Dallas Restaurant & Bar | Review

The three-story Dallas sounds like a ranch-style American diner, but it’s actually a chic restaurant housed inside a tasteful conservation shophouse. Good dishes to try are the Thai beef salad, salt and pepper calamari, Southern burger and the barbequed barramundi fillets. The menu is refreshed every three months.

Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant

Singapore’s oldest revolving restaurant specializes in genuine Beijing cuisine—something you cannot easily find elsewhere. Besides the spectacular views, you can always count on Prima Tower Revolving Restaurant’s venerable Chef Chan Sung Og to cook up a storm—be sure to order signature favorites such as the crispy barbequed Peking duck, delectable shredded scallops with fish and […]

Viet Lang

Tuck into affordable, traditional Vietnamese cuisine within chic, beige surroundings with dark wood tables and discreet lighting in a historical building. The grilled shrimp paste on sugarcane, prawns steamed with coconut juice, and braised cod fish in claypot are just some of its delicious highlights.

Privé Grill

This port of call has a nice ambiance, never mind its rather inaccessible location (in fact, we think the bridge you have to cross to get there makes it ever so quaint and special). It’s the ideal place for power breakfasts by the marina, and it’s also very appealing in the evenings with a view […]


Nestled in the eastern corner of the island, Bernie’s in Changi is escapism at its best. Popular with local residents, workers from the airport complexes and industrial parks nearby and city denizens looking to chill, this is a perfect spot to get away from stressed-out Singapore. We’re big fans of the steaks, burgers, fish and […]

Café Iguana

This bright, fuchsia-colored cantina known as a tequila bar also serves up gourmet Latino cuisine from Mexico and beyond. Some of the dishes you shouldn’t miss at Cafe Iguana include the smoked salmon soft taco, Tequila grill, green chili pork stew and ancho Chile chocolate cake. Have a go at the tequilas too, naturally. Taco […]


This Italian beachfront restaurant has a 32-foot-high flying trapeze for dramatic effect. The food is more down to earth, however, with a nice range of pizzas, salads and pastas. Try the highly rated seafood linguine; or the signature Pizza Siciliana with sausage, olives and capsicum. Order some beers too and you’re all set to sit […]

Jiang-Nan Chun

Considering that this restaurant is in the swanky Four Seasons, you’d expect nothing less than top-notch Cantonese cuisine and dim sum here. Well, Jiang Nan Chun certainly doesn’t disappoint, delivering dishes such as the paper-wrapped superior shark’s fin and crabmeat; cod fillet with sautéed egg white; and sautéed Wagyu beef cubes with Japanese green peppers, […]

Chat Masala

At Chat Masala, not only might you spot footballer-turned-restaurateur V. Sundramoorthy, but you will also excite your tastebuds with the Mysore mutton, eggplant strips and carrot cake. The menu includes North Indian, South Indian and not-so-Indian dishes. Try the devil prawn (or if you prefer, fish head) curry, mutton briyani and butter chicken.

Hai Tien Lo

Perched on the 37th floor, the view at Hai Tien Lo is gorgeous—affording panoramic views of the city skyline and Marina Bay on a clear day. This Cantonese maestro is still as classy and its cuisine, as tasty as ever. Have a go at scrumptuous dishes like the cod fillet with Japanese sake sauce; and […]
