Don & Tori is a modern Japanese restaurant that sets the bar pretty high for dons, makis, and yakimono (grilled or pan-fried) items as long as you’re not a purist. It’s a serene enclave in the Central Business District that joins the heavyweights on Tras Street.
A quiet lunch crowd trickled in when they opened soon after noon into the comfortable fusion vibes of old meets new, East meets West.
Their live sushi bar will entertain you as you watch your orders being assembled and made. There’s almost something for everyone, vegetarians and non. It’s hard to say which dishes make up the highlights of this place because every one we tried were show stoppers in terms of both presentation and taste.
The Shilin-inspired Night Market opens to the public for two weekends (from 19 to 21 April & 26 to 28 April 2019) at [email protected], Singapore Turf Club.
This Taiwanese-themed street festival is held at a 200 000 ft² space with over 300 stalls and different vendors segmented into four zones: Eat, Shop, Play, Fun. Despite there being enough nosh, fashion, lifestyle and design goods to see, the event was generally underwhelming.
Brought to you by Invade Industry who also hosted Artbox Singapore and other flea markets in Singapore, you would expect the event to be better organised. The queue at most of the stalls are between 30 to 90 minutes. And there’s a long snaking line just to enter Shilin-inspired Night Market.
Just to be clear, the Shilin Singapore is a Shilin-inspired Night Market concept and not the actual Shilin Night Market from Taiwan.
