#B1-06 Palas Renaissance, 390 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238871
NEXT: Kogane Yama →
A mountain of golden tempura – choose from chicken, prawn, vegetable, or mixed – fills your bowl at Kogane Yama, lightly drizzled with a sweet-savoury sauce that cuts through the richness of all that deep-fried decadence. But before your meal reaches you, you’d catch a tantalizing whiff of the unique aroma, as each piece of tempura is deep-fried in a special soybean and sesame oil blend.
#02-50 Bugis Junction, 200 Victoria St, Singapore 188021
NEXT: COMO Cuisine →
Light touches elevate big flavours at this contemporary restaurant at its namesake lifestyle destination Como Dempsey. On the menu are dishes like the perfectly charred Masala Prawns (pictured), Beef Wellington with foie gras, and their special Big Raw Salad. Oh, and also at Como Dempsey: Michelin-starred Peranakan pride, Dover Street Market and more.

NEXT: Lickety SG →
Love Belgian waffles? You’ll love Lickety SG’s Hong Kong spin on it – pair the HK-inspired egglet waffles with their unique ice cream offerings like earl grey and fig or purple lavender. Also, can we talk about the adorable shopfront?
34 Bussorah St, Singapore 199452
NEXT: The Dark Gallery →
Chocoholics, here’s one for you: this artisanal chocolate boutique-cafe specialises in dark chocolate. Try their Single Origin Chocolate Pastries Platter (pictured), featuring a quartet of chocolatey delights that go from rich to, well, ultra-rich. And, grab their bean-to-bar chocolatiers home for round two.
#01-K5 Millenia Walk, 9 Raffles Blvd, Singapore 039596
NEXT: The Dragon Chamber →
The Dragon Chamber isn’t a restaurant you’ll ever walk past. This speakeasy is hidden behind a big oriental red door in Chinese restaurant Lokkee. For a concept as adventurous as this, the menu matches up – think Lobster Crispy Noodles, Fried Pork Belly Chips and even Dragon’s Claw, croc foot braised in herbal sauce. Even the Bakkwa Bacon Salad (pictured) looks like something out of an actual dragon chamber.
#03-01 Plaza Singapura, 68 Orchard Rd, Singapore 238839
NEXT: Pura Brasa →
The Spanish love Pura Brasa – this brand has several outlets in Spain – and the rustic vibes at its Singapore outpost almost transports you there, halfway across the globe. Expect classic tapas like Prawn Casserole, and more unique options like Melted Cheese Casserole with raspberry marmalade. Here in a group? Dishes like the Wagyu Tomahawk Steak are great for sharing.
