88 Market St, #51-02, CapitaSpring 048948

CapitaSpring’s dining establishments are global in scale, and by that we mean they take diners on a culinary journey around the world. Besides Japanese dishes at Oumi and Latin European flavors at Sol and Luna, you won’t be surprised to learn that they also have an experience that will take you to Kaarla. Emphasizing ‘coastal Aussie cuisine’, the restaurant uses seasonal produce, cooked farm-to-table with a bespoke Aussie grill and oven. The salt-dried kangaroo may require some to try, but the clean flavors of the lean meat made it one of our favorite dishes here.


Um Yong Baek

27 Boon Tat St, #01, Singapore 069623

Um Yong Baek

There are a lot more Korean food options outside of Korean BBQ these days, and we all agree. Um Yong Baek, originally from Korea, is popularized for its pork and rice soup, also known as Dwaeji-Gukbap. You will find two versions here, Busan and Milyang, the former being a savory, clear soup that has been boiled for hours and the latter being a thicker, milkier pork bone broth.

Take note that you can only order pork and rice soup for lunch, as they serve Jeju-style K-BBQ for dinner.

2 Cook Street at Maxwell Reserve, Autograph Collection, Singapore 078857


Shikar, inspired by the grand old feasts of Indian royals, is for an opulent evening – think heavily decorated walls, plush seats and all. Here, Chef Jolly uses a mix of techniques and influences to reinterpret nostalgic Indian dishes, serving plates of Blue Swimmer crab rillettes with flying fish caviar and the house’s signature pistachio pink kulfi. Vegetarian friends need not worry either, as you’ll find the classic paneer and addictive crushed corn and fenugreek skewers available for your choosing.


Yeast side

2 Perumal Rd, #01-06, Singapore 218773

Yeast side

Yeast Side is one of the favorite places for pizza in town, so we were exceptionally pleased to know that they opened another location in Farrer Park. Diners will find the menu nearly identical to that of King Albert Park – meaning the full works: pizzas, brunch dishes and beers to wash it all down.

51 Tras Street, Singapore 078990


Tras Street welcomes a new player — Eclipse. The creative space has recently been soft-launched with a stunning interior full of textures and curves, and we live for the aesthetics. As for the menu, diners can choose from exclusive collaboration items like SG Chee Cheong Fun’s Aburi Chee Cheong Fun and Tigerlily Patisserie‘s Muachee Mochi Blondie.

1 Tanglin Rd, #01-06 Rendezvous Hotel, Singapore 247905


There’s nothing more dreamy than the combination of flowers and desserts, and Fleurato aims to take you into that same dreamy landscape. The café here offers botanically influenced desserts and drinks, with treats like the Shirakawa-Go, a plate of rose waffles with fruit and an ice cream of your choice (Honey Lavender and Lychee Rose are good choice). Of course, you can also order gelatos, teas and mocktails à la carte.

The battery

The battery

Muslim cafe The Stack, located at the Stamford Arts Centre, serves the hottest item on the brunch menu these days: sandwiches. The sandos here come in a variety of flavors, including Spam and Egg and Egg (not a typo!), K-Sando, Loaded Gun, and Chicken of the Sea. Besides the sandwiches, they also have some interesting homemade frozen treats like Honey Cereal Milk and Brown Butter Kaya, best served with their Charcoal Waffle Cone or homemade waffles.

163 Tanglin Rd, #01-129/130/131, Singapore 247933


Yantra has reopened with a new dining experience for diners. The contemporary Indian restaurant aims to take diners on a gastronomic adventure across India with a wide range of Indian dishes, including dishes such as Nizam’s Kathi Kebabs from Calcutta, as well as Rajasthani Murg ka Sula, an ancient recipe of barbecued chicken prepared during the royal hunts.
