1. Tipo


tipo-ambience-shot

Those passionate about their pasta would have heard of Tipo Pasta Bar. This Muslim-owned eatery has garnered significant acclaim for their handmade pasta expertise. 

tipo-flatlay

It’s all about DIY pasta at Tipo. Prices start from $9.90 for 120g of the pasta of your choice, made fresh daily. Pick a sauce and your combination of toppings, and voila. Aside from tiered pasta mains, the restaurant also offers sharing bites. A popular pick is their Truffle Tramezzini ($16++): mini sandwiches packed with cheese, truffle mayo, and beef bacon. 

The restaurant tends to be fully booked, so definitely make your reservations ahead of time. Note that they’re not halal-certified, but, as mentioned, are Muslim-owned.

Honbo, the well-known burger chain originating from Hong Kong, has opened its first overseas restaurant in Singapore. The 40-seater restaurant in CHIJMES is a great spot to visit for a casual lunch or dinner with friends.

3. Kok Sen 


Kok Sen is a familiar name in Singapore’s zi char restaurants scene. Housed along Keong Saik Road, there’s almost always a crowd during mealtimes—amplified by the fact that the restaurant has a spot on the Michelin Bib Gourmand lists in 2016 and 2023. 

The zi char menu features staples such as fried rice, prawn paste chicken, and stir-fried vegetables. Kok Sen takes these staples a notch higher as their dishes are all served power-packed with wok hei, the distinct smoky flavour achieved through stir-frying in a seasoned wok, over high heat. A meal here would be remiss without their Big Prawns Hor Fun (from $19), one of the most popular items on the menu, wooey, wok-hei infused hor fun and gravy are topped with huge prawns.

waa-cow-vivocity-meat-lovers-chirashi-1

A crowd fave here is their Yuzu Foie Gras Wagyu Beef ($30.90++), where marbled cuts of Wagyu steak come served with a slab of seared foie gras dressed with yuzu zest to cut through the fat. Each portion comes with a runny onsen egg as well, to make each bite all that more creamy. If you don’t eat beef, there’s also a variety of butadon and seafood donburi bowls, including chirashi, you can order.

The restaurant offers family-style mains best enjoyed with a side of Nasi Kunyit ($2+), where rice is perfumed with 11 different spices. A majority of the menu is centred around Balinese barbecue, with highlights including their Cumi Bali ($38+), of charcoal-grilled squid, and Ayam Sate Madura ($20+), chunky chicken satay topped with fried shallots.

Lagnaa is a regular fixture on the Michelin Bib Gourmand list for their Indian menu, built around the six flavours of Ayurvedic nutrition. Everything at this three-storey establishment is a flavour bomb, from their signature sets to their ala carte dishes. You can choose where you prefer to sit, but we recommend dining upstairs, with floor seating, for the true Lagnaa experience. 

If you’re spoilt for choice, the eatery has a curated selection of set menus, each with six different dishes off their menu, including options for vegetarian diners. Prices start at $60 for a set that feeds two. With each set, you can expect to have a variety of their signature dishes, from vegetable pakora to chicken tikka. Lagnaa is also famous for serving up some of the spiciest curries in Singapore, so if you’re up for the challenge, there are 10 levels of spice to choose from, though levels seven to 10 are so deadly, you can only be invited to order them.

7. Zhup Zhup by One Prawn & Co


one prawn & co - gwyneth ang

Zhup Zhup by One Prawn & Co is a former hawker stall run by an ex-Burnt Ends chef who has recently established a standalone restaurant along MacPherson Road. Here, you can get their famed prawn noodles, as well as a new 12-course dinnertime menu that celebrates seafood. 

one prawn & co - flatlay

Swing by during the daytime and dig into their range of claypot prawn noodles, priced from $14. This comes with the eatery’s signature broth that’s made with pork bones and prawn stock, slow-boiled to extract maximum flavour. Come by during dinner, and the humble eatery becomes a full-fledged seafood bar and grill, serving up a course menu priced at $138++ per person. While the latter menu changes from time to time, you can always expect the freshest catch, ranging from fish to prawns, lobster to crab, and even oysters.

Keng Eng Kee Seafood is a family-run zi char restaurant that has been around for three generations, and has since bagged a Michelin Plate award, as well as several television features. While formerly a hawker zi char operation, they’ve also opened a full-fledged restaurant in SAFRA Tampines.

Must-orders include their  Signature Moonlight Hor Fun (from $12+), wok-fried hor fun with Taiwanese sausages, prawns, and sliced fish, topped with raw eggs. The Coffee Pork Ribs (from $22+) were the other star of the show: addictive and big on flavour, with notes of coffee shining through the sticky-sweet glaze.

