Gourmet Plus

Having been around since 2004, Gourmet Plus has proven it’s got the right stuff to be a mainstay in the East Coast dining scene. The small alfresco terrace was extended recently much to the delight of many. The bistro still packs in the crowd, and can get a tad cramped and noisy, but all is […]

Lingzhi Vegetarian Restaurant (Liat Towers)

LingZhi proves that vegetarian food can be varied and tasty. We say order the crispy wild mushrooms with salad; vegetarian roast duck; and wok-fried monkey head mushrooms with dried chili. You won’t think of vegetarian food as boring, beancurdy mush again, that’s for sure.

Min Jiang

A Chinese restaurant with excellent dim sum, pretty interiors and a breezy poolside setting.

Oriole Coffee + Bar

The chic cafe is reinvented as an equally chic space with more creative drinks (coffee cocktails included). The modern cafe now serves an all-day breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a new takeaway counter. If coffee’s not what you crave, they’ve also got a selection of tipples like wines, beers and cocktails to go […]

Pete’s Place

The fact that Pete’s Place has been around since 1973 must mean it’s doing something right. Resembling a cozy, family-run trattoria, it serves up similarly rustic fare such as the seafood-laden cioppino and pizza pam pam (a two-in-one special comprising a half calzone filled with mortadella, mozarella and ricotta; and a half pizza with minced […]

Marché Restaurant

Marché is Singapore’s well known European food court. With your order slip in hand, you scout around the myriad stalls for your choice of food, and collect stamps for each order which you present at the cashier at the end of your meal. The variety feels endless—pastas, pizzas, paella, salads, roasts and their popular rosti […]

Equinox Restaurant

Get a window seat so you can have your breath taken away by the stunning view from the restaurant’s lofty perch on the 70th floor. The bar and restaurant are a mix of Asian elements—think a traditional-looking, Chinois-inspired dining room with a modern bar. There’s an abundance of food choices so that diners can go […]

Da Wan Zhou—The House of Congee

Apart from the 48 kinds of congee on its menu, Da Wan Zhou also offers noodles in various permutations. You can choose to sit out and watch the crowd on the quay, or dine in air-conditioned, fluorescent-lit comfort. The deep-fried wontons are a must, as are the double fried yew char kway. Can’t get enough […]

A-Roy Thai Restaurant

This unpretentious, no-frills eatery has a slightly random, haphazard and distinctly ’80s (it harks back to 1988) feel about it, but that’s part of its charm; and who cares when the food’s good? You’ll get authentic homecooked Thai fare here, none of that fusion stuff. Don’t underestimate the fieriness of their tom yum noodle soup—it’s […]

Alligator Pear

The emphasis at Fairmont Singapore’s Alligator Pear is on healthy lifestyle cuisine—and its breezy poolside setting certainly makes it a relaxing spot. The service is agreeable and genial too. Try signature items such as the steam marinated Norwegian cod; and grilled tuna steak with organic capsicum compote.
