Classic French And Modern European

For great rustic French classics perfectly executed with a unique Parisian atmosphere, I go to Brasserie Gavroche. At Cure, super talented Irish chef Andrew Walsh serves modern European food while both the atmosphere and service are friendly.

My Favourite Dim Sum

Just two addresses. The first is Tanjong Rhu Bao for delicious char siu bao (barbecued pork buns). I love it. Otherwise, I go to Din Tai Fung for my all-time favourite xiao long bao (Shanghai soup dumplings)

Steak and Seafood In Singapore

For a high-end steakhouse experience, try CUT by Wolfgang Puck at Marina Bay Sands. You could also try Luke’s Oyster Bar & Chop House for a delicious selection of Boston bay seafood, oysters and simple but beautifully prepared fish. Otherwise, get out of the city and head to The Naked Finn to taste Ken Loon’s carefully selected seafood.

High-End Japanese

Shinji by Kanesaka is an amazing sushi nigiri restaurant. For really beautiful kappo (counter) style dining, try Esora.

Cocktails In A Beautiful Setting

Singapore has no shortage of beautiful bars. Head to Spago Bar & Lounge for an amazing cocktail with a view. The view is equally impressive at Atlas Bar and Manhattan Bar. Both have great drink selections and beautiful atmospheres.
