Craving for a slice of home this Thanksgiving? Tuck into hearty grub from the other end of the globe at these American restaurants in Singapore.
Naughty Nuri’s may hail from Bali, but their fall-off-the-bone Barbecued Pork Ribs rival those in your favourite American BBQ haunt. Feeling naughty? They do a mean martini that Anthony Bourdain has crowned “the best outside America”, too.
