Sun-Kissed Flavors and More

Diners approach French cuisine — and restaurants for that matter — with a certain level of caution. With a reputation of being a little too posh, French fare is made more casual and accessible at La Brasserie at The Fullerton Bay Hotel. By marrying French brasserie classics and dishes that have the hallmark of “cuisine du soleil”, expect favorites-done-well like French onion soup, duck confit, and grilled côte de beouf alongside lighter, Mediterranean-inspired offerings like Aubergine Caviar Tartine, Sea Bass Fillet with a medley of vegetables, and a simple yet tasty Oven-Charred Eggplant.

A Taste of Home

Dining at Folklore is like having a special seat at Chef Damian D’Silva’s home, with delicious Singaporean soul food on the menu. Here, you’ll experience local fare as you’ve never had it before, which blends the chef’s Peranakan and Eurasian roots. Standouts include the Sambal Buah Keluak Fried Rice (which is good enough to eat on its own), minced pork and liver-stuffed Hati Babi Bungkus, Peranakan Chap Chye, and the spicy Beef Cheek Rendang. Save some space for dessert because the Kueh Kosui and Baked Custard with Gula Melaka should not be missed.

The Peruvians sure have a way with food, mixing bold flavors and fun with the simplest, yet freshest, ingredients. Experience all this (and more) at TONO Cevicheria, Singapore’s first authentic Peruvian hotspot that is the brainchild of Chef Daniel Chavez. Electrifying ceviche choices will bring your taste buds to life here, particularly the Ceviche Clasico and Yellow Pituco — fresh yellowfin tuna dressed with a spicy and tangy chili vinaigrette. Other Peruvian specialties that need a spot on your table include the Huaita, a roasted pork, mint, coriander, and bean stew, as well as the Tres Leches cake.

PBD Grows Up

Park Bench Deli (PBD) gave sandwiches a new lease on life when they started two years ago. Beyond fillings between slices of bread, PBD’s offerings were decadent, imaginative, and downright delicious. To mark its coming of age, the group recently (and quietly) opened 1KS by Park Bench Deli, an all-day café concept at the ground floor of The Working Capitol. Sandwiches are still a must-have here, especially the Short Rib ‘Swiss’, but save some room for an assortment of hearty toasts topped with a variety of fresh ingredients, loaded salads, and satiating healthy smoothies.
