Forbidden Duck
If you have been a fan of Chef Alvin Leung of Hong Kong Three Michelin-Starred Bo Innovation, you will be excited to know that Chef Alvin has opened his first Singapore restaurant Forbidden Duck at in the heart of CBD at Marina Bay Financial Centre, taking over the space of now-defunct Crystal Jade Prestige. The concept of Forbidden Duck is a contemporary Cantonese restaurant, where the name forbidden is in reference to Forbidden City in Beijing where people are reminded of Peking Duck. [Read more here…]

Restaurant Ibid
Located along North Canal Road, the two weeks old Restaurant Ibid is the brainchild of Chef Woo Wai Leong, a lawyer-in-training turned chef and the first winner of the inaugural MasterChef Asia season. The first thing which I am curious about is the word ibid, which means ‘from the same source’ in Latin, an ideology which form the basis of the inspiration for the dishes here. [Read more here…]

Nude Chill
Going nude expands at Marina One with Nude Chill, the adjacent sister brand of Nude Grill. As compared to Nude Grill, Nude Chill has a more casual setting and a small seating capacity, which is more suited for bar snacks and pre-dinner drinks. That said, it started serving a full lunch and dinner menu, where diners get the option to order from either Nude Chill or Grill menus. [Read more here…]

Clan Cafe
After the closure of Majestic Hotel, I was curious about what would fill its shoes. Finally, the space has been revealed to be Clan Café at ground level, while the rest of the property is part of Straits Clan and is only accessible for members. The lobby space of Clan Café is beautiful, with a spacious setting, wooden communal table and a floral shop which feels like a very chic hotel lobby. [Read more here…]

Qi – House of Sichuan
Another Michelin related dining concept? Located adjacent to Forbidden Duck at Marina Bay Financial Centre, Qi – House of Sichuan hails from Hong Long and has been awarded One Michelin Star for three consecutive years since 2016 in Hong Kong. Helmed by Head Chef Wong Chun Fai, it is also the only Michelin starred Sichuan restaurant on the Michelin guide Hong Kong Macau. [Read more here…]

Ah Tan Wings
Located at one of the newest hawker centres in Singapore, Ah Tan Wings opened to much fanfare last year at Yishun Park Hawker Centre. Raved by many of our fellow food writers, we decided it was time for us to try some unforgettable fried chickens of Ah Tan’s, as the chef likens his store with the phrase “忘不了”. [Read more here…]

The Spot
It seems like the number of new restaurants opening at Marina One is set to  continue, with the latest to open in the mixed development being The Spot. Located right opposite Pizza Express at ground level of Marina One East Tower, The Spot is a multi-concept space by 1855 F&B (which also owns Wakanui Grill Dining Singapore) that comprises an all-day dining, café, restaurant, bar and an accompanying cigar lounge.

The Gyu Bar
I love yakiniku but when it comes to options in Singapore, there aren’t many noteworthy ones around. Meet The Gyu Bar, a three months old upscale Japanese yakiniku restaurant located in the Novotel and Mercure Hotels at Stevens Road enclave. The team behind The Gyu Bar includes the founder of The Travelling C.O.W. (Chef On Wheels) and Chef Tomoo Kimura of the eponymous Japanese sushi restaurant at Palais Renaissance.Address: 30 Stevens Road, #01-08 (Entrance located outside of Mercure Hotel), Singapore 257840

New Steamboat Concept at Eat at Seven
Ding Xian Hot Pot is amongst the latest steamboat restaurant to open in Singapore at Eat at Seven. Despite opening within the Japanese enclave, perhaps the only Japanese influence here is its Blazing Magma Soup option, which is a Japanese Spicy White Miso soup base. Catering to a varied crowd, the soup bases here gives each diner a unique choice depending on your craving for the day. The most popular of which seems likely to be the Blazing Magma Soup, which is a Japanese Spicy White Miso Soup. Other selections include Sichuan Spicy Mala Soup, Tom Yam Soup and Clear Soup.
