Set in Raffles Hotel Singapore, La Dame de Pic’s elegant yet inventive menu is a nod to three-Michelin-starred French chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s culinary hallmarks of aromatic complexity and powerful flavour combinations.

You’ll be dining within the charming Raffles Hotel Singapore, with its signature French doors, tall Victorian columns and precious silverware from the World War Two era.

4. Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro – one Michelin star
Nestled in the heart of Orchard Road, Shisen Hanten by Chen Kentaro is a must-visit for all with a penchant for bold flavours. It’s the Japanese Sichuan restaurant group’s first overseas outpost and the product of a culinary legacy passed down from generations. Founded by the late Chen Kenmin – known as Japan’s father of Sichuan cuisine – the Shisen Hanten brand is now helmed by third-generation chef Chen Kentaro who brings first-hand experience from the Sichuan province.
Expect a modern take on the cuisine, with an explosion of seven fundamental flavours: sour, spicy, hot, sweet, bitter, aromatic and salty. Whet your appetite with Shisen Hanten’s five signature appetisers and foie gras chawanmushi with crab roe soup, before tucking into exquisite mains. Our top picks are the turbot fish, Sichuan-style stir-fried Kurobuta pork and signature mapo doufu – think soft tofu cubes simmered in a fermented black bean sauce that is aged three years in the Pidu district of Chengdu, topped with mouth-numbing peppercorns. Finally, end your flavour expedition on a sweet note with the refreshing coconut fantasy – almond pudding topped with bird’s nest, served in a young coconut.