10. Picanhas’


picanhas review - ambience

Run by the folks behind The Feather Blade, Picanhas’ is a Muslim-owned steakhouse serving up affordable cuts of picanhas steak, AKA the rump cut. For the uninitiated, the rump cap may not possess the same tenderness as the ribeye or tenderloin. The restaurant takes extra steps to marinate the mixture in a salt brine. It’s then slowly sous-vided before it is seared.

picanhas new restaurants march 2021

The menu has four items, each spotlighting the picanhas cut in a different way, from burgers to pasta. The Queen of Steak ($31++), for example, is one of their most popular dishes, where you get 200g of meat seared in binchotan butter. Pair that with your pick from their menu of sides, priced at $7 each. The Brussel Sprouts, cooked in garlic butter, are a crowd fave.

11. Kulon


kulon-ambience

One of the more popular street foods in Indonesia is bakmi, a minced meat and noodle dish that’s prepared with chicken or pork. KULON, located along Bali Lane, is one of the places you can get legit bakmi in Singapore, and it doubles as an excellent, wallet-friendly spot for a casual lunch or dinner.

kulon-bakmi-komplit

The small, rustic restaurant seats only 16 diners indoors, and another eight outdoors. They tend to get quite crowded at mealtimes. For the best of what the restaurant has to offer, try their Bakmi Komplit ($13.80), served with all the toppings, including beef balls, minced chicken, and a soya sauce braised egg. They also have bakso noodles and ayam geprek.

12. Abundance 


abundance jalan besar - interior

Taiwanese bistro Abundance has garnered quite the cult following for their Din Tai Fung-style fried rice, dumplings, Taiwanese gua bao and the like. They’ve got one outlet in Redhill, and another in Jalan Besar.

new restaurants june 2021 - abundance

The chill bistro is great for a causal weekday lunch or dinner. You can pair any of their craft beers with their acclaimed fried rice dishes, including the Niu Yolk ($19++), fried in beef fat and served with beef short ribs, or the Mentaiko Fish Fried Rice ($13.90++), served with house-made mentaiko mayo. End off your visit here with their Peanut Ice Cream Roll ($6.90++), a classic Jiufen dessert where ice cream, crushed peanuts, and coriander are all wrapped in thin popiah skin.

13. Una Una


Singapore has a fair few unagi restaurants, but if you’d like an affordable option, try Una Una. The casual restaurant serves up unagi dishes largely priced under $20++, including their hitsumabushi—a Nagoyan dish that sees an unagi don enjoyed four ways. 

una una bugis - flatlay

All the unagi here is freshly prepared, grilled over charcoal, and glazed with their signature tare sauce. If you’d like to splurge a little, try their Unagi Sashimi Gozen ($29.80++), served with a whole eel fillet and salmon sashimi, atop rice.

Visit Un-Yang-Kor-Dai on South Bridge Road for a taste of authentic Isaan fare. Northern Thai cuisine is characterised by a reliance on fresh herbs and spices, layered to create dishes that are simple, but no less flavoured. 


Image credit: Un-Yang-Kor-Dai

Un-Yang-Kor-Dai is as legit as it gets, for the restaurant hails from the Khao Yai National Park in Thailand. Dig into delicious Isaan dishes rarely found in Singapore here, from their UYKD Signature Grilled Chicken (from $15++), marinated in white peppercorn and coriander, as well as their Red Curry with Grilled Chicken, Lychee, Tomato, and Sweet Basil ($18.50++). They’ve also got a Michelin Bib Gourmand nod, making them one of the best Thai restaurants in Singapore.

15. The Coconut Club

Image credit: The Coconut Club

The Coconut Club may serve Singapore’s priciest nasi lemak, but in our books, it is worth it. Their Signature Chicken Nasi Lemak Leg ($21++) is served with organic French chicken, marinated for at least twelve hours, and then fried until the skin is extra crisp. The coconut rice is another standout; it’s oh so lemak thanks to the restaurant using only fresh-pressed coconut milk, prepared with coconuts sourced from family-owned plantations. A delicious, slow-cooked sambal rounds off the dish.

The Bib Gourmand restaurant has two outlets islandwide. If you just want their nasi lemak, head to their Siglap outlet. If you’d like to enjoy family-style Nyonya and Malay dishes, then their Beach Road outlet is where it’s at.

ka-soh-flatlay

What began as a modest pushcart stall during the 1930s has since evolved into a renowned zi char restaurant with a rich 80-year history. Ka-Soh is a heritage eatery celebrated for its classic Cantonese fish soup. Its signature Prawn Paste Chicken (from $16++), also known as har cheong gai, is also celebrated as one of the best in Singapore. When here, don’t skip their Slice Fish Noodles Soup (from $9++), which lives up to the hype and comes with a milky broth that is the result of slow-boiling fish bones for four hours.

