the island nation’s durian-shaped Esplanade concert hall. January 5-6, sso.org.sg 104 Fah Thai
