Singapore -50 shades of chicken and donburi- Bincho

image

This hidden little gem is housemate with the traditional coffee shop “Hua Bee”. Feel like a spy and enter by a door at the back (from the parking) for the best of Osaka yakitori cuisine brought by Chef Asai Masashi, specialised in the art of charcoal grilling. For dinner, go crazy with a kind of 50 shades of chicken menu. Or be reasonable and gentle to your wallet with the Donburi set lunch. Famous Chef and boss Andre (Chiang) is never too far to check on the quality of the sashimi or wagyu beef.

ASK: for the green tea ice cream to finish the hearty meal.

Singapore -The Curry Institution-Loo

image

Loo is an institution. And mister Loo father and son have been serious about curry rice since 1946. The one only to be found in Singapore, as hainanese cooks learned from the nonya families. As curry alone takes three days to make, the result is a winning recipe. You can choose from the pork and vegetable chop to the spicy prawn and squids… A long queue awaits you during lunch hour, a sign that’s good.

ASK: For some cabbage to complement

8 am - 2pm. Closed on Thursdays.
