Tucked away in a leafy, residential community on Faber Drive, between Clementi and Pandan Gardens, this cozy restaurant and sake bar is less about following the trends and more about being an enduring, classic go-to spot for its regulars—a steady stream of young expats and residents who come for the solid and broad menu and the excellent sake selection. The in-house sake sommelier, Lois Ong, is proud of the over-50 labels Nobiro carries, with a special focus on boutique, small-batch names. The simply decorated, unintimidating space—think streamers of sake labels and mounted wooden blocks sporting yakitori menus—keep the focus squarely on the food, drink and conversation.
