A place of restoration, Plentyfull serves up honest, hearty food in a market table luncheon spread by day, and by night, it transforms into a modern brasserie that presents an ala carte menu inspired by seasonal, fresh and quality produce.

Yes, it prides itself as a steakhouse with the best-priced bistecca alla fiorentina, or Fiorentina steaks, in town. The last time I had a Fiorentina steak was probably 5 years ago,…

A first of its kind (at least to my knowledge), this boutique sake bar, Kakure, is an extension of omakase powerhouse, Ki-­sho. This 16-seater space provides an intimate first-­hand look into the hidden world of sake – something you can’t quite get yet in Singapore. Many of us would order sake to go with a Japanese…

FYR Cycene Ond Drinc @ Boon Tat Street

An extremely uncommon name for a restaurant, FYR (pronounced as fire) is definitely a character of its own.

You can bet that the first word the…
