Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014 in Singapore
We take a look some of the restaurants from Singapore that landed themselves in the list of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants.
Taking place on our sunny shores, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2014 by S.Pellagrino and Acqua Panna honoured the best of the best in the culinary industry.
With eight restaurants on the list, one of which won the award for Chef’s Choice, Singapore definitely has something to be proud of. After all, we’re well known for our immense love for food, aren’t we?
Here, we take a quick look at the Singaporean restaurants that won and the standout dishes that earned them those coveted spots:
#6: Restaurant Andre
At Restaurant Andre, presentation is key.
Keeping to a strict philosophy involving eight principals, Taiwanese chef Andre Chiang aims to merge art and philosophy together when constructing his dishes.
His philosophies, Unique, Texture, Memory, Pure, Terroir , Salt, South and Artisan, all involve very simple ingredients that, when put together, complement each other without drowning each other out. What’s more, each dish involves a wonderful display of colour and presentation.
Standout dish: Memory – warm foie gras jelly with black truffle coulis.
Simple yet flavourful dishes are the main characteristics of any dish at Waku Ghin.
With four private rooms, the formal restaurant situated in Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands features seasonal degustation menus including whole abalone with aonori (seaweed) and fillet of Tasmanian grass-fed beef with wasabi mustard.
If great food and ambience is what you’re after, Waku Ghin’s amazing views that overlook the Marina Bay skyline is perfect for you.
Standout dish: Marinated botan shrimps with sea urchin and Oscietre caviar
Homely environment and excellent food, what more could you ask for at Iggy’s?
As a restaurant serving international flavours, you’d expect the dishes at Iggy’s to be overwhelming at best.
However, Iggy’s (named after award-winning wine sommelier Ignatius Chan, who also helms the restaurant), manages to strike a balance with their offerings; serving only the best with exceptional seasonal ingredients. Vegetarians too have a special a la-carte and tasting menus.
You can look forward to being served dishes that not only calm your rubbling tummy but are a treat for your eyes as well.
At the homely Tippling Club, modern and fun culinary styles abound. With emphasis on colour, texture and unusual ingredients, chef Ryan Clift creates dishes that are unique and a complete feast for the eyes and tummy.
Playing with texture and flavours, you’ll definitely be in good hands by the chefs at Shinji.
Started out by sushi maestro, Shinji Kanesaka, this omakase restaurant oozes with understated elegance. Its interiors are so minimalistic that the sushi counters are made of a single Japanese Hinoki tree.
Instead, the focus is all on the food. Behind the counters, skilled chefs work their magic and create an odyssey of perfect sushi and fish dishes.
