Restaurant André, Chinatown

Few dining experiences in Singapore captivate the imagination quite like Restaurant André. Taiwanese-born chef André Chiang has one key principle: each of the eight dishes on his ever-changing menu correlates to a set of eight elements. Octaphilosophy, he calls it. For example, the bold flavours in his foie gras with black truffle evoke the ‘memory’ of diners, whilst his ‘pure’ dishes are prepared without seasoning or the use of electricity. Yes, it sounds borderline pretentious, but with Restaurant André consistently ranking in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, the culinary world seems to think it works on a world-beating level. Read More...

The Tippling Club

After enjoying half a decade of success on Dempsey Hill, this critically acclaimed restaurant is enjoying a new lease of life after moving to the more central Chinatown area. English-born head chef Ryan Clift takes the meaning of the word innovative to a whole new level, with his miniature cheese cakes bottled up in prescription bottles just of of many dishes exemplifying that fact. Other odd combos include the omelette with smoked eel and caviar, which can be washed down with some beetroot, horseradish and sorrel juice.
