Chef Ryan Clift from ‘Tippling Club’, hailed as one of Singapore’s top restaurants and Number 31 on this year’s Asia’s 50 Best Restaurant List, at the iconic al-fresco roof top restaurant Vertigo.
We had a chance to attend Chef Ryan master class in Bangkok. Overall, we found ourselves applauding each crafted dish – for the explosion of colors, taste and a riot for the senses. Creative combinations of cooking techniques, flavors and textures.
Special thanks to Sanpellegrino, initiated the Fine Dining Lovers Guest Chef Series to feature renowned chefs from top dining destinations around the world, bringing top-notch epicurean experiences to diners in Thailand.
Crab with Nashi, Oba, Yuzu, Wild Nasturtiums: Loved the freshness of the crab combined with the fat free & juicy Nashi.
Served with Frank Land Estate Rocky Gully Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Australia: Low yields and good natural acid retention, as a result of the cool Frankland River climate, provides a wine of freshness and style. A bright and fresh coloured wine; figoa fruit notes and golden straw dustyness; slightly talky texture, with a fresh crisp fruit drive, this wine finishes with nice weight and focus. Grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc are sourced of our organically certified vineyards. A cool ferment retains freshness and fruit focus.

In early 2008, he moved to Singapore to start his own venture, determined to take modern food and cocktail pairings to a new level. It was here that Chef Clift launched Tippling Club. Within its first two years, Tippling Club was regarded as one of Singapore’s top restaurants.
Wagyu , Burrata, fruit tomato, sea grapes – Delicious wagyu with fresh Burrata cheese and Coccoloba grapes (a fantastic alternative to caviar!)
Served with Balnaves Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Connawara, Australia
Balnaves has always produced a a classically elegant Coonawarra Cabernet. Blackcurrant fruit, liquorice and mineral characters are enhanced by cedary French oak. Beautifully balanced with a long, textured finish. Deep rich red in colour, the nose is intense with aromas of cassis, blueberry, mint and seaweed, combined with fine mocha-coffee French oak. The palate is structured and lean with ripe cassis fruit and a fine-tannin finish.
