Singapore is a city close to my heart. We lived there for a good 2 years, straight after the wedding. This was also where I gave birth to my first child. So it is no wonder then I love coming back to this city every now and then – to relive our first few years as a family, to meet up with good friends both old and new, and of course, to eat, eat and just EAT.

Looking back, I am surprised why I have never written extensively about Singapore on the blog! So allow me now to share with you some of my favorite dishes from some of my favorite restaurants in Singapore (in no particular order) :

1. ESQUINA – a modern Spanish tapas bar located in the heart of Chinatown and led by no less than Michelin starred chef Jason Atherton.

2. BURNT ENDS – a modern Australian barbecue place that offers comfort food in a hip and casual setting. They are most known for their Burnt Ends’ Sanger,  which is probably the most delicious pulled pork sandwich I have ever tried!

3. PIZZERIA MOZZA – Celebrity Chef Mario Batali’s pizza place in Singapore has always been named as one of Singapore’s best casual dining places. Almost everything on the menu is good but it is their thick and crusty pizzas that are the definite must-trys!

4. BISTRO MODERNE – another celebrity chef who has made a home in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands is New York-based award winning chef Daniel Boulud.  His Bistro Moderne offers a delicious mix of French bistro food and American menu staples. He is most famous for his burgers, as he is known to have originated the mouth-watering foie gras burger known on his menu as The Original db Burger.

5. RANG MAHAL – Singapore has an abundance of good Indian restaurants. This one located inside Pan Pacific Hotel  is one of the few fine dining places that I have come to love.  Rang Mahal  serves some of the most authentic and traditional Indian dishes, presented well in a classy, modern setting.

Lamb Chop Tandoori and Seekh (Ground Lamb) Kebab

2014-07-20 22.24.38

Rich and spicy Indian food is best paired with a glass of your favorite red!

6. BRASSERIE LES SAVEURS – This is my favorite place in Singapore for a good Sunday Champagne Brunch. Located inside the beautiful St. Regis hotel,  this restaurant on the ground floor will take your breath away with its beauty and splendor, while filling your stomach with the best hors d’ oeuvres and freshest seafood in the city.

7. JUMBO SEAFOOD RESTAURANT – What’s a trip to Singapore without a trip to the East Coast  to eat the world-renowned Singapore crabs? There are many names you will hear as to who has the best crabs in the city, but since I’ve only been to Jumbo (a number of times), this is the one I can recommend. This is no fine dining place, but rather a very low-key, casual, outdoor restaurant by the sea serving affordable, freshly made live seafood dishes cooked the Singaporean way.

Please take it from me : DO NOT leave Singapore without having their city’s famous crabs :

    I just admire how you put a lot of class and novelty in all you do. I learn alot from your food/travel blogs. I hope you chronicle Seoul as well so i can see you in the flesh! Haha I know Seoul is not included in the Michelin list (w/c is so sad) but there are noteworthy restaurants here as well.
    P.s. Super love your IG posts!

      Thank you for your kind words! 🙂 I have been to Seoul a couple of years ago and I agree with you that it is as exciting as other Asian cities. And the food scene is just as great as those with Michelin starred restaurants. I do hope to visit Seoul soon — and hopefully that’s within this year! Thanks for all the support. 🙂

    Hello Grace! After a hectic past 4 months moving and settling in, and the recent holiday season, time to see ( taste) more of what SG has to offer. Thanks for sharing these. Very helpful! We’ve been to just 2 of them and will try the others.

    Warm regards,
    Christine (& Mario)
