For Thai-inspired burgers
Bad boy chef Bjorn Shen has launched an unapologetically indulgent supper menu comprising decadent renditions of burgers that are available every Friday and Saturday until 2 am. Highlights include The Chickenator, a deep-fried chicken patty sandwiched between a toasted bun and garnished with green papaya, onions, and som tum sauce, and the Salty Duck, with a coarse ground duck patty, salted egg tartar sauce, fresh mint and grilled onions. They may not be date night-friendly, but there’s a high chance you’ll be satisfried by these bird-gers.
For comfort food
Venetian fish stew
This celebrity chef bistro needs no introduction. But if you haven’t sampled Jamie Oliver’s hearty Italian dishes, you might want to give his new a la carte menu a go. It has mouthwatering plates like chicken Milanese—crumbed chicken breast with prosciutto and fontal cheese stuffing, and the rich Venetian fish stew, with shellfish and fregola in tomato and Fiano sauce. But the real stars of the show are their signature baked-to-order pizzas with varieties such as courgette pollo, funghi misti and Fiorentina.

For affordable omakase
Terra Tokyo-Italian Restaurant
It’s omakase with a twist—here, you’ll be dining not on Japanese fare dictated by a no-nonsense chef, but a Japanese take on authentic Italian cuisine instead. The restaurant’s new menu features seafood items such as spaghetti nero, which has fresh squid and home-made squid-ink sauce, sea urchin bruschetta and black Hokkaido abalone risotto, and also the premium olive beef, a type of quality wagyu from Kagawa prefecture. From $128++ per person, with an additional $88++ for a personalized wine pairing.
