Bread Street Kitchen
Gordon Ramsay's bistro serving seasonal British European fare with locally-inspired flavors.
(In)famous celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay brings this bustling London restaurant here. The cool bistro-like environment comes with long wooden tables, exposed pipework, wire mesh, dark timber and a textured metal bar. While the menu changes seasonally, it's got both London favorites and locally inspired creations. Come for the name but stay for the gorgeous sunset views of the bay and their well-executed appetizers like the tamarind chicken wings, desserts and refreshing cocktails.
The buzz: (In)famous celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay brings his bustling London restaurant to Singapore located in no other place but Marina Bay Sands.
The vibe: The casual and industrial bistro with airy floor-to-ceiling windows, long wooden tables, cast iron manholes and a textured metal bar is pretty edgy for a celeb chef joint. It also has an offbeat playlist of grungy warehouse house music and softer electro tunes.
The food: The menu heavily comprises London signatures like shepherd's pie ($38) and fish & chips ($26). The starters, which are also great for sharing, are the standouts of the menu with plates of spicy tuna tartare ($19) and the unexpectedly delicious roasted veal carpaccio ($26) topped with dollops of creamy tuna. Don't miss the crispy tamarind spiced chicken wings ($18), which thoughtfully come with wet wipes. As far as mains go, the roasted black cod ($44) with crushed potatoes and red wine sauce is a home run, with its perfectly crisp skin, buttery flesh and hearty potatoes. Nothing is overly creative, but it's elevated British comfort food at its best.
The drinks: Beers and wine aside, the cocktail list is sizable, though the drinks are considerably light. The heavier-sounding Trinidad Sour ($26) with rye, bitters, orgeat and citrus is sweeter than it seems, while the Tio Abuelo ($22) is a great take on a G&T with the addition of passionfruit syrup and sherry. Fans of heavier drinks should go for the Second Secret ($22) with rye and apple brandy.
Why you'll be back: Star power is one thing, but the price points are approachable and the food hearty and reliable.
