Industry veteran Kamil Foltan and his wife Zurina Bryant run this lab- bar on the upper floor of a shophouse, spinning odd, local ingredients such as curry leaves, bananas and jackfruits into brilliantly balanced drinks that leave a lingering, often unforgettable, aftertaste. Go sweet-and-spicy with the Maharaja, or be a daredevil with the Pi Pa, which was inspired by cold parsnip-and- pineapple soup. Their house-made bottled cordials are available for purchase, too. ibhqsingapore.com; cocktails from S$24.
