Unless you’re made of gold, you’ll eventually bruise your budget if you attempt to splurge at every top-tier restaurant you can find in Singapore – and in this tiny foodie nation, we have lots of them. But if you’re not ready to go on a spending spree yet, and you’d like to test the waters before you go all out on that romantic date or high-brow celebratory occasion, then the Singapore Restaurant Week might be something you’d wanna sit up for. After all, what’s more enticing than affordable fine dining, right?
The concept is simple (yet sophisticated) enough: over a hundred fine dining restaurants participate in this foodie affair from 22 to 30 October, offering three-course set lunches and set dinners at $28+++ and $38+++ respectively (or $40+++ and $58+++ if the resto’s bagged a prestigious DiningCity Star). Following its previous edition back in March with a theme titled “Feasts Of The Ocean”, this 13th edition of Singapore Restaurant Week takes tastes to the extreme with “Sugar and Spice; Everything’s Nice!”. So expect seasonal ingredients and robust flavours galore in these world-class dishes, executed with the impeccable techniques of elite chefs all over the island.
The diversity is consistently drool-worthy – returning participating restaurants include Justin Quek’s Sky on 57 that’s known for playful yet posh mod-Sin cuisine, Zafferano for Italian, OCF for French, Wooloomooloo for Australian steaks and countless others. And just like every year, diners can always count on new participants entering the fray. The 13th edition’s newcomers include Spago and db Bistro (top image) from Marina Bay Sands, Cook & Brew at The Westin Singapore, and one of our favourite restaurants that shakes up Cantonese cuisine, Mitzo. So whether you’re yearning to give that coveted restaurant a shot, or you simply like a good ol’ deal, you should definitely start clearing your schedule for the Singapore Restaurant Week. The question is: how many reservations will you make?
