Singapore’s World Class Haute Cuisine Scene

    Singapore’s food scene is a serious business and extends far beyond the hawker and street stall phenomenon it’s widely known for. Business folk, expats and cashed up visitors sometimes need more than takeaway noodles and there’s a beyond burgeoning fine dining scene to sate their needs. With restaurants in Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei and Tokyo it made sense for Joël Robuchon to set up not one but two camps at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore. One bows to his atelier concept while the other goes all out with prix-fixe menus and wine lists of intimidation.

    Newcomers abound but Ignatius Chan’s molecular route is a little more firmly – ahem – rooted in the Singapore dining scene. It’s an East meets West fusion and there’s now bar seating for a more ‘interactive’ experience. Les Amis, one of the granddaddies of fine French cuisine is going 17 years strong and has a famous foie gras people book months ahead for.

    Go on. Make that booking. Credit cards and expense accounts aren’t meant to be saved for a rainy day.
