Snippets: New and Buzzing Singapore Restaurants in October 2017

New Restaurants

Located at Sofitel Singapore City Centre, Racines restaurant offers both French and Chinese cuisine in a spacious and open concept interior. Helmed by Executive Chef Jean-Charles Dubois, Racines literally means “roots” in French, which is the fundamental concept of the all-day restaurant – to stay true to the authenticity of both French and Chinese cuisines. Some of the highlights include the Chargrilled Galician Octopus, Wagyu Beef Cheek and the Pan Fried Local Boneless Frog Legs. [Read more here…]

888 Mookata
Located at Kovan, this Thai-mookata concept is by 2 long-time Mediacorp celebrities, Chor Chow Meng and Dennis Chew. Surprised we were by the quality and freshness of the ingredients here, not the usual we associate with mookata options in Singapore. Be here to enjoy a family meal with over a very hearty thai-styled steamboat, and order some of the satay from a store in the same coffee-shop; perfect meal for the soul! [Read more here…]

Fat Belly at Sugarhaus
Fat Belly only has a rather short menu, with only an option for 2 types of steak – the Flat Iron and Short Rib. Sugarhaus’ alter ego, Fat Belly only start its service after 6pm daily, and diners are limited to the high tables at the back of the restaurant, and you get to enjoy some exclusive side dishes and desserts here.

The Glasshouse Specialty Coffee & Toast Bar
New cafe at Chijmes, and the space is definitely one of the most gorgeous coffee houses that opened in the past year. As the name suggest, it is decked out with glass 3/4 way of the cafe and specially curated greens enhance the environment here. Beans are from Common Man Coffee Roasters, with the bakes from Carpenter and Cook. Simple toast are available from the kitchen too. [Read more here…]

Sea & Blue
Located at Marina Bay Sands, Sea & Blue is an all-day Continental and Korean buffet concept which took over the now defunct Todai. There are about 100 dishes at the buffet line, with special focus on Korean cuisine though there is a wide variety of other International cuisines as well. Some of the more memorable dishes I tried from the buffet line include the pork belly in spicy gojuchang marinade from the Korean live station, sashimi and sushi from the Seafood station and the crispy suckling pig from the Hot Dishes & Noodles. Prices at Sea & Blue are between S$42++ to S$64++ for adults during lunch, and S$58++ to S$68++ for dinner. Children dine at S$22++ to S$26++ at lunch and S$26++ at dinner. [Read more here…]
