He favours food that is crafted from a memory or sometimes, even an emotion – shuffling you between the past and future with every bite. Tuk Tuk Viethai Cuisine serves Thai and Vietnamese inspired food. Their menu changes every few weeks to keep things refresh and to ensure variety and uniqueness to set them apart from other similar restaurant concepts. We tried the Stew Beef Pho which came with generous thin slabs of succulent beef. The broth was light yet flavoursome, which made this noodle dish very enjoyable. Now you can have it for only $1!

2. Grab the Chicken Katti Roll from Chit Chaat Chai
This restaurant’s name originated from the punning of English word, ‘chit-chat’ for conversation and the Hindi word, ‘chaat’ which refers to a variety of snacks. “Chai”, as everyone already know, refers to a hot cup of Indian tea that owners of this restaurant hope to add a fitting beverage for customers to quench their thirst. Entwining traditional flavours from North India with the snack-bar atmosphere of the West, this restaurant aims to reinvent Indian street food in Singapore. Our first bite of the Chicken Katti Roll gave an explosion of flavours in our mouth. It packed a good punch, which made this dish very satisfying.

Kush is short for ‘Kushiyaki’, which means grilled meat and vegetables on skewers. Kush is the first to introduce ModSin-inspired charcoal grill skewers and rice bowls concept in Singapore. The Chicken Curry Bowl is complemented by an onsen egg, celebrating Singaporeans’ infectious love for runny yolks. It is also accompanied by sambal kangkong, giving the dish a spicy kick. The curry features strong coconut flavours, peppered with a hint of nostalgia and a touch of modernity. Chef Deming hopes to preserve local traditions and food, as well as, present humble yet amazing local ingredients to the world.

4. Drink the Bak Kut Teh Soup Set, with rice and 3 sides from Soon Huat
Behind this bowl of Bak Kut Teh is the inspiring story of Jabez Tan, who once spent 12 years in jail. As Soon Huat is a social enterprise, 80% of workers employed here are ex-offenders, as Jabez wants to help them reintegrate back into the community. Soon Huat Bak Kut Teh stands out from the rest as its specialty is the pig innards that come with the full bodied broth that gives a slight sweet aftertaste. Jabez explained that Argentinean pork is used so customers get to taste its natural sweetness and juices. This is the ideal comforting dish on rainy days.

These fresh local produce are supplemented with authentic Spanish ingredients, like thinly sliced jamon iberico and harlequin olives. The Chef put a lot of thought into curating flavours, textures and presentations in order not to neglect the soul and essence of each dish. The highlight of Portico Platos is their paellas, which are cooked right in front of you. Limited portions are prepared each day so you get the highest quality and freshness. Their signature seafood paella consisted of a huge prawn, mussels, squids and fresh fish. Each mouthful whet our appetite for more and we had such a gratifying meal.

Later on, this entrepreneurial couple decided to set up Food Anatomy, with the concept of “design meets culinary”. They believe that dishes should not only be tasty but aesthetically pleasing as well, hence they sell layered food in blocks. We tried Cold Soba, Organic Lasagna and Pork Cheek with Fragrant Rice and found the soba jelly very unique.

8. Enjoy a slice of Fat Samurai Pizza from The World is Flat
Originally from the US, Howard grew up in the shadow of Disney World, so the hospitality industry always beckoned to him. He first opened Standing Sushi Bar in 2009 before setting up Tanuki Raw, Shinkansen and running Liberty Spirits Asia and The Secret Mermaid. The World is Flat is Howard’s latest establishment, going into a “revamped” pizza concept, inspired by Californian deep-dish pizzas, fushioned with Japanese tastes. We had a humongous slice of Fat Samurai, which consisted of duck confit, bacon, prawn, burnt onions, smashed US beef, roasted cabbage, Konbu mayo, balsamic Okonomiyaki sauce, crispy bonito flakes, mozzarella and brie, atop an Umami charcoal crust. Honestly, one slice can be shared among 2-3 people as the toppings are very generous. Moreover, with such a deep crust, if can be too heavy if you savour it alone.

9. Finger Lickin’ Good 6-piece Chicken Wings Set with rice/fries and drink from Two Wings

Using fatter wings from Brazil, Jeremy marinates these wings in a secret formula overnight. Hence, you can smell the distinct aroma of sesame oil for the original-flavoured wings as the flavours have already been well-soaked into the wings. Every morning, Jeremy will meticulously massage the wings to drain off excess marinade before deep-frying them to a golden hue and presenting them on wooden boards that makes this package ‘picture-perfect’. These wings are only freshly fried upon order so you can expect delicious, fragrant wings to arrive piping hot on your table.

12. Pig out on Spicy Bellychon with Rice from Iskina Cebu
In the past, the suckling pig was imported from Holland but now, you’ll get a taste of Spanish suckling pig, with generous stuffing of lemongrass, spring onion and other secret Cebu ingredients. Chef owner, Christian Calledo, is very particular with MSG and insists on not using it so customers get to fully experience the depth of each part of the meat. For Cebu cooking, it’s all about salt so Chris wants to remain congruent yet he lowered down the usage to suit localized tastebuds. The crackling skin and soft juicy fats goes perfectly with fragrant rice.
