A visit to db Bistro & Oyster Bar at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is a religious experience for devout burgerists. In-the-know foodies make the pilgrimage from all over the world for the Original db Burger – a gargantuan top sirloin creation famously filled with foie gras and braised short ribs in a Parmesan bun embrace. It is a marvel to see, with a taste that can only be described as heavenly. But burger nirvana is not only achieved with indulgent ingredients. Every element of the dish from the construction to the condiments will make you a believer in intelligent design. After all, db Bistro & Oyster Bar was established by a virtual deity in the culinary world, Chef Daniel Boulud. As such, his virtuosity is evident in each creation that leaves the kitchen.
And despite its larger-than-life reputation, db Bistro & Oyster Bar manages a down-to-earth, modern bistro feel. With an updated crimson and mahogany theme and faultless service, the Bistro personifies chic French dining. The Original db Burger certainly draws the most devotees, but the comfortable dining room also hosts business gatherings, Marina Bay shoppers and Singapore visitors.
The menu features exquisite bistro classics – Coq Au Vin, Tartare, Oysters, Duck Confit – all done so well that it will become your new standard for future imitations. It’s no wonder db Bistro & Oyster Bar is on the universal foodie bucket list, and to answer your prayers, your seat is now just a click away. (Oct 2013)
