Established in 1992, Orchard Hotel Singapore’s signature restaurant Hua Ting has built a firm reputation as one of the top Cantonese fine dining restaurants in Singapore. Many spirits were shaken at the news of its closure some months ago but finally, after an extensive four-month facelift, Hua Ting Restaurant returns with a sophisticated new look and an improved menu to match.
At the helm of this grande dame is Masterchef Chung Lap Fai, and along with his team of veteran Chinese chefs, a brand new menu is introduced—one that aims to impart traditional flavours in a contemporary fashion. Look forward to a myriad of intriguing new dishes and creative tea-and-food pairing menus alongside the restaurant’s signatures and crowd-pleasers, all plated and presented in a sleek, artistic fashion.
New to Hua Ting Restaurant’s menu is their Smoked Peking Duck infused with Aged Pu-Erh served with Yuzu Sauce. Aromatic, succulent and everything you could ever want in a Peking duck dish (and more), it is one of those dishes that you’ll find yourself hankering over for days.
We are definitely loving Hua Ting Restaurant even more than we already did!
Barnacles at Customs House is a popular after-work haunt that offers a medley of gourmet grub as well as a stellar view of the Marina Bay skyline. When the sun begins to set and the lights from the surrounding buildings begin to illuminate the night sky, there truly is nothing grander to marvel at.
Besides the awesome view, here is where diners can indulge in both inventive cocktails and top-notch fare. Choose your poison from an eclectic range of beers from around the world, signature cocktails, and a stunning selection of gin.
Top the experience off with Barnacles’ array of mouthwatering grub that comes either as full-on mains or small plates. Whatever it is you fancy, just know that when it comes to food, Barnacles is not one to skimp on flavour.

There is a constant debate between the East-siders and the West-siders on which side of the island is the best. Growing up, you would have friends who live at the far ends of Singapore.

The East of Singapore is dotted with interesting hot spots and amazing food locations that are more than enough to make the West-siders jealous. Not convinced?

Although many have heard of gluten-free dining, some may not entirely appreciate what gluten-free dining encompasses. For the uninitiated, a gluten-free diet is one that strictly excludes gluten i.e. a mixture of proteins present in wheat and related grains, such as barley, rye and oat.
While Singapore is a food paradise, it may seem difficult to find places which offer gluten-free options especially when everything is so rich and sinful. Put aside your preconceived notions because there are dining establishments in Singapore which offer gluten-free options which do not scrimp on the quality or taste of their dishes.

The recent launch of the Singapore Michelin Guide has seen 27 restaurants being bestowed the honourable star(s).
Sure, we are extremely happy for the chosen ones, but there are still a couple of dining establishments that are no less deserving of the Michelin star and we only wished they were given the recognition too. These places are equally reputable and definitely regarded as Singapore’s best restaurants, and we are sure many share our sentiments on this.
While the Michelin star(s) is a testimony to a restaurant’s success, it does not necessarily mean that any restaurants without it actually pales in comparison. From modern Australian barbecue restaurant Burnt Ends, Imperial Treasure Fine Chinese Cuisine to award-winning Tippling Club, here are 11 Best Restaurants in Singapore That Do Not Have Michelin Stars.
This post is slightly late. I had wanted to share this in January, but I was so caught up with work and travelling last month that I did not have the chance to sit down and review my year of eating.
I had many exceptional meals last year, which makes it difficult to pick my ten favourite dining experiences. As I reflected back on the places that I have eaten at over the last 12 months, the meals that left an impression and came to mind were because of the company. The best meals are often not the ones at expensive and fanciful restaurants, but the ones that you share with good friends.
Here are the ten best meals that I had in 2012.
