Where to eat in Singapore - Osteria Mozza

Osteria Mozza

Partly owned by US celebrity chef Mario Batali, Osteria Mozza serves up delicious Italian-American fare – accompanied by Batali’s choice of rock music – in a buzzing atmosphere. Make sure you reserve a table as there’s always a queue. On Sundays, there’s now a brunch that apart from serving Italian mains, focuses on baked goods made from recipes influenced by co-owner Nancy Silverton of the renowned Californian La Brea Bakery.

Insider Tip: The Italian sparkling wine Franciacorta from the Lombardy region is a tasty aperitif alternative to Champagne or Prosecco.

Equinox Restaurant

For a fantastic view of the city, head up to Equinox Restaurant on the 70th floor of the Swissotel The Stamford hotel.

Where to eat in Singapore - Waku Ghin

Waku Ghin

Ranked number 11 on the inaugural Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list by Restaurant magazine, Waku Ghin is owned by celebrity chef Tetsuya Wakuda and seats just 25, making it truly exclusive. Sit at one of the private teppanyaki counters with your own chef for an experience that’s part theatre, part cookery lesson. Signature dishes include Botan shrimp with sea urchin and caviar and Wagyu roll with wasabi and citrus soy – all perfectly matched with wine if you wish.

Insider Tip: The restaurant has just starting serving food in the bar along with its award-winning cocktails.

Where to eat in Singapore - Esquina

Esquina

Top-notch tapas is not just available in Spain but in Singapore too, at Esquina. Headed by Gordon Ramsay-protege Jason Atherton, who also runs the acclaimed Pollen Street Social in London, it’s a narrow corridor of a room with just counter seats. The fantastic food includes Spanish Breakfast (slow-cooked egg, bravas sauce, potato and crispy iberico), slow roasted ox cheek and ham croquettes. There’s also a good selection of sherries and Spanish wines for a full authentic experience.

Insider Tip: There’s a no-reservations policy so if you can’t be there at 5.30pm before it opens for dinner, come at 9pm when the crowd thins out.
