Nu Nu

The better the view, the worse the food, right? Nu Nu bucks the trend. Its new digs have tropical modernist-inspired interiors that nudge the palm-fringed sand and the ocean, elevating this regional trendsetter to the next level and matching its seriously good food. Here, breakfast eggs might arrive pickled, atop Sichuan-spiced minced pork, with enoki and tofu in cahoots. At lunch, yellowfin tuna crudo comes with just-seared veal in an Asian-inflected nod to vitello tonnato, the creamy mayo replaced by a punchy ponzu more suited to the tropics. Coconut snow eggs present simply, but reveal layers of texture and flavour, mixing coconut sorbet with toasty coconut strips, pandan-infused green sago, crunchy praline, marshmallow and a spiced pineapple soup. It's ingenious food, served all day, that distils the essence of the region. Add an inspiring drinks list and urbane service, and cue the good times.