The restaurant is no-fuss, no-frills—think homely Chinese restaurant decor with tables that sit four or more.

19. Lechon Republic 


lechon republic - ambience

It’s not the easiest to find quality Filipino roast pork, better as lechon, in Singapore, but thankfully, restaurants like Lechon Republic offer a corrective. The fuss-free eating house roasts their pigs on site each day, so if you swing by early enough, you’ll get to see them on spits, turning over an open flame.

lechon republic - flatlay

The Chopped Lechon Meal ($12.50) is a classic here. It’s simple, but so delicious—diners get chunks of juicy lechon with crackling skin, plain rice, a pork liver sauce known as mang tomas, and a cucumber-shalot pickle. Each set also comes with a drink. Those dining with friends should definitely branch out and try more of the lechon menu available here, with highlights like Lechon Sinigang ($15.50) and Lechon Sisig ($15.50) available too.

20. Cherry & Oak

There are plenty of steak restaurants in Singapore but not nearly enough Muslim-friendly ones. Cherry & Oak, however, is here to close that gap a little. The 100-seater smokehouse specialises in meats smoked with cherrybark oak in a firewood oven. This means all your orders come with a distinctive, smoky aroma that really elevates this from the regular ol’ barbecue. 

cherry and oak interior
Image credit: @cherryoak.sg

They’re best known for their Beef Brisket ($26+), a generous slab of beef served alongside house-made barbecue sauce and a zesty mango salad. Pair that with their Rainbow Sausages ($16+), a platter of four different flavours: beetroot, original, spinach and curry. Aside from meats, the restaurant also has rice and pasta dishes, as well as baby Dutch pancakes for dessert.

Acclaimed Yunnanese restaurant chain Yun Nans has now established an offshoot: YUN NANS Stonepot Fish. This gem takes steamboat to the next level, offering their signature pressure-steamed live fish and a selection of fresh seafood, served in a collagen-infused hotpot broth cooked at the table.

Pair their Collagen Fish Soup ($18++) with your choice of fish, picked straight from their live tanks. We suggest the Live Soon Hock ($8.80++ per 100g)—the sweet and fresh fish pairs excellently with the collagen broth. Aside from their signature stonepot offering, the restaurant has an a la carte menu of Yunnanese sides to enjoy, giving diners a delicious overview of the lesser-known Chinese cuisine.

The Spherical Olives ($1.50++ each), for instance, is a celebration of elBulli’s molecular gastronomy legacy, and is a delightful starting point for the meal.

58. Firangi Superstar

Firangi Superstar is a mod-Indian restaurant that doubles as a fantastical ode to India itself. The gorgeous restaurant is designed to look like a movie set, with four kitschy, themed dining areas that are a homage to emblematic Indian locales, albeit with a firangi, AKA foreigner’s touch. Head chef Thiru Gunasakaran, a Spago alumni, is the brains behind the fun, flavour-forward menu here.

You get small plates that reinvent bites such as the aloo gobi, or combine the Mexican elote with punchy Indian spices. Larger mains are made for sharing, with highlights including Mirchi Mole ($96++) of grilled Iberico and green chilli tadka, or The Bengal Bake Off ($108++), a salt-baked seabass dressed up with kasundi cream. The weekend brunch here is also worth checking out!

59. Fiz

Malay cuisine very rarely gets the fine dining take in Singapore, but thankfully, there’s Fiz to remedy that. The restaurant was founded by Marco Pierre White and Jean Gorges alum, Hafizzul Hashim, and is housed in Tanjong Pagar.

The menu here is a love letter to Southeast Asian ingredients and Chef Hashim’s roots. It changes every three to six months, but is typically served as a combination of both a degustation menu and communal plates, so it’s best to dine with loved ones. Their current six-course menu is priced at $188++ per person.

Acclaimed Chef Shinji Kaneska’s Singaporean ventures have been incredibly celebrated by both local diners and the Michelin Guide. The Edo-style sushi joint has its roots in chef Kanesaka’s Ginza venture, and focuses on omakase dining, with seasonal ingredients and the freshest Japanese sashimi put on display.

Lunch starts at $280++ for the omakase option, and dinner at $350++. If you prefer to come just for their sushi, you can get the Setsugetsuka Sushi Course Sets, starting from $100 for nine pieces of sushi, though this is only available at their Carlton Hotel establishment.
