Singapore

Some of the world's greatest cuisine

Distinctive Asian cuisines such as Chinese (in all itsregional incarnations), Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese and Indonesian are true to their origins and delicious. Continental and American influenced cuisine are almost as ubiquitous. Following are a few of our favorite places to eat, though a comprehensive list is far beyond the scope of this document. Dress code: please note that many of Singapore’s more upscale establishments require that men wear a dinner jacket. Casual “traveler’s attire”is not permitted.

LES AMIS

A cornerstone of Singaporean dining sophistication since 1994, Les Amis remains a culinary force with its two well-deserved Michelin stars. Dining against an elegant and contemporary backdrop, traditional approaches to classic French cuisine are creatively intertwined with local ingredients and Asian flair. Ravishing dishes like angel hair pasta with pâté en croûte and caviar will delight, as will the wine list which is considered the most extensive in Singapore, if not all of Asia.

BURNT ENDS

Consistently ranked as one of Asia’s 50 best restaurants, Burnt Ends refines the sultry art of cooking by fire. Customized cement ovens with grills positioned by pulley systems, designed by the restaurant’s executive chef, truly define the lengths pursued to achieve the perfect grilled flavor. A popular dining spot, you’ll need to book at least a month in advance.

LONG BAR

We would be sorely remiss if we did not steer you towards this famous, historic bar, one of Asia’s legendary watering holes and home of the cloyingly sweet Singapore Sling. The classic decoris reminiscent of Malayan plantations of the1920s. W. Somerset Maugham, Rudyard Kiplingand Joseph Conrad each downed a few at this languorous lounge while observing the ironies ofthe human condition. Just adjacent is the Long Bar Steakhouse specializing in prime rib.
