1) Tiger’s Milk

The exotic name Tiger's Milk refers to the Peruvian citrus marinade aka leche de tigre. If you’ve no idea what Peruvian cuisine tastes like, now’s your chance to try some of the most exciting flavours from Latin America’s melting pot. Count on the usual suspects, including tapas-style picks, classic Carribean ceviches, and smoky anticuchos fired on a parrilla grill. For max indulgence, take advantage of the sharable portions with a group. A refreshing pisco-infused cocktail will sweeten the view atop The Club on Ann Siang Road.


Tiger’s Milk, 28 Ann Siang Rd, The Club, Singapore 069708

Don’t miss: 50% off for two, and 35% off for three, as long as you order at least two a la carte mains. Smaller orders get only 15% off. Promotional menus don’t count. Thanks to Amex’s Love Dining.

Instagrammable all-day dining and coffee

You might recognise the blue painted doors and vintage bicycles of Wheeler’s Yard on your news feed. Right up hipster alley, this bicycle workshop turned café is housed in an unlikely huge industrial warehouse. Expect simple brunch, pastas, rice bowls, and burgers, in which natural and fresh ingredients are favoured for a home-cooked touch. Drink choices other than coffee include teas, coolers, ciders, and beers. The quaint decor and ulu Balestier location add to the offbeat charm. Proven darling not only to bicycle nerds.


Wheeler’s Yard, 28 Lor Ampas, S328781

Al fresco intimate modern Italian in CBD

A prime choice for a business lunch or an after hours treat in Telok Ayer. True to the spirit of rustic South Italian cooking, Pepenero takes pride in humble but authentic fare whose full flavours come from using truly fresh ingredients. Put it to the test with some saucy pasta or chef picks like the cod fillet and traditional Tuscan stew. Check out the wine list for some Italian names you won’t easily find elsewhere. Keep the meal casual at the small but cosy al fresco area spilling out of the shophouse towards the street.

4) The Pipe District
Hearty Western meets industrial chic

Get the best of a neighbourhood watering hole and stylish upmarket pub at The Pipe District. Exposed pipes in the ceiling and repurposed pipe furniture work the industrial theme. If you do journey all the way to Science Park, you’ll be rewarded with a wholesome menu. That includes the Himalayan salt block selections, whose meats you’ll have a hand in cooking, and favourites like chicken wings and fish and chips. Dart machines, Archipelago draught beers, and BPL broadcasts are pluses. Not bad for big casual gatherings.


The Pipe District, 45 Science Park Road #01-09/10, Singapore 117407


Must-bring: Any Standard Chartered Bank card
Don’t miss: 10% off your total bill before 28 Feb 2018. Thanks to the Good Life Privileges from Standard Chartered Bank.

5) Opus Bar & Grill
Exquisite prime cuts and prized seafood

For the hefty price you expect of the Hilton, get your fix of rare meats and seafood sizzled to max smoky caramelised flavour at Opus. Highlights include the Rangers Valley angus, Kobe wagyu, and Glacier 51 toothfish. The secret to steak perfection is the specially commissioned Himalayan salt tile cabinet, where Opus’s perfectly marbled meats are aged between 14 and 36 days. Props to Opus, among the handful of local restaurants to get the chain of custody certification from the Marine Stewardship Council, for giving diners an option for sustainable seafood.


Opus Bar & Grill, 581 Orchard Road, S238883


Must-bring: Citi PremierMiles Card, Citi Prestige Card, or Citi Ultima Card, and if not, any Citi card will do
Don’t miss: 20% off the dinner bill for Citi PremierMiles, Prestige, and Ultima cardholders. Other Citi cardholders still get 15% off. Thanks to Citi Gourmet Pleasures.

6) Kinki Restaurant + Bar
Snazzy Jap joint for sushi and fusion

Photo by bananasarahhh

Big on attitude and big on gluttony, Kinki pumps some sumo-sized confidence into its gutsy fusion menu. Like truffle oil with sea bream carpaccio, foie gras with scallop or unagi sushi, and black cod with miso. Sashimi and maki lovers will not be let down by the range of fun choices. Don’t miss the equally wicked bar menu and the killer view of the Marina Bay at Customs House. Random tip: Check out the floor mural by Miami Ink tattoo artist Chris Garver and the DJ console vandalised by local street artist ANTZ.


Kinki Restaurant + Bar, 70 Collyer Quay #02-02 Customs House Singapore 049323
