With so much to see, eat, and do in Holland Village, there’s no denying that it’s one of our favourite ‘hoods in Singapore (we know we’re not alone on this).

Inside Raven, Singapore

Restaurant review: Raven

Comforting North and South American cuisine is spiked with Asian ingredients at this slick new restaurant and bar

Descend into CHIJMES’s freshly-madeover basement to find this sexy restaurant, a new venture by the team behind House of Dandy. Open only from evenings, Raven’s indoor dining area is sleek and luxe, with wood-and-leather booth seating and a handsome black marble bar greeting you as you stroll in. A baby grand piano covered in Monopoly Man motifs and colourful spray paint, the work of enigmatic street artist Alec Monopoly, injects a pop of playful grittiness to the space – we’re told that more urban artwork will be hoisted onto the walls soon.


One of Singapore's national dishes: The Chilli Crab (Credits: Jumbo Seafood)

Where to eat chili crab

Singapore’s number one culinary export to the world is none other than chili crab, and here's where to find the best versions in the city

Singapore’s number one culinary export to the world is none other than chili crab, and this has practically cemented the status of chili crab as one of our unofficial national dishes. Said to be invented by Madam Cher Yam Tian in the 1950s, the original chili crab was stir-fried with bottled chili sauce and bottled tomato sauce, then sold from a pushcart. Today, the version of chili crab we know consists of sambal, vinegar, tomato paste, and egg – an “improved” recipe by chef Hooi Kok Wah, one of the four “heavenly kings” of Chinese cuisine in the 1960s. Patronise these zi char restaurants in Singapore and for the best renditions of the ever-popular chilli crab.

Kaiserhaus’s repertoire of authentic, hearty Austrian fare and old-world decor will transport you straight into the opulent streets of the Habsburg Empire

Living in a culinary capital like Singapore, we can literally eat our way around the world in our tiny red dot, whether it’s sizzling Spanish tapas or the freshest sashimi from Japan. But of course, there is certainly room for the more obscure. Kaiserhaus at swish new mall Capitol Piazza gives us a taste of just that, and we’re super stoked for a chance to up our foodie knowledge on the traditional cuisine of the Habsburg Empire.  (more…)

Modern asian restaurant and bar CATO looks set to be a hot spot for dinner and pre-party drinks in Chinatown, Singapore

Taking over what used to be the first OCBC Bank and the now-closed restaurant-bar The Vault, CATO in Chinatown has great interior bones, and the brains behind this new dining concept sure knew how to its charm with high-glass doors, motif tiles, ebony wood tables, and rough-hewn brick walls. If looks matter, then CATO killed with a look that is refined industrial-chic.

The communal dining area in Lollapalooza

Restaurant review: Lollapalooza

It may look like the goody-two-shoes sister of the rebellious, grungy Lolla, but the menu will take you to places you’ve never been

The first thing you notice about Lollapalooza on Keong Saik Road – if you’re familiar with local sister restaurant Lolla – is how different it is from its older sibling; the dining room is much bigger, brighter and more polished, with marble-topped tables, mint-green leather booths, brushed wooden chairs and copper pendant light fixtures.  (more…)

Give us three of Boruto's umami uni pasta, please!

Restaurant Review: Boruto

This new Japanese restaurant is both a tapas bar and a spiffy sake izakaya

Dimly-lit and furnished with huge sake barrels from floor to ceiling, Boruto reminded us of Tokyo’s upper-class tachinomi (standing) bars, except there are seats here, of course. Founded by Patrick Tan, owner of one of the best robatayaki restaurants in Singapore, Tamashii Robataya, this new sake bar (located along South Bridge Road) has already garnered a steady following, most of whom are Japanese expats.

Keong Saik Guide - The Study with Audi A1 Sportback

Keong Saik's Must-Knows

The formerly sleazy Keong Saik road is buzzing with hip residents who have been drawing the city’s scenesters in droves

It’s hard to imagine that Keong Saik Road in Singapore, now buzzing with some of the city’s hottest tables including Restaurant Ember, Potato Head Folk, Esquina, was once a prominent red light district peppered with brothels back in the ’60s. With a new wave of exciting openings this year, we knew we had to revisit the gentrified street – in a spanking new, red-hot Audi A1 Sportback, no less – to map out the coolest residents in the ‘hood, from restaurants and bars to shops and hotels. You’ve gotta hit a few of these top picks (at least once!)

The skinny on Skinny Pizza

There is much to love about Skinny Pizza and their low-carb, crispy, delicious treats

There was a time when we prayed to the food gods for sinful, guilt-free foods. That’s right – fried chicken, desserts, burgers, sans the calories. Ridiculous as it sounds, we once hoped to have our cake and eat it too. Well, turns out that the idea isn’t that absurd, thanks to Skinny Pizza and their low-carb, oh-so-light creations. Obviously, we were sold. (more…)

Wanton Noodle Bar; Amoy Street, Singapore

Restaurant review: Wanton Noodle Bar

Copper Singapore restaurant review

Restaurant review: Copper

The gin-focused cocktail bar in Chinatown has a dining room on the second floor for carnivores with an appetite for fine meats

Copper knows the way to our food-and cocktail-loving hearts, with Negroni on tap (!), to-die-for gin concoctions, excellent bar bites, and a swanky interior that looks like a setting of a steampunk novel. But it’s not just a hip, noteworthy drinkery anymore: the six-month old establishment has opened its intimate 20-seat restaurant on the second floor, and meat is (almost) on every plate.  (more…)

The Lokal Review | Restaurants in Singapore | Honeycombers Singapore

A Lokal Dinner

Everyone knows Aussie-inspired café The Lokal does an awesome brunch, but did you know they do an equally awesome dinner, too?

One fine evening, we decided to pop by and order up a feast. Our starters of choice were the deep-fried ham hock croquettes, cauliflower three-ways, and the (almost obligatory) truffle fat chips. We loved how the savoury ham hock croquettes were fried to perfection and surprisingly light (they went extremely well with the refreshing side of celraic remoulade), and not to mention how the truffle parmesan fat chips just hit the spot, but what really impressed us was the cauliflower three-ways, with ricotta and almonds. It was a delight switching between the vegetable forms (fried, mashed, and pickled, the latter being the most interesting with its salty-acidic notes) – a party in our mouths, basically.  (more…)

New Restaurant Alert: Soi 60
