Where to find delectable food in Raffles Place
1. Vibe Bistro
Classic dishes aside, Vibe Bistro also puts local spins on pasta dishes for a unique twist. We’re talking hae bee hiam linguine, bak chor tagliatelle, and pork rendang cutlet. This spot doesn’t skimp on the portions either. If you’re particularly famished, the lunch upgrade sets you up with a main, starter, and drink. Swing by after work to sample its array of draught beer and wines to unwind from the work week.

If you’re itching for a poke fix, consider stopping by Pokomi to get your cravings satiated. The team is all about fresh and well-balanced meals that won’t break the bank. Besides salmon and tuna, protein options include prawn, chicken, and tofu. And if you’re planning on going low-carb, choose the salad or cauliflower rice base! Top tip: pick the miso mayo and make sure you get it torched for that added smokey flavour.

We couldn’t do a guide to the best food inRaffles Place without including this speakeasy. A “fitting” at this unassuming spot means settling in with a killer cocktail menu and top notch service. Some of the signature drinks include funky ingredients like blue cheese, smoked duck fat washed whisky, seaweed, and even wasabi. Don’t miss out on Asian-influenced bar snacks either! We’re eyeing the spicy octopus tteobokki and Peking duck taco.

6. Arcade Fish Soup
Ah, fish soup. It is the quintessential lunch of choice for many who work in the CBD area. It’s quick, often cheap, and always delicious whether you get it with or without milk. The OG that we always turn to is Arcade Fish Soup for its flavourful broth and fresh fish. Be warned though, the queues can get really long at this spot. So if you have the option to dip out of the office early, take the chance!

7. Brotherbird Bakehouse
Croissants make the world go ‘round, and we especially love the ones at Brotherbird Bakehouse. The bakes here are oh-so buttery and come in both sweet and savoury flavours to curb any craving. The iconic rocher croissant is a mainstay, but keep your eye out for new toppings that change every month. Follow along with its social media to find out the flavours on rotation and whether they’re all sold out to avoid disappointment.
Brotherbird Bakehouse, B1-23, 30 Raffles Place, Singapore 048622
This rooftop Japanese resto is where you go for killer sashimi, unique rolls, and uber delicious donburis. Head to the restaurant to enjoy rolls topped with foie gras, wagyu, and kurobuta pork. Don’t forget to enjoy happy hour specials or original cocktails like the Geisha-rita and Naughty Kopi. Psst: we hear the bottomless brunch is the perfect way to unwind during the weekend.
