2. DON HO Social Kitchen & Bar

If you’re looking for a spot with shared dining and fresh tropical cocktail creations, DON HO it is! Something about the tropical décor with lots of lush greenery makes you feel relaxed and as though you’re in another country.

While there’s quite a wide selection here, we recommend trying the Avocado Smashed Bruschetta with Feta Cheese for a light brunch item that’s great for sharing. Check out our full review here.

3. Greendot

A personal favourite of mine, Greendot has always been my go-to place for vegetarian meals. So, when we found out they were offering more items on the menu, we were sold! Greendot has recently unveiled brand-new dishes available exclusively at Paya Lebar and VivoCity outlets. If you haven’t already tried their set meals yet, we recommend going for their latest item first – Laksa Hotpot ($35.90) (ideal to share between 3-4 pax).

4. OMOOMODON

Can’t decide between Japanese or Korean cuisine for your next meal? Well at OMOOMODON, you can enjoy the best of both worlds with their Korean-Japanese fusion concept inspired by donburi bowls. There’s quite a wide selection of ingredients and pre-designed dons: 18 to be exact, with really quirky names like ‘Chick Chat’ (chicken karaage, multi-grain rice, salad) and their newest, ‘Holy Cow’ – all made easy to order at their self-service and ordering process.

The ‘Holy Cow’ was indeed our favourite, a hearty bowl of waygu beef, bulgogi marinated in soy garlic; sweet and spicy beef balls, and topped with an onsen egg with tobikko for extra creaminess. Where else can you get such a nice twist of flavours?

5. Orchid Roast Fish

Fresh, succulent fish and 3D viewing? Orchid Roast Fish is Singapore’s first 3D Holographic restaurant known for its speciality roast fish. With quite a number of options, we took the staffs’ recommendations and opted with the Seabass 金目鲈 ($38). It was quite fresh without any fishy odour and had less bones which we preferred! If you like something spicy, try out their Pickled Chili (温柔泡椒) flavour.

Besides a choice of fish dishes, Orchid Roast Fish also offers a ton of seafood options like their Seafood Crab & Lobster Hotpot ($68). The pot is abundantly filled with fresh prawns, clams, scallops, baby lobsters and crab, in mildly spicy mala broth.

6. Roast Paradise

If there’s something that would make us come back to a place besides the food, is the good and honest service. We met with Kai, one of the co-owners of Roast Paradise and their Char Siew is seriously one of a kind.

Their Char Siew is really different, nicely roasted in the KL-style! It tastes almost like Bak Kwa, a little charred on the ends while retaining the juicy flavours in the centre. I think we’ve found our new favourite Char Siew Rice stall!

7. Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ

With so many Korean BBQ places out there, freshness and wide variety is right up our alley. We checked out Seorae Korean Charcoal BBQ over at their second outlet in JEM and absolutely had our cravings for Korean food satisfied! For those who prefers variations of tastes can try the 2-in-1 Jjigae, with a choice of two Korean broths! We tried both the non-spicy Bulgogi & Gochujang (red chilli) and definitely prefer something less spicy to go with our meats, side servings of noodles, mushrooms and vegetables.

Besides the hotpot, feast on grilled Hangjeongsal (grilled pork jowl) available at your seating area or at the dedicated grilling station.

Besides ice cream, there’s also a fine assortment of homemade desserts like the Lemon Popsicle Tart ($8++) – served in the shape of a popsicle and coated with white chocolate!

For those who prefers fancy Instagram-worthy desserts, try the Galaxy Tart ($8++) – a beautiful white chocolate mirror glaze and filled with chocolate mousse, raspberry jelly and chocolate crumble. The safe yet sinful treat is none other than the Rich Man’s Chocolate Cake ($8++).

9. Tocha Bistro

Tocha-Bistro_Spicy-Mid-WingsMove over overpriced drinks in CBD, a new joint Tocha Bistro in the outskirts of town is here to stay! We chanced upon this quaint little bistro located along the offbeat Lavender area and instantly felt at home. This bistro offers both an indoor and alfresco seating alongside a wide selection of Western food, bar bites and even better – a set of drinks at really affordable prices. Check out our full review here where we give you the low down on our top 5 items you have to including the Spicy Mid Wings, Carnivore Platter, Double Rock Burger, Grilled Cod Fish and Tocha Top Shells!

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse by Wolfgang Zwiener is finally here on our shores! Having been in some of Asia’s most vibrant cities and globally renowned and visited by many Hollywood stars in the US, this family-run restaurant from New York brings over 5 decades of experience with steakhouses, and offers the very best, top quality dry-aged beef that’s char-broiled to perfection.

Perfect for all celebrations, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse Singapore takes luxe dining straight to their meats. Their tender sub-primal cuts of prime USDA Black Angus Meat is truly something else, aged for 28 days and the result is a tenderized, juicy and deep concentrated flavour – perfect pairing with some German Potatoes and Creamed Spinach. Besides their melt-worthy meats, other must-trys include their Seafood Platter with jumbo shrimp, fresh Maine Lobster and crabmeat!
