EATSingapore: For Foodies, by Foodies
A dining privileges programmes that comes in book form, EAT Singapore makes it way from Sweden to sunny SG, making the island its very first Asian stop and the programme’s 16th. But what is so awesome about this book anyway? Present the book when dining for two at any of the 12 restaurants – each carefully handpicked by entrepreneurs Peter Ulrich and Karin van Vliet – to enjoy a one-for-one deal.
We speak to Karin who gets candid about each of the 12 dining hotspots featured in the book. Happy feasting!
(Psst! We’ve got a great deal for you at the end of the article, too – read on!)
When we miss Japan we go to Bincho – such a hidden gem, true to Japanese standards, and chef Asai’s yakitoris are unbeatable. You can see and feel the authenticity. Love.
We always end up bringing steak and other Argentinian goodies like cold cuts and wines back from the Deli at boCHINche. It’s so nice to be able to take it all home!
3. Cheek by Jowl
Our latest addition to the book – they offer Modern Australian and we were happily surprised. The chef’s attention for detail can be seen in everything and the food shows you a different side of Australian cuisine.
[Note: Flash the page that describes the now-defunct Sorrel to redeem a one-for-one main course or enjoy 20 percent off on the second set menu at Cheek by Jowl. You and your dining partner will get a glass of house wine too.]
When in need for a breezy dinner we go to Kilo – upon arrival for the first time you’ll think the taxi driver dropped you off at the wrong spot, but when you enter the restaurant you know you’ll have a great evening. And you will.
What started as a hole in the wall at Bondi – has turned into a range of luxurious outlets, with Singapore their first outlet outside Australia. We love their champagne & oyster special – especially since they serve our favourite champagne Billecart-Salmon!
6. El Mero Mero
We hear a lot of people miss out on the restaurant’s indoor area – this is where you want to be for dinner. Watching chef Remy in action and hearing about all the fresh ingredients they fly in from Mexico – just perfect.
7. Long Chim
Dinner at Long Chim means drinks before and after for us. Their cocktails are incredible (and strong, just the way we like it), whether you order from the drink list or get them to make something special for you on the spot.
If you think you know what you can expect from a Chinese restaurant, Mitzo will intrigue you. It’s different from anything you’ll have ever seen before and the food is spot on. Amazing.
When having dinner at OSO we can’t resist sneaking into the cheese room and check out what they have – dangerous and delicious at the same time!!
Every time we go to Saha we’re surprised about the menu – Modern Indian cuisine at its best. Try the trio of mushrooms, it will blow you away. And we haven’t started about their location yet… National Gallery. Do we have to say more?
We like it that the freshness of the seafood is guaranteed at Tburu, since they fly it in at least 3 times a week. It’s a great hidden spot right in the middle of Orchard Road.
12. The Black Swan
Stepping into the Black Swan is like stepping into old fashioned luxury – and they’re one of a few places in Singapore who serve great escargots with garlic butter.
