Food Scoops: 8 Restaurants To Check Out In Tras Street, Tanjong Pagar

The contemporary Indian grill restaurant is headed by Executive Chef Saurabh Udinia, and is one of my favourite new restaurants in 2021. The industrial chic space is done elegantly and you can’t miss the open-kitchen style concept where the best seats are the counter ones in my opinion. There are 3 fixed menus to choose from, with the most complete being the 9-course Experience tasting menu (S$199++), 8-course Discovery (S$139++) and Vegetarian menus (S$129++). Some of the highlights are the Boneless Wings and Necks, Lobster with Pepper Garlic Butter and Pulled Pork and Gruyère Kulchette. [Read more here…]

Fleur De Sel Le Restaurant 
Chef owner Alexandre Lozachmeur runs this restaurant with his wife, and that itself is quite a romantic notion. That aside, the dining space was revamped in the past year spotting a much brighter dining ambience with floral prints, rattan boards and furniture, an open concept kitchen, all of which add to the pleasant dining ambience. Set menus are available for a journey through France. [Read more here…]

The contemporary Korean restaurant Anju’s name is a Korean term for dishes served with alcohol, and it is the brand’s ideology in redefining a more elegant Korean cuisine experience and break away from the traditional conception of Soju as Korean alcohol. I love the skylight in the glass ceiling, virtue of its shophouse space. The neutral and woody tones used for the finishing also exude an elegant and homely dining ambience. Go for the Hogam Jeon, Yangnyeom Cauliflower and Bossam. [Read more here…]

Hiryu literally means flying dragon, and is helmed by Chef Raymond Tan whom previously held stints at Sushi Jin and Sushi Murakami. The interior of Hiryu is dominated by wooden furnishings, with a subtle hint of a dragon’s silhouette on the side wall. Lunch omakase starts from S$188++ while dinner from S$288++, otherwise there is also an ala carte menu where you will be delighted with dishes like Uni Tempura and Hiryu Premium Don.

Ushidoki Wagyu Kaiseki
This Japanese restaurant specialises in beef kaiseki, where Omakase menu is offered for lunch and dinner (from S$300++). There is only one 7-course lunch menu (S$120++), and one distinct trait of the restaurant is that it uses Ozaki beef from Miyazaki, supposedly the only restaurant in Singapore which carries this breed. [Read more here…]

Torasho Ramen & Charcoal Bar 
Located at a corner of Tras Street, this a modern izakaya restaurant which specialises in charcoal grilled dishes and ramen. The extensive menu spans across appetisers, ramen and robata (grilled items). For drinks, there is also a good selection of sake, shochu and whisky cocktails. The dishes are less traditional Japanese style, but rather it takes on more Southeast Asian elements to appeal more to the region’s palate. [Read more here…]

Baristart Coffee
This popular cafe probably needs no further introduction, where Baristart Coffee is the Hokkaido brand’s first overseas outlet. The cafe is located in a shophouse setting, just a few doors down from Hiryu. Upon entering the cafe, there are counter seats right at the front where you can watch the barista at work. The main dining space has good flow of natural light from the glass ceiling, with a welcoming plant feature wall which adds positively to the ambience. The name of Baristart Coffee is also quite interesting as it stems from three words – barista, start and art. You can’t leave without having the legendary Cream Puff. [Read more here…]
