Kopi Tiam

For the record, Kopi Tiam bears no relation to the chain of food courts also called Kopitiam. Instead, this is a sturdy institution where you can get authentic and tasty hawker food in a hotel setting. Try the fish head curry, Kopi Tiam laksa and Hainanese chicken rice. Book a table at Kopi Tiam with […]


This restaurant located in the welcoming confines of Hotel Re! Singapore boasts affordable and tasty food. Re!Fill’s menu has both International and local specialties available.

Tatsuya Japanese Restaurant

For premium sashimi, few do it better than Tatsuya. Just be prepared to pay though. The menu changes every two weeks, as much is dependent on the seasonal offerings. Try to book yourself a counter seat so you can be part of the action transpiring here. A must-try is the toro tataki (lightly seared tuna […]

Goldleaf New Taiwan Porridge Restaurant

The no-frills interior of this restaurant doesn’t provide a hint of just how good the food is going to be. The food is absolutely delicious, and the way to do it is to order a bunch of items and have them with sweet potato porridge. Top sellers at this hole-in-the-wall gem are the omelets; chicken […]

The Tiffin Room

With its antiquated surroundings and ceiling fans whirring slowly overhead, The Tiffin Room is redolent of the colonial era, and almost seems like a place untouched by the passage of time. The food here is good too—mulligatawny soup, butter chicken, Hyderabad fish and spinach with cottage cheese—by Chef Kuldeep Negi are ever delectable.

The Marmalade Pantry + Cork Cellar

Previously known as Cork Cellar Kitchen, the new name now reiterates the Marmalade Group branding. There is an extensive grazing menu here with short orders (read: Small dishes, tapas style), and long orders for dinner. The short order—crab linguine is fab, and, we dare say, outshines the bigger dishes. Desserts are yummy too.

SPACE@ My Humble House

Local comfort food goes upscale at this less expensive alternative to My Humble House. Signature dishes include Mama Leong’s chicken rice, rack of lamb “bak kut teh,” seafood laksa, wok-fried Wagyu beef hor fun and fried radish cake. Great for a pre-theater meal.

Raffles Grill

Even though Raffles Grill has been around forever, the impeccable service, formal colonial ambiance and gourmet menu that reads like poetry all remain. From caviar, duck liver, lobster medallion and prime steaks, the food is one rich culinary delight after another. A pianist provides soothing music, while smartly-attired wait staff perform discreetly.

Element Restaurant

At the newly revamped Element, you won’t just get to enjoy a buffet spread (from $45 per person) of international treats like sashimi, foie gras, and a range of Asian-inspired dishes, but also Spanish fare by chef Mikel Badiola, who puts out creations like seafood paella at the buffet area. You can also take your pick […]

Olive Tree

You’ll find an international spread running the gamut from sushi to local dishes here. While the menu changes every year, signatures such as gulai lemak nanas (pineapple curry with prawns); quattro stagioni pizza; and rosemary skewered vegetables; Italian polenta; tomato fondue and pesto are main-stayers.
