For the month of August, make a beeline for Rempapa, where heritage food champion and custodian, Chef Damian D' Silva, teams up with next gen Singapore tastemakers

A meal at Chef Damian D'Silva's Rempapa is a mouth watering and eye-opening experience for most, thanks to a menu comprised of Singaporean favorites (think expertly made nasi lemak and fork-tender beef rendang), as well as forgotten heritage dishes, seasonal specials, and a colorful selection of kueh.

For the month of August, Rempapa takes all things local and cranks it up a notch for a National Day celebration unlike any other. For two days, Chef Damian taps on Marvas Ng, Executive Chef of Path, and Vasunthara Ramasamy (Vasun), a former MasterChef contestant and the brains behind the Indian private dining concept, Cutlery Optional. 

On 6 August, Chef Damian and Chef Marvas curate a Chinese set dinner served communal style. The menu features a unique array of dishes, which include a rich Collagen Soup, Steamed Golden Pomfret with an herbaceous sauce, and Asparagus with Sambal Juliana Beurre Blanc, among others.

This Chinese feast is a celebration of heritage and creativity, highlighting Chef Marvas' European training and Chef Damian's deep knowledge of local flavors.
