One of the newer additions to Sunshine Plaza’s slew of hidden food gems is Steakville, a humble hole-in-a-wall that serves up some seriously good steak as well as a myriad of other enticing mains.
Striving to bring the “farm to table” dining experience, Steakville sources their beef from specific farms, ensuring that only the best quality beef is chosen. Costing only S$15 for a hanger steak, we were beyond impressed given the quality of it. On top of their food, they also serve solid artisanal cuppas as well as an array of cocktails.
Located within walking distance from NAFA and Kaplan, this new steak joint is definitely a great hangout spot for students as well given its location and affordable prices.
Despite the vast array of cuisines available in our saturated food scene, the one we always find ourselves returning to and the very same one that delivers comfort like no other, is Chinese food.
From the concept of communal dining around a table with a lazy susan right smack in the middle to expertly executed dishes that never fail to delight—whether it’s a steamed fish or even hearty double-boiled soups—Chinese dishes are what we consider the truest form of comfort food.
Cantonese, Hokkien, Teochew or even the tastes of Sze Chuan, it doesn’t matter—they’re all darn delicious to us. If you are ready to dive into authentic Chinese cooking, here is our guide to 31 best Chinese restaurants in Singapore.
Set for us to reminisce the olden days and for the youth to delve deeper into Singapore’s past, Chinatown’s Mid-Autumn Festival is back again this year, bigger, better and brighter than ever.
From 8 Sep to 8 Oct 2018, head over to Chinatown in Singapore to catch a glimpse of exceptional art pieces, get a taste of nostalgic delights and feast your eyes on a myriad of performances—all of which depict the olden days back in the 1950s and 1960s.
Donned with 1,288 beautifully lit accordion paper lanterns and over 160 figurines showcasing the yesteryears of Singapore, including a 10-metre tall centrepiece that resembles a Chinese Junk ship, the streets of Chinatown is where you should be heading on upcoming nights.
Here is what you can expect at the much anticipated Mid-Autumn Festival in Chinatown.
Evoking the same archetypal atmosphere of a classic high-end steakhouse in New York—from their mahogany furnishings to the sounds of Sinatra playing in the background—Morton’s The Steakhouse beautifully encapsulates the classic, speakeasy-style of American fine dining.
This steakhouse juggernaut in Mandarin Oriental impresses in more ways than one, from the impeccable standards upheld by their service staff to their array of phenomenal meat and seafood offerings. Every detail—the honest selection of succulent, wet-aged USDA Prime steaks, fresh seafood, extensive and award-winning wine list etc—attributes to why we absolutely love dining here.
The signature orders here include the wet-aged Prime Ribeye Steak and the colossal 48-ounce Porterhouse but for non-meat eaters, they also serve up a solid range of fresh seafood such as Maine Lobster, Honey-Balsamic Glazed Ora King Salmon and the must-try Seared Cod with Romesco Sauce that you can opt to have off their seasonal menu.
It’s easy to feel intimidated by a high-end restaurant like Morton’s especially so in all its classy, mahogany-clad glory, but truly, there is so much more to this steakhouse institution that goes far beyond just being a destination for business meetings and special occasions. With their stellar line-up of house classics coupled with their ever-changing seasonal menu, there’s bound to be something to tickle even the most discerning of palates.
Green eats, healthy eats, we all want it all, but sometimes it’s just too much effort to prepare our own meals every day. And more often than not, the foods we tend to consume as a result of limited time, are usually the ones loaded with unhealthy amounts of fat.
Instead of reaching for those pre-packed vending machine salads or the ones that are sold at commercial cafes, make life easy and more exciting by heading down to these amazing salad bars in Singapore.
Who said healthy food, let alone a big bowl of vegetables, was boring?
