The Singapore culinary world recently reacted with shock after hearing that one of the country’s best restaurants will be closing down, with its restaurateur walking away from the culinary distinction achieved after winning two coveted stars in Singapore’s Michelin Guide.

Taiwanese-born chef Andre Chiang of Restaurant Andre wants to be stripped of the honor and plans to focus on new projects in his home country.

Those who haven’t had a chance to check the restaurant out will have till Feb 14, 2018, to dine in at Asia’s second best restaurant. Oh, and you’ll also have to cough out over $800 just to dine and sup at the Bukit Pasoh eatery for its final meals.

The restaurant’s “Farewell” Octaphilosophy menu is available for lunch and dinner, and will include beverage pairing to go along with a meal that costs double than usual.

Charging patrons through the nose is quite a way to bid farewell to Singapore and the Michelin Guide, but the steep price is not scaring anyone away. According to the eatery’s website, it’s been inundated with a high volume of requests and can’t respond to everyone at this time.

A full prepayment of the menu will also be required to confirm reservations, and there’s a strict no refund policy due to the menu being exclusive and all.

Amongst all the well-wishes and bittersweet goodbyes to Chef Andre, folks aptly pointed out the absurd price point for its send off.
