Take your tongue on a trip to a faraway adventure.
There are essentially 12 countries in South America and about 20 within Latin America (and some countries belong to both geographic classifications) and you can find some traces of them in Singapore in the best way we can think of — food.
At Bochinche, Singapore’s only Argentine restaurant, you get to watch the team of chefs in action preparing your delicious food. We hear the chorizo croquettes and empanadas are a must-try here, and don’t miss their value-for-money lunch specials and brunch menu!
115 Amoy Street #01-02
This unique Peruvian rooftop bar housed within The Club brings the best flavours of Peru with the likes of para picars, ceviches, anticuchos, and pisco-infused drinks. They also offer an Inca Trail (of the gastronomical kind) for the best of Peru on your table.
And oh, why Tiger’s Milk? It’s an important ingredient in a Peruvian seafood dish, ceviche.
28 Ann Siang Road
This place has been around since 1994 and we reckon its longevity lies in its popular beef and grilled meat dishes, such as chicken liver (pictured), and rump cap. Watch how the Passador is served here. Had your fill? Round off your meal with Brazil’s national cocktail, caipirinha.
16 Sixth Avenue
If your idea of a zesty Latin American experience includes Latin cocktails (made with cachaca, rum, pisco, mezcal, or tequila only) and food from the region (ceviches, cubanos and more), head over to this 56-seat bar near Clarke Quay. Don’t miss your chance to get a taste of Brazil, Peru, and Argentina all in one spot.
42 Hongkong Street
Bet you didn’t know you could get Costa Rican cuisine at Lau Pa Sat and Amoy Street Market. Dive into some casado, chalupas or arroz con marisco for a change for lunch in the business district.
