District 10 Bar Tapas Restaurant
With slick dark wood furnishings, concrete floors and its name emblazoned graffiti-style across the wall, this tapas joint gives off a raw, urban vibe. Bites like boiled octopus with potato, paprika and olive oil ($14) and stewed beans with spicy chorizo ($9.80) are on the menu, alongside sweets such as crema catalana ($9.80) and the District 10 sour cherry sundae ($11).
A great option when you’ve over indulged, this raw food eatery serves healthy fruit entrees in six flavors: The berry-based Forest ($9.90), Mediterranean ($8.90), which includes fresh figs, Tropical ($7.90), a mix of rose apple and mango sauce, Summer Orchard ($9.90), featuring nectarines, Grapevine ($8.90) with apples and grapes, and Asian Fusion ($7.90), dragonfruit in ginseng dressing. Besides these fruit salads, there are also cold press juices ($6.80)—such as the Chestnut Cooler and Wild Wild Berries—enzyme shots ($2), including longan and beetroot as well as pineapple kiwi (to aid digestion), and side dishes ($2.50) like salsa with nut-based chips. Nothing is heated beyond 43 degrees Celsius to retain the nutrients.
Flavors like pistachio and lemon are the specialty at this respected Italian gelato chain making its Singapore debut at The Star Vista. Order a cup (from $4.80), cone (from $4.50) or—for an extra buck—get them to shape your gelato into a rose ($5.80). Don’t leave without checking out the quirky wooden Pinocchio statue and figurines at the back of the store.
Package coffee giant Owl’s debut café is a comfortable wood-covered space with signature sips like 100% Authentic Kopi Luwak ($18.90)—civet coffee with coffee caviar—and charcoal roasted coffee ($8.90). If you’re not a caffeine fan, there are also peach smoothies ($4.90) and soursop freezes ($4.90). Order food from a fusion menu with dishes such as spaghetti with laksa sauce ($9.90), as well as the roti bakar assam nanas ($4.50), toast with tamarind sauce, ham and pineapple.
At this 180-seat American smokehouse, chow down on the signature Sticky Bones ribs (full slab $36.90; half slab $24.90 —in Hickory BBQ, smoked peppercorn and spicy Tuscan flavors—or have them pulled in the Morgan’s Hot Rib Sandwich ($19.90). For lighter bites, there are salads like the chicken Caesar ($17.90) and snacks such as bacon-wrapped meatballs ($9.90). While you’re at it, throw back cocktails like the strawberry apple mojito and Long Island iced tea, available by the glass ($15.90) or by the pitcher ($38.90).
