Glad to be the first to write a review for this Best restaurants in Singapore. This is the much written about restaurant opened by Chef Andre Chiang, who used to helm Jaan Par Andre at the Swissotel Singapore, getting it to number 39 on the list of world’s Best restaurants in Singapore. Was waiting months for his own restaurant to open and was glad to get reservations during the first month. Both Bras and Andrieux had a profound influence on him, reinforcing the beliefs from his upbringing and highlighting the importance of the purity of ingredients in every dish.

Our thoughts exactly. Wereviewed the place a few years back and gave it a modest three stars.

I DO NOT get paid nor ask for free foods for writing good reviews of hawkers/restaurants I visited. I/We do pay for our meals although some may be paid with promotional meals vouchers bought through third party agents/platforms. If you’re a local (in whatever country I have blogged), go try them and find out if we share similar tastes. Also, when you come across good makan in Singapore, share them with me. Singapore, a multi-racial nation of Chinese, Malays, Indians and ethnic minorities, is a food haven. One is never far from a food stall, a coffee shop or a hawker center. So what should you try?

So tuck in with your fingers.
