Award-winning veteran bartender Boo Jing Heng helms his own establishment with a curated selection of cocktails.
Online PR News – 31-March-2020 – Singapore – Exquisitely fashioned cocktail menu features a personal twist on classics and signatures; with bottled cocktails for connoisseurs and Seedlip1 variations for non-alcoholic options.
1 The world’s first distilled non-alcoholic spirit
Whether strolling along charming Tanjong Pagar Road on a lazy weekend, or pounding the pavement during the lunch hour rush, passers-by will be pulled in by the golden-hued aesthetics at Revamp Kitchen & Bar. Or perhaps - the boyish grin of co-owner and Head Bartender, Boo Jing Heng. When he is not measuring the perfect balance of flavours behind the bar, he enjoys stepping out to the main street where he usually encounters a familiar face (or two) and flash the same charming smile. The Diageo World Class 2016 Singapore winner is now a mainstay at the hip dining neighbourhood, where he elevates the offerings at Revamp Kitchen & Bar with his personal take on cocktails that pair perfectly with the restaurant’s modern European-inspired cuisine.
Envisioning the lofty space to be filled with diners enjoying their mains with a side of beverage, followed by a pre-drinks crowd chasing down bar bites with a tipple, Jing Heng is determined to keep prices affordable and the ambience casual and relaxed.
“Tanjong Pagar is fast becoming the go-to spot for dining and drinks, beyond the Korean restaurants that the area is synonymous with. People are flocking here for the posh restaurants, destination bars and trendy cafes. Revamp Kitchen & Bar will be a place where couples or large groups can come and enjoy the exquisite pairings of food and drinks in a luxe yet comfortable setting throughout the night – without having to shell out steep prices just for a good drink,” he says with a passion and an unmistakeable vigour that has not only lasted, but stems from an eight-year experience in the F&B industry.
With his foundations laid strongly in classics, he stands behind Revamp Kitchen & Bar’s selection which includes the citrusy-tart Mai Tai (Mount Gay Eclipse Rum, Cointreau, Orgeat, Lime), the spicy, but not too sweet Moscow Mule (Reyka Vodka, Lime, Ginger Beer) housed in a solid copper mug, and the complex yet perfectly balanced Ramos Gin Fizz (Bickens Gin, Lemon, Lime, Cream, Egg White, Orange Blossom Water, Soda).
For the “Signatures” menu designed and named with his customers in mind so that the drinks can be clearly identified, get a taste of Jing Heng’s winning cocktail, the G&T Martini (Tanqueray Ten Gin, Grapefruit Tonic, Lime Cordial), for the embodiment of “Classic with a Twist”. Or go for an adult’s choice of dessert – French Mint, Chocolate Martini (Sailor Jerry Rum, French mint, Chocolate and Half&Half), to end the meal on a sweet high.
Cocktail connoisseurs will appreciate Bottled Cocktails (for cocktails-on-the-go) with DrinkEasy crafted by Jing Heng. Available in two variations (Gin and Whiskey), and two sizes each (150 ml and 320 ml), choose from a range of spirits and garnish for a bespoke drink, mixed to personal taste. Seedlip, a non-alcoholic spirit made with distilled water and refreshing and natural ingredients such as blueberry shrub, sencha tea and spice pumpkin shrub, is a must-try for those who prefer non-alcoholic options that do not compromise on taste or quality. It has been a welcome addition in international bars at luxury hotels, chic clubs, top-rated restaurants and now, Revamp Kitchen & Bar.
Customers can enjoy selected cocktails, shots and food at only SGD10 during “Nightcap” that runs every Friday, Saturday and eve of Public Holidays from 10pm to closing.
