CHOMP ON A BURGER, DOWN A COCKTAIL

If you're curious what a sushi chef comes up with when tasked with creating burgers to pair with cocktails, pop by Nektar in Scotts Road today.

It's a jam session involving the cocktail bar, gourmet food truck The Travelling C.O.W. and chef Kenjiro "Hatch" Hashida from Hashida Sushi restaurant.

The chef has come up with original flavours such as the Sakura-Masu Burger, which has a deep-fried fillet of cherry trout between the bread. And his Wagyu Nikujaya Burger is a twist on the Japanese wagyu beef stew croquette.
