The long wait is finally over! Hong Kong’s famous Mak’s Noodle has just opened its very first overseas outpost, and it is in Singapore no less!
Fellow discerning foodies will get to enjoy Mak’s Noodle’s signature wanton noodle soup and mouthwatering classic dishes at wallet-friendly prices. Sitting on the ground level of The Centrepoint, Mak’s Noodle in Singapore brings you the familiar authentic taste of Hong Kong with its concise menu of noodles and beef brisket.
If you are still confused by what we are talking about here, Mak’s Noodle is one of the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred eateries. It is well loved by food connoisseurs from all over the world, who return regularly for the restaurant’s legendary wanton noodles.
Previously from Wasabi Tei, Mitsuba and Chikuwa Tei, Chef Peter Teo is no stranger in the local food scene. Despite his notorious reputation as a food nazi, he has always been known for serving excellent Japanese food.
Kaiware Japanese Restaurant at TripleOne Somerset is his latest venture. It offers a range of Teishoku (S$24 – S$32), Nabe (S$22 – S$35), Sashimi (S$30 onwards), as well as a pretty affordable 8-course Omakase set (S$58++/pax), but the only reason why we made a trip down was to try his famous Chirashi-don.
It has been four years since we wrote our guide on restaurants in Orchard Road and though we update them from time to time, we thought it is high time to re-curate and to introduce a new guide, featuring even more dining places in Singapore’s most famous shopping street.
Options are aplenty and no doubt we are all spoilt for choice, but are they really worth their queues/ price tags/ waiting time? We have friends from overseas who visit Singapore and have limited time on our sunny island, and then we have our locals who do not want to waste their calories unnecessarily.
The next time you head to Orchard Road, you need not face the risk of stepping in to a random diner and not knowing what to expect.
